There's no denying it, we're still in love with aluminium road bikes, and when it comes to transforming this passion into a labour of love, we make a bike like the Allez Elite. If you're just finding your cycling legs, this is the best place to start.
Not only does a light bike feel better when you're climbing up a hill, but it’s also essential when you’re carrying your bike up to the 5th floor, and this was at the forefront of the frame design. With a redesigned E5 Alloy frame, the Allez features a class-leading weight. Aggressively thin-walled, yet tough, tubes have been implemented to save weight, as well, resulting in over a 450g (1lb) reduction in the frame and fork alone when compared to models of yesteryear.
Speaking of the fork, entry-level road bikes often times feature either alloy or cheap carbon fibre forks that greatly detract from the overall ride quality. But with a full FACT carbon fibre fork, the Allez is better handling, smoother riding, and lower in weight—floating over rough chip-seal and carving through corners like a slalom skier. For the geometry, we developed the Allez by utilizing our vast Retül fit database. This meant creating a geometry that’s sure to cover a broad range of positions, while still providing the performance-minded handling you’d expect from your first bike.
This Allez also features integrated rack and fender mounts, allowing you to get weight out of your backpack and on to a lightweight rack when you need it. This not only makes for a good road bike, but it also enables you to transform it into a fast commuter. Along these lines, you'll find plenty of clearance for 28mm tires, so longer rides become far more bearable and city streets much smoother.
For the build, we went with a no-nonsense approach, opting for reliable Shimano Claris shifting, durable Axis sport alloy wheels, and brilliant Espoir Sport tires.

The Bicycle allows us to experience and discover the world around us in an astonishing way. At BUMSONTHESADDLE, we don't want anything to stand between you and your next escapade. Hence, we completely reimagined how we deliver your bike to you. From the safety of the bike during Shipping to ease of assembly, we've created an industry-leading experience to deliver your bike faster, safer, and ready to ride in under 5 minutes.
Before shipping it to you, all your bikes are tested and tuned by our trusted and authorized bike mechs to ensure your bike is ready to ride safely,minutes after it arrives at your doorstep.
Once you order the bike from our website,It first reaches our Service Centre, where our mechs runs multiple tests on the frame and other components to make sure there are no defects or mechanical issues and to ensure that each component is functioning as desired.
Generally, all bikes are shipped in an unassembled state directly from the manufacturers factory. Hence components (especially derailleurs, brakes, headset etc) require adjustment before you ride. So, our bike mechs performs a multipoint inspection (we call it PRE-SETUP) where your bike goes through a detailed check up to ensure that your bike and component are dialled in to perform flawlessly, so you can focus on riding and not to worry about setup.
Shipping & Delivery
Once your bike is tested and tuned up we prepare it for shipping, Before shipping out your bike to you for safety purposes we remove certain components such as Front wheel, Seat post, Handlebar & Pedals. Once it's delivered to you, it just five minutes to complete the final setup and your bike is ready to hit the road. For final assembly we provide all required tools & Setup instructions along with the bike.
