Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Leader Bike Build Pic Thread-Post Your Leader Builds!

Hey,

I've been seeing more Leader bikes show up in various threads and thought that it would be a nice idea to have one thread for people to show off their builds.

Please keep all criticisms or opinions out of the thread with regards to the company Leader. This thread is for people to post their build projects using these frames, not as an avenue for diatribes.

Here's my recently finished 722TS. Was built as my winter training bike, same geometry and position as my road bikes, same crank length too. I'm simply floored with the service and product that Leader has provided, outstanding. Feel free to PM me and I'll tell you all about it.

Component list
2010 722TS hydroformed steel frame
Sram leftover cross crank (172.5)
Specialized Langster fork
FSA carbon seatpost
Ritchey 90mm stem
Selle Italia SLK saddle
FSA Omega compact bars
Cane Creek levers
Campagnolo Zenon brakes
Wheels
-Shimano Sante front hub (salsa skewer), Dura Ace rear
-15g spokes, 1x up front, 2x rear
-Mavic OP w/25c Armadillo's
