Wow ! mr.jon have so many parlee for sale :thumbup:

eiger,

Can i ask , how do you take care of the frame? its seems like without a clear coat , its hard for me to clean it easy to damage. I plan to wash only with plain water after ride, and do you have any idea , how i can make the ugly bottle cages bolt and nut look nice ?

I just have a habit of buying without checking the bank balance ! :noidea:

For 'nude' carbon Parlee recommend using some Aerospace 303 protectant - just google it.

Thats a very nice Z3 you have ! Tune cages will not work on parlee Z1-2-3. The Ax lightness bottle cage works.

I have heard the Lightweight RD doesn't shift that well; what is your experience with it shifting under heavy load?
