1x

1x with Easton cranks and Compass tires.
Put a double on and some tires with some knobs and it would be 17-

Didn't say I wanted to do it - just said it could be done...

It feels light enough as is - any upgrades that also drop weight will just be gravy.

15 lb.

I also didn't outright say that it couldn't be done.

My point was-
1.) Can't be done with an Ultegra type build. It would take a quite esoteric and expensive build to get near 15 lb.
2.) To have a 15 lb. Chebacco one would sacrifice a lot of the hardcore offroad capability. Durability, gearing, meaty tires, etc..

So, do others' Chebaccos light up like this? Or are yours painted? Mine appears to all be 3M-style reflective decals over a painted base...

Edit: looks like it's an optional graphic package - neat-o.

I have to give some props here to the folks at Parlee..

Not only are they sending me out a mechanical adapter kit for the frameset in short order; but they are also cutting me a new set of vinyl decals for a very reasonable price so I can make this one stealth black - while still being hyper-reflective when lights hit it (like the Parlee and Chebacco decals showing in the pic above). There's nothing wrong with the orange ones, except that the local college football team is orange and black, and I prefer a more subtle look to the bike that isn't associated with them Oregon State Beavers.

Good stuff.

Parlee customer service is second to none. A big reason why I keep going back!

My 2018 paint doesn't light up like that, very cool.

Here's a build list for my Chewie for those discussing weight. It weighs 15.6lbs with GravelKing SKs 35c and 15.0lbs with Hutchinson Sector 32c. Some room to go lower yet as well given the build is all pretty mainstream components, but that's kind of the point for a gravel bike. The Zipp Sprint stem in particular is a pig but it suits the purpose well. The biggest weight savers in my case were the small frame size, 1220g wheelset, Red crank, and Red cassette.

Interesting, I guess they went with decals in the latest iterations. My 2016 is the Alaska RR Blue and painted accents (gorgeous) . Does not glow!

Yes, they are the standard for customer service.

That said, I would love to have a fork with a longer steerer tube, if any of you are using aftermarket forks, ie Lauf, etc., or just want a slammed profile, we could trade. And Bill, that is damned light!

I believe the Parlee frames that come from their overseas factory over the last few years have the logos and graphic details done as decals that are cleared over and not full paint.

I guess it was a custom request the original owner did. It's available on the "4S" model, which is more road/commuter oriented..

Just want to be clear this is a custom option - just so folks know if stumbling on this thread from the interwebs...

From their site, it looks like the sky is the limit for finishes.

Great bike, and congrats. I have the blue Chebacco so it's not reflective like yours.

I weighed mine last night after all this talk, and it is at 17.1 lbs (1x XTR Di2, alloy bars/stem, piggish Ibis carbon 29 wheels, 40c tires, etc.) - not a light build by any means but surprisingly light for how durable the bike feels, and still climbs like a road bike (snappy and fast).

Enjoy it!

Very cool. How wide are those rims, and how is your clearance with the 40s? I'm thinking about multiple wheelsets and tire setups for this one...

They are 28mm outside, 22mm inside (1580 grams) ... decent clearance with 40c Nano's. I think I could fit 42's (tight fit) but it's dry here so I wouldn't worry about mud.
