    "Longer and wider rear end for better tire clearance".... <--- there was a whole thread practically dedicated to this topic.

    i think it speaks for itself how the design of their frames have changed almost every year.

    I just saw this on their website and was hoping to see how people felt about it, but i guess not...

    Personally i got excited(love the look of aero frames) but i am wary about leader's history

    It was removed by LeaderBikes. Maybe he doesn't feel like dealing with the fallout from the 721 track fork end debacle.

    Leader 721TR is out.

    Look at how tight the rear clearance is, then look at how far into the track fork end the wheel is. Yeah...

    There was another thread with people complaining about/discussing this issue, but I can't find it.

    If you click on the color option, it shows a sample of the color in the shape of the frame (I had the same thought).

    I think they should have stuck with the original 31:
    * Banana Nut Fudge
    * Black Walnut
    * Burgundy Cherry
    * Butterscotch Ribbon
    * Cherry Macaroon
    * Chocolate
    * Chocolate Almond
    * Chocolate Chip
    * Chocolate Fudge
    * Chocolate Mint
    * Chocolate Ribbon
    * Coffee
    * Coffee Candy
    * Date Nut
    * Egg Nog
    * French Vanilla
    * Green Mint Stick
    * Lemon Crisp
    * Lemon Custard
    * Lemon Sherbet
    * Maple Nut
    * Orange Sherbet
    * Peach
    * Peppermint Fudge Ribbon
    * Peppermint Stick
    * Pineapple Sherbet
    * Raspberry Sherbet
    * Rocky Road
    * Strawberry
    * Vanilla
    * Vanilla Burnt Almond

    Also, all white = ghost bike = don't mess with ghosts.

    Because this thread doesn't follow the right format. It should have been something like,

    "Hey guys, anyone know anything about Leader frames? I've been looking for a new bike and these seem so perfect for what I need. High quality aluminum with double butted tubing, it sure seems like this is the best bike on the market. They're also going for such a good price that at this price point they can't be beat."

    Then apparently you can spam the forums to your heart's content
