This or That?
I'm new to the forums and need you guys expertise/help.
I want to purchase a new bike. I've been considering building a Leader 725tr from scratch, but I'm slowly realizing that it's going to cost me over $800 to build the bike I want.
It would be something along the lines of:
Leader 725tr frame
Sugino Messenger Cranks
Cane Creek Headset
Velocity Deep V wheelset
pedals, stem, bullhorns, tires, tape, etc.
I saw the Motobecane Team Track on BD
and was wondering if anyone had any experience with that bike. I'm not familiar with how the quality of the parts compares, but that build seems like a good deal.
How do you think they compare? I am looking to mostly use it for commuting, but I want a bike that's fast and durable. I'm not planning on tricking or anything like that.
The price overall isn't my major concern, I just want to get the best value for my money. If the Moto has much better quality/parts for the price, then I don't see why I wouldn't go with that. Any help or comments on your experiences with either bike/build would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
(p.s. if this can be better directed to a more appropriate thread, please let me know. thanks)
