    suzue pro max, laced to aeroheads.

    The top tube is nice, but it has the concave strip running along the top (to ad stiffness) that I fear will become a sort of bowl-o-sweat

    Wow it looks great. I really love bikes with integrated headsets and flat bladed forks like that. A smooth line from fork to frame and then one of those curved caps on the top just looks soo sweet.

    Love it!

    Well played.

    Either way, the frames do look alarmingly similar, do they not?

    Yeah but what's in a look?

    There is different seat tube angles, head tube angles, bottom bracket drops and marginally different effective top tubes between the two bikes, so they're not really that similar beyond looking close to each other.

    If you're going to ignore the nitty gritty aspects of frame geometry most bikes pretty much look "alarmingly similar"...

    Please explain.

    Wait, wait, hold on. Please go back to my first post in this thread; I said I've never seen either in person and I don't know much about either. My question was to find out if, in fact, the look was indicative of something else (like same frame, different brands or whatnot).

    So you've answered my question by relaying that the angles are different.

    I supposed I should have started by asking directly if they were the same frame or not instead of comparing the looks. My bad.

    Oh nothing meant by it, I just find that to my more or less untrained eye nearly all aluminum track frames look basically the same on a superficial level, so I don't see looks being much of a valid measure of how similar a bike is... aside from aesthetics naturally

    They do look a lot alike, the factory probably designs the frame and then shop it around to whomever wants to stick their decals on it. At least, that is my understanding of the bicycle industry of late...

    the top tube is different on the leader, the seat tube is different on the leader, basically everything's different.

    this looks a **** ton like the fuji track pros.

    but whatever.

    The differences between the leader and coltello have already been mentioned, but yeah it is similiar to a Fuji Track Pro. But I haven't ridden/seen up close a fuji track pro recently so I can't say exactly HOW similar.

    As for cost I am not certain of MSRP, but I got a smoke'n deal (pro deals rock)..

    Chainring is Zen but when I'm not at the track I ride road drops and a brake as opposed to track drops and brakeless. I like brakes, sue me.
