The Space Horse frameset is the most versatile model in the All-City line. It was designed to accommodate front and rear racks and fenders. It can be built geared or single and has clearance for large 42c tires.
The geometry is a mix of traditional road and randonneur geos with a relatively short rear end and a bottom bracket that’s lower than a road bike. This gives the bike agile handling and increased stability when loaded. The lower BB also helps you descend gravel roads like a champ.
Its load capacity is 30lbs in the rear and 20lbs in the front. These numbers allowed All-City to choose tubing that is stiff enough to handle a multi-week excursion, yet still rides beautifully and comfortably for unloaded road and gravel adventures.
One of the coolest aspects of the Space Horse project was All-City's improvement upon existing semi-horizontal dropouts (the traditional dropout for a bike of this style). The small tab on the front of the dropout in combination with the adjustment screw means that the wheel is fixed in place like a vertical dropout system. You’ll never have to wonder where to get the best shifting. Simply place the wheel fully forward in the dropout and you're done.
Its 612 Select frame features the AC custom head badge, brazed-on signature seat collar, signature semi-horizontal dropouts, and custom bottom bracket. There are double eyelets on the dropout, mid-blade mounts on the fork and reinforcements on the bottle bosses. They've also included a pump peg and internal top tube cable routing. Finish it off with an E.D. coating for rust prevention and All-City's beautiful wet paint.
