Go to the source: contact Tom Rodi at Parlee. He is very helpful and responsive.

The ride and performance will be essentially equal, its just that the Z1 can be constructed/built with a wider option set (tubes, geometry, etc). So the Z1 can arguably be built lighter. Like the previous poster said, Tom Rodi is the man to talk to.

Unless you REALLY know EXACTLY what you want in a frameset in terms of exact geometry, carbon layup in certain areas, tubing thickness, etc, you may not need all the custom options of a Z1. A Z3 still gives you custom tubing, size, paint, etc. The money you save on getting a Z3 instead of Z1 could be used toward the wheelset or elsewhere on the bike.

There both available in custom geo and with the same tubes. The difference is in the seat stay.

I think one of the biggest differences is the Z3 comes in a true sloping/compact geometry. You can get the Z1 with some slope but only a limited amount.

Pulled this Z1 photo off their site

I think a woven lugs and a Serotta F3 fork would look great on that bike.
