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)

Question about leader custom CL AD

Looking on Cl and i found a full leader frameset with everything included. Guy wanted 9 for it came down to 8 without any effort at all maybe could get it down to more...

Anyway im looking for a nice city cruiser, i have a road bike that i would just switch riding in between both. I live in NYC..

Anyway; this is whats in it
Leader 735 track frame
Omnium Crank set
B-witched handbars
Grunge Stem
Animal Grips
Hold fast Straps
Fyxation thin pedals
Thompson seatpost
Concor Selle San Marco seat
Mavic Ellipse wheelset 16t cog
Vittoria Randonneur tires


(anyone know if the frame is drilled for rear brakes?)

Sounds like it would be a pretty good deal to me, depending on the bike's condition and the year of the frame.

The 725 is drilled for a rear brake so I'd assume the 735 is too. I'll let some one with more knowledge chime in to corroborate.

800 still seems a bit high unless he's the first owner of all the parts and they're all in good condition. I would try to meet him at 700 if I were you.

Yes, the 735 has a rear brake mount.

Think if I got it for 750 it would be good? I'm not looking to make a turn around on this bike and make a profit just looking for a nice city ride..

Give you a hand? Do you want me to send a heartfelt letter asking the guy to just accept $200?

Dude, it's $50 dollars. Who cares. Just buy it and quit being a jerk.

Personally, I wouldn't pay more than 600 bucks for that in Oregon dollars. No idea what the fixed gear market is like in NYC but that's about what it would fetch here.

Everyone knows that fixed gears are over.
