Selling my 2011 Leader 722TS Raw custom track bike. It was built up in July of 2011 as a replacement for my stolen '03 Bianchi Pista. It's got very few miles, no dents, dings, scratches and I just haven't had time to ride over the past year and a half. So, rather than have it continue to sit around and collect dust sitting in my trainer, I've decided that it's time for it to go. It needs a better home.
In all, the parts, build etc. would run over $1600+. Considering that the bike is in like new condition, I would say that I would like to entertain offers around $1000. It's a lot of bike for the money. You'll be hard pressed to find smoother and more comfortable pedals than the Royal Nuevos, the hubs are just about the smoothest I've ridden after Phil Wood and Dura Ace, the Sugino Messenger cranks are stiff and strong. The Leader 722TS frame has a raw metal finish, tight but comfortable grometry, is hand TIG welded, and has tensioning bolts built it to the rear dropouts. The rims are the Velocity Halo color Deep-Vs (http://www.velocityusa.com/default.asp?contentID=747). I am also going to throw in some Soma Urban Pursuit bullhorn bars. Never used, never installed. Were for another project that ended up getting some Nitto bullshorns instead.
