Customer’s Bikes

One thing we love over at ol' All-City way are photos of our customer's builds.  We're always stoked to see how someone has customized their All-City for their daily life and needs.  In this edition, we have a two Mr. Pinks, some Space pony's, two Nature Boy's, and a Big Block.

Let's get things rolling with this stunning example of the Nature Boy breed owned by Austin B.

TU91210007

And one more, this one owned by Steve S.

it sports New Sheriff hubs, a Chris King headset, SRAM track cranks, and Bontrager bars.

Now we move onto a Mr. Pink decked out for the gravel 180k D2R2 race on the East Coast owned by Mr. Sean O.

Now you know that there are few things in life I like better than seeing a Mr. Pink w/ 32c tires on it setup for any terrain ass kicking. This baby's got Clement LAS Tires (which I tried to fit into the frame w/ Velocity A23's and couldn't, so I don't know how he did it, I'm guessing 19mm wide rims), and an 11-32 out back to help out over the long course.

Now that we got the mixed terrain monster out of the way, let's check out a Grant Peterson'ed out Mr. Pink built for long rides (not that 180k isn't long) from Brian A.

This one is done old school in the Rivendell vein w/ plenty of headset spacers, a Brooks, handlebar and seat bags, a frame pump and bar cons, its also got a Salsa Bell lap bar, 105 drivetrain, and Contintental Grand Prix All Weahter tires. 

What I flipping love is that both riders (the two Pink's above) took our canvas and built themselves very different bicycles.  That's what it's all about, creating your own dream bike. And the Pink platform, while being very very much a road race machine, is able to be and do so much more than that.

Before we get into some Space Horse's I thought I'd slip in a real nice Big Block outta the streets of NYC from James.

He took a stock Big Block and turned it into a street killer.  Check out those gorgeous Profile polished cranks. 
Good lookin for sure!

And we'll finish out today, w a couple of Space Horse's.
DSCF1674
This red and white accented beauty hails from the Kissing Crows shop in Vancouver, and is owned by a gent of distinguished taste names Gus.  It's his townie bike, and it's a damn nice one.

In a similar vein, here is the first ever fixed Horse that has been submitted.

It's a 58cm Horse built up w/ the 612 crankset, 32h New Sheriff's, and a fixed 46X17 drivetrain. 
It's Michaels commuter and it hails out of the Europa shop in Cedar Fall, IA.

That's all for today. See you all soon with more hot builds.

As the snow flies here in grand rapids Michigan, all i can think about is riding my bike and building up my new big block i bought myself for Christmas. WHAT TO DO WHAT TO DO!!! im starting to think i wont ever build it because i see so many cool things! I cant seem to make up my mind! I have a brooks b17 special and a set of white velocity b43’s picked out for my silver and black frame, but from there im way to distracted by options. These are some nice rides and i appreciated you guys sharing

A Very SpooOOOooooky All Hallows Night Cross

Last night was the Second Annual All Hallows Night Cross. Last year had been rainy and cold. I think nearly everyone crashed on the way to the course. Megaphones and jerky hand-ups. All kinds of dumb costumes.
