Just joined WW today and thought I would say hi.
Currently riding: 2007 Parlee Z3SL & 2008 Guerciotti Custom(my commuter bike)
Road Bikes I have owned:
1998 Specialized Allez Pro
1999 Specialized Allez Pro M4
2001 Specialized S-Works M4 Festina
2001 Specialized S-Works E5 Festina
2005 Colnago Dream HP
2006 Pinarello F4:13
2006 Colnago C50 HP
2007 Colnago Extreme-C
2007 Parlee Z3SL-currently riding
2008 Guerciotti Custom-currently riding
My Parlee is far and away the best bike I have ever ridden. It is as comfortable as the Colnago Dream HP, but is light and nimble. It sprints better than any bike I have ever ridden. All the reviews you read online are spot-on. This is the best bike money can buy.
Have been riding HED wheels for the last year+. The Jet 90, Jet 50, Hed H3C & disc. In 2005-07 Zipp 808's and 404's. Before that I rode Spinergy (Rev-X Team/Tillium/X-Aero), Rolf (Vector Comp/Vector Pro/Sestriere), Mavic (Ksyrium SSC/Cosmic Carbone/Cosmic Equipe), etc.....I am looking into getting a Lightweight Gen III Standard wheelset.Check out my website.
Some pics of my Parlee. Scratched up the frame last year in a sprint (no carbon damage thankfully) and so I stripped the frame down and redid the decals and paint. Most I bought from Paree directly. The rest I desiged in Photoshop and had custom cut. Enjoy! Current weight with the HED 50/90 wheelset=6860grams (15.12lb). With Lightweight Gen III Standards weight will be 6059grams (13.36lb). Very light considering that all components/parts are race ready and tested. Many of the components have thousands of miles on them. No foo-foo-for-show-only parts.
