very tidy.

How does it ride, always fancied a Parlee. As good as you hear?

Also, please take the warning tickers off the wheels.

The stickers are coming of this afternoon while watching Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne ( well, it's snowing here, 5k from the start, so don't know if it's going to be ridden). It's assembled in a hurry because I wanted to ride the KBK for amateurs.

It rides really good ( not to stiff, not to comfy), I really like it a lot ( since 2010: Cervélo S2,S3,S3,R5,R3,R3, ColnagoC59).
Was really happy that they are selling them in Belgium!!!

This the 3rd Z5SL to be posted in as many weeks... it's not helping me fight my desire to own one.

That's an absolutely superb bike :shock:

@jz4nyc: with Power2Max and Hyperon clincher (1385claimed weight), heavy skewers ( removed the decals on wheels and the inner tubes with a shorter valve).

6.830

The inner cables in frame add a lot of weight I think. Next year I'm going Campa EPS ( if they have an integrated battery system that is).

Very cool bike, the wheels look awesome with that frame.
But the saddle doesn't look like it would be nice on the Belgian cobble :)

I got a couple of questions if you don't mind, since I'm working on a similar build.
Did you have trouble fitting the grommets around the cables in headtube and chainstay ?
Do you notice any rattling from internal cables when riding ? I felt that the rubber sleves to prevent rattling were kinda short.
What size frame is this and do you know the weight on the frame/fork alone ?

This is a fine built. I like it.
Bike looks so clean especially in the snow and in front of the water color like painted white brick wall.
Pure art. :thumbup:
