Our New Vertical Dropouts

As we move into geared bikes it only made sense to continue with our tradition of creating our own signature dropouts.

For most companies these are unnecessary expenses but we feel that it's these frame details that make an All-City standout from the crowd and give our bikes their character and archival quality.  When you're looking at a vintage frameset and see that Campagnolo dropout you know you're looking at a quality piece.  It's our love for these sorts of bike geek moments that leads us to making the investment in our own stainless steel forgings. 





These will be used on our Mr. Pink and a soon to be unveiled project that we've been working on.

Please let this project be a steel disc-equipped cross bike. And not some monster-cross thing, but a legit cross bike I can put a 3T or ENVE carbon fork on and race.

They look great.  Would be nice to see on an AC stainless frame…

It sure would be nice if those were going to go on a dedicated randonneuring frame with a low-trail fork. I doubt that’s where they’re headed though…

When will we know?! Frostbike?...

Please give this frame PF30 or BB30 and disc tabs so I can run it with an eccentric PF30/BB30 adapter and for disc SSCX!

Jeff’s Western Odyssey

I headed out to Colorado a week ahead of NACCC's to meet up with my good friend Josh Culbertson of Avery County Cycles to do some camping and mountain biking in the Fruita and Moab area. Obviously the love of track, cross, and road bikes runs deep, but I was brought up a mountain biker in the backwoods of Northern Wisconsin. It was my first love, and the opportunity to trod the holy ground of the mtb mecca that is Moab was way too alluring to pass up.
