    So for my 725 build I plan on building B43's but i'm not sure what hubs to use. Anyone have any suggestions on what would work best with them for fixed gear?

    FOER rims from Scrod are also significantly lighter than B43s (though still not "light") and are a similar depth. You might want to look into those as well.

    Those look good have you used them before? Can the take a bit of a beating from horrible road conditions?

    Ha...thanks for the plug.

    Those Novatecs are unbranded All-City standard track hubs and can take whatever you can throw at them.

    I just checked out those rims. not to keen on the logo on the rim. That was one of the reasons I like the B43 besides being pretty durable.

    The decals on the FOER 41s peel right off (I hate them too).

    Yeah, any standard cog/lockring can be used on the Novatec hubs.

    I haven't. They seem very nice though.

    Does any place sell the foer wheels built up already? Also, I'm sure this has been coved somewhere but is there a big difference in quality between the Visp and leader frames? I'm leaning towards the leader 725. Thanks.
    trying is the first step towards failure.

    Nope the only place I know that sells them is retrogression.

    Yes there is a difference between VISP and leaders; leaders are lighter and the quality control for leader makes VISP's quality control a far cry. Proof is leader through their primary distribute coghouse, putting a whole bunch of leader frames with minor, I mean minor, hairline scratches/ chips in paint up on ebay as factory second frames for penny auctions.

    I just ordered a Leader 2010 725 TR V2 (51Cm) frame,so now I need a fork, but I'm looking for a different fork Other than the "Leader Reaper" or the "Leader Polish Gloss", could any help with telling me the exact size of any other fork that could fit the Leader 725 frame?.....

    o.O gold cranks are notoriously hard to fit into a build and still have it be aesthetically pleasing....
