i’ve been slowly acquiring parts for my leader frame. i bought a crankset and chain off of my friend matt anderson. origin 8. had a headset, bottom bracket, and fork installed yesterday. so, it’s coming along nicely. now, i just need to get some wheels, seatpost, stem, bars, and straps. fun fun.

i went to joe’s cycles today and put a leader 725tr on layaway! this is going to be so goddamned awesome. i can’t wait to get this puppy home and start putting parts on it. i ran the trek on craigslist yesterday and have already had a few people contact me about it.
i’m still on the fence about going fixed. part of me wants to say it’s a fad and to just stick with freewheel and brakes. but the fixed-gear community seems to have an awfully good time with their bikes lol.
eric woods contacted me today via facebook about maybe purchasing my bike. i’m thinking this would be a good move, considering it would be a good size for him. i’m still not sure what to charge him. it’s a great frame. nice wheels/tires. just paid to do a single-speed conversion on it. we’ll see how it goes.
i know i know, i was super jazzed on the trek when i first got it. don’t get me wrong, it is a SWEET ride. but the truth is, the frame is just too damn small. i’m 6’2”. i need at least a 58cm frame. that trek is 48cm, MAYBE 50. it is just too damned uncomfortable to ride. i hit downtown with josh baskerville and dave tonight and was pretty cramped the whole time. it sucked, for sure. i think the plan is just to put some stuff on layaway at joe’s in fountain square and pay it off as i go. that should do me just fine. nice little single speed. NOT a fixie. although, i’m thinking about it…
