First a disclaimer.

i am the dealer for Parlee Cycles in Southern Africa. 

 

This bike is my own personal bike. hence why i am keeping this on my personal profile.

 

Parlee along with all other bike brands world wide are suffering with a shortage of groupsets.

I brought this bike in as a rolling chassis.

 

The Rolling Chassis kit includes all below all brand new:

 

  • 2021 Parlee RZ7 LE frameset
  • Enve Foundation 45 wheelset - tubeless tape and valves included
  • Parlee integrated carbon bars
  • Parlee integrated stem
  • Parlee integrated Garmin out front mount
  • 2x Parlee carbon bottle cages
  • Parlee carbon seatpost
  • 150mm Fizik Argo R5 Saddle
  • 2x Tubeless ready 28mm Vittoria Corsa Graphine 2.0 Tires
  • Parlee through axles
  • Cane Creek Headset bearings
  • Tubes (i will not be using these as i plan on riding this bike tubeless)
  • Arundel bar tape

So the only thing missing was a groupset and bottom bracket.

 

Thankfully i was able to source an almost new Force Etap AXS groupset with around 1000km of use.

This included a Force Quark power crank which is a nice extra to have!

 

I was also able to source a DUB BB for the frame today.

 

So now i have the fun assembly ahead of me!
