I found some Leader frames for sale on ebay and was wondering what anybody knew about them. I am starting to look for a road frame to build up for my wife and thought $100 sounded pretty good for a frame (or $200 for carbon stays). Any details about this company/frames? Check them out: http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1809424979

Leader used to be based in Japan; they have moved to the US although I believe manufacturing is done in Asia somewhere.

Their monocoque carbon frame is supposed to be pretty good but I have heard that the build quality seems to be different depending upon who oem'ed the frame.

Leader oems to:

1. Argon 18 out of Montreal uses Leader for their monocoque carbon fiber.
2. Look
3. others

If you email them, they will tell you where you can buy a carbon frame for $695 whereas Argon will charge you $1125...
