Brand: Parlee 2012 Z5 SLi with custom repaint

Final weight: 6.42kg /14.15 lb as shown, all in and ready to ride (have a carbon saddle and lighter wheels in the basement that knock off about 160 grams but this is how it is today); posted before but this is the first time with the detailed list of weights.

Parts list (adds up to only 6388, I'm not sure where the other 32 grams are hiding):

I just realized the Garmin GSC-10 speed/cadence sensor isn't on the build list...that's another 25 grams or so. So almost eveything accounted for...

...changing out to a Mcfk Expander Plug...that'll drop another 25 grams...that's about the best gram/cost ration I've found in weight weenie land...

Did you notice the blue recycling bin in the background bowing in admiration?

Sweet ride - love it!

Have you thought about taking a hair dryer to those Zipp decals?

Yes, but I'm going to put on some matte black Zipp decals instead of going naked.

typical 50 mile ride from my house has about 3K feet of climbing, so not so much. i am an old fat lazy guy, though. and i do have a 52/36 set of chainrings i haven't put on.

Matt decals on the zipps will really tie in with the rest of your build, real nice

Yeah, I put the black stealth decals on the Zipp wheels, they look better...and they're actually very very nice wheels...

I like everything but the saddle. A little less profile would imho look better.

Saddle is for comfort, not looks, for me on this one.
