    never had double straps before.. do any work with the wellgo track pedals? I'm thinking no unless it can be rigged.

    or are there any single strap toe clips out there that split like the 4x design?

    Hahahah, **** yes, Scrod.
    Just saw the Carpathian Forest shirt on your site. Classic metal tee, but even better with the bike in it.

    Your design? I just saw Mayhem in AZ for the second time on Monday, so grvmm.

    Mine aren't rigged in any way and work just fine:



    Some people use long bolts that hold the clip to the pedal and tuck the second strap up underneath them but it's not necessary.

    To add of this question, any idea if they are going to eliminate selling 61cm frames if/when they refresh? I know when they refreshed all the aluminum frames they stopped selling anything larger than 58cm. I'm kind of kicking myself for not buying one of the Black Friday deals but I just dropped a bunch of cash on road bike stuff and Xmas gifts for others Just couldn't swing it this month.

    I'm not sure if will be available as a frameset but there will be a new version of the steel fork with a 30mm rake to accommodate the steeper angles of the new 722 frame. I haven't heard anything regarding sizing, price or a release date yet.

    Seeing all these jackass Leader's on facebook pisses me off. You should set up a quick quiz to see if buyers are worthy enough!

    Velocity USA is sold out at the moment and as soon as they get them back in stock, we will too.

    Yeah Jandro just told me. A little bummed about it, but you did warn us prior to ordering. I guess my Leader will be black with mostly black components. I'm thinking of just moving the black wheels with gold nipples and gold chain over for some color. I don't really want a murdered out look, it's super played out imo.

    ahahha, your Earl isn't completely "murdered out" there's some silver there

    I was also contemplating a silver seatpost/rims/bars/chain to go with the rest of my black components... Scrod, how's this headset: http://www.retro-gression.com/produc...oglide-headset compared to the FSA and the VP comp on your site?

    I saw a photo a couple weeks ago of a black bike with black rims, hubs, and spokes with gold nipples, gold headset cups, and some very subtle red accents. Looked super nice and not that typical murdered out look.

    Overall quality is comparable but the Orbit-X is one of my favorite headsets and is extremely good bang for the buck. I took one apart after nearly a year and there was literally no gunk inside.

    Now we're talking. That's what I would do if I got a black frame and didn't want to go MO'd. But then people might think you're a Raiders fanatic, which if you are then it's not a problem. Man I can see this thing in my head now, I think it would look sick. You get a black fork? Maybe go with silver stem and black bars.
