Very nice, definitely old skool. A bit surprising it's not lighter.

Agree with you. Is there anything heavy on the bike?

I'm really happy with the build, I've been after a Parlee for a long time.

Did you have a frame weight? Fork weight? Is that custom geo?

That's the weight I was familiar with. A close riding buddy was a Parlee dealer and that's pretty much what his Z Zero weighed. It makes your finished weight that much more impressive.

The Z Zero IMO is the pinnacle of custom carbon. Argonaut, Sarto, there are some others, but I think the Z Zero with choice of tubeset, tube combinations, is the leader. And a long track record of getting the ride quality dialed. I nearly purchased the same bike, but being so weight obsessed at the time, I ended up buying an Altum.
