New to WW...but thought I would show off this beauty I have just built....

Beautiful Parlee, but:
a) reduce number of pictures. Post just 1 or 2 and make a new thread in "Introduce your self" for all pictures and details of your bike.
b) Reduce size of the pictures

Lig: WOW just wow. Nice build and custom paint combo.
I miss the Jerk because your stem is still too short.
Your saddle is probably too high as well.
Oh, and your cleats too far forward.

Cheers Redbeard.

I am very pleased with how its turned out... the image doesnt really show it but there is 'Parlee' on the toptube / rear stays and forks in 'ghost' paint, but this shines through nicely in the sun..

Eigner - I have just put one image on here - when I reduce the size the quality is really naff??

Keep that image the way it is but this bike deserves its own thread. Just sayin.
Looks like some housing is a little long. There, I said something negative in order to appease the contemporary internet forum overseers.

Hi Redbeard...

I will start a thread with all the specs...

I know what you mean about the cable but by having a bit of extra length is just stops the cables rubbing and compression when turning?!?!

I will see how it goes and can always shorten it!!

Awesome bikes. However, I must ask. Do you guys actually ride these bikes? They are either never ridden and hence they are so clean or you guys have a cleaning crew taking care of them right after each ride. I just have never seen bikes so clean and museum quality :lol: :mrgreen: :lol:

Ive been accused of a lot of things but not riding my bike enough isnt one of them.

I took the pictures prior to first ride :wink: It still looks prestine though. I clean and maintain it very well. I figured I might as well take care of it since its valued way above 10.000$ :roll:

Hi Dgasmd,

Ride them? are you crazy :shock: - then they would get dirty!! These are just to look at!!

Heh heh.... yeah - I just built mine and so havent even test ridden it yet - but Yes I do intent to ride it BUT like eigner I will also keep it spotless... even my winter training bike looks like new as I give it a good clean every week (which at the moment with the bad weather is once a week)!! At least we dont have to clean our turbo bikes - :lol:

That white Parlee looks ace!
And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.
