The Z5i frameset http://www.parleecycles.com/z5i-geometry, is priced at $4000 and is designed to accommodate both traditional shifting and electronic components. Included in the package is the complete build and pro fit by Roy Cervantes of Grace Bicycles. Selecting the appropriate frame size is part of the package. The personal, professional fit by Roy alone is a $550 value. And the value of the gruppo and the rest of the components? Well, you can see that this is a very high end ride!
"So, how do I get this incredible bike?" Team Kermit is holding a drawing to raise money for the PMC. The drawing will take place after PMC Weekend, Monday, August 5.
Here's what you do:
-Tickets are $25 ea. Purchase as many tickets as you like! There is a very modest reserve to cover some of the bike costs. Though I fully expect the reserve to be met, if it is not, all funds will be promptly returned to the participants.
-To purchase tickets send a check make out to Branfman/Team Kermit to my address; 43 Chinian Path, Newton, MA 02459. Include your full contact information.
-Ticket purchases will be accepted until August 5, 6PM Eastern time.
-The drawing will be held that evening and the winner announced to the public via email the next day. The winner will be contacted by email and phone.
-The process of frame size selection, custom fit, bicycle build, and final delivery will then be arranged. There are also options for upgrades in componentry which would be the responsibility of the winner.
