kareem’s cheetah pattern, sick as fuck.
“The Leader Pharaoh is the 26” specific frame which was designed by Leader Bike and Kareem Shehab of Loose Nuts Cycles. For the first time in FGFS we have teamed up with not only a sponsored rider, but a sponsored rider with a mechanical engineering degree to design a bike with us. The end result is a bike that has one of the most responsive and strongest geometries in the industry. We wish Kareem’s bike shop success and the best of luck to him in finishing his masters degree at Georgia Tech this fall. In recognition of Kareem’s contributions to the sport both on and off the bike we will be producing a “Kareem Shehab” signature model version of the Pharoah featuring designs and colors that Kareem chose.”
“The Pharaoh features our very own chainstay gusset design (International Patent Pending) which is able to clear a 2.5 tire. Additionally, the bike has the shortest wheelbase of any FGFS bike as well as some of the best toe clearance for barspins. The geometry is compact, responsive, and sure to be a hit with the 26″ fixed crowd.”The  Pharaoh 26″ frame

The Hurricane 700c/29er frame
“You know the saying: If you build it they will come. Well, we took our time and listened to our riders and for the last year we have been crafting the new Leader Pharaoh (26”) and the Leader Hurricane (700c). We built them and they have finally arrived. Matt Montoya, Michael Chacon, Nick Ramirez, Felix Dol, Matthew Spencer and Kareem Shehab have tested these bikes and they have stood the test of strength.”

Shit that can’t wait.
