Leader Shadow Prototype

The guys down at Leader e-mailed me this picture of their newest frame. Tyler Johnson had a big role in the design and development of the frame. It features a smaller, sleeker gusset, that is designed to be less rigid, so that it no longer has cracking issues like the V.1-2. The curved seat tube lets the rear tire sit in closer, to give the bike a tighter feel. The wishbone design for the rear triangle is a stronger design compared to the traditional two bars. Clearing up to 54c tires this frame is just about as meaty as it gets. Stay tuned for when you can pre-order  one of these beasts.

Go to Trick Track to see the discussions about the frame.
