Frame has finally arrived! Been waiting on this one for a while - my new 'gravel bike' (depending on your definition). Will be my new winter trainer and also 'dad bike' - something I can pull a trailer along with my son in it (when he's old enough). So I suppose it's a bit of a do-it-all bike, and one that I've been procrastinating over for months! Spec will be as follows:

Frame & fork: Parlee Chebacco custom asymmetric paint
Cockpit & seatpost: Parlee
Wheels: Enve M50/Fifty (tubeless)
Groupset: Shimano XTR di2 / R785 hyro
Discs: 160mm front, 140mm rear Shimano
Tyres: Compass Bon Jon pass 35mm extralite tubeless gum wall
Bar tape: Rapha / Cinelli black & pink
Cages: Arundle Mandible
Top cap & expander: MCFK
Saddle: my trusty old Specialized Romin pro carbon

More pics (and weights) to follow...hopefully collecting next weekend!

Love the base color and the two tone colors fits nicely, looking good so far :thumbup:

Nice! As an owner of a black/white asymmetric painted Parlee always like to see different paint jobs

I like the paint job. Bold enough to be different, but it doesn't scream 'look at me'.

Thanks for the comments. I haven't seen it in the flesh yet, but I reckon it'll be even better!

Huge kudos goes to the bike builder, Velo House in Tunbridge Wells (UK). They've come up with some really creative ways to hide the cables (see pic below). Should be a really clean build!

What is the base color? Trying to finalize my Chebacco color scheme.

Colours are as follows:
Dupont 6334 (Main frame) - as proposed by Parlee. I originally asked for a 'nardo grey' and ended up here!
Pantone 232 (drive side decals)
Pantone 333

Looking forward to seeing how yours turns out @alphadogcycling

Almost complete! She's a beaut!

Before the spacer police start- this is pre collection so awaiting final tweaks on bars and saddle....

Agree, I didn't think pink would go so well with that grey colour but it does.

Yes! Ish! These images are pre-final...lost 15mm of spacers now, added a Garmin mount and Arundle Mandible and adjusted the saddle.
Also- Parlee have 3D printed a cap for the from derailleur mount so that it doesn't look like it's missing. It's being painted to match.

More or less finished now! Need to remove the DT Swiss decals from the wheels, and Parlee have 3D printed a front derailleur cap which is being painted to go on soon.

It rides like a dream- such a huge difference in comfort over 25mm tyres, which naively I didn't expect. It's fast too. Compass tyres are great!

Very pleased with the weight considering the paint, discs and tyres!
