This bike replaces my Parlee Z5. I did not like the way the Parlee Rode; it was too sluggish compared to my other bike a Cervelo R3SL. Took it out today for a 68 mile spin on some hilly roads. Hit a few gravel sections happy I had the Gatorskins. Too early to tell the difference between the R3SL and the CA. Did feel very stiff and planted on all the climbs.
Big thanks and Kudos to the Lightweight local Guru and Weight Weenies member Sedluk for all his expert advice suggestions and professional meticulous assembly of this dream build.
