    wasn't ready to drop $100 on a 31.8 set of track drops so I'm doing the 100mm X4 atm. did not expect this kind of rise out of it. I'll probably end up throwing it under a spacer once I'm done

    also trying out my first 172.5 crank arms

    +1 on the Grand Cru... Brooks looks great with the 722, and a Grand Cru would complete the look.

    Not everyone likes the Arione. I happen to think it's an ass hatchet.

    I'm getting really annoyed at the comments and pictures being posted up on Leaders FB wall. Almost to the point where I want to block them from my feed.

    Ass builds and people love it, quality builds and people say: "n33dz t4rck dropz."

    WTF is wrong with people?

    I have an Arione on my Mash. Im going Brooks on the 722. I may replace the seat post if the Thomson feels funky. Serious question: if you don't need the setback, why wouldn't a straight seat post be okay with a Brooks? Seems like you have to own a grand cru if you own a brooks

    You'll see. Getting the angle and fore/aft is crucial with a Brooks and a zero setback seatpost will put it in the wrong place beneath your sit bones and will be in a weird position in relation to your cranks. You don't necessarily need a Grand Cru, but straight posts don't cut it for most people when using a Brooks.

    Damn. I was afraid of that from previously having issues with my Brooks/Thomson combo on the leader, was hoping that was from the reach and drop. At least Grand Cru posts are pretty cheap. Thomson y u so sexy

    I've actually heard people say they only use one strap because the only skid on one side.

    Fools.
