This Chebacco build perfectly sums up Parlee's intentions for
this incredibly versatile bike. Shod with Conti's bombproof GP 4
Seasons on deep section carbon Cosmics it's a rapid winter
trainer/commuter. Swap out for DT Swiss C1800 Spline wheels and
Vittoria Terreno tyres for the perfect gravel/adventure
There's never really one bike that can cover every eventuality,
but the Chebacco comes closer than most. It really sums up the
attraction of "road plus": Bikes that use something close to a
traditional road geometry (as opposed to simply copying cyclocross
bikes) to give a ride that's nimble, comfortable for the long haul,
but with a handy turn of speed.
Parlee's carbon expertise shines through in the ride comfort,
they can always be relied on to deliver a bike that has the
stiffness required for efficient power transfer without
compromising on ride quality.
Reliable Ultegra shifting and thoroughly tried-and-tested Parlee
carbon contact points mean that this bike is ready to take whatever
you throw at it, all year round. We've taken great care to fit the
mudguards to allow for a wide range of wheel and tyre combinations,
so this is one bike that'll be equally at home on long-distance
bridleway expeditions or on winter city commutes.
