  10. Sterling Roberts

    Why the heck is the Cannondale Synapse Alloy not in this comparison?

  11. richard green

    loads.of second hand bikes.that are just as good under a grand too. even under 500
    let some schmuck who knows nothing about bikes buy on expensive then a year later flog it for peanuts because they realised they didn't like it. laughing all.way to the bank.

  12. 5. IT'S ALWAY'S BETTER TO HAVE YOUR OWN BIKE TOOL'S IN CASE YOU HAVE TROUBLE WITH YOUR RACING BIKE.
    6. YOU SHOULD HAVE A BIKE PUMP FOR YOUR TIRES AND PATCHES IN CASE YOU GET A FLAT BIKE TIRE.
    7. ALSO WHEN YOU SEE CARS TO TRUCK'S COMING TORED YOU IN YOUR BIKE MIRROR YOU SHOULD ALWAY'S GET
    CLOSER TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD SO A CAR OR TRUCK DOES NOT HIT YOU AND YOUR BIKE. AMEN.

  13. YES – YOU ALL SHOULD HAVE A SMALL TINY MIRROR ON YOUR RACING BIKE FOR SAFTY. 2. YOU ALWAYS' HAVE NIGHT
    LIGHT'S ON YOUR BIKE AT NIGHT'S 3. YOU SHOULD ALWAY'S HAVE GOOD BREAKS ON YOUR BIKE. 4. IT'S ALWAY'S BETTER
    TO HAVE A VERY BRIGHT COLORED SHIRT ON YOU IN THE DAY AND NIGHT WHEN YOU RIDE YOUR RACING BIKE'. SO
    WHEN PEOPLE DRIVE THEIR CAR'S OR TRUCK'S THEY CAN SEE YOU WHEN YOU RIDE YOUR RACING BIKE. ALSO A GOOD
    COLOR OF A SHIRT TO WEAR IS YELLOW – TO ORANGE TO WHITE ] AMEN – JAMES CAMERON,

  14. After owning the 2016 Allez e5 for nearly a month now and having used it daily on rides of significant length, I can confirm that the brakes are rock solid.

  15. Just came home with the 2016 Allez e5 Sport in Black as in the review … beautiful Bike and very happy!

  16. Cédric Driver

    i feel weird that there is never the price in euros like a big part of the viewers might use the euro

  17. Donald Gillies

    It's really almost impossible to make a bad brakeset the differences in braking are almost entirely dependent upon brake-pad compounds and so a bike with not-great brakes can be easily fixed (just buy Koolstop pads or shimano high-end pads / holders).

  18. What do u think of 1.1 trek?

  19. I just got the planet x pro carbon shimano ultegra 6800 and really I should have watched this vid first.

  20. I would like to know if this is after or before taxes…because, you know, USA don't include taxes in the pricing while everyone else does.

  21. The E5 bike. Is there a height limit for the bike? for younger riders like me is there a minimal height for it? im 14 and im really short so before considering it i want to know if ill be able to ride it

  22. Great video! How do your bike testers like the cycology clothing kits?

  23. I love the crazy colors like (neon green) I like the matte black or grey with a matte orange,green,blue, or yellow.. but if it has a great color it's like 2,000 dollars🙄

  24. Just a quick question, What would be the main difference of Merida Ride and Merida Scultura? Which one would offer a comfortable and more upright position (For long rides)? Thank you!

  25. Who would waste $1000 on bikes? I have a $225 bike that works perfectly

  26. Cristian Montaño

    Very helpful, thank you!

  27. Brady Farrugia

    I am considering either the Giant Defy 1 or the Focus Cayo 105? What do you recommend?

  28. Jonathan Svoboda

    Does Fuji have any bikes that compare with these? Thanks.

  29. how much this trek road bike?

  30. Just got the 2016 Specialized Allez E5 Sport after watching this video a few months back.

  31. Best bike UNDER 500.00??????

  32. looking for my 1st Road bike I've saw a dawes giro 700 in my local bike shop but I've never heard of them are these bikes any good? any info would be appreciated thanks

  33. Thanks for the reviews as I'm a newbie looking for my first road bike. I'm runner, but would like to do some more duathlons. I test drove a Felt model that was entry level along with Specialized Allez. They sold both brands at my local bike shop. They felt fairly close, but wondering if the price different of 200 was worth going with Allez. Allez was higher.

  34. Andre Williams

    I am wanting to purchase my first road bike. I am deciding between the Allez E5 and the Caad 8. Still undecided. I feel either way I can't go wrong.

  35. neto demarchi

    Is it a good idea to update my Caad 8 group sora 9 speeds to Ultra 11 speeds?

  36. Emmanuel Palafox

  39. I have the specialized

  40. what is the name of the second bike?

  41. Karthik Shivram

    You guys should include Diamondback bikes in your reviews – some of their lower to mid range bikes in the Century series are simply stunning value for money.

  42. How do these bikes compare to a Fuji Roubaix 1.5?
