Sharing my 2017 Parlee Altum that just got painted few weeks ago. I can't get over how smooth and compliant it rides. Definitely the best frame I've ridden with many attributes. Still waiting on couple more items and rides before it finishes up. Enjoy!

Interesting mix of drivetrain.

I love the color... was that not a stock offering?

Thanks, it was painted by Parlee - same color as the 2016 Altum R with some subtle changes.

Roughly 16.1lbs? I weighed it with the park tool scale and the lbs / kg didn't match. I'll weigh it again once I clean it up.

Great colour. How do you find the Parlee handlebars and stem? Did you cut the handlebars back at all? I have an Altum and am thinking about changing to them but not sure it it's worth it.

Very nice frame and color but IMHO in such high quality bikes the mix of groupsets is a big no-no.
