Frame:Leader 735TT
Fork: Leader Aero CF Fork
Aero Bar / Base Bar / Stem : Profile Design Carbon X (with integrated stem)
Seatpost: Leader CF
Saddle: Token Kelvar wrapped
Shifters: DA 10 Speed
FD, RD, Brake set, Crank: Ultegra SL
Front Wheel: Vuelta XRP Elite (soon to be upgraded to an 85mm dish aero wheel, and the Vuelta will become my training set)
Rear Wheel: Renn Disc
Hydration: (3) Token CF Cages + Hydrotail

My budget weekend racer. I did a couple of shorter distance races on my road bike with clip on aero bars, but this fall I started building up this bike. I'm still dialing it in but hopefully I will try it out at a local Time Trial in mid May. I was planning on doing a couple of triathlons this spring, but still recovering from an injury so hopefully by summer time I will be good to go. I still need to grip wrapping for my bars.

LOL! I wish, but if you look closely at both bikes you will see that the rear cut out on the seat tube is a little high and therefore does not hug the wheel properly. So instead of throwing out the whole batch Leader Bikes decided to sell these frames for $199.99. A great deal and other than the cut out the frame is top notch! I just test road mine I'm still fiddling with the bars to get that perfect fit but so far I'm very happy It's rock solid nice and stiff in the bottom bracket should be I nice ride.

Thanks for the compliment. Your Leader looks really sharp in all black. I agree, I think it was a really good deal even with the cutout not quite lining up.

I am not a triathlete, can't run, can't swim, but I can bike. I went from this:

It was my first experiment with a TT bike. It failed miserably. Now in better shape and a bit faster I am riding this:

I am still working on the fit, but it is close. I will cut the steerer tube down once I am in the ballpark. I also need to pull the aero extensions back about 1 cm.

Those are Blackwell Research Performer SS Clip-On - Carbon. Best price was from All3Sports.


The base bar is a Syntace Carbon.

Here are a few, I am currently writing about my experience learning how to TT and what I looked at before deciding on the Pedal Force. Those posts will have a complete pictorial.







Over the next week or so you will be able to see more pictures here: The Incidental Cyclist

Here is a picture of the bike with my AC 350's on. Just a bit lighter. For those days in the hills.
