From the factory to the starting line and vice-versa. This what has always distinguished the brand established by legendary Francesco Moser in the 1970s. The know-how learnt in professional racing helped the former Italian cyclist and his brothers to produce some of the finest racing bicycles of their time.
The Leader AX is a very strong, top class racing frame. The fully fillet brazed structure is made of double butted oversized Oria tubes and has a classic geometry with the twist of a prolonged seat tube which requires a special internally clamped seat post. This seatpost can be supplied by us.
Francesco Moser himself rode the Leader AX until he retired around 1987.
The fillet silver brazed joints form a significantly stiffer frame than TIG welds or lugs, yet they still sustain that subtle dampening which you would expect from a steel frame.
The great characteristics of the Leader AX were partly responsible for the success which Gianni Bugno had while riding it in 1990 and 1991.
In these years, the frame helped him to secure the Giro d'Italia, the Italian Championships and the World Championships.
A beautiful frameset like this, which was good enough for great champions will certainly make for a nice ride for you.
