when you restock the nitto rb021s can you get any in 25.4 380mm? i'd order them through alex cycles but i figured i'd rather support you and you're already ordering a large shipment from japan so even if you charge a premium for the size(understandable) it might wind up saving me on shipping, either way i'd rather throw my money to you than a random dude in japan

Just a suggestion if you ever make another lightweight jacket: Underarm vents! I feel that's all I'm missing with the Calv jacket, I overheat way too fast.

I definitely hear you. The new jackets (which will be here soon, I hope) are very well vented.

Will you only be releasing a thick winter jacket, or will there be a new softshell type jacket as well?

Another suggestion: The microfiber in the sleeves tends to just soak up sweat, maybe something to change?

Scrod, at some point, you suggested that aerospokes might show up on the site. Did that just not pan out?

Aerospoke ended up being pretty difficult to deal with and their communication sucks. When I send a vendor we're doing business with an e-mail, it shouldn't take a week or more to receive a response (if a response is received at all).

/Aerospoke.

They'll be bought soon. Waiting for my paycheck.

Also, I had to borrow some parts from my housemates stock kilo to slap on mines when I sold it. I figure I should rebuild his bike first.. Just having trouble going about it.

I borrowed his stock cog/lockring, handlebars, and tires and tubes.. His stock cranks are 3/32" (vero's) so I either replace his cog/lockring with some cheapos/let him use his stock chain, or buy him a new 1/8" chain and let him keep my DA cog/Rg lockring, and I was going to buy some new cheap cork tape since I found my old bars.

I'm also looking to buy him some new tires or let him have my Conti Ultrasports (pretty much new still <50miles).. Thing is when I asked him if I could he was like " yeah i'm going to buy some new tires anyways." yet he never did and it's been a few weeks already.

What do you think is the better alternative? This guy doesn't really ride bikes that much so I'm not sure if I should let him keep the DA cog/lockring.. but he does try to "skid" a lot. (even though I told him not to when he had his stock cog/lockring.. )

I think the cheaper alternative is to just give him the Ultrasports and buy him a Z410 chain. when I can find a cheapo 16t cog, I'll just swap it.

Dude...I have a pile of cheapo Vuelta lockrings and stamped 3/32" and 1/8" cogs that someone gave me a while back and can probably help you round up some other stuff too.

We just got a bunch of stem shims but I've been lazy getting them up on the site! I'll have them up sometime this weekend.

I kind of want to build an Excel frame, but I also kind of want to build a leader 721 or 725 or a 722ts :C Decisions, decisions.

(Mainly because my Kilo is too damn small)

Do the 722ts have the headbadge pictured on your site or this one:

What is the biggest tire size can the excel forks fit? I was hoping to fit a 28 panaracer tourguard on there.

EDIT: nevermind. I just saw that it was listed in the description. Up to 32.

Jaytron - which headbadge you get with the 722 frames is luck of the draw.

I recall reading that Leader will send you alternate head badges if you contact them. I thought my 722 was gonna come with the big chrome one, so I emailed them prior to me even receiving my frame, but they never responded. Ended up not mattering because I got the one I wanted.

I just emailed whatever address was on their support page. Really not worried about it now though.

So how much do you want for a 3/32" cog and vuelta lockring? If you ever get around to looking, I need some cheap cork tape and tires/tubes (and I mean cheap as in CHEAP)

Whatever you can provide, I'll buy along with my wheels within the next couple days.

Any idea when you will be getting 1/8" 17t cogs? I need one, and I'll probably pick up some other small things that I want but don't need.
EDIT:I'm a tard and should have read the last couple of posts.
