Wow! You did a really great job here. Love the logo, the bike, and your shop. Great follow through with pics for the whole project. Very nicely done and that's some low center of gravity you end up with.

Hi, I have a question about the BB for this crank/frame combo.
Do you need to use the THM BB? Or can you use the Parlee BB?
I'm trying to figure out exactly what I need to order.

Knoxxy.

Great looking bike, particularly with the 6.7's!

Are you going with Super Record EPS?

Super, super cool bike. Function, aesthetics and weight are amazing. I can't get over how great a BBB (boring black build) can look :D I can't think of much I'd change besides a stiffer stem and replacing the Devil's pedals :lol:

sugarkane,

great replacement and this Z5 looks even better (cleaner with EPS). regarding the Parlee FD clamp...if you're going EPS, the noodly clamp shouldn't have any effect or pull due to the tension cable of the mechanical kind. i'm using the Parlee FD with my DA9070 and it hasn't been any issue at all. i agree that with mechanical, it tends to pull a little more than it should.

love the new photos!
