Leader L735TR - not a coffee bike

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)

I like the way mine rides. It's comfortable, light, responsive blah blah blah...


How did you get yours so shiny?

Was shill recently the word of the day for 1/2 the internet? I've seen it used more within the past 2 weeks on various forums than I have in my entire previous experience with the word. Is shill the new ad hominem?

Does Leader make tig welded tin foil caps? If not, maybe it's time to start.

I took the time to do this, and he does seem pretty damn weird. Also sounds like the bike is just about worth what they sell for, and are not exactly a steal. But I'm still stoked to get one. It's getting rattle-canned some crazy neon color first thing.

I have seen a couple of stock ones (decals on) that are glossy like that. Nothing special.

EDIT: Apparently he powdercoated it. link

Yeah, after I posted that, this genius sent me a obscenity-laden PM detailing how he's worked so hard to earn the respect of Portland bikers. I haven't got the slightest ****ing clue what he's talking about. He appears to have totally missed the point, which is that neither I, nor anyone else, cares about his bikes, so he can stop acting like he's some kind of black sheep because he's riding a track bike with riser bars or because you ("deathare") don't like him.

Basically, he went out of his way to prove my point by typing three paragraphs worth of vaguely self-righteous, blathering nonsense. Good stuff.

Sounds funny...you should post it.
I dont dislike the guy at all. I dont even know him, afaik. I have no idea who he is.
I dont take too much on here too serious. Some people do and hang on to it for a long time, i guess.

this forum needs gangs, and people should display their colors in their signatures.
