As you'd expect from Parlee, they haven't simply jumped on the latest bandwagon - the Chebacco was a pioneer in the field - like so many of their bikes designed to meet their own requirements, in this case for exploring the lanes and byways around their Massachusetts HQ.
Fortunately for us this also makes it perfect for British bridleways and fire roads, as well as the stretches of A- and B-roads in between.
The Chebacco is all about fun, getting off the paved roads and exploring, but it'll also take you long distances on road in comfort. This isn't a relabelled 'cross bike, it has been designed from the ground up with geometry and handling to suit a wide range of surfaces and conditions.
Chebacco is available as an "LE" frameset in a range of colours, with full custom paint options available. We can build it into your dream bike, perfectly fitted, with your choice of components: Parlee Chebacco LE
It's also available as a complete bike, the "Core" model, representing superb value particularly in the Ultegra mechanical and Ultegra Di2 build options: Parlee Chebacco Core

One of the biggest game changers that road riders have seen in the past few years is the emergence of disc brake technologies. The Altum Disc is engineered specifically for disc brake use with some key frame and fork designs that allow for seamless integration. The frame features the same engineering, design and geometry as the other Altum model, but with a modular rear dropout for through-axle 142mm wheels.
Up front, it has a specially built fork designed for the greater braking forces of disc brakes. It features a 12mm thru axle design for added stiffness and steering precision. The frame and fork are fully compatible with mechanical or hydraulic braking systems and various rotor sizes (140-160mm) for added versatility and upgrade options. For adventurous riders who love to tackle unpredictable roads and all kinds of weather, the Altum Disc delivers a new level of performance.
