The one type of bicycle missing from my arsenal is a gravel grinder/adventure bike. I’ve spent months researching bikes, talking to owners of these bikes… only to be even more confused about my decisions. Those days of being dazed and confused are over because the Parlee Chebacco is right up my alley!
It’s inspired by a place where history runs deep. North of Boston, in the county now known as Essex, Chebacco Parish was one of the earliest European settlements in the mid-1600s. Today, centuries-old roads, paths and trails make it a perfect place for adventurous rides—if you have the right bike.
Meet the Chebacco. It’s named after our local stomping grounds, but it’s at home wherever roads can get rough and rides turn into adventures. Gravel grinding, cyclocross racing, 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 plus the signature Parlee ride quality.
Rather than follow the traditional blueprint for a cyclocross bike, we set out to create a premium ride experience with nearly unlimited capabilities. With disc brakes, wide tire clearance (up to 40mm) and hidden fender mounts front and rear, this 100 percent carbon fiber frame that lets you expand your riding possibilities—while giving up nothing in terms of lightweight performance and ride quality.
A few key points that make the Parlee Chebacco a beast is that you can customize the paint and request your preferred BB style… like THREADED!
