2014 CyclePassion Calendar

Many of you probably have noticed that the 2014 Cyclepassion calendar has been delayed in its release.  We’ve heard that the producer of the calendar had been involved in a scooter accident near her home and had to postpone all the photo shoots.  Not to worry though, the 2014 calendar has been printed and is … Read More

ENVE 8.9 Clinchers on Tune Hubs

  These rims aren’t new but with their limited availability not many of them have been seen so I thought I’d share these.  They’re the 8.9 rims laced up into our Tune Mig/Mag hubs using Sapim’s CX Ray spokes.  I’ve always been a fan of deep wheels, being 180 lbs and 6’2″ I had to … Read More

Parlee's New ESX Aero Road Bike

Parlee’s new aero ESX frameset

The new Parlee ESX frame is out and more specs, including aero data, will be available in the next couple days.  For now I know that the weight will be mid 800 to mid 900 depending on sizing.  Obviously it’s going to be a bit more than the Z5 but surprisingly not as much as … Read More

Aero English Road

This build is bound to ruffle a few feathers, especially the deep section rims on a thin-tubed steel road frame. Rob English has applied his unique vision of what an aero road bike should be.

Pair of Parlee Z5SLi Frames Built Up

Parlee Pair

The foundation for this build is a pair of Parlee Z5SLi’s, sturdy and stiff but still a comfortable frameset. There are a few small differences in the build list to better fit each rider, tubulars here and clinchers there. Two high performance machines, hidden under a tasteful matte black color scheme. Both bikes are built … Read More

Rootbeer Crumpton

“Rootbeer” Clear Crumpton Road

The unorthodox finish on this Crumpton really is something you have to see for yourself. There’s a depth to the paint that you can only see in direct sunlight, the photographs really don’t do it justice. Contrasting colors and finishes don’t usually work together as well as they do here, matte carbon and leather combined … Read More

Parlee Z0, Lightweight Meilenstein Obermayer

Campagnolo EPS Parlee Z0

I don’t entirely know what to say about this bike that the photos don’t already.  The build just came together nicely, and with the parts list it’s impossible to imagine that it wouldn’t.  The Parlee Z0 is the modern road frame with the right classic look to match a Record EPS groupo perfectly.  The Lightweight Meilenstein … Read More
