I know, it's a Leader, but it's good enough for me.
Planning on getting some Stratos400 (if anybody knows where I can get them).
**Can I get some recommendations for front/ rear tires? I find the ultra sport kinda draggy.

**UPDATES**
- Changed to Syntace Stratos bars and Dimension stem, Selle Italia Flite Carbonio saddle, and Continental GP4000S tires.
- Looking at getting a new chain, my 710SL has stretched a tiny bit, but lasted for about 8 months good. Gonna try the Izumi Eco Track, heard its economical and tough.
- Haven't had the time to trim off my steerer tube, till today.

Vittoria Rubino (Pro). I use them as much as possible. At 170 lbs I can get 145psi in them and they are stiff as rocks.

I also use Gatorskins from time to time because they are sexy.

I imagine my 2011 725 to

I imagine my 2011 725 to look similar to this haha

re. handlebars: search

re. handlebars: search "syntace" at amazon.com

search fail

hey man I tried but the results weren't stratos400. I've searched before but maybe it's my searching skills or these bars are hard to get.

I managed to search some, but they are not available for delivery to my country.

handlebars search

hey thanks i will try it :)

For a Leader... it's not

For a Leader... it's not built up too shabby. Surely nice wheels, fork, cranks, etc.

Pedals are okay... but some quality cages and straps for sure. I suggest Soma QuadGate with some Toshi double straps.

quality cages and toshi straps

i'll wait till the current one breaks, which i think won't be likely. i like the red toshi's though but kinda pricey, even if i could afford the other parts

why would you go all out and

why would you go all out and then skimp on pedals?

what would u suggest?

what would u suggest?

Whats wrong with MKS Custom

Whats wrong with MKS Custom Neuvo? Those straps and clips can do better. Deff can swap those parts to a nicer frame

For real I had custom

For real I had custom nuevo's they are great pedals and top mks line

swapping to a nicer frame

yeah i knew this was coming, i'm just gonna stick to this frame till something happens to it

I mean yeah its a cool ride

I mean yeah its a cool ride but those parts on a nice midrange frame will be awesome I can imagine Dolan Pre Cursa

dolan

yeah! Haha would certainly consider that in the future :)

This build initially was supposed to be built on low budget. So I started with a cheap leader from ebay, but as time goes on, I tot it would make sense to just upgrade once with better parts.
