Here is a customer's build.

Beautiful Kandy Blue Parlee Z5 size:XL; short head tube; white fork

Big shout out to Starnut for his help. Nothing silly on it... yet!

Edge handlebars; stem; post
Fizik Arione K1 saddle
Tune skewers
Campy Super Record 2011 shift & brift; cassette
Wheels: Edge 45 & 68 on DT Swiss 240 hubs
Nokon brake housings with EE brakes
Cannondale Hollowgrams SI SL cranks 50/34

Very nice weight for an XL with custom paint. Frame was 982 grams; fork 346 grams. Enjoy!

I am tempted to lock this thread since that is about as close as a build as one can get to perfect!

magic build, very very nice! The bar tape isn't covering the whole of the bar, first time I've seen it done this way. Is that to save weight?

Nice :thumbup: I would have been tempted to put Parlee in blue on the forks but thats just my personal taste.

You're an jerk for posting my dream frame with basically my exact dream build minus a different seat and a full wrap of the bars. Thanks for ruining my hopes and dreams. :wink:

Oh, amazing bike too.

Is the white fork kind of like a pretty girl with a little imperfection that makes her even more beautiful?
