    Posted By: lickedwickedthe cut outs don' t wrap around the side of the wheels as i expected. even with 650 rear. i thought a wheel cut out should.

    actually this guy is right. don't listen to me, i don't know what i'm talking about. even though i have the frame. it's a crap bike just like this guy says and

    Posted By: deermatt+1 . From what I hear, their QC is a notch below leader

    def wanna know how this is treating you because im torn if i should order or not. btw what model did you get? the newest one?
  9.  
    On the first ride today the bike is really stiff and responsive. The guy at my LBS was impressed with the fillings inside the frame. So far I am pretty happy with how this bike came out, only janky part was that a 27.2 seatpost does not fit snug in the frame so I put a shim and works fine.

    And yes this is the newest model so far

    Thanks! the frame really is great for what it cost stiff and handles great. Only problem was not being able to use a 27.2 seatpost without some sort of shim.

    So... is this the exact same frame that leader orders? Just wondering because seat tube clamping issues arent all that common on new bikes.
  12.  
    Well like last person said about clamping tight without the seatpost I tried that and it did not work so there was always that little room when its installed

    Let me know what you guys think
  14.  
    it's not the same since the Leader 725's track ends narrow down to a corner.
