My goal is under 6kg and finally got around to doing it. I'm not big on pictures... so I apologize in advance. I'll try to breakdown my parts, but when I got the frame I was too excited to build and ride, so I never got around to weighing components individually. I'm a bit of a Rapha homer so I call the bike "Waffa" My previous bike was also a Parlee.. a Z5i.

Parlee's Z0 has been on my dream list for quite some time - I'm green with envy!

What'd the frame weigh in at? Colnago fork?

With your eTap build, I like seeing no der holes in the frame. Details always matter.

When you get some miles on your new dream machine, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the Clavicula, Praxis and eTap FD combo.

Colnago fork because I wanted to try direct mount EE's... yeah I gained about 30g with it though compared to Parlee fork. Colnago has Al dropouts, but I much prefer the look of the Direct mount EE brake. Fork is ~360g with 20cm of steerer (was 390g uncut) Sorry never got around to weigh the frame only.

Yep.. no holes in the frame for electric, so eTap only for now (shimano will eventually be wireless)

I've had it since late last year... so plenty of miles. The cranks and chainrings came off my old bike when I was using DuraAce ... So far the eTap FD has been problem free. I do have some Praxis Buzz chainrings, but have not got around to installing them yet.

As much as I dislike the aesthetics of the Altums, the Z serie is among my favourite looking bikes. And that one is a looker !!
love every part of it !!

thanks all..

I'm really tempted to jump on the disc bandwagon soon here.
Madone, BMC TMR01.. or just get a Parlee Z0 Disc
