My customers often enjoy talking about different bikes: it fun and it’s one of the reasons why I got into the business. There is one brand, though, that is everything you need and nothing you don’t need – PARLEE. Parlee doesn’t have the big sponsorship deals with the pro teams, but the pros love to ride Parlee – Tyler Hamilton in the Giro, that wasn’t a Cervelo it was a Parlee with Cervelo stickers. I have had a lot of costumers evolve and graduate to riding Parlee. Some came from Cervelo and some came from the big 3 bike makers, but all agree their Parlee is a fantastic, comfortable, stiff and race-tuned frame. Lugged Carbon with race-proven geometry – you could easily spend 5k on a frame or you can get a Parlee and be just as fast and just as comfortable.
We recently built a Parlee Z4 with custom paint for a customer, check it out, we think it looks great and it weighs a jaw-droping 14.3 pounds and that is with stock SRAM, Ritchey and Zipp parts (on the check it out link to http://bikesarethenewblack.com/index.php/parlee-z4-medium-with-custom-paint)
You’ll also get the bike built by me and built by hand. As always I will work with you to ensure proper fit.
