    My new TT bike setup is on it's way!

    I just found out! I'll have the new TT bike frame package I ordered next week! I'm totally excited! I bought the TT frame, Carbon Fiber fork with CF steerer tube, S6 headset, Carbon Fiber top cap and Carbon Fiber seat post. That should be enough fiber to keep me regular! I'll also post some pictures once it's done.

    I'll see if the picture will post:

    sweet, is this your first Leader bike? I ask because I've been considering getting one of their road bikes but haven't really encountered anybody who has ridden one.
    Booyah!!

    It's my first, but someone I ride with on occasion here has one of their standard road frames. He really likes it and suggested I look into them. I rode his for a few miles and it was responsive and handled nicely. Good warranty program for a small company. I placed two calls out to Leader in Cali...Brian was nice and helpful, and Chris took a lot of time talking to me about fit, my body size, measurements etc... to make sure I was ordering the right frame. He also gave me some tips about using paypal (it's all their online store uses for payment). And Sal (the owner/designer) seems to know his stuff. So, yea..I'm excited about having my first true TT bike very soon.

    Thanks for asking. It was called due to big black thunder clouds. And light rain, which later turned into heavy downpour. I'll keep everyone posted on the results from the reschedule though.

    Found a nice Sellle Italia seat I like for my TT bike build. Going to pick that up tonight after work. And it has Ti rails and matches the frame colors. It's very OCP. I also picked up a few more parts I'm in need of off of Ebay this weekend. It is going to be an Ultegra group build with Dura Ace bar end shifters. Friday is the scheduled arrival date for the majority of the stuff. Wooo Whooo!

    cycle17 - I know you hang out here a lot, but this thread isn't really Foo-related. I'm surprised that one of the mods hasn't shipped this over to the Road Cycling forum.

    Maybe I should have called the thread "Fooster's TT Ride."

    Zorro...what? No comment on the bike?

    A 1973 Fuji is my "A" ride, but in a few weeks, it'll be displaced by a 1969 Raleigh. I'm a roadie, but one of the retro-grouch variety. I'm coming to terms with some of the 80's technologies, but I don't anticipate being able to personally embrace CF technology for a few more years.

    Hmmm..slow day on BF..no interest in my new bike build. It's raining again today too. I think I'll go shopping for some Carbon Fiber headset spacers. Most people go pick up a gallon of milk or bread...cyclists bring home CF parts, racing tires or a new jersey.

    Looks like a nice build, but I'm on the lookout for a steel roadie or a folder so that just goes to show you where my interests lay. Let us know how the much faster the carbon TT is compared to your Trek's.

    Can't fool me. I know very well that you're selling it to your brother. Admit it. You've gone the "other" way......Not that there's anything wrong with that (Seinfeld).

    I have interest in it !!

    Raining here too...like maybe I should be checking out Arks instead ??

    I hate any post 80's technology but for some strange reason I am contemplating the
    purchase of a TT bike simply because its impossible to get a tall & short top-tubed
    roadie anymore and the bar end shifters instead of that crappo/garbage STI stuff.
    If I could find a frame that emulates my lates 70's motobecane I
    would be very happy, but, I digress.............
    Anyway....I was looking at a Foodji Aloha but this bike(Leader) looks really nice !!
    How are the Leader people to deal with ???

    Ill be watching for a ride report !

    Ha!! you read that in the MTB thread I see. Yes. I have actually sold the Klein to my brother. BUT... already plan on buying a brand new half squishy TREK SLR MTB 4900 or 6300 with disc brakes. My thought process is that my brother rides a few times a year and has pestered the crap out of me to sell him my Klein. I ride my roadie 85% of the time. So I sold him my treasured steed...on the condition that he must sell it back to me if he ever gets tired of it or MT Biking. He's way more anal about keeping things in pristine condition than I am! So It will be well kept and lightly ridden. I will be purchasing a brand new Trek MTB in the next few weeks to go riding with him. So everyone is happy. And the money from the Klein...... Just look at the photos in this thread!!

    I have ridden the FUJI Aloha actually. It's not bad at all. Leader has been fantastic to deal with! I cannot say enough about them to this point. And the craftsmanship on the stuff I got is very high. The frame is like $385 by itself, and a nice carbon road fork for it is around $150. It would be interesting to build it as a straight roadie I suppose if you needed the geometry it provides. I'll keep you posted on the build. I got everything I have for now together today. Now I've got to go squeeze some ridding in while the sun is still out!!

    A little further along... headset, fork assembly fitted. Steerer cut, carbon cap and expander installed, with carbon spacers under the stem, brakes mounted, BB faced & installed, crankset installed, Front deraillier on for rough fit. I need to decide on the base bar and aeros, so I can get those purchased and in route to me. Pretty much everything else I have.
