Leeson 609 resurrection

8 posts in this topic

finally got round to getting this frame repaired and re built. 

A new drive side chainstay fitted, rear disc mount and stripped the paint job off. 

Going to have some cable guides fitted in the near future. 

Lighter than my Fourplay it’s replaced and super short, very happy with it. Running 16/14 ratio and feels a little too easy so have ordered a 13t cog. 

Spec : 

Leeson 609 - later longer version 

inspired forks 

inspired arcade bars - hope 90x25 stem 

Hope headset 

hope m4 brakes 

middleburn rs7 with trials superbash 

Izumi super tough track chain

shimano xt large pedals 

chris king SS ISO rear ISO front hubs on Halo T2 rims 36h 

Schwalbe table top tyres 

Sell Italia SLR Carbon Ti saddle - unbranded Carbon seat post 

Hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I do!

I recognise that frame but can't think for the life of me who it originally belonged to!

Looks like a fun toy :)

Nice! I have a 609 I picked up that is in the middle of a refurb, just need to do a bit of brazing and then get it coated.

Stunning frame and build! 

I prefer chunkier more forgiving tires at lower pressures. Those look fast rolling!

Still riding like chain slap don’t mean no thang!
