Anyone have a pic of a Parlee Z5 in size large with the tall headtube?

Does anybody would have a picture of a Z5 SLi (or similar) in a M Tall size ?

When having a look on the geometry, it looks nothing else is different except head tube length (16.5 vs 14)...
I find this a little bit strange, some others mesures should have change, isn't it ?

It would means that this is just a "longer" HT to avoid spacers.

Many thanks in advance.

That is exactly what it is, a headtube extension. Looks a bit off, IMO.

Your right - it does look off - I had a Large in the tall head tube - it bugged me enough I ended up selling the bike.

That being said - if you fit on a Large with the Tall Headtube - the XL with a normal headtube will look better and have about the same stack - you probably just have to run a shorter stem.
