    721s typically come with a seatpost clamp. Just in case yours doesn't, it's 31.8mm.

    I've been drooling over a 722ts recently. To be honest, it's the hardest I've ever fallen for a Leader.

    But I just can't get around the length of the damn top tube. My proportions are completely opposite--long legs, short torso.

    Mash rip-off not-withstanding, that's damn sexy. Are you planning on keeping this one long-term or just playing with it while you have them in stock?

    Any pictures of the BB area? I'm curious how it compares to Cinelli's.

    nice.

    my 725 had paint all in the bb threads, but a little gas cleared that up.

    loving my Leader build. got some double straps for it after this pic was taken, and threw on an emergency brake. about 100mi on it at this point and it feels like it was made for me......by me...

    I love the simple decals on the TT for the kagero with the super complicated HT design. <3 It's a lot more toned down than I thought it was going to be though, maybe it's scrod's lighting

    Could be as simple as spot replacing the last 1 in "LBPC2011" with a "2" with paint spot repair process...

    I like them a whole lot, really dont think I could ask for more. Super light yet still stiff, and absolutely no play in them. I think Im in love, lol! Only thing is I lost one of the bearing dust caps on the bb. Ill try to get a replacement from gxp or sram even though it has no ill effect. Im super peculiar about little crap like that.
