    Save a search on Ebay. Try a Craiglist search hooked up to the metropolitan areas across the US. Or universe.

    They come up on ebay from time to time. Be vigilent. Why a MX leader? Everyone I ever talked to told me it was an overly stiff frame, and they favored the Corsa more. I never rode a MX Leader, but I do have an 01 Corsa that rides like a dream.

    MXL is a tank for sure. It's a great frame but might not be the optimal frameset for a smaller or less powerful rider. Pretty much any steel Merckx is going to be a great frame. I would not limit myself to only an MXL. My Strada OS is fantastic and it's a "low end" frame in the lineup.

    As has been said, you are going to have to scrounge all the usual sources. Ebay and various Euro versions, craigslist, Serotta classifieds, RBR classifieds, etc.

    Here's a 56 cm that looks nice and is priced accordingly. +/- one cm shouldn't make that big of a deal.

    MXL is one of the nicest bikes of all time. You won't be disappointed.
