never understood the draw people have to super deep rims. imo a box rim or shallower v rim that's properly built up looks/performs way better than a b43/h+/etc.

Nice bikes alex, I have thought too many a time about building a second bike, but then I realize I would have the other bike being unused the time I'm using one or vice versa.

thanks for the help. And yeah I thought the same thing but I use one for beating around on and not being afraid to crash or jump off of quick. While my trek on the other hand is used for more leisure rides and going fast with my friends.

If you search through Craiglist, you'll easily find a nice completed leader for $700 or maybe under.

Why do people hate leader so much? Yeah you can get better for the price, but it's not like they're complete trash, it's still a decent bike and if you're not gonna beat the shit out of it, it'll be fine

they have crappy geometry and they aren't very well built. plus they aren't any cheaper than any other bike you could build up for a comparable price.

my buddies kilo tt build up cost more than my masi coltello build up and mine is leaps and bounds nicer than his.

Why would you buy a cheap aluminum bike to ride on the street? The only people buy it is because it is cheap and has big tubing to put steezy stickers on. The only practical use of a leader is for some one who wants a strictly track bike, but isnt a real racer, so doesnt want to buy an expensive aluminum frame. but that is not what they are ever used for

That's odd. Many of my friends who are riders feel that way, not sure why though. But I do have to agree with you that deep v's do perform much better as they are lighter, but like the other guys said, b43's and h+ son's look much better depending on the bike. If it's a leader, definitely b43s, if it's a IRO, conversion, mercier, windsor, anything similar, then definitely deep v's.

For the rear b43, it's double butted spokes laced to a fixed/fixed Phil hub.
Mainly trying to trade that out for a lower profile rim laced to a double fixed Phil as well.

But make an offer for that.

For the SPIN...

$300. Includes a new tube and a like new Vittoria Rubino.

+ shipping, of course.
