    Nope, just posted on Leader's FB page. It's the first 722 Heritage that I've seen built up.

    I'm not crazy about that particular build, but I really like the "Heritage Edition" frame.

    Anyone else having issues with the binder bolt on their 722s? I broke mine in half last night after stripping it....

    I had an issue with my 722-rs'... but that is because I didn't know what I was doing. Learn and live.

    A Black Friday impulse buy turned in to an early Christmas present. Leader love indeed.

    I think the cutout in those frames looks totally wrong. I give a big thumbs down to that design.

    Yeah. It looks like it will snap in half when you sit on it.

    i will admit i like it when the wheel is slammed and the tire's a mm from rubbing.

    but especially as pictured above, i agree. heavy, stupid, flexy design.

    put on my VO stem to be a cutesy matcher (it's a little shorter than ideal probably, but okay with my massive setback).

    the 25.4 to 31.8 shim makes me a little nervous though

    Looks good, man.

    The shim shouldn't make you nervous at all.

    I race my Concept with a 25.4 to 31.8 shim. Standing starts and all. No problemo. In fact, it actually helps reinforce the bar.
    It is a bit ugly, though, so you do lose some style points.

    What is this stigma with handlebar shims? I called 3 LBS around me when I needed one and every single one tried to convince me it was a bad idea.

    had a LBS telling me not to put one on my girl's handlebars too (for her brake levers). I'm like worst case scenario, and I mean absolutely worst case, it becomes loose and she she has to use her other brake for her ride home. RELAAAAX GUUYZ

    I was only nervous about this one because it's such a big gap measure and it's like... my stem. but I feel better now

    They'd obviously rather sell you a new set of bars than a shim.

    pic you can actually see. someone told me my saddle to bar drop wasn't significant enough, but any lower and I think my neck would be in a bad place (also testing my seatpost a few mm lower than where I normally keep it). sorry it's NDS, wasn't planning to snap one when I locked it up

    oh and tarck drops still suck. I tried to fool myself
