Pics are sooo bad, but my favourite photographer chose to leave the country so you'll have to cope with my lack of abilities...

Hey, the pics don't look half bad! Bike looks nice too! The WCS 'Wet Black' parts compliment the frame nicely.

And I told you to stop by anytime :lol:

Really nice looking bike. Looks great with the Jet's on it.

How does it handle compared to your old Trek?

The TREK actually handled very well (for being an entry level alu frame) but this one is simply amazing. A bit less agressive, but really nice.

Complete bike weighs around a kilo less than the TREK, that has alot to say too.

looks good I guy in our club has one and he is also really pleased with it.
I've just sold a Argon18 gallium S3 mainly because since I got the Parlee it wasn't getting any attention. However before i sold it I had a couple of 2 hour rides and to be honest it wasn't very far behind the Parlee.

good combo of ride quality stiffness and handling.
Parlee Z1 Gloss SR11 Ali rims
Parlee Z1 Wax'd SR11 Carbon rims
Enigma Etape Ti SR11 +rack

Future upgrades:

ZIPP 300 crankset with Token BB
Look Kéo Carbon TI pedals

The main goal is to go sub 7, so stem and post has to go too at some point.

A new set of wheels is in my dreams too
