Robert was looking for a bike to take on Le Jog and explore, regardless of terrain. The Parlee Chebacco was designed for when the road runs out, letting you extend your rides and find out what's around the next bend.
Robert's build is an interesting one as it's 1 x 11, foregoing the front mech entirely and using an MTB rear mech and an 11-40 cassette. This gives a huge gear range, cuts weight and simplifies the bike. The XTR mech is Di2 and we've set up the Ultegra shifters so that one side shifts up, one side shifts down. XTR Di2 also has a nifty display on the bars that lets you see what gear you're in and can also display othe info depending on how you configure it.
With ENVE finishing kit and Mavic Ksyrium Pro Disc All Road wheelset, this bike will be good for all kinds of adventures.
