Combine two parts versatility, one part bike-fueled thirst for the open road, and a dash of Minnesota-bred style, and you've got yourself All-City's Space Horse. The 612 chromoly frame and fork blend traditional touring and randonneuring geometry for a bike that's at home on a fully loaded trek across the state, or knocking out club rides after work. A complete set of rack and fender braze-ons let you dress up the Space Horse in whatever livery you need for your particular adventure. The long and winding road calls for equipment you can count on, and a 2x10 Shimano Tiagra drivetrain promises smooth shifts and hill-topping gearing for miles to come. The whole package rolls on a pair of Alex/Tiagra wheels equipped with 700x35c trekking tires, and a pair of Tektro cantilever brakes keep the fun under control. Salsa cockpit components and an All-City saddle provide excellent rider contact points. And all the usual All-City details are present, including a pump peg, rust-fighting ED coating, a stylish integrated seatpost clamp, and internal top tube cable routing.
Even if you own a different bike for everything, it's still necessary to have one that can do it all. That bike is the Space Horse. It's become a cult favorite because of its classic styling and ability to handle just about any task or terrain. All-City's Space Horse Disc frameset allows you to build your perfect bike with the addition of all-weather control disc brakes. The geometry is a mix of traditional road and randonneur, with a relatively short rear end and a bottom bracket that’s slightly lower than a standard road bike. This gives it both agile handling for riding unbridled and increased stability when loaded. This blend of geometry and 612 Select tubing create a bike that is capable of quick road centuries, gravel racing, commuting, and of course loaded touring. The frame accommodates front and rear racks, fenders, and tires up to 42c in size for the 700c bikes and 45c for the 650B version. It also utilizes a dropout with a replaceable derailleur hanger. All of the classic All-City touches are present: signature brazed-on seat collar, pantographed bottom bracket shell, pump peg, reinforcements on the bottle bosses, and a beautiful lugged crown fork. The fork sports both a double eyelet on the dropout and mid-blade mounts to allow you to use pretty much whatever front rack you wish.
