I bought this frame and fork last year and built it up with parts I had.
I had neck surgery February of this year and the head tube is too short for me.
I rode it twice and just cannot get comfortable with my neck.
If you are reading this then you know how amazing this frame is.
There are two small blemishes on the driveside chainstay and the rest of the frame is in fantastic condition.
I hate to see it go, but I need something like a Trek Cronus with a much taller headtube. Or a Parlee Z5 with a tall headtube.
This bike is being sold as. No returns.
I am out of town from Monday April 9 until Saturday April 14. I will have it packed in the original box and ready to ship.
If you use "Buy it now" I will ask my wife to ship it.
Auction is for Frame, Fork, Headset, Seatpost clamp, carbon front derailleur mount.

Bob Parlee is excited to announce the newest member of the family; the Z4. Based on the geometry and fiber layup of the Race Bike of the Year-winning Z3, the Z4 fuses the latest in advanced modular molding technologies with the ride quality and build quality that all PARLEE frames are known for. The sub 1000g Z4 is built by hand with the same uni-directional carbon that goes into our Z1, Z2 and Z3. The Z4 is sold as a framesset with the headset and fork included.
PARLEE Cycles builds the finest carbon fiber bikes in the world. No hype, no gimmicks: simply beautiful bikes that ride extraordinarily well. Combining an engineer's technical know-how, a master craftsman's attention to detail, and an artist's eye for design, "carbon fiber wizard" Bob Parlee optimizes the potential of the material to create a light, responsive frame. Bob designs every feature of a PARLEE frame for function and elegance. The result: a high- performance work of art.
Three elements make PARLEE Cycles the world's finest carbon fiber racing frames: proprietary lug design, optimization of the carbon fiber lay-up in the tube design, and quality workmanship.
PROPRIETARY LUG DESIGN: Each lug is laid up by hand in a direct carbon-to-carbon bond virtually eliminating voids, locating seams for optimal strength and paring excess weight
OPTIMAL FIBER LAY-UP: PARLEE's innovative tube design employs a specific carbon fiber lay-up to optimize stiffness and power transfer while maintaining a superb ride quality.
ATTENTION TO DETAIL: From brake bridge to cable stop to water bottle boss, every detail of a PARLEE is designed and crafted for performance and appearance.
The Z4 has a 7 degree sloping top tube, providing a smaller, lighter frame with amazing stiffness and the refined road feel of all Parlee frames. The Z4 frameset includes carbon fork, carbon front derailleur clamp, and Cane Creek headset.
