Thanks for the links to those reviews, they seem good and that was when it was priced at £600. As one of the reviews said the quality frame is what you are paying for and if required you can always up the spec on the other bits as they wear out or you feel you need something better.
£400 for a carbon fork and claris sounds about right if not a bit high, paying for it having Specialized written on it.

Not that it isn't a good bike but shop around and you'll get sora at that price.
You're paying for the brand.
Giant Defy 3 with full sora drivetrain is what I'd expect this sort of money to buy.
With £200 off it seems good value, especially for a Specialized road bike
Wanna race

​ Spec in description says aluminium fork.

I think better bikes have been posted on here for less money recently.
I think you can get better for less. The Raleigh Revenio 1 is still £299 at CRC and comes with carbon fork

Yes you can get cheaper bikes, BUT this is the cheapest price for the Specialized Allez 2015 that I could find, it's the same price at Tredz ( sister company) and the next cheapest is JEJamescycles @ £442.99 then Evans cycles and the rest are £480.
So just saying if this was the bike you wanted then Wheelies or Tredz are the best places to buy it
Much as its a good price for this bike, you can get a Giant Defy 3 for the same money from Rutland cycles.
Terrible brakes though. Never been a Tektro fan
Good for the price. Would make a decent winter bike of you're reluctant to get your carbon dirty.
Defy 3 for same money, much better!
I bought a T500 when it came out 2 years ago (now called 520). For the extra £50 you are getting carbon forks & Sora. I've used it for 3 sportives, commuted everyday & winter training (I did the 60 mile London to Cambridge in 3hrs). Excellent bike.

I fully understand that people will say that it's a deal because it "used to be" £600. However at £600...wow. You can get 105 components, gorgeous Mavic wheels & sub 10kg weight. The Mach 720 was reduced to £750 recently & that was full carbon/105 & 8.3kg weight.

A friend asked if there's any room in the frame to hide a motor?
I voted hot without any arguments, I have a full carbon bike with gears and brakes.
Nice find OP
I think id spend an extra £60 for the cube peloton at Chain Reaction
that has Sora , carbon forks and Shimano wheels
Cube Peloton

I've had this bike for about 6 months, got it as part of the Cycle to work scheme...so shopping around was a bit more limited. Anywho, good bike, haven't had any problems with it at all...which is what you want isn't it? Brakes have been fine, as have the gears, and the wheels just go round and round.

Totally agree...Cube offer excellent value for money.
Defy 3 pees all over this.
this is a great frame and been very popular for a long time, the downside is the kit, worth considering is chain reaction revenio 3 is 100 more but comes with 105 (5800) one of the best vfm chain sets.
