The First Alien Fixed Gear Build. Finally.

Some time ago I asked about where are all the bikes built from the Alien frames. The reason being that Alien is new company, and lots of people have been really exited about them, and their first run of frames being quite a bit delayed. 

Well, now I can answer my own question. The bike above could be the first Alien frameset built up by someone who actually bought it. You can argue about the colors etc. of that build but the frame itself looks pretty damn good and tight, just like it should. 

Fuck all waterbottle bosses, mudguard eyelets and 'comfortable street fixed (= boring slack road) geometry'. Hooray for super twitchy steering, plenty of toe-overlap & cramped/compact riding position!
