Allied Alfa

Another impulsive eBay acquisition ...

Build: R12, Fulcrum Zero C17, Superleggero Stem/Post, Airone 00, R3 bars for now.

Shakedown ride felt great. More miles coming tomorrow. Expecting good things..

It's custom paint on stock geo and layup I believe. Made in Little Rock, AR. Innegra fibers and all that. Threaded BB. Build quality inside and out looks top notch.

Yeah, lots of drop - same 62cm nose to bars though as my others.



Pretty normal road geo and clearances. Not sure I'd have a reason to run 28s on here, but they'd fit. Little finish details are neat.



Finally a frame the Deda logos match! Going to strip all decals but the "F" from the wheels.



Had to buy the mechanical adapter - pretty nifty routing design.. The brake routing gave me fits until I figured out a little packing tape trick with an improvised safety-pin hook to get it snakes through.



Matchy Wahoo mount - needs a different top cap tho.. Was all I had on hand.

Front brake should be short by 2-3cm, just ran short on time.. otherwise it kind of is what it is w the routing.

Looks fantastic!!! Sweet paint! Sweet Campy Record 12! Now you just need some sweet Campy Bora tub wheels with Veloflex tires and you are set!!!

What size is the frame? Asking for a friend just in case this becomes available in the near future.

If you see a smoking deal on some Bora tubs, lemme know

It's a stock 58 (https://alliedcycleworks.com/pages/allied-alfa) - so 404 reach, 588 stack - 58.3 TT - 73/73.5 angles.. Just know that the steerer is cut for #slamthatstem - and even then, for a short-stack stem like the Deda I have on there. A new fork is $600 - they're made in house, not ENVE - so I'm glad the fit works as-is. And I intend to play with it for a while at least, but your friend will likely have an opportunity at some point

Quite lovely.
I too like the details, in particular how the Allied logo serves as the cable routing on the down tube, and the "Made here." logo.
I have a set of Bora tubs that I would consider some kind of swap for Shamals. The Boras are a sweet ride but I prefer the better braking.

Hmm, Racing 0s are basically Shamals, but I also like the braking and simplicity of alloy...

I think that falcon/firebird piece looks great, the angle of the cables is just perfect...great design. Congrats!

Don't know for sure, but I think Allied does it in-house. I purchased it off eBay from what looks like a photo-shoot or demo build. It had maybe a couple hundred miles on it, and zero signs of wear. The same seller had a 58cm Alfa Allroad, but that sold while I put an offer in on this one. I'd probably want to size up for the Allroad or Able anyway..
