Support the WBR - Win a Chebacco!

Ready, Set, Bid!

Parlee Chebacco auction to benefit World Bicycle Relief

A 5 day auction, with an opening bid of $3,800 will launch on Sunday, January 24th for a new Parlee Chebacco Bike with 100% proceeds benefitting World Bicycle Relief. Champion System Co-Founders are responsible for the donation of this bike, which retails for $7,155.00.

The auction can be found here:

About the Parlee Chebacco: A handcrafted, 100% carbon fiber frame gives the Chebacco a smooth, stable ride at speed, whether you’re gravel grinding, cyclocross racing, or tackling a commute in the urban jungle. Now, for the first time, you can do all those things on one bike that delivers remarkable versatility. With disc brakes, wide tire clearance (up to 40mm) and hidden fender mounts front and rear, this incredible bicycle lets you expand your riding possibilities—while giving up nothing in terms of lightweight performance and that signature Parlee ride quality. This lightweight frame is paired with a SRAM Force1 Hydro Group, Zipp 30 Course Disc brake wheels and a Zipp Service Course SL cockpit.

Frame Size: Winner will select frame size based on his or her needs.

Shipping: The bicycle will be shipped to the winner's local Parlee dealer for final delivery. A free professional fitting is also included if the winner would like to visit Signature Cycles in Greenwich, CT.

The Buy it now price will be set at $6,909.00:

A win win! This will provide WBR directly with enough funds to supply 47 bicycles to those in need of dependable, sustainable transportation. And provide you with almost $250 off what this high end bicycle usually sells for!


Meet the Maker - London

We are excited to return to London and even more excited to celebrate our 10th year of working with the team at Bespoke Cycling. In the last ten years, they have gone from a small space in Hoxton Square to three flagship retail spaces across London and are now the number one global retailer for Parlee Cycles.

To honor these milestones we are joining their staff for a relaxed evening of drinks and discussion of all things bike related. They have just opened a new flagship store at 30 Gresham Street and we are looking forward to kicking off 2016 in this wonderful new space.

Our founder and lead designer, Bob Parlee, will be on hand to present his story and talk about what is new.

The event is Thursday,  December 10th from 6:30pm onward. The event is open to all but we kindly ask that you RSVP here.
