Im thinking of ordering this bike. what do you guys think about the color. Is red better or is this green with silver bottom cool.

In case you want want to know who makes this it is a Leader LD-785R. Frame is tripple butted with carbon seat and chain stays. Built up the weight is only 15.7lbs.

I only want to see what you guys think of the color.

Thank you for your help.

I'm not much of a fan of the green to silver paintjob. If it was done properly I think it could look good but then again the green is kinda not the nicest color either.

I'd go for the red. Personal preference, I guess.

Built weight is 15.7 lbs? Does that include the frame?? Why spend thousands bringing a bike down in weight when the frame is only worth a few hundred? 15.7... yeah right.

Go shocking red on the frame; keep the rest of the components subdued in a dark color to balance off the carbon seat stays - black bar tape, an unpainted, natural weave carbon fork, black seatpost & stem. Finish off with bright silver spokes, black rims and black or silver hubs. It's gonna look fast standing still. The silver spokes should give it a lighter look; black spokes would be mean and nasty.

You guys are all awsome!

Thank you very much for your help. I will order the LD-785R RED bike.

To they guy that doubts the bike is under 15.7lbs. I would never consider anything other than a leader. Yes the Leader frame only cost me $499, but it is well worth every penny. Leader frame only weighs 2.5lbs. NO JOKE. If you don't beleive me then check out their web sight

P.S. I will go for the silver spokes

And after you ride your LEADER bike, be sure to try an ice cold BUDWEISER beer. I find that it is cool, crisp, and beechwood aged. I always demand BUDWEISER, where ever I go. Don't believe me, go try a BUDWEISER today.

looks like it was spray painted by the high school shop class to match the instructor's duck blind for the hunting season.
Kinda looks like nasal discharge during a sinus infection.look271
