great looking bike!

white saddle/tape and tanwalls look perfect with the frame.

a hollowgram would suit this bike nicely i think...

I hate tan sidewalls and would go with Claviculas, perhaps M3

For me the new Dura Ace cranks do not fit with just about any bike on the market today...

Specialized cranks with logos sanded off. That way you can still rock an SRM and keep the same q-factor as the DAs. You'll also lose 220 grams. Boom!

I wouldn't change anything. Looks like a solid setup that's ready to eat miles.

Thanks for the comments, the tan walls definitely are an individual thing. I like how they break up the all black look.

Rims are great so far. I am a big believer in the wide rims. Brake track is smooth. Weight seems reasonable. All around happy with them.

Beautiful, but then I already am a Parlee believer and have the Z5 SLi.

I don't care for the tan sidewalls either, but if you really like that look then why not go with tan bar tape as well.

Love the bike! Classic but a real riders bike!

I would suggest a THM M3 SRM, best looking crank I have ever seen and would fit this bike wonderfully!

Parlee have quite an old fashioned look in my view. Particularly around the head tube. They look a bit like they are steel, so the tan sidewalls sort of fit.

Great if you like the vintage look as they are a brilliant ride.
