Best builds of 2014, part 1: Parlee Z5 Sli.

So we've been trying pretty hard to come up with our 12 favourite builds of 2014... It's tough!

2014 saw the opening of our second store, 59 Jermyn Street, so that's two locations building up some amazing custome bikes for some incredible customers. These are our first two picks:

Parlee Z5 Sli

Understated but with bright yellow highlights, this Z5 Sli went out with Fizik finishing kit, Ultegra electronic groupset and Ksyrium 125s, celebrating 125 years in the business for Mavic.

We like the use of just black and yellow. Quality of components and a clean aesthetic also appeal. See more here, shot by Bobby Whittaker.
