If you dont want it to CRACK then it will have to be the Saracen all the way.

They ride very well too

Based purely on looks, the Nishiki Alien ACX, the one with the bolt on chromed steel rear triangle and the aluminium front triangle. I've no idea how they ride or whether they crack and fall to pieces, but they look great.

CRACK!

Especially head tubes - wrong choice of aluminium

Which is a shame.

I like my Alien SP but have to agree with Xerxes that the ACX is a better looker. I do like a bit of Funk though :D .
