    lol, sorry if it comes off as one. I should have elaborated a bit on it. Does anyone own the new 2011 model. I couldn't find many reviews on it as It's kinda new. But just wanted to know if anyone rode one and compared it to older models.

    I have one with the correct fork from Leader that is about 3 years old, I have yet to build up. I know it's not the finest frame on the market, but what is the issue with the geometry?

    The top tube to head tube ratio is way too peculiar for my taste.

    Those welds are definitely below average quality .

    A couple of my group riders own some leaders and I can tell you they weren't to happy about it .

    There were a few instances where a crack or so would form around the edge of the weld .

    I personally do not own one so I cannot say but I doubt the crack formed from careless riding .

    I also find it strange that leader parts can be a bit pricey yet the frames seem like a bargain at their prices .

    Overall I would not recommend purchasing 735 if you want to use it more that casual riding because of the experience I seen with it ; but that is just my opinion .
    Occupation : Training PKMN and riding bikes .
