All City Cycles is known for making sweet fixed gear freestyle bikes. As of late however, they have been putting out more drop bar bikes like their sing speed cyclocross bike the Nature Boy, and the Mr. Pink road bike. At Interbike this year, they debuted their newest steed, the Space Horse. This touring style bike is in line with others such as a Surly Long Haul Trucker, but has a shorter wheel base and a trick or two up its sleeve.
Head on over to the other side for all the details on both this and the Mr. Pink.
Anna over at All City designed one of the coolest things I saw during the entire show. She put a lawyer tab on the rear drive side dropout! (correction: the lawyer tab is on both sides) No more futzing with the rear wheel position when using their horizontal drop out. It is designed to slam the wheel all the way forward, and the tab will hold it in place while you tighten things up. The frame is optimized so that shifting performance is best with the wheel in this position. Simplifying rear wheel installation makes me happy.
The frame is done up in the standard 4130 CroMo and is ED coated from the factory. All City used internal cable routing for a nice clean look.
With eyelets for anything you would want to mount, and room for fat tires, the Space Horse is ready to take you on a serious adventure.
Pricing is set at $1350 for a complete build using mostly Tiagra, or $550 for the frameset.
Also on display was the lovely Mr. Pink. This is All City’s go fast road bike that is a step up from your standard 4130 CroMo frame. Mr. Pink is made from Columbus Zona tubing and is the type of bike that should last you a life time. To aid in longevity, the frame is ED coated for you, so you don’t have to mess around with frame saver yourself.
Mr. Pink isn’t exactly new this year, but as a refresher it includes hidden fender eyelets, clearance for 32c tires (28c with fenders), internal cable routing, and uses a PF30 BB.
All City was showing off the complete 105 build, as well as the pricing. The Zona frameset will run you $790, with the complete build using 105, FSA cranks, and Ritchey cockpit coming in at $1850. I wasn’t able to weight Mr. Pink, but I was informed that the complete build should come in just over 20 pounds.
Full details are a little light over at their website, but Jeff advised it is being reworked and that we should see a new site very soon.
