Leader Frames - These frames are sold via the classifieds on this website and ebay. Okay, I know that there are some good reviews on these frames on this site... but after reading them i have i never read any comments about the weight. I went to their website and found that the Leader 715R wieghs 3.9 lbs (58 cm c-t). Correct me if i'm wrong buts that's a ton for an aluminum bike. I guess for $129, you can't complain.... The Leader 780R (aluminum with carbon seat stays) weights 3.5 lbs and sells for $300. Any comments on these frames? Will they work for the crit specialist looking for a bargin bike or are these a bit on the heavy side for aluminum?
