James chose the candy blue finish for his Parlee Z Zero. It's
always a popular choice as it looks so amazing and unusual. It's
still fairly understated too, it only really hits you when you take
a close look in strong light: That's when you get to see the depth
of colour and the frame construction visible below. In this
instance, James chose the unidirectional construction rather than
the 3k weave.
James didn't stop there though. Having the inside edge of the
forks and rear triangle painted can look really good. With some
inspiration from Pollock, James wanted the edges paint splattered
in a monochromatic palette. This really enhances the one off nature
of the bike and adds a further intriguing element without
overpowering the beauty of the frame.
With SRAM Red eTap wireless, Chris King hubs, ENVE rims and
Parlee carbon finishing kit, this is a stunning build. It's amazing
how clean eTap looks with rim brakes.
