Parlee were pioneers of the gravel/adventure bike with the
Chebacco. As always they started by building a bike for the kind of
riding they like to do themselves, in this case exploring the
tracks and byways of their local stomping grounds.
With tyre clearance up to 40mm and disc brakes the Chebacco
isn't simply a relabelled cyclocross bike - Parlee have designed it
from the ground up to perform well on road as well as off. The
bottom bracket is a little lower than on a typical cross bike, the
geometry more relaxed, and the end result is a bike that shares the
stable, precise handling that's found across the Parlee range.
In Parlee's own words: "Gravel grinding, cyclocross racing,
tackling a commute in the urban jungle. Now, for the first time,
you can do all those things on one bike that delivers remarkable
versatility plus the signature Parlee ride quality."
