I know how boring ... another Parlee Zero this time XD. Frame had B.B. (105g) and hanger (?) so under 1kg for a medium with mix of UL and SL Parlee tubing

Stay tuned.. building in process.

I was tired of the Z series 6-7 years ago ... just about every WW member seemed to have one :lol:
But I always find them classy and beautiful. A lot more than the "modern" Parlees.

I know what you mean.. I cant quite stomach the Altum or Chewbacco however this is not going to be a true WW build.. More of a budget parlee build (after the frame anyways) :noidea:
This will be my first stab at disc with a slight bias to gravel / fireroad type of riding... I hope to keep it in the 17-18lb range.
Enve G23 would be so nice... but I must resist.

I know what you mean but I bought a Z5SL and simply cant get bored of it. It's amazing and everything else I try just isn't as exciting. I've tried an Altum and it just doesn't have the same life in it.

Parlee FD Clamp and seatpost clamp
little lazy since I have post and angle perfect from the other bike.. I dont want to start all over.
Padded Berk Lupina 98g
Darimo 3K 31.6 /250mm Seatpost was 76g
Which leaves the other 50g being the Shimano battery and foam keeping it in there.

hydro lines and Di2 all ran through the frame already ... gonna be work to run everything and drill the Easton EC70 AX bars when they come in for the bar charger.

I think the only way the saddle will be the same angle as your previous bike is if it has the exact same seattube angle. This may not be the case

ordered one of these.. should be roughly half the weight of the Parlee seat clamp. I will probably get their thur-axles at somepoint as well.
