    That's what she... oh never mind.

    That green colorway is pretty hot, I must say. Also <3 cuttouts.
    Attack in the feeling because it says I'll win absolutely.

    Agreed. Are we over the "Macaframa" issue yet?

    I immediately changed my opinion on that cutout.

And your right, it wasn't difficult to wrap my head around it - once someone said it. However to someone like myself who doesn't know Leaders weld history, it appears to be something that should have been there all along, and listed as a feature so they can charge more. Thanks for filling me in.

    Also, that candy apple 722 w/cutout looks amazing.

    Right, but all the models that do have smooth welds say so in the description. Some have them, some don't. I really don't get why that's so confusing.

    I like the Leader-frama. Looks like a varsity jacket.

    I'm just trying to say that I feel it should be standard on all models. Not a "feature" that you have to pay for.

    ie- My 721 does not have smooth welds. The description does not say smooth welds. It also doesn't have a derailleur hanger, so the description doesn't say that either.

    That green looks so nice.

    Really enjoy the graphics... just found the font and made a cutting file to replicate them. This should hold me over until I can buy one.

    Then don't buy one. Problem solved.

    It costs more to produce smooth welds. Should the price not reflect that?

    A multi panel gif for Scrod because we were arguing and that wasn't a nice thing for us to do.

    Cutout on the Heritage 722 is sweet.

    I can't justify any more sw8 fixxays, though, and certainly not another steel ride.

    I looked at this exact picture when looking at options to decide what frame color I wanted. I was thinking green frame with either blacked out components or silver and black or brown.

    I'm in. Unless there's some kind of initiation to join, then I'm down for the initiation. Unless it's something weird, then I'm not down. I'll stop talking now.
