Mr Pink

Mr Pink


Our flagship road race bike was designed to carry you as quickly and efficiently as possible over any road surface. From pot-hole-filled city streets, to long road rides in the country, to gravel centuries, this bike does it all with the style and smoothness that can only come from high-end steel.

Geometry-wise, it's a classic racer, but we've made tweaks to the equation that remove the limitations associated with your average road bike. It has clearance for 32c tires (28's w/fenders) for mixed-terrain riding, hidden fender mounts for foul-weather days and an ED coating for rust prevention and longevity. The perennial favorite Columbus Zona tubeset is light weight and provides a stiff, yet comfortable ride.

Frame updates for 2016 include a change to a traditional English bottom bracket shell, and updated dropouts with a replaceable derailleur hanger (easily available from Wheels Manufacturing, it's a 49).

The Mr. Pink sports all of our classic steel touches: a custom head badge, All-City signature dropouts, a signature brazed-on seat collar, internal top tube cable routing for the rear brake, a pump peg and reinforcement stars on the bottle bosses. These are the signifiers of quality that inform, at a glance, that this is a high-end, hand-crafted machine.

The complete bike is decked out with SRAM's excellent Rival 22 group, a Salsa bar and stem, tubeless ready DT Swiss wheels, FSA post, and Clement tires.

This is the frame that won the 2013 Gravel World Championships and has been campaigned in all manner of crits, road races, fondos and gravel events. Standout in a world of alloy and carbon, ride one for yourself and feel how good a steel bike can get.

Columbus Zona Tubing

After spending years spent lusting over Italian tubed road bikes, we decided to build one of our own. Columbus’ Zona tubeset offered an unbeatable combination of suppleness, lightweight, and stiffness.

E.D. Coating

In Electrophoretic Deposition, or E.D., coating the frame or fork is placed in a paint bath where an electric charge is applied. This fuses a thin layer of black satin coating to the tubes inside and out. This coating acts as both a rust preventative inside and a primer out.

Custom Details

We’re way into the handbuilt touches when it comes to our frames. Which is why you’ll find things like internal cable routing, custom dropouts, lugged crown forks, reinforcements on the bottle bosses, hidden fender mounts, etc on our framesets.
