    I don't think its a 53cm... more like 49, especially when you see how the top and down tubes are welded together before being welded to the head tube.... and how the dude in the pic's hand can easily span the entire head tube....

    I don't see any chrome or any dubs in that picture (700c wheels are a pimpin' 24" in diameter). I would have to see a tape measure on that frame to believe it's 53 cm.

    I believe you that it's a raw Leader but I'm not buying that it's a 53...especially since this is a 51:



    You may not be aware that Leader's measurements are based on center of BB to the top of the top tube. You're most likely measuring to the top of the seat tube. The BB shell should be stamped with the size.

    My road bike has 53cm top tube with a 29.7" standover, and my singlespeed has a 53.6cm top tube with a 29.4" standover.

    I still don't understand the whole dubz thing? Those aren't 20" wheels?
