2012 Specialized Allez EVO Rival Mid-Compact

See how great road riding is on Specialized's Allez EVO Rival Mid-Compact. Its svelte E5-aluminum frame is paired with a FACT tapered carbon fork for a ride so smooth and responsive, you'll love every ride, no matter how short or long. The miles will go by easier than ever on speedy DT Swiss wheels, while the compact (with a 52/36 crankset) SRAM Rival 20-speed drivetrain offers a full spread of hill-climbing gears. And, the Allez EVO is spec'd with a choice spread of Specialized's tires and aluminum components, too.

Features and Information

  • View the geometry chart.
  • This frame’s head tube is 1 1/2 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems and not adding much weight.
  • Choose your preferred pedals (sold separately) from our wide selection.

Great Bike!

About Me


If you can get this bike on sale get it, if not still get it! What you get is an amazing value for a bike. The components work flawlessly. The bike is lighter than most low end carbon bike and can be even lighter with a few inexpensive tweaks. Overall a perfect bike!

Do not underestimate the Allez. The Allez is the standard by which other road bikes are measured that are anywhere near it's class, including carbon-fibre. Very relevant bike that needs to be considered.
