    I think you could build that up for less than is being asked.
    Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.

    It's a 2009 lugged Leader frame. They made very few.

    I first saw pics of that particular bike a couple of years ago and always thought it would be much nicer looking with silver rims.

    It has been listed before in the past for the same price. I doubt he will get even close to $1800 for it.

    It's nice but I would not spend $1800. My own bike didn't cost anywhere close to that (did get some dealzz though).

    Even if it is "almost new" it is still used to me and you can't get full retail for it.

    Tell me about it. My white Tiemeyer has a million smudges on it.

    That's what's wrong with Tiemeyer? No wonder you got the Dolan in black.

    That thing is sweet...

    I was debating doing something similar on my white windsor but its just a beater commuter so I dont think a white seat and tape would be ideal..

    always loved the whiteout bikes though

    Oh. Hard to recognize a leader without the Aerospokes and 50mm stem.

    If I had $1800 to spend on a bike, that Leader wouldn't even be on my radar.

    For that money you could build a Pelizzoli or a keirin frame with decent parts.

    1800 for a leader? Seems too good to be true.

    Don't like the clearance on the fork.

    It's not a bad bike but I can't get excited about it.

    Think of it as incentive to wipe it down with a wet damp rag after every ride ? I do that with my black bike, it's quicker and easier to keep it clean that way without turning the hose on it and using a bucket of soapy water. The beauty of the white color is that the hot sun won't bake the bike frame components, less expansion and contraction from that heat. the white is reflective yet not like chrome or silver. I know it made a huge difference having a white car in FL during the summer.
