DESCRIPTION

Frame and Wheel’s view is that this Parlee Z1 will make and excellent choice for the dedicated road cyclist who appreciates the craftsmanship and performance characteristics of Parlee frame sets, the versatility and precision of Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 electronic shifting and the speed and feel of Zipp 404 Firecrest tubulars. The bicycle shows immaterial signs of wear and is effectively a new bicycle with many hours of serious training and racing remaining in its unidirectional carbon tubes. The waxed satin finish, carbon lugs and zero slope top tube give the bicycle a classic and original voice that is accented very pleasingly with electronic shifting and deep dish tubular wheels. The new owner will be transformed by this bicycle and will no doubt achieve great revelations with it. A rare and excellent opportunity to obtain the best Parlee has to offer.
