RE: About geometry

I don't understand the appeal of super steep, sometimes bordering on unstable 'crit' geometry.

I also ride motorcycles, and have owned some performance motorcycles and have done many track days. From my perspective, any reasonably designed bicycle takes practically zero effort to turn, and even on a 29er mtn bike you can change lines in the blink of an eye. You simply need to know how to counter-steer. Perhaps a lot of bicycle riders were never taught?

Also, the only racers you'll likely find riding an Allez Comp are Cat 5 beginners. Most Allez buyers are recreational riders for whom stiff frames with steep geometry are a detriment.
