Franco’s Leader Kagero

Bike Check: Franco’s Kagero

Everyone went drooling when Leader and Pedal Consumption teamed up to produce an alloy track frame. Only a few of these arrived in the country, and this one, was the first! This frame has been through a lot. From pusakalyes in Manila, to trips in Cebu, to weekend rides in our home town. Surprisingly, even in a battered state, it still remains elegant as if it’s brand new! And Franco sure knows how to put parts in a frame. That beautiful Aerospoke sure makes this ride an eye candy! Gazes out! This beast will surely make your head turn!

Crazy fool had style.
