Bought this frame a few months ago, initially to sell on, but then as its my size and I have time on my hands, I thought I would build it up as a change to the Parlee for this year.....
The frame is nicely finished, it seems like similar construction and carbon to a Cervelo R3SL fame I had, but the forks are especially nice, a bit on the heavy side (which is a shame) but they do feel very solid and I really like the way inside the steerer is threaded, so there is no expander bung, just a large diameter ‘bolt’ that screws into the forks and then the cap screws into this bolt.
I have yet to buy a few parts but here’s a starter to ‘whet your whistles’….
