Thought I would share my new ride, a Parlee z5i, courtesy of Sean and the guys at velocafe magasin.

I have to say Parlee have done a cracking job on the paintwork and were extremely patient during the render process. Sadly my pictures simply don't do it justice, but you get the gist.

In terms of build, there's nothing too exotic; SRAM Red, Mavic c40 wheels, Ritchey Superlogic II finishing kit. I was tempted to go with Enve finishing kit again, but I thought the Ritchey stuff had the edge (no pun intended) in terms of finish against the paint scheme.

One of my favourite Parlee paint jobs. Enough to warrant an update to your username!

The ride is superb, I haven't ridden anything as good as this and to be fair if have quite a few top end bikes over the years.

Unfortunately I have not got around to weighing it yet. The frame size is an XL, short headtube.

Tried updating my username, not least because my Orca went quite some time ago. But it won't let me change the username, which is a pain!

Lovely looking build - if it were mine the mavic stickers would come off the wheels - the yellow just dosen't go - otherwise really nice

The red on the frame and drivetrain is subtle so the yellow on the brakes and wheels doesn't stick out that much. Touches of blue on the seat clamp, cables or seat might work to even it out.
