Thanks OR
Parlee's are a healthy addiction.
The blue and orange look very nice in the flesh. The orange has just a hint of sparkle (specced Lamborghini Aventador Orange) and the guys at Parlee went out of their way to get the right shade. My road bike's a "safe" white combo so I decided to go a bit risky on this one. Glad I did. Really stands out in the wild.
Finally got the Selle SMP "just so" and am spending some quality time on it. Surprised on how well it climbs for a tri bike.
Enjoy yours in good health

Been a bit nervous about posting mine here with all the big budget bikes, but here goes:
Built this to a tight budget, all up cost was about $4300.
Z4 purchased from Fairwheel bikes (thanks madcow), 07 model i think, NOS.
Record 11 groupset
Planet X brakes & skewers
Cinelli Vai Palm Bars debadged (341g!) to be replaced by Velocite bars (181g)
Bontrager XXX stem debadged 110mm
Bontrager XXX carbon post debadged (208g)
Merek Mega saddle (114g), best saddle i have used, and i have used ALOT. Replaced a Prologo Scratch TS (270g)
KCNC plug & seat collar.
Velocity A23 rims, Record 32h hubs, DT Comp spokes.
Rubino Pro 25mm tyres.
I have some tubular wheels, not shown.
Have not weighed it yet on a proper scale, too busy riding it.

Some upgrades to come, like changing the bars and maybe the stem, but over all extremely happy with the ride. Best bike i have owned so far, and my last 2 were a Cento Uno and a B(a)um.

Thanks to Shifterbikes for the build, their sticker replaced the Bonty one on the stem faceplate.

Kudos on the Parlee and welcome to the group!

I also LOVE to hear about other people building up bikes like this on a budget. Again, congrats!

Waiting for a little Berk goodness to finish this bad boy!

It'll sneak nicely under 12lbs with the combo.
