Had my 2nd Parlee for about a year now. Pretty much couldn't be happier! Just love the look of lugged carbon- a little old school mixed with a little new school!!

Build list:

Frame: Parlee Z3 with a custom blend of SL and regular tubes.
Fork: ENVE for Parlee
Headset: King
Stem: Zipp Speed SL- striped down to match the frame
Bar: FSA K-Force
Seat Post: ENVE
Saddle: Fizik Alliante- soon to be a Selle Italia Teknologika Flow carbon
Group including brakes: Dura Ace 9000
Wheels: ENVE 3.4 clincher
Skewers: ENVE Ti
Tape: Lizard Skin
Bottle Cages: Whisky carbon
Tires: Pro 4

6.77 kg

So I really like the DA9000 cranks- great shifting/stiff but I really wish they matched the bike better. Anyone have any experience getting cranks powder coated? To my knowledge anodizing won't work because of the steel shift pins in the chainring. Should i just get over it and leave it alone?

Personally I like the DA9000 cranks on the matte Parlee frame, but I'm also biased because I have a similar Z5i setup.
