Best Builds of 2014 #5: Parlee Z Zero 'Rain' Paint

Contender 5 in our customer builds of 2014: This Parlee Z Zero with custom rain effect paint.

Parlee are acknowledged masters when it comes to building full custom carbon frames in their Massachusetts facility, but their custom paint is equally outstanding. I don't even know how this was done, bit the fad paint job has rainwater effect. Amazing.

Naturally it's not just the paint that's quality. EE brakes, Cannondale's ultralight SiSL cranks, Di2, de-badged ENVE finishing kit, Meilenstein Schwarz edition wheelset, Fizik Kurve saddle. Damn...
