Nice! I bought a Leader 725 53cm frame, I'm afraid that will be good for me? I'm 176 cm.

Nice bike sir! I have a 2011 721TR project bike as well. With I06TR carbon fork. Still saving up building my wheel and possibly getting the same crankset as yours (and color). So it will probably look like a counterpart of yours as well. Unless we put decals on our frames. Anyway, my question for you is what size is your seatpost? 27.2 right? I am concerned about it cos does it have to be a fraction of a millimeter loose? I got a Thomson 27.2 seatpost. What size of seat post clamp did you use? Did you just torque it until the seat post is steady? Let me know man. Clean bike! And the rear wheel looks good! I thought it's like the old versions where the rear wheel's not getting a bit slammed into the dropouts.

How tall are you? I was considering buying one of these and I was wondering if i should get the 51cm or the 53cm.

and is it stiff? Ive heard mixed reviews that it is and it isnt. I really wanted to buy a Aluminum track frame for going on rides on the weekend for fun, easy to maintenance and most importantly i wanted something stiff (reason why you would get aluminum over steel) but if its not stiff there is no point lol. And I dont have the money to to buy anything better because i have a handful of financial things to take care of. (just in case you suggest spending more money!)

I'm 180cm.. The leader has a long top tube, so consider that when choosing a size. They are stiff for a cheap alu frame.

I didn't weigh the bike on scales, but it was quite light (7-8kg). The leader with carbon fork rode much better than the visp too.

They are probably one of the best pedal/cleat combo's for riding fixed. I haven't had any issues with them.

The Deda tri-bar and sram crankset are really nice - I'm looking for a Deda CronoNero Lowrider myself! Looks like my bike found some kind of counterpart ;)

Love the clean build of your bike - sweet. Let me know how you like the ride. Just built my 725 finding it a bit noisy and rough - not bad just different.

The ride quality is good, the carbon fork really helps out. I rode a VISP frame/fork for a while and that was harsh.
