    The thing that's great about the Grand Cru seatpost is that even though it has so much setback, the clamp is small and positioned in a way that leaves a ton of room for fore/aft adjustment. If you're planning on using a Brooks saddle (which has short rails), you'll find that even with the saddle all the way back, it's still pretty centered above the post.

    Oh and BTW - I can have Noodles in stock in three days.

    Heya...been lurking for a while. Loving the Leaders...looking to purchase a frame this month.

    Can't decide....722ts or 725tr? Will be used for a daily rider, work commute, etc.

    I know steel is a more comfortable ride in general...just curious to those who have ridden both models.

    Thoughts?

    I love the 722ts and as far as a steel frame goes its very sprinty and light. I have an aluminum track frame (not a leader) and it certainly isnt what I would want for a daily commuter. The 722ts has been a great happy medium between an aluminum frame and a steel frame. I want to ride it again but im waiting on parts...

    aluminum is second sexier in the raw, right next to titanium.

    just sit tight guys; I just have to find some good background scenery.

    Thanks for the info...Just ordered the 722 in black with S805 fork.

    Was hard to locate a black frame...leader is all out. Luckily iMiNUSD had one last 55 in stock.

    Stoked!
