Ever-so-slight 1 degree slope. Feel free to add yours to this page!

I found an eBay seller selling a few NOS ones. Picked up a couple and slapped one on my MOOTS and the Z1.

They are like this: https://www.bikemania.biz/pmp-titani...s-headset.html

Cool! I have their Ti Seat posts on several of my bikes. Very high quality stuff, IMO.

I bought this last year even though I have a new Z5 - the price with full DuraAce was too good to pass up. The fit was identical to the Z5.



and here's the Z5



I have owned carbon bikes since the 90s and Parlee are my favorite carbon rides (I also like titanium).

I'm not much of a fan of the aesthetics of the newer Parlee models (Altum, etc). I wouldn't mind getting a Chewbacco but I have enough cross/gravel bikes.

This is from the other side of the size spectrum.

I have always love these lugged round tube carbon frames. Once I find a ML tall I would add it to the stable.

Envy, envy, envy! I've had a Z3 for 10+ years now, and love it, but the search continues for a used Z1 (in 58/59 ST, just in case!) ...

Cot day-um that is a sharp looking bike! I would eat my own sphincter just to ride a bike that good looking

...of course, with that amount of drop I think I would wind up eating my own sphincter...
