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)

Leader Love!

~Excuse the bar - saddle ratio..... the rider has a special condition, it's called being ignorant.

Man, at least try to use the cutout so it doesn't look so useless.

Even riding on the tops would hurt my back =/

I know there has to be some good builds of the new frame out there but everyone seems to be doing it wrong o_O

I don't think that bike belongs to anyone here.

But I'm pretty sure plenty people here use gp4ks

Jandro is actually who came to mind.

also, those aren't gp4ks on the heritage 722. That's my bad.

Been a little while since posting, suuuper busy. Figured I'd start back up here... Riding around with these bars for a while, I've grown very fond of them. New front tooobie tomorrow; Get some outdoor real stuff soon, just thought I'd share.



**P.S. in response to the posted heritage leader 722... Along with stupid saddle->bar drop... wheels don't belong on that frame. I feel sorry for Zipp, they have unknowingly sponsored the hipster.

Come on, man. This thread was intended for those of us who actually own Leaders to post and discuss our actual bikes.

Yes, we all know there are a lot of stupid Leader builds in the world - just like there are a lot of bad Cinelli, Pista Concept, etc builds out there - but this isn't the place for any of them.

I actually think that bike looks halfway decent. Maybe would have been better to get Aerospokes without machines brake surfaces, but it's still pretty rad to me.

I see you are now carrying the Fyxation Session and they come in pink. You should put them on your Kagero and report on how they work out.

You have me all wrong; I just put this here on the notion that it was a well put together bike IMO once you get past its minor flaws & the scrutiny, demands, and expectations of SS/FG... You have to be honest, it does look very appealing even with the notorious wheels of infamy once you look past those and it is very close to meeting the SS/FG standards of acceptance. You know it; you've seen the other end of the wide spectrum in the jackass thread. I only said "I'll leave this here" because I was not sure of how you guys will respond to it.

Leuky, I'm the one who requested that Scrod start this thread and if you'll read the OP it is intended to be a place for those of us who own Leaders to post and discuss our bikes. So, like Scrod said, your post does not belong here. Capice ?
