Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

What exactly are you looking for? A frameset a complete? What's your budget, if your going to buy that frame and build up a bike. If you don't really know what your doing why not just buy a new complete it would probably be cheaper.

Leader 725 Sea Green 58 cm (willing to part out)

Found a nice looking leader 725. Does the price of this bad boy look too high? I really don't know much about good brands and quality parts. Wondering if $1200 on this bike is a deal, a fair price, or asking too much?

It doesn't seem like much of deal to me.

I'm not sure how great the All-City hubs are or if you really want red rims, but you can deep v's laced to formula hubs for less than that new.

I think they are the same as Novateks, but maybe Scrod can confirm. Decent hubs for sure, but no better than the sealed cartridge Formula hubs used in Velomine wheelsets.

All-City track hubs are indeed just rebranded Novatecs. In comparison to Furmula hubs, the hardware on Novatecs is a little nicer and they are a bit lighter.

FWIW, the majority of Velomine's wheels are now machine-built.

And just cause some guy on CL says they are hand built doesn't make it so. My friend found a really good deal on a Bianchi road bike on CL and went to meet the guy in a parking lot and they guy had a completely different bike. Same model frame but older and more beat up with completely different and crappier components than what was in the pictures in the ad. Always a crapshoot on CL

Considering the only place one can order a pre-built wheelset laced to any All-City hubs is through a shop having a QBP account (who hand-builds all their custom wheels) I would assume they are in fact hand built.

If this was one size bigger, I'd probably buy it just on principle.

Hey guys, do me a favor and keep your eyes peeled for early 90s ('93 in particular) Cannondale 3.0s. Preferably blue, but I'm open to anything. 58s or 60s.

Frameset only would be ideal. I'd pay to ship even.
