Does anyone know where I can bike up a Leader 725TR in white 53 or 55cm? Everywhere is fucking sold out...
Apr 09, 2010 @ 10:18
did you not try ebay or the leader bike store? its not any cheaper to buy a leader frameset. It doesn't include a headset or fork. You can buy a lot better for the money.

yeah a 725tr frameset (frame fork hs) is around 500. for that much you could get a used ftp, which i wish i had done.

for the record, I own a 725tr

Nope it fits me like that. For some reason people think that stems should be level or angled down b/c it looks better that way. The idea is your back is supposed to be flat and parallel to the ground.

your homie should have gotten some foot retention rather then a 300$ front wheel.
also bars pointing 2da sky.

yea. I'm 6 foot tall with the torso of someone thats supposed to be 6'3 with the legs of someone who is 5'9. That bike is huge though. Its a TT 56 which basically is like a 58 roadie. I wanted to get a specialized transition but I never a good deal on one in my size.

i would cop a fixie except wear i live it's like a fad and it would llok stupid if a bought one
Apr 14, 2010 @ 00:01
How would you look stupid? I think sometimes, it's OK to do the same as others are doing, especially if you'll enjoy what they are doing. A lot of people follow trends, it's part of life. Do what you want to do, ignore ill-mannered society. blushing

nice hed there tim. yeah the only similarity between the gt and the pipebomb is the tt slant and the triple triangle. the gt frames were mass produced alu/steel frames while the pipebombs are custom made steel?/carbon frames.
