A very sweet and competent build, as always from FWB!
How do you feel the ride differs from the Storck?

That's perdy. And yes, how do you compare the ride to the Storck?
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

got her out on a 30 mile ride today, felt plenty stiff although not as harsh as the storck.there was a gradual climb, about 4 miles in length with a max grade of 8%, felt no noticable flex both in and out of the saddle. the decent is where i think the storck had the edgewhile the parlee felt good it didn't feel quite as rock solid as the storck. in all i am very happy with the performance of the parlee
