    Although Thomsons are mechanically superior.

    My first track bike. I plan to continue my regular weekend visits to the Forest City Velodrome in Ontario, but now on a ride of my own and not a rental. Would like to eventually get into some racing.

    I went a little "tarck" with the rims in my wheel build, but I always enjoy the visual aspect of piecing the bike together so I went with some matching rims. If I really get into it I'll consider looking at a set of tubulars.







    Leader hand made lugged track frame
    Primarily Reynolds 853 with 631 in the seat stays, stainless polished head tube lugs
    Chris King 1" Nothreadset
    Thomson Elite X2 stem (90mm)
    Thomson Elite seatpost
    Selle Italia SLR XP saddle
    Deda Velocita chromoly track drop bars
    Miche Primato Pista crankset (48t)
    Taya 1/8" chain
    Shimano PD-A520 pedals
    White Industries Track hubset (32 hole)
    White Industries 15t splined cog
    Velocity Fusion rims (32h, non-machined)
    DT Swiss Revolution spokes (2.0/1.5/2.0)
    Vittoria Corsa EVO CX tires

    Was skeptical of getting a Leader at first, but I was really impressed with the quality and finishing work on the frame. I also really like the set screws feature to set the chain tension on the drop outs. Can't wait to ride it this weekend at the Velodrome!

    The sizing on those frames makes no sense at all though... super long TT's per any given ST.

    Yeah the TT sizing is a bit odd compared to the norm, but traditionally sized bikes have always fit me a little weird anyways, so this worked out in my favor. If I had the money ideally I'd go custom, but I don't!

    I'm excited to finally ride it this weekend.

    It looks like a Raleigh, but it's not. The previous owner won some events in the Pan American games riding it. It was built in 1982 by a very prominent builder. Any guess what it is?

    Tom Kellogg designed Spectrum. The handling and ride quality is amazing
    I got both wheelsets (Cane Creek V-33 and AC 420) for less than the price of one through some good deals. Also Totalcycling.com has a great deal on the campy cranks because of the exchange rate

    Thanks, man. Yeah, even with the rims it's 16.0 lbs. Not bad for a 58cm.

    yea that's light for that size. I think a lot of people get caught up in the weight game but don't realize the bigger you go, the heavier it should be since more forces are involved. I don't think it's always best to have the lightest when you're more taller than 5'9" and over 170lbs (but what do I know). Lightest doesn't always mean performance

    Not sure if this has been posted here or not. I've quit the message board business lately(frickin' tarck) but since racing season is upon us I figured I'll hang out in here sometimes.




    Normal ass '05 Concept. Needs new tires. It came with Maxxis Detonators and by golly do they suck. I'm thinkin' Vredstein Fortezzas.

    Just got my '09 FTP. Pretty much stock, just saddle and grip swap so far. After Wed night racing I'm thinking a +1cm stem might be in order, but otherwise this bike handles great. Very responsive.

    Carleton, I recognize that bike (and you). I think I saw you last night at the Dick Lane Velodrome?

    If so, weird coincidence ...
