This is my new frame, i decided i wanted something having ridden my Madone 5.2 for a while now and these were such a bargin i just couldent resist. I know a lot of people are unsure about the quality if these bikes so i have taken the liberty of doing a write up of my expierience to share with you on my blog:
http://rapidperformancecoaching.blogspot.com

Overall i love it and i hope to have some great times riding it, im just waiting on my new zipp stem to go with the seatpost and bars which are awsome, its the new service course stuff and i can highly recommend it.

Will get a confirmed weight when i get it all complete but its in the 16 pound range at the mo.

I really like the simple and understated paint on the parlee.

Are the people that run the 'paketa' bike company russian?

dude, that is a sweet ride. i think those "entry level" Giants are completely under rated.
i love my alum bike, but that's because there wasn't a Giant dealer nearby.

My 2011 Slice 54 in its current race trim. It has Speedplay pedals, I just have the platform adaptors on them in this photo. Studying for the bar exam is expensive (as if law school isn't expensive enough) so no "race wheels" yet although I do have two sets of Shimano R500 wheels, one that I use for racing (and keep clean with race tires on) and one that I use for training (and beat up and use crappy tires on). So I guess you could call these my race wheels. I am 5'11" but have the legs of someone who is 6'2" and the torso of someone who is 5'7" so finding a bike that fit was difficult. It was between the Slice, the Trek SC 7, and the Blue Triad. I couldn't get on a Blue to try it out and I found the Trek to be a really harsh ride. Once I got on the Slice, it was night and day. I love this frame and the 54cm size fits me like a glove. I am looking to pick up a Hed Jet 6/9 wheelset and then I will begin swapping out components and turn this into a SRAM Force bike. FYI, for those looking for a saddle bag that fits around aero seat posts, the XLab Tire Bag fits the bill quite nicely. Another suggestion for those that use aero bottles: lose the rigid straw and get a camelback tube with a bite valve... best thing I ever did. I can keep my eyes on the road and I'm no longer afraid of puncturing my neck if I go over a pothole.



This is my road bike. It's a hand-built frame made by me... I finally got it right on the fourth try and a lot of wasted tubing (even the slightest mis-alignment in the dropouts and the bike doesn't track correctly). The fork is a cheap steel fork I took off a Schwinn and powder coated white and the components are a mix of Sram, Shimano, and Nashbar - which are basically rebranded Microshift components. It's heavy (25lbs) but has served me well and I was using this as my triathlon bike until a few weeks ago when I got the Slice. Now it will be my group ride / foul weather / crit bike. 50 miles or more on this bike though and you won't walk for a day... next time I build a bike frame, I won't use such large diameter tubing on the seat stays.

I wish it came with two bottle mounts on the frame . I use maltodextrin for IM and carry two bottles per 56m plus aero bottle for water. Not sure how else to do it. I'm not a fan of the torpedo mount for the front bottle

Thanks. She's pretty slick. At first I wasn't happy about the bosses on the Seat Tube - there are none on the Down Tube. Since I only race short course I just rigged something up front & now things are gravy :)

Canyon, what may I ask is on your bar ends? Is that some sort of tape set up, or does the carbon color scheme just have black and white? Nice bike...

This is what I have. http://www.trisports.com/miniwing.html I think it looks more horizontal because of the way I had to put it on my seat rails. I couldn't fit the bag in between without it being too annoying so I just keep my flat kit in a bottle in the rear.

Nice, thanks. That's the one I was looking at getting. You just sold me on it. I currently have one if the profile design units but its just to far back to reach the bottles when I'm aero.
