The All-City Junkyard Dog, or JYD isn’t an absolute staple bike in your stable, but it sure looks fun.
Kyle doesn’t wear black t-shirts, but he sure knows how to build up a black bike, with all the right details, especially those Fairweather Nitto Bullmoose bars. Check out a few more teasers to his All City Nature Boy Zona at Tracko!
The JYD frame. The ultimate around town, take the bum trail to your favorite bar, street or dirt ready shred sled. It’s simple, fun and yep, singlespeed.
Jeff from All-City has been talking about doing this frameset for some time now. He wanted to call it the “Junkyard Dog”, but went with JYD instead.
Segmented fork, threaded BB and yes, canti studs, clearances for a monster 29′r tire, gussets, fender mounts, you name it, the JYD is ready for it… all for $550 frameset.

Don’t miss out on this ride. It’s gonna be a lot of fun. I wish there was some way I could make it.
Perhaps you’ve heard of the Koochella track team? Well, All-City’s engineer Anna Schwinn spoke about them a little while ago on the AC Blog. Turns out, this Thursday (tomorrow) is the team debut at the NSC Velodrome.
Check out that kit and bike!

Male models have it tough. People throw a new kit on you, put a bike under your legs, and send you flying down a fire road. Sean from Team Dream has been known to turn a trick for money once and a while, although sometimes the trick turns him. At least I think that’s what happened on this All-City kit photoshoot gone bad.

Thanks for sharing, Jeff. Rubber side up!
All-City just posted an update to their blog about the Macho King Disc Limited Edition, Macho King Disc and the Nature Boy Disc. Included in this update is pricing, weight and availability. If you want one of these bikes, now’s a good time to head over to All-City’s Blog to read the full update.

With the biggest and best race of the year coming this weekend, the biggest and best artist just got done signing each poster. Hey Geoff! The Mudfoot Dirty Hundo is this Saturday in Los Angeles and Sunday, after your legs are ripped off, All-City, Golden Saddle Cyclery and mother nature are going to throw a sunset ride.
Posters and t-shirts will be available at the Dirty Hundo start and whatever is left over will be sold online.
From snowy Minneapolis to sunny SoCal…
What better place to shoot this bike in Los Angeles than a spot that Kyle calls “Little Big Sur”. In actuality, it’s near the top of Griffith Park, just 30 minutes and 1,000′ in elevation gain from Golden Saddle Cyclery. This is the shop’s official sunset beer spot.
Just about every time we ride up, Kyle’s been on his All-City Space Horse. We’ll poach the horse trails as the sun is setting, rather than take the road and climb in half the time (they’re freaking steep). Usually, I’m huffing, out of the saddle on a cross bike, but Kyle kicks it into his triple and spins on up.
This bike is setup for the kind of rides Kyle enjoys: fully-loaded dirt S24 camping trips in the Angeles National Forest. He’s taken it up Mt. Lowe in the middle of the night, down a dirt track off the backside of Gleason and all over the San Gabriel Mountains. The build specs tell the tale:
Surly’s do-all Rack up front holds his E3 lamp, powered by a SON hub. Sitting on top is the JANDD Briar beer cooler rack bag (in stock at GSC). His shifting relies on Retroshift and Shimano. PAUL Minimotos provide the stopping power. A well-used Selle Anatomica saddle has seen its share of spills and thrills and those Bruce Gordon Rock n Road tires keep his rear wheel roostin’ turns.
This is probably one of the nicest Space Horse builds I’ve seen! I love the brown Chris King NoThreadset too. See more in the Gallery and remember, if you’re in LA and want a similar build, the guys at Golden Saddle Cyclery can make it happen!
