Very similar to Joemk12's...
My wife orgainzed this as a surprise for my 46th birthday. We do not have a Parlee dealer locally. So, she actually went to the shop I frequent and inquired about acquiring a Z5. They went through the process to become a dealer. In the mean time, she had some serious health issues that left us with some medical bills (our previous primo medical plan became very mediocre due to excessive costs from the new health insurance regulations) that depleted the build fund. I refuse to take money out of savings or pay interest on a credit card. So, I temporarily built the bike with my old Ultegra from another bike. It weighs 15.76 as pictured with demo saddle.
Z5 M tall
Full Ultegra 6500 (temporary)
Cannondale Sl carbon cranks (temporary)
3T Team bar, stem, post
King stainless cages (temporary)
Reynolds 46 clinchers
I have an Arione CX carbon railed saddle to be installed. Build will be new Red with brakes and crankset to be determined. Please, be gentle with the position, spacers, uncut fork, etc. as position is not yet finalized.
Most importantly, my wife is fine!http://i.imgur.com/xbQow.jpg
