RE: Allez Comp DSW

So it looks like they've gotten racier with the Allez Comp since I last had a look. I checked out the Allez DSW geometry and it's within 1mm of the basic Allez, so it seems like the main difference is stiffness.

I've always liked the Allez as a good all-around road bike for riders who are fit but not super-serious, and I've had several friends who owned them (or the Dolce). I don't know the Allez Comp nearly as well. My friends who upgraded from the Allez skipped right over and it into $3-5k range.

I have a couple of friends who own Litespeeds and they really like how they ride. On paper, Titanium offers perhaps the ideal combination of weight, energy efficiency, and ride quality. Unfortunately, they're a bit too short (front to back) for me, otherwise I'd probably own one.
