Hey all,

Thought I'd post some pics of the new ride. After putting Di2 on my father's new bike, I pretty much had to have it. So I downsized the garage a little bit and got this beauty. Thanks to everyone at Parlee who worked on the custom paint with me. Here is the full build list:

Parlee Z5 SLi - Medium
Dura Di2 group
ENVE Compositite 64mm clinchers
Deda Zero100 Cockpit
Thompson Masterpiece seatpost
Arione saddle

Let me know what you think! I'm pretty damn psyched with how it came out.

Nice build and cool to see a custom paint job. I would have gone without the Parlee on the top tube.

Love the paint job, looks ace. Nice to see a unique parlee.

Nice job!
Frame colour matches perfectly with Shimano Di2.

It weighs in at just about 14 pounds with pedals and bottle cages. So probably about 13 and change.

Love the paint.....don't like the wheels as the carbon doesn't really match, too deep also for my taste. Some C24 tubulars would look the dogs. Nice bike though!

A set of Bontrager Aeolus D3 35mm would look the mutts nuts on there. Agree about the carbon finish on the wheels also.

Thanks everyone...I'm actually thinking about the ENVE 3.4's for this guy. i've had these wheels for a couple of builds and it's time for something new.

Wow, I simply love that paint job! the dura ace components match it as well. Killer looks. [fashion comment]Is there something to be done to the stem and seatpost not being from the same manufacturer?[/fashion commen]

Yah I know. There might be. I may need to look at the Deda posts. I like a zero setback so my option is really 3T on that.

Great build. WOW. Just perfect paint.

I was considering a Cannondale Evo for an upcoming new WW build, but now I think I have changed my mind. Frame weights for my size are the same and a Z5sl like this is too nice to pass up.

:thumbup: I'm sure you will enjoy.
