80kmh on a track bike is far from easy and even more so without anyone up front cutting the wind. Leader’s Brian Safa recently took on the challenge descending into Tlayacapan near his current locale in central Mexico. Looks like some rad scenery all anround and I couldn’t agree more with his reasons for picking the spot. Keep up with the cool stuff he does down south over on his bloggy


If you’re unfamiliar with Mr. Safa peep this interview on Jambi-Jambi!

Leader Bikes: The Cure.

Posted by: kris

It’s awesome when brands step up tohelp raise funds for a noble cause like cancer research. Even better is that Leader Bike‘s founder Sal kicked pancreatic cancer’s ass and now has the chance to help support the research that kept him in the game. The Cure is here and looks rad with it’s curved toptube and tight track geo not to mention a portion of the proceeds go to keep the research rollin’. More info here…look for these this fall!

Interested to see how it looks after a few months of working on it ’cause for a 4 year frame this thing is still sparkly…

Posted by: kris

Working in the bike industry isn’t all lunch break rides and tradeshows. It looks something more like this…except maybe minus the conference calls on the rollers. A good one from the one and only Matt Lingo¬†and the dudes at Leader!

You can do a lot on a bike be it towing a broken down truck or hitting a kicker into a tree to save a kitten. All in a days work for Mike Chacon and Erin in the final version of Leader and Vans Japan collabo flick. A good set of shots from around L.A. with a bit of humor mixed in.
