    NBD: 2Fat, Not 2Furious

    Lo and behold, it is I, coming to bear proof of my recent purchase.

    Boom, motherfucking 2015 Specialized Allez.

    But what's this? A new saddle of course.

    Why? Because look at this sad motherfucking piece of ball-busting horseshit.

    Fuck that motherfucker.

    But it's still missing something...

    A god damn saddle-bag, who could've guessed?!

    And the last little bits of goodness, not only a water bottle HOLDER


    In all it's splendid glory, look up on it's moderately priced greatness

    I also bought these boss new running shoes that are stupidly lightweight and won't even register on anything but a food scale. It's insane.

    Awesome, awesome, awesome bike for the money. Looks sharp as hell, too. Go out there and kick some ass on it, man!

    The original saddle is actually quite similar to mine - I actually like it. The cutaway in the center helps a lot with pressure, but getting a saddle that feels comfy to you is of course a very personal thing.

    Fuck. Yes.

    Once you get comfortable on the bike, consider a good set of clipless pedals and shoes. They put your feet in the right position for proper leg motion when pedaling, and give you the option to give your push muscles a rest by pulling up. Now, get out there and ride, since I've got a whole pile of Strava kudos queued up.

    Congrats on the new bike! It looks really sharp.

    I'm thinking about getting a new bike once I graduate (soon) and find a job (hopefully soon). The Allez seems like a good candidate.

    Wirelessly posted

    Went out for about 20 minutes, pretty sure I did like half a mile and I thought I was gonna die.

    I suck at this.
    Like, holy fucking shit terrible.

    Time to do more reading on shifting and all that jazz l, since I probably wasted energy in the wrong gear

    Congrats, that is a NICE looking bike.

    Funny thing - normally the stock seats on bikes suck for me - they're hard as hell. But the stock seat on the Trek Domane I tried out was actually very comfy & didn't bother me at all during my test ride. It had that split-seat thingy like yours.

    Bike looks familiar lol

    Nice dude! I'm riding the stock seat, which I actually like a lot, but everyone's ass is different.
    It's a great bike. I would tilt your bars back a bit and get those hoods more uprite. It will make riding a bit more comfy.

    Congrats man
