That is pretty much the build I am planning, not real sure what it will end up weighing but since I'm not exactly a lightweight I have to be reasonable. At least that is what I keep telling myself.

Only way I was able to was because wrenchscience.com had it on sale for $2,795 (USD), I could never justify the $4,800 retail at this stage of my life. I was actually looking at a Pinarello Paris, Argon 18 Gallium, and a De Rosa Merak Evolution before I saw the price on the Parlee. I'm pretty sure I made the correct choice.
I did receive my bottle cages today.
BB area pic, only one wire showing in there. I placed a small piece of tape to make sure that it doesn't come into contact with the crank spindle.
Stem after a little work.
Last but not least, how it sets now.

one of the best finishes on the Parlee for a long time
Also how did you get rid of the logo's on the 3t stem and finish it of with?
Thank you. I actually saw how to get rid of the logo thanks to another member on his site. It only took a few minutes and a little bit of Acetone and the red stripe and the logos were gone. No damage was done to the black.
CBJ wrote:Nice work on the stem I saw the thread too but why that bar?
Did you remove stickers on the post too?
That is the bar that I had on my previous bike, may swap it out for a traditional bend.
The seat post came that way, bought it specifically for this build.
