Z5 – a study in simplicity.


The aim in this build was to deliver a performance bike for the hills that stands out through its understated looks. Customising the bike’s looks through decal options, the owner chose to link Parlee’s classic logo and new font through the use of a single “dove Grey” tone.

The theme was carried through with black, silver and white components including Campag Record Compact, 3T alloy bars and stem,  Record seatpost, Fizik Aliante saddle, RavX cages, EDGE Composites 45 Clinchers and Parts of Passion Ti coloured skewers.

A nice balanced build with an all up weight, with pedals, of 6.8kg.
