I am looking to replace my aluminum cyfac with a full carbon frameset. I can go either a Parlee z5 SLi (demo for $2500) or a Crumpton Corsa Team ($3400). I am torn. The Parlee gets rave reviews, and I have a Parlee TT that is awesome. Plus the price is very good. But the Crumpton is, well, a Crumpton. I like that it is made in italy by Sarto. I also like that there are fewer of them around. I need to decide quickly. Thoughts?

I would not pass up such a great deal on the Parlee. I've read a lot of good things about them, although I do not personally own one.

Crumpton has more niche about it. The price difference is not that great assuming you will keep the frame for a while.

Parlee for ex-demo is on the high side price wise. They are becoming as common as Cervelos were about 4-5 yrs back (here in London) ..

If resale matters at all- Parlee will sell better in the used market.
A Crumpton is pretty esoteric- a Sarto made Crumpton is an even bigger push.

Both are good bikes. Buy the cheaper one, or if money doesn't matter buy the one with the best colour. Personally I would choose based on warranty and experience on Parlee so far is that it's rock solid.

Thanks for the input. I chose the Parlee. Look for a build update in a few weeks.

Was going to chime in and push for the Parlee, but it seems you've already come to that conclusion. Parlee's are truly amazing bikes...
