I was browsing E-Bay this morning when I came across this AD. Seems like a deal, but I am not to familiar with the brand name. Any thoughts?

As I understand it, Sal (owner of Leader bike) is a small operation currently, whose main advertising and selling is through Ebay. Of course, I'd love to see him as a paying advertiser on RoadbikeREVIEW someday!

I have a Carbon/Aluminum mtn. hardtail frame from Leader bike that I am currently getting parts for. I hope to have all the parts by end of next week. Obviously, I haven't ridden it yet, but the finish and detail of the frame are very nice. I was surprised at the quality of the carbon/aluminum bonding, and the nice clearcoat (details usually found on frames priced much higher).

I'll post some pics here in the following few days.

Thanks Gregg. I did read the reviews posted here, but wanted a bit more feedback from the gurus on the forum.

Only $119 for any frame? I wish they made track frames! -nmTig
