After hiding under embargo for months, the Electric Queen is ready for her debut. At first glance the Electric Queen is classic All-City. Look a little closer though and you’ll see that the Electric Queen is All-City’s first modern mountain bike with just enough tech to keep it current yet simple and durable.
There’s a lot to take in on the Electric Queen, but it’s almost impossible to look anywhere but the rad fade with splatter paint job first. According to Brand Manager Jeff Frane, All-City has been trying to do splatter paint in Taiwan for years, but they couldn’t find a paint supplier that was willing to do it right. As a result, we were told that each bike has a unique splatter pattern and only 190 pieces will be made for this run. Those 190 bikes will also include a color matched RockShox Reba RL 120mm suspension fork with Boost spacing.
The frame itself is made from 612 Select Chromoly steel with a double butted front triangle and the typical All-City attention to detail – including ED coating (electrophoretic deposition) which protects the frame from rusting. Frame specs include Boost 148 rear spacing with a 12mm thru axle, replaceable derailleur hanger, 73mm BSA threaded bottom bracket, 30.9 seat tube with stealth dropper routing (though a dropper is not included in the build), and a 44mm head tube for use with tapered steerers. Shipped with WTB Ranger 27.5 x 3.0″ tires, the frame also has room for 29 x 2.35″ tires.
Stock complete bikes will include a SRAM GX 1×11 drivetrain with a 32t chainring and 11-42t Sunrace cassette. SRAM Level hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm rotors help out with the sweet skids.
The model shown at Saddle Drive earlier this year came in at 31.68lbs for a large, though it was built with a dropper post which is not part of the complete spec.
Like the entertaining video above portrays, the Electric Queen is all about having a good time on a mountain bike. Whether that’s a trail bike, an urban adventure rig, or a bikepacking platform is up to you.
Complete builds arrive at dealers in January (though some dealers should have them as of today) and will sell for $2,299 while the frame only runs $750, or $1250 for the frameset.
