The Allez comes in a number of models, component levels between and including Sora and DuraAce, two frame materials, and 2 women specific designs.

Which one ? Some are alot better and some are alot worse.

If touring (which means long distance loaded riding in case your using it a different way) is your top use, then don't get either of these bikes. Get something that can take racks, handle fenders with ease, and has a triple chain ring.

Whenever I've been in that situation, I've simply test ridden the bikes. One or the other has always found a way to tell me that it's the one. I suspect that it has something to do with fit or balance maybe even esthetics. That's the one that I buy. Whenever I think about it too much, I screw it up.
