Surprise! another "cx gravel" production bike (Parlee)

Looks like the old photos disappeared since I got rid of Flickr.

Here it is in its current set up. 1x Di2 XTR, headed into the snow for a quick overnighter.

Because when you want to put gears one day in the very distant future you're good to go.

yes, they are a far better for single speed use because they dont fold in on you when you try to use em to brake (which is super annoying when a cable isnt routed through the mech levers).

Clean & Classy. Looks like a hoot.

TRP Hylex brakes would be right at home on this rig. I prefer the ergonomics of them over the R785 levers and they are less expensive to boot.

Maybe a dumb question but how do you tension the chain?

Proper gear ratio, and a brand new chain have worked fine for me before and here.

I will end up with one of these down the line.
