Quick Z-Zero tease...

Dura Ace Di2
ENVE Cockpit
THM M3 with Praxis rings
Custom Xentis 5.8/4.2 Silver Lines on White Industries Hubs
Selle Italia SuperFlow
Look Keo Blade 2 Titanium
Custom paint and geometry

Feedback from the customer was awesome.
Said it compared favorably to his Cervelo R5CA for stiffness, with smoother road feel.

Weight was barely legal!

Very nice.
But I really don't like the shape of those Enve stems at all

yeah the enve stems are fugly.

On this particular bike it would be nicer if all the enve logos were blacked out, match the frame better. Still its a nice looking machine.

Beside the fact that this is a nice built up I do not like shape of this Enve stem . Same would be for 3T Carbon (Ltd) or Look stems.
You will know why riding the 4Seasons tyres but the white edges of this bartape is a detail you can get rid of. Look how I did it with the same tape on my
bike.

:P agreed, Enve's stems have never been their strong suit.

The Parlee graphic on the other hand... that's pretty cool.

That bartape experiment blew my mind!!
And we have started blackin out our ENVE components now...much cooler!
We use Velocolour in Toronto for this service for customers.

Best,
Mike

Parlee-graphic looks great, the white enve-logos dont match.

All in all great-looking bike!

But i would prefer equal-deep wheels.

Funny, I look at it and my first thought is, why does every think ENVE is the default top end choice for finishing kit because it's way too heavy handed for me. Then I think, God, don't like all the white on the bar tape. Then I think the Parlee decal is pretty cool. Then I spot the 4 season tires and wonder why. Then I read the replies and realise I'm not remotely original and everyone's had the same feeling!

the parlee-enve combo reminds me of the cervelo-3T combo a few years back. i remember seeing 3T components on every other cervelo...not a bad thing, just got a bit predictable.

...that's why i made it a conscious effort to avoid enve components on my recently-built parlee :lol: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=130906
