The Pearl Parser June 10 2016

When given the opportunity to build my own custom Pearl White Parser I choose the parts below. I envisioned a bike that would be ideal for off road adventures and ready for some light cargo if I was to install a front rack and/or a rear Adjust-A-Rack. I’ve taken this bike out for weekend rides around Bonelli Park in La Verne, CA and also to Griffith Park in Los Angeles. The Parser feels solid and responsive carving around the bends and the dirt/gravel that you can come across near the Hollywood sign. The 700×35 Ritchey Shield Cross tires are just wide enough for my comfort and they can handle sharp turns with ease. My favorite feeling was the downhill coast through the fire trails over to the backside of Griffith Park. This complete bike weighs 20 lbs which allowed me to catch some air when rolling through the dips in the woods. The Phil Wood hubs, DT Swiss spokes and H Plus Son rims complement each other well, allowing for a complete wheel set that is very sturdy and durable. I wanted this Parser to be reliable and enjoyable for riding trails here in California. The gear ratio I choose was a 48 tooth front chain-ring and 18 tooth rear freewheel. The goal with this build was to have an easy/fun/comfortable ride, and that has definitely been achieved. The build was finished off with proven and dependable components from Ritchey and SRAM. In general, The Parser is a single-speed warrior that’s very tough. I would totally race CX on this bad ass machine. I hope you like what you see! It was a blast customizing and building my own Pearl White Parser. – Diego Souza The list of parts: Fairdale Pearl White Parser Fairdale White Bar Tape Fairdale Seat Clamp Fairdale Headset “Every Pedal Moves You Closer” Fairdale Water Bottle Cage Fairdale Little Big Mouth Bottle Fairdale Brake Housing / Cable Phil Wood Hubs Silver Track / Freewheel 32 Holes Shimano 18t Freewheel Turbo Saddle KMC Single Speed Raw Chain H Plus Son TB14 Rims 32 Holes DT Swiss Spokes Ritchey WCS Seat Post Ritchey Shield Cross Tires 700x35c Ritchey WCS Trail Mountain Stem 80 degrees Ritchey Streem II Road Bar 40cm Width / 78mm Reach / 128mm Drop SRAM S300 48t GXP Crankset SRAM GXP Bottom Bracket Shorty Ultimate is Avid’s premium cantilever brake.
