Nick's Parlee Z-Zero is very stealthy. If you don't look closely
you might miss all the bling....
The Z-Zero custom is the pinnacle of hand built carbon frames.
100% hand built with in-house made carbon in Beverly, Massachusetts
by Parlee's craftsmen, the Z-Zero delivers ultimate comfort. The
wax finish really lets the carbon shine.
Nick also went for the full Parlee cockpit, taking advantage of
the additional stiffness from the 35mm bar diameter.
Lightweight Meilenstein wheels are another superlative. It's
hard to think of a more perfect wheelset. Just to push the build
into legendary status, Nick chose EE brakes. Forged aluminium,
powerful, and just 194g for the pair, including pads. Probably the
worlds best brakes.
"The key to the Eebrakes' stunning no-compromise performance
is the clever CNC-machined aluminum design, which uses a
progressively increasing-leverage geometry that retains generous
pad clearances but quickly brings them to the rim then piles on the
power from there in a veritable avalanche of braking force." -
Being somewhat obssessed with upgrades, Nick also went for
Ceramic Speed 3D printed ti hollow body pulley wheels. Reduced
friction, improved power transfer, but it comes at a price...
Nick's Parlee is just stunning.
