Excellent job. Looks stunning.
I hope my build gets even close to this.
Enjoy it.

I have thought about that.. But I like the way the campag stuff shifts too much.
I'm gona contact ee cycle works about a black bushing kit for my brakes, can't really drop $600 on new brakes just for a colour change ;)
In a month or so there will be a v2 EPS upgrade kit going on!

750ml bottles.. Don't see the point of 500s. A fellow weenie once said to me the 500ml bottles weigh less that's why he uses em.. I said for short trips don't fill them all the way up..
Rather have the ability to carry more than less water , they do look large on this frame though

Simply brilliant build/bike....also endorse your choice on workshop bench top (yellow tongue flooring)....got exactly the same on mine (I removed the plastic yellow strip as I found not having a flush edge annoying)

Bike looks amazing...
Seeing this is making me develop an itch to get another Parlee.
I used to have a Z4 prior to my Speedvagen. I still want a Carbon bike for long hill days.
I'm surprised you chose the Campy FD clamp style over the Parlee Carbon FD.
Whatever happened to your Extralite SLX wheelset? I have an Extralite SLX Rear and SX rear I'm looking to build up for my future carbon WW project.

Only thing I could think complaining about was the use of sellotape to tape cables to the bars

I broke my SLX rear hub. I cracked the freewhub so I replaced it with IMO the better model unit the SPX/SPM hubs i still have the front hub in a box some where.
And it's packing tape and it's the best thing for nailing down the cables. It's light and doesn't stetch so the cables stay where you want em. I always use it

Ohh and I think the Parlee clamps are too flexy. Heaps of people have front shifting drama with them. So I use a proper clamp. Some things are worth the extra grams
