Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?

Even cheaper, to bad it's still not in my budget.

Its on their website. $499 for a pre-painted frame only in white or black.

still too much.
449 "prepainted" + 35 shipping + 15 brake drilling = 499
399 + 99 powdercoat + 35 + 15 = 548

that's what a vigorelli costs shipped from the uk to the states with better a build quality and higher-grade steel.

and ive heard the welds on aliens arent that great.

if you're going to drop 1/2 a grand, might as well do it right.

IROs are too pricey? I would say that IROs offer some of the best bang for buck out there.

Are you kidding? For the price of one custom painted Alien frameset, you could almost buy two black Mark V's. Even the Angus is $50 cheaper than an unpainted Alien.
