Lowdown: Parlee Z-Zero Road Bike
Thanks to Matt at Red Lantern Cycles in Menlo Park, California, RoadBikeReview was given the chance to test ride another super bike, this time the Parlee Z-Zero. The Parlee Z-Zero is the top-of-the-line offering from Parlee, a boutique bike brand out of Massachusetts.
Like its predecessor, the Z-1, the Z-Zero is one of the few carbon frames made right here in the USA. Indeed, each Z-Zero frame is custom made for each rider. A complete CAD drawing is made in advance detailing frames measurements, and customer can work with Parlee to alter certain measurements to get the exact ride characteristics they're looking for. Because of the customization, limited volume, and time-consuming build process, list price for the frame is $7899. But how does it ride? Read our full review below.
