Parlee Cycles TT Triathlon Bike

5/5 (1 Reviews)


Product Description

How does one create the fastest bicycle frame in the world? Incredible knowledge of fluid dynamics and aerodynamics. This just so happens to be Bob Parlee's area of expertise; with all of his knowledge amassed while building carbon fiber sail boat hulls. For Parlee, this is the easy part. When Parlee first thought of building a time trial bike, their only thought was ride quality; the the one aspect of the bike that every other manufactuer neglects. The goal was to create a bike with an incredible aero profile, that would ride like their flagship Z1 road bike. I dare say mission accomplished, as this is the finest riding time trial platform in the world. Whether you are looking to blaze your next prologue, 40K or Ironman, you will appreciate the supreme ride quality that Parlee offers.

Bottom Line:   
Tried it out with my REynolds sdv66 clincher front whels and Reynolds Eement Disc wheel. The bike is light and reasonably priced considering its pedigree. The streamlined headtube means reduced drag. As claimed by other reviews, the Parlee's are very smooth and same time stiff. You're like riding on top of silk textile.

I have not ridden long enough to write a substantial review but it is an awesome bike. Parlee however can improve on Stock colors if possible.

Cancellara's time penalty in the TT

I just read about Cancellara being penalized 7 seconds for drafting during the TT the other day, taking him from second to third. What was he drafting? A rider he caught up to? Or a race moto? If a race moto, that's lame, as the moto should be keeping ahead far enough he couldn't draft it. Obviou ... Read More »

Setting up Road Bike positioning to match TT position. Any problems?

I have recently set up my road bike positioning to match my TT position. I lowered my handlebar height by 2cm (7.5cm to 9.5cm below saddle height). I have short arms. I then moved my seat forward from 5.5cm to 3.5cm behind BB. The idea behind it is so I can be much more aerodynamic when attacking, f ... Read More »
