Very nice! What color is the "white" one above? Looks a little darker, maybe pearl or oyster?

Thanks!

The color is a 'shell-white' from a 82 Volvo (no kidding!).

This frame is now at Parlee being stripped and repainted with a new color scheme,
2/3 stripped and 1/3 painted.

Here’s another shot with the new brakes and bottle cages. I’ve also added a set of Enve [nee: Edge] carbon clincher rims to this ride so that I can train and race. The new rims have Tune Mig/Mag hubs in purple anodised finish [and some of the new Tune skewers in a complimentary purple/carbon].

I’ve another new ride that I’ll post pics of in the coming weeks...

Here's my Z3 (as it was after I got the frame back from Parlee following a refurb).

Please ignore the saddle height, I only just got it built up then took the pic. I didn't want to risk marking the post by sticking it in too far).

Changes now made for this year:

Chris King headset changed to black.
Cranks changed to Rotor 3D's.
Forks custom sprayed (black lowers, white shoulders, red pinstripe between the white and black and red pinstriping around the 3T)
Parlee seatpost clamp now black.
Cateye sensor now on the correct side of the fork leg :oops: (trailing as opposed to leading edge)

More pics to follow soon.

Both sweeeeet looking bikes!

Musiker - be nice to see some better shot so her!

Lardlover - awesome two tone paint job man!

What’s the refurb job like? Typical Parlee perfection?

I’m thinking that I’ll get them to do the Di2 upgrade on my Z1 in a year or so (or whatever the latest electronic version from Shimano/Campy/SRAM is then).

Cheers :beerchug:

What's the refurb like?? If it wasn't for the tiny marks on the rear dropouts from the wheel QR's I would swear they put a brand new frame in the box :shock: 8) 8) 8)

Needless to say I may be sending it back again (next year probably) for something else.

Thanks! I will, but at the moment the frame is dirty with dried up mud (Yes I use my Z5 in bad weather) and dident get it cleaned before temps dropped below freezing).
Hope to get it washed in the weekend.. then Ill try to take some pictures with my feeble photoskills!

Musiker:

You use your Z5 in wet weather????? You're a braver rider than I am. The Z1 sees only sun (but then, I live in Australia and we get more sun than not here!).

Ozrider:

Have you noticed that under the BB of the Z5 the rear derailleur cable rubs directly on the frame? I was cleaning the girls Z5 today and noticed this - bit of a design fault! I'm thinking about putting a frame protector spot on this area, but the cable would most probably cut through it in no time.

Just thought that you'd like to check yours... I'll be checking my Z1 tomorrow (left it at the store - going to do some work on it tomorrow).

Cheers!

My new ride to be:
Parlee Z4 Large (Thanks again to Madcow :up: )

Coming: 2010 Record derailleurs & crankset, 2011 Record shifters, Chorus chain & cassette
KCNC C6 brakes, wheels as shown or Ambrosio tubs or 50mm tubs.

Would like some input as to which bars, stem & post to use. Budget is a major influence.
Bars: Im looking at Cinelli Vai Palm XL. I like my traditional bars but these seem to have the bonus of the flat tops. Currently use Deda 215 & Newton
Stem: Thomson, 3T, KCNC, Easton or Pro.
Seatpost: Thomson, Easton EC70 zero, 3T, KCNC, Woodman

fletch62:

Bars are a pretty personal affair. I use 3T Ergonova LTD - I like the shallower drop and flat tops. As for stem, I'm currently using an Enve [nee: Edge] unit on the Parlee, but have a Thompson on a track bike. I also happen to have a Thompson Masterpiece post on the same track bike. Thompson make utterly bullet proof stuff - light, strong and good looking. I didn't use them on the Parlee purely because I wanted to go for all carbon.

What saddle are you going to use? I ask because they rail size/type is going to dictate the brand/type of post you use - if you're using a carbon railed saddle with ovalised rails then you're limited in the brands of posts you can use.
