Thanks. And yea, orange is a good color. But more so, even though there seems to be a lot of these MX Leaders posted here, I very much like the simplicity and integrity of this frame. I purposely tried to complete the bike with components that complimented that feeling. The handlebar was chosen not for the carbon, but because it was the only pro bend bar I could find with the exact shape I wanted. The Columbus Max (tapered) tubing with special lugs is very unique. I have a Greg Lemond mountain bike I bought 15 years ago that uses that stuff too, and it rides very nicely.

Simplicity plus the strong apperance of a serious riding classic. That's is my opinion. This Bike is so clean and has a smooth-solid-riding feel of a steel to it. If a rider truly has the legs he does not need an expensive-brand-name-show-off frame to get him going. This is the proof !! the real thing !

Excellent looking bike! I have an original orange eddy Merckx frame from the early 70's. I've always liked the original Molteni Merckx frames. I have a MX Leader Team Motorola bike in the team colors that I just love to ride. These are great riding bikes!
