I was so excited to build the bike and ride it that i forgot to weigh the frame. I have ordered a set of CeramicSpeed BB30 bearings so I will get another chance to weigh the frame when i change the BB bearings and handlebars.

Truly a dream build - but I don't really get the bar/stem choice or why you're changing the BB cups?

Go with Edge/Enve bar stem and save about 70 grams.
The parlee Di2 option is still external and uses the heavy stock battery.

What would the weight be for the EDGE/ENVE bar stem be for 100mm stem. I have been thinking about these for my English build but was not sure about it.

I think my F99 stem is 96g for a 105mm and my bars are about 190ish.

I am really tempted to get edge bars and stem. Can I get them with enve decals now?

If you do get them with ENVE decals will you be changing out your wheel decals to match.

Also if you do get the bars and stems, let me know so maybe we can buy two of each at the same time for a better price?

The Enve wheels are heavier...will the stem, handlebars and posts be heavier too?

This close to getting a Parlee Z4 frame, your post don't help me decide against it :( - I see that you got a THM fork again? Why no EDGE.. Seems to be the norm for Parlee?

I really love the look of your bike. Also nice components.

Why are you going to change the fork? Just because it's an Edge/Enve or because the Scapula doesn't fit you well?

Did i say that i love the look of this bike!? :thumbup:

Well.. When i bought the Z4 I really wanted an EDGE 1.0, now I got one and I am really looking forward to trying it out. Theres nothing wrong with the scapula sp tuned, but the reviews on the EDGE forks are just too good for me to not give them a try.

Also I really like the EDGE /ENVE composites products, so of course that made the descision regarding purchase even easier ;)
Thats why I allso think about replacing the Pro Stealth evo combo with edge/enve stem and bars.
I am getting ENVE decals for my wheels, so I think it would look great with matching stem and handlebars.

On the Parlee Z4 vs Parlee Z3SL custom my first impression was that the Z3 is more stif and responsive and I feel more comfortable on it - mostly because its size fits me better than the Z4. I feel it climbs just as good as the Z4 - eventhoug it weigh less. I have now done around 1000km and participtated in 1 triathlon (600m/37km/7.5km) on the bike so I would like to put in more km's on the bike before writing the full review :wink:

Well, thanks eigner. There's nothing wrong with searching for maybe a better component! I know the feeling. :wink:

Your (and other black) bikes gives me some ideas for my next build.
