Saving money doesn’t mean having to sacrifice performance, at least, not with the Z3. Our Endurance Road UHC Performance MMC carbon fiber frame is the heart of this bike; it’s responsive under power and yet designed to offer comfort for those long days in the saddle.

They compliment each other perfectly! The Z3 rides super smooth thanks to the 25mm tires and the carbon seat post. The only thing I have done so far is to switch out the cockpit to an all carbon affair. I am very happy with this bike!

Assuming I am dressed such ... Read More »
How much would a used Parlee Z3 w/ all sl tubing except DT(UD tubing) w/ an Edge 1.0 fork go for ? Would anyone have a rough estimate ?
Would 2250 sound good ? Overpriced ? Too low ?

I'm not a big runner but do a few triathlons and biathlons every year and I notice that my running heart rate is darn near my max heart rate whenever I run. If I want to run in a Z2 or Z3 it's pretty much walking.
I usually only get about 12 weeks of training in before the events, and have usua ... Read More »
