Stunning, though I would perhaps prefer more subtle looks, but that is just wicked sick!
Not to mention the weight...

Just another black Parlee right? Wrong, it's a mobile work of art.
The attention to detail is incredible. A stellar build by Pez.

I think the far and near brakes cheapen the build a tiny bit...

This is something similar that I'm doing with my build (but no where near as extravagant).
There are some details I'm including on my CAAD9 that aren't readily visible.
Have carbon added here & there (bar end plugs, chainstay protector, etc...).
One particular detail is too juicy to reveal, but these I can share...

There is a manufacturer warning label at the base of the seat tube that's white and sticks out like a sore thumb on a BBQ Black frame.
I was going to paint over, but came up with this custom made sticker to apply right over it (the lettering under the CAAD9 will be cut out):

Image

I was going to order another custom sticker to replace the Cannondale Logo Head Badge.
It was going to be a Riddler Question Mark that I really like, but didn't like the idea of
replacing something as substantial as a head badge with something as flimsy as a sticker.

Image

Then I remember wanting to get a Patron Saint Medal of The Madonna del Ghisallo:
http://www.cyclingnews.com/features/la- ... of-cycling
I came across the perfect solution...a Madonna Head Badge.
Ordered it. It's going to replace my Cannondale head badge.
I will more likely than not paint it Cannondale BBQ Black
to disappear into the frame's head tube. Or, maybe I won't.

Oh sweet. This is the NAHBS parlee showbike, isn't it?

Here is the article from Pez Cycling.
I'm surprised at the claimed weight. I'd have to weigh it myself to believe it. With claimed 1282 gram Zipp 404 tubular wheels, these don't seem too light for such a claimed low weight.

Unfortunate paint job with silly writing. Could've done so much more with custom paint than a comical ACDC theme.

If you have a BBQ CAAD, can't you just pull the sticker off? Even if it wasn't a BBQ, I thought those stickers weren't under clearcoat?

As far as I know it is under a clear coat.
This sticker would be cut to size and applied right over the label.

Edit:
Here's what it turned out to look like...
