An Evening with Bob Parlee

Bob Parlee, founder of Parlee Cycles

"I founded Parlee in 2000 with a simple but lofty goal: to build the best bikes in the world.”

- Bob Parlee


Thursday, October 18

Reception begins at 6:00pm
Presentation begins at 7:00pm

Ever since Parlee pioneered the first fully customizable carbon-fiber road racing frames more than 15 years ago, Bob has been pushing the envelope with breakthrough designs. The company never bothers chasing trends. Instead, Parlee pursues real innovations that improve the ride quality and performance.

Beyond well-known achievements in custom geometry, Parlee was also first to create a sub-900 gram carbon fiber road frame. A few years later they broke the 800-gram barrier. Along the way, Parlee's designs have been recognized with major accolades including Bicycling Magazine’s Editors’ Choice, Race Bike of the Year (Cycling Weekly) and Eurobike Design awards.

Parlee Cycles have made their mark by following their own unique path. There is no change for change’s sake, and no interest in superfluous styling. Massive downtubes and box-shaped bottom brackets might make for good sales fodder, but Parlee has chosen to avoid trendy marketing features that only add bulk without improving the ride quality. From ultra-light, super-stiff race bikes to silky smooth endurance, gravel or cyclocross machines, each one is purpose-built for a specific type of ride.
