^what you could do with the ENVE logo in the seat post is to get a red marker and trace over the white ENVE logo. You could paint over it with red paint too (if you have a steady hand or a friend who's good a painting).

That way you can match it with the Red Parlee frame logo before trying sanding down the seat post.

I've done it with things like carbon bottle cages with white logos. I traced over the logo with a yellow marker to "ghost logo" it and to match my yellow frame.

I reckon just get the BB Zipp post to match - much easier than faffing around with the Enve one, and the Zipp post is every bit as nice.

The BB finish is a nice contrast to the matte frame finish too.

If you mask the post well, painting is not that hard :wink:

I'll take the post for $5 USD, shipped. Make it happen :lol:
I think it would be fairly easy to black out the logos, or even easier just to remove them.
The Zipp stem looks a lot better.

Is it very cold in your apartment?
Your stem looks a bit... withered.

There is a wax finish at Parlee. It is one of the finishing options you can choose from.

Lovely racing machine, but can't say I like the CK headset either. A TUNE or a KCNC would look much much better.
