have you seen/compared it to a b43 yet? I know its 1 mm deeper but I thought the h+ wheels got bad reviews...

holy fuck. your front wheel costs more than your frameset, and ps, if your riding the streets on that thing, once its out of true, theres no way to fix it. plus how many stories have we heard about carbon forks hitting the wrong pothole and just shattering.

i mean, i bet it would race well on a velodrome... damn.

on the real, does that aerospoke at least dampen all that aluminum and carbon, you must feel every bump......


ive been seriously considering getting one of leaders frames but trying to figure out how a cro mo fork would feel on a frame with that agressive of a geometry.

im running some alien deep section wheels and they run super smooth, i have that alien crankset as well, with a dura-ace cog in the back, nice izumi track chain, gotta upgrade my bottom bracket for my new frame.

you guys have any feedback about how leader frames run in the streets of cities? quick handling is something is expect, but is it super shaky?



I ran a aerospoke on my masi coltello(aluminum frame with a cf fork) and it was fine. I can't really comment on how the bike rides differently from my dt swiss wheel set, but the aerospoke did absorb a lot of the shock of hitting uneven pavement. This assumes my new components didn't effect the ride at all.

The whole arguement about how an aerospoke is bad b/c one it goes untrue... is kindof pointless. When I rode with a front aerospoke (I bought it b/c of its durability) I bent my rear wheel countless times and of course the aerospoke never went untrue. You'd have to do something pretty stupid to get it to be untrue.

I have a few friends that ride leader bikes, most of them ride on the streets or commute from usc to downtown la, they haven't had any problems. My friend has a 737 frameset with all of the leader components and he loves it. He used to ride a bridgestone.

The only bad review about the H+ was that the rim exploded, that one time...

Think of it this way...

The guys at Macaframa are sponsored by H+son... Many of them are messengers and ride hard...
If they havent had problems, I doubt anyone on this board will have problems.

So far with the B-43s, the bad thing people have seen is dimpling on rim... Coulda been the picture, coulda been the rim.

I havent kept up, but iono if its been confirmed or not, yet...

hmmmm, warranty seems to be good as in a replacement. the documenting of them is available on their website.
b43s which are deeper than the h+son are available and in stock, in white only. if you need hit me up. ditto with h+sons since those are available now too, but about same price.

kilo tt's aren't a decent bike in the 1st place. on that budget it's a good deal. but a cheap bike somewhat in that pricerange (although pricier): iro mark v, surly steamroller, raleigh rushour, etc. if you really wanna spend only $300 on a bike, either wait for a steal on CL or buy the kilo... kilo's are bad in my opinion. mercier just sets a budget and cuts quality just to meet budget. at least, to me, they're a bad buy since i ride in nyc and need a bike that can take a beating. kilo's can't.

well, it's like buying a car. you can get a stripped down version (materials-wise), which is very cheap and will get you from A --> B well.

however, if you become concerned with a responsive bike, light materials, safety and how materials/components will affect it, the way the bike looks, experimenting with how parts suit your preference, finding good geometry or even custom geometry, good frames, how you will use it (significant component, and often geometry difference btwn someone who is a serious track rider compared to someone who is a serious street rider, although this is not always the case and the bike can/is used for both) etc. it can both be time consuming and costly.

however, at every bike's core are pretty much the same components. it's how they piece together/make the bike valuable to the rider rather than how much it actually costs. it's about being comfortable. if a cheap bike does that, then that's what it costs. if not, it can take a lot of experimenting/trial and error to find a good match. it all depends on what you prefer. just my .02, some may think i overthink it but that's how i see it.
