I had a bit of a look round and didn't see it elsewhere but I thought the weenies may be interested in the aero parlee prototype.

I like it. A lot.

Looks to have quite long chainstays and a fairly steep seattube though.

Bike looks like but nothing really new. Blog is a horrible advert for it.

Just read through all 8 weeks worth. Advert or not, I enjoyed reading it. I also think it's a beautiful machine and look forward to the final version. I guess after seeing this, the Storck, and the new Ridley I am developing a fondness for integration.

I meant his mini blogging of it. Anyway I dislike Prolly's blog as well. He could have only gone a step further by putting Toyota Prius in full caps

Well, he did say they are paying for it. So he is promoting his sponsor. It doesn't seem any worse than a rider zipping up his jersey and pointing to his sponsor's logo as he crosses the finish line at the end of a race.

Looked pretty nice until you get to the ugly seat clamp!

Disappointed to see the ISP on there. Very disappointed, actually. I'm hoping it was designed to be cut and converted to use a seatpost instead.

I'm assuming the rear brake is beneath the frame?

Naked carbon tends to look better in person than in photos.

Yeah, under the BB. You can see it here:

I like to see companies try to produce something that's at least evolutionary.

love nude carbon finish, hate the seat clamp and brake placement, front and rear.

stick the brakes where they should be and fit a normal seat pin and it would be one of the prettier frames out there.

Interesting development. Parlee had previously inveighed against aero tubing.
