It's the Leader S803 steel fork. Same exact fork as the Madison/Godzilla.

You can't see it in any of the pics but there are decals on the frame (under the clear coat). They are so light, you really have to look to see them. You can make them out on City Hype's black one at the top of this page. It's pretty cool looking, actually.

Psht. It's technically already rideable. Who cares about handlebars? Let's go! Action shots!

Very quality made fork, you have to see Leader stuff in real life to appreciate their beauty.

ive seen 3 leaders : 721, 725 i are not impress - handmade track frame is nice, especially with a silver chris king headset.

might be getting a soma rush though, i still feel like its worth more than the leader.

I've seen both the 725 and 722 and they were of quality, especially the 722. Hand made track frame is nice, but also expensive as ****, just like a Chris King headset.

I'm poor and I'm content with a 722 or a Soma Rush or a Pake track.

Yes. The only difference is that the version found on the Maddy has fender eyelets on the dropouts.

I'm blown away by the overall quality of this frame. The tubing and welds are super nice and those drop outs are sexy as all hell. The new 725s are pretty impressive as well.

leader's dropouts look like maxways kinda.. how about there?

im a sucker for nice, long dropouts, like the old steel aliens, kazanes, the new rushes, the steel leaders, some maxways, and the godzillas are all nice.

Nobody is that perfect. I'd say there's a good chance she's an alien spy.

Don't dig too deep.

She's not much of a cook, though. I guess a guy can't have it all.....

Let's make a girlfriend/wife thread. But probably not. Ha.

How tall is Angie?

Anika is 5'2" but her bike looks significantly smaller than Angie's. The seat height is correct and everything. Shweird.

She's got pretty long legs for her height. Leaders run pretty small and the 51 fits her really well. The saddle was raised up quite a bit in that last pic because it had just come off the stand but here's how it looks now that she's got it all set up:



Such a rad little bike!

It looks like a boss. Is that a different stem? What about the other frame?

She ended up buying a 70mm VO stem (which is pretty funny 'cause I sold you my old one for Ani's bike).

Is it me or do the Leader 722s look a lot like the continuum track frames

That Continuum fork doesn't have those details on the fork crown.



EDIT:Comprehension problem, I thought you said fork...

Those Continuum looks like it's made of aluminium, whereas the 722s are steel.
