    Here is the latest version of my stock 59cm Z3, which I posted when I began this Parlee thread back in 2008 - it currently sports debadged Reynolds MV46 wheels, which to my eye perfectly complement the Parlee's naturally understated look.

    My Parlee Z5SL before swapping out the group to SRAM Red Black. This thing is an absolute pleasure to ride.

    Looks like they've been cranking out a few z-zeros from their facebook page. Surprised one hasn't shown up here. Every time I ride my Z5 SL, I think I should ride it more. I'd love a custom one day, but the Z5 is such a good bike it's hard to take the plunge. Is yours a Z1?

    That bike looks sweet with those C50s Grant.

    Just posted a test ride report of the Z5.
    Really enjoyed riding this bike and looking forward to visiting them soon.

    i see more and more Z5's mostly in the murdered out black lately. everyone of them has 3+cm of spacers and most have a whacky saddle position. seems to be the "new" cervelo in this area.

    Excluding the Z5, how many frames is Parlee putting out per year ? Just curious.

    No custom head tube lengths on the Z5.

    There's a standard head tube and a tall head tube which adds 2.5 cm. 3+cm of spacers on top of that would be a whole lot of extension above the top tube.

    Sure. Is that what he's seeing - spacers on tall head tube bikes? Not a big believer in the "fire bad, spacers bad" fit mantra. Can't see how what someone does to theirs diminishes the brand either.

    Seeking a Parlee 40 rake - 43 rake fork. Down for the old school EDGE medallion, the ENVE, the Parlee branded, prefer gloss over matte (in this case to match 3K UD gloss frame). Need 9.5" steerer tube. QBP has a handful of 1.0's, but I'd like a 2.0 Road. Holler!

    Fancy new cockpit to go with the new wheels. We'll see how long it lasts before I go back to my usual black tape. I'm looking forward to riding this bike a bunch more than I had been.

    Thanks!

    Completely agree, just haven't gotten around to it yet! I put a yaw front mech on the zank. The rest of the group is 2010 red. The front shifting is perfect even with the older rings and shifters.

    Can anyone analogyze Parlee with something outside of the bike industry?
    Their whole schtick is so refined and pure.
    Simple, high quality, timeless.
    What else checks those boxes the way Parlee does?

    I really want one of these.
