So what bike do I ride myself? If you follow me on Instagram you might now that one of my bikes is a quite customized Specialized Allez.

Initially bought as a Winter bike I was really surprised by its stiffness, so I decided to give it a go and ride it on Crit race, which had reassured me in stripping off all the original (quite basic) components. I just kept the frame and changed everything from bottom bracket, seat post, crankset, Wheels. Everything.

It might be not the lightest of all bikes with almost 8.5 kg, but that doesn’t really matter to me. Cornering on this bike is brilliant and on flats it is super fast.

The stiff aluminium frame also didn’t mind the below fail too much…
