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)

The fork may be expensive but it's worth every dollar IMO.

The fork is worth it IMO, 100% cf, true track fork, very light, very stiff, very nicely made.

Despite all the hate and half-assed builds, Leader still has a place in my heart. Maybe I'll sell my IRO someday and get some spiffy new frame.

There does seem to be an overwhelming amount of "what the hell was this person thinking" Leader builds out in the world.

The hate is mostly just bull**** at this point.

This is the frame I originally wanted but the geometry never would have worked for me. Looooong top tube and I'm not built like a primate (like a certain someone around here ).

This is really nice:



Love the blue/chrome!

yah i was seconds away from pulling the trigger on that lugged white frame (so awesome looking) but the top tube was just waaaaay too long for my liking/comfort. and i have decently long wingspan. i didn't want to have to lay down on the bike to ride it (exaggerating)

oh but those other new leaders are quite spiffy. that blue one and scrods being the only builds ive seen of them, but both are quite nicely done. im sure someone will jackass together a crap build and post it sooner or later
