Parlees are masterful carbon frames made in Peabody, Massachusetts by Bob Parlee and his team of craftsmen. Bob refined his knowledge of and skill in working with carbon by building no holds barred carbon racing hulls and keels. A true carbon visionary, Bob was building carbon bikes when paper thin aluminum and small diameter titanium were the craze. Local boy Tyler Hamilton raced aboard a Parlee Z1 for some time (including a second place in the Giro) and legendary team director Bjarne Riis made a huge push to have his original CSC squad aboard Parlee custom frames. Fortunately for all of us Bob was smart enough to realize that he couldn’t supply a massive squad like CSC and still have time to make frames for the rest of us. We’ve found Parlee to be the perfect bike for riders that are looking for a completely custom carbon frame. From their blazing fast TT bike to their feathery Z1, Z2 and Z3 road models, Parlee frames are available with custom geometry, and, thanks to Parlee’s mastery with carbon lay-up, custom ride quality too. No other company that we know of can match Parlee when it comes to customization and quality. Again, give us a ring if you’d like to put together your dream Parlee carbon bike.

  • Parlee Z2 / Z3

    The Z3 is Parlee's vision of the perfect sloping geometry frame. Recognized as Race Bike of the Year by Cycling Weekly Magazine, the Z3 has become the favorite of racers and enthusiastic riders worldwide.
  • Parlee Z5

    Parlee's fifth generation frameset — the Z5 — is one of the lightest frames ever built, yet still possesses the famous acceleration, lively road feel, and comfort that is the hallmark of all Parlee designs.
