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)

T. Johnson Signature frame builds? Is this frame still available, or was it sold out before it was even released...?

I'd dig that frame if it weren't made for tricking. Curvy seat tubes = yum.

Finally the bike it was meant to be... So glad to be back on it.

Also Scrod before you say anything about my stack hight, I already know. I like it that way because how I am built and because I like to change bars and riding possition a lot.

Dude, that purple 725 looks great. Brooks saddles and water usually don't play nice with each other though.

It was mostly under my ass, but I agree... We left to take some photos and it started to rain... I think I'll keep the Madison for my rainy day crusader

in general i don't like the low spoke count wheels and aero seat tube/dt with the brooks and risers. but i'm sure it's a blast to ride.

new 735 or nothing.

The one thing I don't like about those frames is seeing a cut-out seat-tube with a wrist's worth of space between in and the tire. Shorter stays Leader, come on.

the 2011 looks like it should, but even an eno hub will look not quite right on a 2010.

rumor confirmed. i'm going to commit to this: no new bike until summer.

until then i might just start buying parts for it though. i'm thinking carbon clinchers, cinelli drops, omniums... hit the track a couple times with the kilo and then build up a leader.

so, leader fork, or ec90...

I just saw a teen maybe 17-18 take a hammer to her boyfreinds leader.... I really wanted to ask what she was doing and then proceed to take his bars(: But i was worried she would do the same to my roadie.... I wish i got a pic but i was kinda worried. It was a 725 i think, It had the even tubes. I knew it was a leader cause everything else was stickered up exept leader.
