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)

opinions on this bike

Don't know a whole lot about Leader bikes. Is this bike worth getting? Yes it fits, nice upgrades, Ultegra hubs and cranks, campy rims. Upgraded to the carbon fork. I know they have had problems in the past, I'm not sure what year this bike is. I have had non-track riders say this bike is a track bike, and I've heard track riders say its a street bike. After asking the track guys about it, I thought maybe picking it up for street riding.Thanks

1. No such thing as ultegra track hubs or cranks.
2. 735tr is a straight up track frame.
3. That bike looks tiny as hell. If your 53cm kilo fit, I really doubt this will.

Looks like a scrounged together parts bike that someone is trying to get too much money for.

If you're fitting comfortably on the bike with the seat all the way back like that the frame is probably too small
