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

    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    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...
