All-City Updates Space Horse and Gorilla Monsoon with GRX Builds

For this year’s model launches, All-City took their two most popular off-road bikes and laced them with Shimano GRX, a few hardware updates like thru-axles, and new paint jobs. The Space Horse GRX ($2,099) comes with Teravail Rampart gumwall tires, a new metallic pink paint job with burgundy chevrons, while the Gorilla Monsoon GRX ($2499) has a champagne gold to cream ombré fade, with big meaty WTB Riddler, 27.5 x 2.4″ tires. Both of these bikes are looking their best ever and if GRX is too rich for your blood, they also come specced with Apex (GM) or Tiagra (SH).

All-City Renames Two ‘Cross Staples: Nature Cross Geared and Singlespeed

In an effort to make their lineup feel more inclusive, All-City has made the move to rename their “Nature Boy” racing frames to “Nature Cross”. These two models will replace the Macho King A.C.E. and Nature Boy bikes. Both of these “new” models feature All-City’s proprietary air-hardened, custom-extruded A.C.E. steel tubing that we developed specifically for riding and racing.

With new paint designs, these stylish machines are rolling on one of the lightest steel production frames in the world and can be used for more than just racing laps. The Nature Cross Singlespeed comes in a blue fade, while the Nature Cross Geared comes in a red, white, and blue splatter fade.

Golden Saddle Rides: Kyle’s Flat Bar Nature Boy A.C.E. SSCX

The Nature Boy first launched in 2010 as a singlespeed ‘cross machine. Its popularity grew quickly due to it being All-City’s first off-road bike. This was pre-Macho King, pre-Spacehorse, and way before the Electric Queen. Back then, in 2010, All-City was primarily in the game of making urban bikes.

This year marked a big change for the Nature Boy, launching the A.C.E. model with a few updates.

Good Coffee, Clean Bathrooms: Being a Breezer for Two Weeks at Angry Catfish in Minneapolis

FOREWORD: Back in May and into June, I had the pleasure of helping the crew at Angry Catfish for a couple of weeks as their summer season began to pick up. The following is a series of entries from a journal I kept during my time there. My hope is that through these vignettes you will get a glimpse of what it’s like to not only work at one of the most successful bike shops in the country, but be a bicycle salesperson and mechanic in the city of Minneappolis. Think of this as an extended shop visit, one where I get my hands dirty and experience the area and community the way those at Angry Catfish and other locals do. All photos are film, shot on 35mm and 120mm. Enjoy!

All-City Gives the Macho King and Nature Boy the A.C.E. Tubing Treatment

There’s no denying the popularity of the All-City Macho King and Nature Boy. These two bikes have been staples in the brand’s catalog since their conception and it’s been a while since we’ve seen any substantial updates on these two models. Well, today All-City announced just that.

The new models now utilize their A.C.E. – air-hardened, custom-designed, extruded steel tubing – and Columbus ‘cross forks. The Nature Boy has a new dropout design too. The chain tension is now adjusted with an eccentric bb, versus a horizontal track end.

Both models come with new splatter paint jobs, with the Nature Boy’s mimicking the All-City Fulton Racing colors. Both bikes are due to hit dealers in October, just in time for ‘cross season. Holler at your shop and see what stock they’ll be receiving. MSRP for the Nature Boy complete is $1,999 and frameset $1,299. The Macho King MSRP complete is $2,399 and $1,299 for a frameset.

All-City’s Go Devil Hubs Are Ultra Light

Hubs are rarely cheap and light. In the cycling industry, if you want lightweight, you usually pay a premium. That’s where All-City saw an opportunity in the hub market. They made a set of lightweight hubs at a low cost. Available in disc or rim brake, in black or silver, and 28h or 32h drillings. Ok so how light are these hubs? The front rim brake hub ($70) weighs 60g, with the rear ($120) coming in at 227g. The front disc is 164g ($100) with the rear disc hub ($175) is 277g. These are 11-speed compatible, with XD drivers available and aluminum freehubs. See more information at All-City.

Golden Saddle Rides: Mike’s All-City Kiwi Green Mr. Pink with Campagnolo Chorus

When All-City first developed the Mr. Pink, they wanted to deliver a classic steel road bike, made from Columbus ZONA tubing, with a Shimano kit for under $2,000. In fact, that number came in at $1,799. Last month, All-City lowered the MSRP on Mr. Pink completes to $1,499, with the framesets being reduced from $999 to $850, sparking me to finally shoot Mike’s “Kiwi Green” Mr. Pink with Campagnolo Chorus. This is not an advertisement, I just wanted to share the news and get you into your local shop to check one out.

When it comes to production steel road bikes, the Mr. Pink is one of the finer specimens. The model’s latest color grabbed Mike from Golden Saddle‘s attention, as it matched some components had had laying around including some green Chris King bits, as well as some PAUL skewers and a Turquoise King headset. The boys at the shop like to ride bikes that they sell, so when potential customers ask them questions, they can reply with honest answers.

All-City’s 10th Anniversary Mr. Pink

To celebrate their 10-year anniversary, All-City just released their most elaborate paint job ever, on a Mr. Pink road bike.

They are only doing a limited run of these, and every single one is different and unique due to the nature of splatter paint. Best of all they are available right now as completes or framesets.  Due to the paint cost, these do run a bit more than the standard Pinks with completes coming in at $2399 with Shimano 105 group and tubeless-ready wheels. Framesets are $1150
