    I've come to the dark side - my first non-metal bike. Frame from VSalon classifieds courtesy of Todd Holland - Z5 demo; standard paint scheme circa 2011 or so. Just moved over a first gen Record 11 group from a crappy ti bike I was never happy with. Two rides so far, liking it a lot, rides almost like a couple of my steel bikes. I've been on carbon before (mainly mass-manufacturer) and was non-plussed, but this gives a little more road feedback. I'm not a weight weenie, but it comes in a hair under 15 lbs with all sensible components, computer, etc. So far very happy.

    Looks great. My SL is from the same model year and I still really enjoy it. They're also really easy to build into light bikes without trying hard at all.

    Still liking the Z5, Lou? Your build looks great.

    Thanks. Yep, still digging it. A couple of clicks and creaks, but I need to change the crank bearings, service the pedals, etc. when I get a rainy day at home. The build is a 5 year old Record 11 group, an Aspide, and a new Fizik post and shallow drop "Bull" bar. Waiting on a matching stem; trustworthy Thomson in there for now. The Fizik stuff is new to me and so far impressed with fit, function, and aesthetics. I know Zipp doesn't get a lot of love here on the Salon, but these 404 tubulars have been my daily drivers for 2 years with no problems so far.

    Someone earlier in this thread asked about Z-Zeros. Here's my humble contribution:

    Matching stem with an ISP is great.

    @AntLockyer -- thanks. This bike has been absolutely fantastic. I owned a Parlee Z3 before this (R.I.P.), and when the opportunity "presented itself" to do a custom geometry for the Z-Zero, I didn't go much to change it up from the standard M/L Tall, but I did change the trail / HT angle slightly, raised the point at which the top-tube hits the headtube (I never did like the 2 cm of "extra" headtube sticking up above the top tube) and did the ISP.

    The ISP is great, so long as I *never* change my saddle. ;-)

    Funny thing about the geo on the Z-Zero is that it basically matches my CAAD9 now, which is the best-handling bike I've ever ridden.

    Cables look awful (I know it is the frame and SRAM- not your build), otherwise it looks great.
    Size?
    Saddle height?
    Looks close what I would ride-

    Does Parlee make the fork for that bike? It looks evil in a good way, in my opinion.

    Parlee does make the fork, it is only available on the ESX and is for direct mount brakes.
