Regarding my Parlee Z4.
It came with the old style EDGE fork - in non-uni directional weave. So I am looking for a EDGE 2.0 or (preferably) a 1.0!

What dimensions should the fork be to fit Parlee z4? Is it tappered or 1½?1 1/8? or what? and what does "Rake" mean? and what rake should I choose?

Besides..
I bought a THM Clavicula crankset with stronglight C2 chainrings today. It is matte black (which I have never seen before) and I think it would fit the Parlee very well.

Yesterday I got a set of Tune carbon chain rings - I didnt know Tune had ever made those (?) anyway - they will look bling on photos, but I will use the C2 rings for riding around :)

I dont know about wheels for the Parlee yet. I have the opportunity to choose between slightly used Lightweight Gen 3 or new EDGE 45 clinchers with DT190 (ceramic). Which should I choose?

Those Edge 45's with the 190's sound sweet.
Don't let the truth get in the way of a good story......

Yea, ceramic bearings and very light weight. also they can be rebuild and spokes replaced and they are clincher so I dont have to be nervous when riding the wheels (like I am when riding my Racing Speeds)... But lightweight gen3 is just /drool...

Think I am going with the Edge though.

Regarding the fork, the Z4 is 1 1/8 non-tapered. The Z5 has a tapered fork. For rake, the Z4 comes with 43mm rake according to their website.

Please post some pictures. I'm keen to see some other Z4s out there.

Hehe. Have patience :D

I will make a topic with pictures of the project in progress. At the moment I do have other (though less important) things to do like work and my examns. Since I am studying a masters degree in engineering I think it might be wise to spend just a little time off the bike :wink:

I think you've got a really nice red, white, black balance going on there!
Vast improvement from when you first got the bike!
Great innovation with component choice!

Just interested, is that a KMC x10sl chain your running with SR?
How's the shifting and noise with that?

Also very interested to see the Parlee, are you just swapping all the parts over or is it a completely new build???

Its an 11 spd chain. I beleive its Token or so.

The Parlee is an entirely new build. DI2, Clavicula, Zero Gravity, EDGE wheels etc.

This is a beauty, eigner. Well done.

I would keep the bars. I had the Ram 2s but felt it is a bit too "rounded" - together with the wavy Pinarello frame design, there is a lack of straight geometry overall.

On wheels, I assume you are talking about LW Gen3 standards (non-ceramic)? If this is the case, go for the Edge-DT190 ceramics. I have found that good ceramic wheelsets are really worth the upgrade. The LW Standards are good but IMHO, cannot match the ride enjoyment of the DT190-based wheels.

Screw the colors and whether or not shit matches - how does the damned thing ride? And how much do you ride it?

The mandatory current "look I've got a weenie bike" stuff. ;)
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.

Very, very nice bike. But there's something about white hoods. They epitomize "cool, but not cool" you'd think they would be great. But somehow, they just don't work. Black is the only way to go.
