Z2: TRADITIONAL LOOKS, MODERN RIDE
Built using the same tube sets and techniques as the Z1, but at a graduated cost scale, the semi-custom Parlee Z2 offers a wide range of sizes and options for the rider seeking level- or gently-sloping top tube of up to two degrees — and a world class, high performance bike.

Utilizing more than a decade’s worth of customer data, which has yielded invaluable information about tube length relationships, the Z2 is offered in five Flex Fit semi-custom sizes. Riders can also choose tube set type, ranging from super light SL, to robust XL, to compliant CL, to the visually stunning X-woven finish.

This array of choices yields precise rider-weight tuning, meaning that your Parlee Z2 will be a truly unique bike, built to your exact specifications, needs and desires. Internal Di2 or Campagnolo EPS V2 wiring is also available.

Z3: COMPACT CARBON PERFECTION
Honored as Race Bike of the Year by Cycling Weekly Magazine in 2006, the Parlee Z3 shares the same semi-custom architecture and pricing scale as the Z2, but in a sloping geometry format. Never before has a frame of this caliber been available with so many customization and ride tune options.

The Parlee Z3 comes in seven Flex Fit semi-custom sizes, or you may choose full custom geometry in sizes up to 70cm. Combine that XL top tube length with Parlee’s XL strength tube set, and even XL sized riders can find a bike that delivers exceptional ride quality with unmatched comfort and control.

Riders can also choose tube set type, ranging from super light SL, to extra-strong XL, to compliant CL, to the visually appealing of X-woven finish. Specific rider-weight tuning is also available, meaning that just like the Z2, your Parlee Z3 is a truly one-of-a-kind bike, fashioned to your individual specifications and needs. Internal Shimano Di2 and Campagnolo EPS V2 wiring is also available.

Custom: a generous selection of modifications


Not all riders require full custom geometry. The Parlee line includes a wide array of stock geometry sizes. Then, with their Flex Fit option, you can extend the head tube height up to 2.5cm for a more upright handlebar position.

The Ride You Want
Stiffness here, compliance there; Parlee's carbon tubes feature unique characteristics that come together to create your desired ride. You can even mix and match tubes to tailor your Parlee to your riding style. Love hills? Go with SL tubing and build a sub-1,000 gram frame. Do you love exploring bumpy back roads for 4+ hours? Try the CL tube set for more comfort. Again, Parlee can do whatever you want, and all tube set options are included in the custom price.

Parlee custom tube sets make all the difference!

Frame Details
Parlee bicycles can be customized with an array of options including an integrated seatpost (ISP), cable stops, bottle mounts, internal electric drivetrain wiring and more.

Paint and Decals:

Why hide a beautiful carbon frame? Famous for emphasizing the beauty of their carbon frames, Parlee's Z1, Z2, Z3, Cross and Track models include your choice of decal colors and style over a nude (bare carbon) or glossy clear coat finish. Etched logos are available for a subtle look that will surely stand out from the other bikes in the peloton. Parlee's Z4, Z5 and TT models have a standard finish that may be partially modified.

The Build Kit
Once the frame is built, it's time to add the fork, components, wheels and finishing touches. Choose one of our stock build kits or customize any component to suit your needs. Taking into account your riding style and aesthetics, we'll help you come up with a unique build that perfectly complements the frame.

The full custom program includes everything that the custom program offers plus:


A Full Custom Fit

Expert craftsmen will work on your Parlee!Whatever you need or want, they can do. Parlee can alter frame geometry by as little as 0.1 degree of angularly and one millimeter linearly. Full custom geometry is available on their Z1, Z2, Z3, CX, Track, TT and Tour platforms. And all full custom designs are created using Parlee's proprietary computer-aided-design system, which matches all rider contact points to the actual frame geometry to ensure a fantastic finished product.
