    Leader 735 vs 725 vs Unknown LV2?

    The LV2 looks nice but then the downtube looks abnormally thick for some reason.
    Anyways, the 735 vs 725 vs Unknown LV2.

    And why you like that one.

    735 is so ugly. I have yet to see one that I like.

    hmmm. I somewhat disagree; however, a 725 would be an excellent choice. Or a 721 on sale here.

    OP, didn't you like any of the answers you got here and here?

    P.S. If you had ordered the 725 from retrogression like many recommended you would probably have it by now.

    We need a Mash vs. Kagero vs. Cdale track thread now.

    But if you must know my opinion, I like the 725 best of those three.

    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    It's a generic carbon track frame. I've seen that frame under about 3 different names. It should cost around $800 new (give or take).

    i'm sure i could find some equally ridiculously set up leaders for comparison...

    i like the lv2 but for the money i would rather have a chinese carbon biek.

    or a chinese carbon bike instead of the set of tires i have to buy for the subaru AAUGGH CARS MAN WHYY

    General Altimax HP. I have them on my Tibby, they're amazing for the price.

    I like the LV2 too and I'm getting for $315 so I thought it's worth it

    I like all of them but the new leader 725 is really sick if I was going to get any alu frame that would be it.

    I like how the LV2's (and VISP WIndWing's) seat tube cut out follows the shape of the wheel better than the Leader's.
