Yin yang I used 800 wet and dry to remove the clear coat and cut away the sparkly paint and acetone for the sliver paint.

Parlee looks only good with this short head tube top. Do not get the frenzy about other Parlees.
This one really is an exciting bicycle.

No problem with the lounge. :noidea:
But why on earth the 3K weave for the spacer?
Ok with mixing some glossy with mat but why not a UD or a mat anodized alloy one? :smartass:

so i got the cranks back form a guy who does custom MC painting and they look amazing and then proceeded too get the thing finished

put the WW wheels on and got it dialled in.. haven't ridden it very far but so far it seems very nimble ( its shorter in tt and wheelbase than the last one ) and its REALLY black :D

Nice bike! things came out great.

One question though, could you please post your pics in the size that the forum likes? they are so large that I need to scroll on my laptop.
Thanks in advance!

VERY NICE. but is it just me or is that front derailleur cable about 5 inches too long running up the seat tube? Maybe i am seeing things?...

I usually run a brand new FD cable quite long until it stretches, then I trim it really short.
