    for what he spent he could have gotten a used concept or maybe even a less expensive build(cranks alone) with a real super pista.

    agreed, he didn't exactly skimp on some of the parts... plus the cost of the paint (which looks well done) and decals...

    I was going to start this post off at first about how the super pista and leader 725 aren't that different, just the bianchi uses 7005 tubing (though house brand, and probably of marginal difference to the majority of buyers of these frames), and both have similar geometry with identical angles and nearly identical chainstay lengths, etc

    then i saw leader's gigantic top tube measurments. what the hell is a 56cm top tube doing on a 53 bike? i know bikes aren't built to be square and the rider should be more stretched out than the initially think, but even so that seems excessively long for the second smallest size. my conversion was a 56 square and while the seat tube was a bit tall, but fine, the reach was never terribly comfortable unless i had a pretty small stem.

    just seems a bit wacky

    Leader's geo actually makes a lot of sense to me (because I have long arms like a damn chimp and prefer a longer tt) but I can see how some may be a little put off by it. At any rate, making a Leader look like a Super Pista is more than a little stupid.

    No wonder you ride a 43.

    As a concept owner I think its a decent ripoff. At least from slightly far away, where passing cars can see.
