Hi guys..

Got bored before dinner and decided to line the guys up. :)

I've been a cycling fan as long as I remember. It's been a pleasure seeing the rides here on this forum.

Here's a pic of my rides..

Best,

JoeImage

Joe, Welcome! A very nice collection of bikes for sure! Cross, tt, road and possibly an mtb in there?

Wow, nice Parlee cx bike. Do you happen to have a frame and fork weight on that?

Thank you Juanmoretime! Like most riders here in the forum, the gaggle of bikes weren't an intended collection. The bikes just amassed through the years :D . So, I can't call it a collection.. probably a loot. The "Honey, this is the last one. I swear" conversation lost credibility in our household.

No MTB here. Cross is closes I get to dirt.

Thanks Justkeeppedaling and Louis for your kind words.

Ride safely..

Joe

Thanks F45. You are very kind. Unfortunately I didn't put the frame on the scale before it was built. It would be a little gram-mier compared to a regular Z1 with XL tubes. I'm not that concerned with weight. Being a Parlee rider for the past 5 years, it was more of a given that the build will be light in general terms.

Best,

Joe

Thanks tibikeboy! I don't have a singular favorite and pretty sure folks here can relate. These became a gaggle of favorites through the years. They are the bikes I cannot part ways. The SOMEC for example was my first favorite. It was a special day when I took it home 10 years ago. Some more bikes came and went but these, I believe, are the survivors of the sifting through process.

I am building a Parlee Z4. It was a true favorite when I first rode one in 2008. I sold it when the Z5 came in. Bad decision. I've always regretted letting it go especially when they discontinued it. I'll post that too when I'm done with it.

I'll try to comply with your request in the near future.

Best,

Joe

Very nice! I'm jealous.

By the way, where is the wife in the picture saying... "WTF? why do you need so many bikes? Can you not just sell some? This is ridiculous"

Was wondering when you'd post them santosjep :) as some have said, it would be great to have some solo photos a brief on how the loot was built.

Oh, any secrets with the wife on how she allowed you to have that loot? :smartass:
