    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.

    so, leader fork, or ec90...
    about the new 735tr? where did you hear about this, what about the new 735 has got you so amped?

    can they be mounted on the front? someone said they didnt have as much power as a dual pivot front, do you find this to be true?

    the chainstays of aluminum leaders over the years makes me wonder if they even try to test them.

    The chainstays on my 721 (v2) seem perfect. The tire just touches if you push the wheel all the way forward in the dropouts, so about halfway there is about 1.5cm gap. I *thought* they were the same as the 725 minus the seattube.

    Wipe away your tears. Since I wear a Camelbak, anyway, I can stuff the spare tubie, mini pump and peanut butter wrench in there instead.

    i pretty much got my part list done, but can't decide on cranks.

    miche or omniums on a 722ts frame? are omniums too thick for this frame?

    found this pic, and i think they work.

    unless its a lugged frame (and even some lugged frames look good with them) i think the omniums look sweet on many bikes including the 722ts. though do you really need them? they are a bit overkill for just the street. i might go with the s300 1.1 cranks and save some cash for other parts. just some food for thought...

    Neither, go for sugino 75's; the 722 was designed as more of a classic steel track frame. Sugino 75's in all its classical and bold styling and solid performance is the perfect match. Leave the omniums and miche for the carbon and aluminum aero track frames. You will not regret this decision.

    miche's look fine on steel frames imo, and its not exactly lugged so the omniums dont look too bad. but if you have the funds, i agree with happypills, by all means get the 75's.

    Haha true. The classic steel is just so clean to me. I am seriously done with the aluminum aero, who wants to trade their steel frame for my 725tr? =P

    yeah...75s are my first choice, but thought THOSE were overkill.

    But they're the best looking and I would never need to upgrade. Hmmmmm...

    Next question...anyone running 170's have pedal strike issues?

    I've got 170s on mine. No issues with pedal strike and toe overlap is non-existent on these frames.
