46/18 currently. dia compe keirin brake and mount.

great ride, but brazing work looks a little off; the seat tube area brazing melted tube and was filled in a little with brazing material. i tried to show a picture of this and the other brazing work. bike shop said that years down the line it could cause problems. keep in mind with these taiwan frames that you get what you pay for, but it really is a fun ride.

No way a tube melted...

Brazing temperatures are not nearly high enough to melt tubing.

how do u like those

how do u like those wheels?
are the better than h plus's
wats ur input

I really like this setup!!

How are the alien track frames? I like the lug work, and rear dropouts are neat as well! Very nice bike!!

hmmm

I would check out other Aliens posted on this site. the "dropouts" (they're actually called track ends) are really inconsistent on these frames. But like he says, not bad if you're ok getting what you pay for.

what kind of brake mount is that ? i cant find a brake that will work with my motobecanes fork spacing

Bravo!

I think you did a great job with this build! I completely disagree with the comment about the brake mount. The brake mounted the way it is creates a very coherent look with the rest of the bike. NIce job!

How do you like this frame so far? I've been considering getting one, but have been a bit iffy? I understand it's not the most quality built frame, but do you find it to be worth it's price tag?

i thought about clear

i thought about clear coating mine but i didn't like the exposed braze work, kinda glad i didn't. yours looks legit however. other than the seat stay area of the bike the geo makes this ride fun as hell

Pretty stupid looking

Pretty stupid looking brake.

The bike would look so much better if you would just drill the fork & get rid of that stupid peace.

Bike looks wonderful though

Brake holes are ugly

When there is nothing in them.
