I'm a first time poster to the retro road bike section ( but not to the Mtn bike section).
I've just pulled my wife's bone stock "Handmade in the USA" Allez M2 Comp out of storage. It is still in excellent condition and has not been ridden more than a few miles in the last 13 years.
I would greatly value the feedback from those "in the know" on RetroBike as to it's current value. Unlike our Rocky Altitude TO and DeKerf Generation, we may in fact put this baby up for sale.
Specs are as follows and compliments of bikepedia. As you can see from the pictures it is still bone stock and in truly exceptional shape.
