I'd get the Kagero. I also have a 735 and kind of regret not getting a Kagero instead.

Also, if you're in the US, there are a few sites that have the Kagero on sale.

Out of the bikes you have listed in the title, the T1 if anything. Yet, the Bolt would be a landslide over a Leader bike.

Would not recommend the Cervelo T1 for street use. Get either the Bolt or the Kagero but spare the T1 from being ridden on the road or tarcking.

Based on the setup of your current bike, the T1 is overkill (price-wise and technologically).

papa wolf, on point as always. that's your new nickname I decided. full of wisdom and knowledge.

anyways, the bolt is a better choice of the three. much better quality than the kagero IMO. better bang for your buck. and it's more street friendly. riding a T1 in the street is not only overkill, but just downright wrong.

Lol. I think old curmudgeon is a more apt term. ; )

Regardless of how I feel about Cinelli, I'd def'ly aim for the Bolt over the others. I still have a place in my heart for Super Pistas tho (it might be the street track project after I built up a road bike).

Ah ah ah nicknames are given not chosen, not to mention the t1 might/will draw some unwanted attention.
The bolt seems like a better choice but, the kangaroo isn't bad either.

I'm not going to get too technical because I'll probably get schooled lol, but I love my Kagero and recommend it. It's really going to be a matter of personal preference, but I think they're all nice frames. You can get a new Kagero for $639 now, which is probably the most pocket friendly of the three.

Get a cervelo t1 and ride that motherfvcker on the street. Best feeling ever when your balls get numb. Stiff as fvck to run down pedestrians and some cyclists. And yet durable enough to get chips and dents from little pebbles. So fvck the rest of the bikes and ride a T1. Fvck yeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaahhhh

If you really ride on velodrome, that T1 is just for you. If you just ride on streets, both Kagero and Bolt are just fine. Super Pista 2012 and Dodici Special are also good choice.

get the one you really like! who cares if you ride the cervelo on the street! no ones stopping you!

Leader or the Cinelli,
Leave the Cervelo for the velodrome.
But hey if you have the cash to burn, it's up to you.

Seriously, if we're talking street cred, why are we limiting ourselves. Get a Look 596 and skid that thing everywhere. Hell, put on some Aerospokes because that makes sense, right?

I mean, everyone knows that buying a fancy track frame makes you a stronger rider, right? I'm sure that wearing some cadence jeans and the "right" sneakers completes the look.
