Leader Track Drops

Sorry for such a stupid question, but does anyone have these and have a photo of it installed on a bike?

Thanks in advance.

25.6 doesn't exist.

there is also no standard diameter.

25.4mm, 26.0mm, and 31.8mm are all pretty common

the only rare size i know if is cinelli's more or less proprietary diameter of 26.4mm

I got a pair of these, they are 25.4. they are pretty crappy overall. the finish and the bends look very unprofessional but the worst part is the fact that the drop portion of the bar barely has enough room for my hands, & I have average sized hands.


sorry no pic's with them mounted but i took them off just about as soon as i had them wrapped, took one little test ride and hated them.

I think 25.4mm is more of a MTB bar diameter now

Well, that's unfortunate. I was hoping for a good review so I could just head down to their store here in SD and grab one. Guess not. Out of curiosity, stillanimal, how much do they weigh?

go to the post office and use their scale. I do that quite often

What kind of bar tape is that? Doesn't look very grippy..

No offense, stillanimal, but your hands look more "chubby" than "average."

Anyways, the "standard diameter" thing is kind of off-putting. They don't even put an actual number, ha! I don't think these are any better than any generic drop you could buy.
