Andel/ Shimano.

Velo/ Easton.

Cheeeeap frame but is holding up very solid.
a 'lil on the heavy side for an aluminum frame but its super stiff for sprinting.
The tri-spoke sounds like a helicopter, pretty sweet.

inseam

Im 6.2 34 inseam. I used to ride a 57(c-c) or 60 c-t Kilo tt. With about 5.5 inches of seatpost.

Im looking to pick one of these up in 58. What is your inseam? Im kinda afraid that i will have too much seat post on a 58.

cheap and heavy? sounds like

cheap and heavy? sounds like a decent beater bike that looks like more than it really is. i wouldn't mind having one.

Just out of curiosity

How heavy is heavy? I've been scoping on the Leader V2 for a while, but I'm starting to wonder if I care enough about the extra ounces for 0+ more.

heavy?

it's prob around 5.5 pounds with frame and fork, but it rides solid.
No creaks or noises that are usually associated with alu frames,
however it calls for a 27.2 seatpost but needs a 27.4., I've been using a beer can shim on my 27.2 and it's working out fine.
The paint chips a lil easy but thats ok because the decals are excessive and powder coating is in it's future.
The rear dropouts are real tight, a little banging of the wheel with fist is usually needed but nothing to worry about.
They run small in my opinion, i've got a 58 and it fits like my 56 Winsor Hour.

more pics to come

cant really tell, but with a better photo, you can notice the downward sloping top tube.
It's prob about a half inch drop from seatpost to headset on the top tube, kinda sweet.
oh, and tight geo overall but no toe-overlap with my 170's and large toeclips, no bar spins with a 700 c though.

really helpful

I've been stressfully speculating on this frame, I'm really glad I got some first hand advice. Thanks a lot.

Do you think it's worth saving a hundred bucks and grabbing this over a Leader?

Tax

Oh, and did the customs tax you because it was shipped internationally? They say they'll label it as 'gift' or something so it's not taxed, but no guarantees?

Hope not. If I end up with a customs tax, I wish i got something else, you know?

Visp!

i've ridden a few Leader track frames and the Visp is the same if not better, straight up.
didnt get charged a customs tax(was for sure worried about that one), but i think your chances of getting this charge is unlikely if shipped to the U.S. It took exactly 10 days to get to my doorstep.
keep in mind: it runs smallll, i'm 6'-0'' and ride a 58 and it shows a lot of seatpost.

Hell yes.

Thanks a lot man. You've totally sold me on this one. It helps to have someone answer all your questions on a decision like this. Ordering a obscure frame overseas, shit made me worried. Anyway, thanks again.

Yeah, I'm shipping to the US. Goin for it!
