Sick Build. Sorry it got

Sick Build. Sorry it got stolen. If it were mine i would be devestated. Ever get tired of answering where you got those hubs?

Thanks man, It was a hard

Thanks man, It was a hard blow that spring morning in 2010 when it was gone. A lot have happened since and I now ride a carbon Dolan so it’s okay now, but some nights when I’m riding home I think about what I would do if I ever saw the frame again ;) Haha the black dura ace hubs has almost become legend, the bike was stolen with a ellipse wheelset on it, so the dura ace hubs still ride the streets of Copenhagen when the sun is out.

YO

This build is very well executed, congrats.

Would you mind me asking how tall you are and what your inseam is? Thinking about getting myself a Track Champ and can't find the stand over height anywhere....

Thanks Nathan. My inseam is

Thanks Nathan. My inseam is 80cm and I’m 185 without shoes. The Track Champ fits small, and I should have gotten a 58 or maybe even a 60. I ride a 58 Pre Cursa 58 right now and it fits nicely. A bit of advice I would buy the wing pista full carbon fork from Alpina instead of the normal fork it comes with.

dude

murdered out. how did you get the black DA hubs?

I bought them of a Korean

I bought them of a Korean guy on EBay. According to him only a couple pairs exists…

nice

loving this bike, the blacked out DA hubs are hot, DA to h+son ftw!

Thanks man, it’s always

Thanks man, it’s always nice when someone likes what you have put together.
Unfortunately this bike got stolen a couple of months ago. Luckily it had my mavic ellipse wheel set on a not my one of a kind dura ace wheel set.

Sugino 75 BB Spindle Doesn't Fit on Leader 725's????

I just bought a 2010 Leader 725, and took it to a certain shop in D.C. so they could install my Sugino 75s on it for me. I'm running the regular 75 unsealed BB. The shop is saying that my spindle is too short. Ive done searches online, and I cant find anyone whose had this problem. I called Leader, and they have 5 people working there running the same setup with no issues. Do you think this problem is really with my bike, or with the people working on it?

I have pm'ed you.

Thanks man

Thanks man

I'm glad to see you got the 105's!

How are you liking them?

I'm so jealous of those dura ace hubs!

Hey. I really like the 105's

Hey. I really like the 105's and it was cool that I was able to get them in black. It took me a little time to get the clamps on the shoes just right, but besides that they are really nice. The Dura-ace hubs was a lucky found on Ebay, I haven't seen any other rides with them.

Awesome

Yeah the cleats were a bit of a hassle. But when you need to replace them, it will be much easier because the plastic beneath the cleat will be darker than the rest of the sole and you can just line it up.
I'm glad you are enjoying them.

Like I said, insanely jealous. They're gorgeous.
I've seen pictures of them before by themselves, but never a picture of them laced to a wheel.

They look better in real

They look better in real life. Are you still going for the Ellipse for your D2 pista?

I wish I could see them sometime.

I'm probably going to end up with the ellipse.
I was considering getting some dura ace hubs laced to ceramic open pros, but the mavics just seem like a better option for me. They are stronger, less expensive, and the hubs are sealed.

I have the Ellipse as spare

I have the Ellipse as spare wheels. And they are really nice, they have some issuse, but they are strong and look nice when you get the decals off.

What issues

have you had???

Thanks

Thanks for the kind words

Thanks for the kind words guys. It’s a riot to ride, the power transfer is unbelievable fast :)

power transfer

I suggest switching to clipless pedals if you want to improve your power transfer even more.

I started running shimano 105 pedals about seven months ago and the difference is incredible.
Once you get used to it, I don't think would ever want to go back to clips and straps on a nice bike again. It's awesome.

Cool. I'm buying a pair of

Cool. I'm buying a pair of 105, when the next paycheck gets in.

good plan

Let me know what you think of it!

I will. What model of shoe

I will. What model of shoe are you running with yours? I was thinking about a pair of road shoes with spd clamps, because I’m mostly using this bike for long rides.

I have a pair of

specialized road comps(the 09 model was synthetic leather) with the regular 3 hole road drilling.
It is compatible with shimano spd-sl cleats which will work with shimano road pedals.

Awesome!

Looks like fun.

Congrats on a bad ass build.

Looks like pure evil.
