Over the years Alex has shown us his creativity through both his bike riding and his time off the bike with art, yoga, exercise, cooking and 'listening to bulk music'. Having a strong connection to street art Alex has always shown interest and passion when making his bikes just the way he likes them, COLOURFUL. Since we have all been locked down with the current social situation that's been thrust upon us, Alex has been getting creative with his 2020 Colony Sweettooth build. Alex wanted to give everyone a run-through on how he adds to his bike after he has it rolling perfect.
