    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    What's the frame size? If it's anywhere between 58 and 61, it's a piece of junk. I saw some PSA sent out by Leader saying that there was some kind of screw up in the factory and that all the frames have to be disposed of by a licenced Leader frame-demolisher. By lucky coincidence, I am just that! So, for your own safety, send the frame to me. Including the components as they've now been tainted by the frame (it was some kind of curse or something, eternal damnation, rashes, etc). I'll PM you my address.

    Because my "real cyber friends" are all over here in Foo. Why? I posted one in Road Cycling too and there have been more looks here in Foo than over there.

    Good idea to post in foo. I'd never have seen this in the Triathlon forum since I never go in there. BTW, nice bike!

    Thanks Jyossarian! And thanks slvoid....I think. I wouldn't buy any of those three over priced bikes you posted pictures of....well...the Pinarello...BUT! Only if Mette Fischer from Team Sats/Pinarello came with it, otherwise...no way!! For those of you men who don't know who Mette Fischer is....let me enlighten you...while I wipe the drool from my mouth...

    yep...I don't get that...honestly...I always give slvoid his props, but I think that was kind of a *hitty thing to reply with. I don't have $10,000 for one of those. I built this bike myself for under $2,000. Maybe slvoid is just being a wise-*ss. No biggie.

    Huh. O.K. in the same thread I posted over on the Road Bike forum, a guy was basically commenting that I have too thick of bar wrap on the bike. It's Gel-Cork and it's one wrap and it's nice and comfy, so my hands don't go numb. If my hands go numb and I steer off the road at 30 mph... that nice thin bar tape, will have helped me how?! Now you guys know why I prefer being over here in Foo most of the time. Geesh.

    I notice that you posted stock pictures, rather than one of your own. I therefore deduce that the reason for this is that you don't have one either. Leaping from that conclusion, I have to ask you to be a sport and share with cycle17 the information (from your own experience?) on where to make the return.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    The rules don't say I have to have one.
