    Thanks! For the most part I prefer the aesthetics of "classic" shaped bars, but I'm finding for myself the ergo type bars are just a little to comfortable to pass up.

    Possibly on the seat height, haven't ridden this on much yet. I do tend to like frames a little on the large side for some reason.

    It's clean and sharp, but not hot. It's very bland and boring.

    I think "bland" and "boring" is what makes it hot. You see it and you think, "meh, cheap gray bike" and then you look at it closer and realize its a damn nice bike.

    I think the Parlee is hot. I like the graphite/black combo. I'd have no reservations owning/riding it. It reminds a little of the Colnago C59 Nero I like so much.

    I think that Parlee is probably one of those bikes that photos don't do any justice.

    I dislike how much the head tube goes beyond the top tube, but its still a hot bike IMO

    Some of us older guys need the extended head tube option for all day riding, but I agree that it distracts a little from the classic look..

    From a looks perspective I obviously prefer subtle and muted paint schemes, but gray and black bikes are hard to get pics of with my amateur level of photography skills.

    Yeah, I have wanted to slam my stem for a long time but have recently come to grips that it isn't for everyone. As much as it pains me to say, I would rather chose comfort than vanity in this situation. love your bike

    It's strange to me the Parlee does the longer head tube like that. Seems like they could just bring the top tube up a bit and reduce the amount above.

    I have plenty of opinions in life, but not enough to offer Bob Parlee bike design advice. It is pretty frigging comfortable, though.

    Your opinion matters most. He would not have much to do if you and others did not buy his stuff.

    Not really. Stack height does look extreme. Lights shold have been removed for photo. Bike set a bad stage/angle. I suggest to try again for this thread.
