Parlee RZ7 LE Build Thread


Recommended Posts

And it was such a mission to find it the first time I went there, I dont like that new shop

going into the business park and parking in front of the shop reminded me of the original CL when it was in Paulshof.

 

But yes, the new shop is not nice at all. And why do I have to ask at workshop for brake pads and discs, why cant they just have them on a shelf ?

so this bike is up for sale.

it served it purpose of evaluating Parlee as a bike and deciding on if its good enough.

as it stands its brilliant, so much so i have an order for a couple custom painted RZ7 bikes that should be here in the next few months.

size 52 and 54.

i also have a jet black Parlee Chebacco gravel bike coming in so stay tuned for more build threads

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!
