Bespoke x Parlee
Bespoke and Parlee go back a very long way...

These complementary approaches dovetail nicely, and the end
result is that we've long been champions of Parlee - and they

This Z-Zero Disc is a perfect example. When a regular customer
wanted a "Bespoke" bespoke bike (and how flattering is that!)

but light" theme. Assembled by hand in Germany, these disc-specific
hoops weigh in at under 1450g in clincher form, with each carbon
spoke individually bonded in via the distinctive dovetail
