All City Space Horse Townie
This is a custom painted All City SpaceHorse. The customer wanted an internally geared bike that had a classic look. She selected the color and had the frame painted. Parts were selected based on a balance of performance (within the intended use) and budget. The end result came out very nice.
Rims are Velo Orange PBP laced to a Sturmey Archer 3 speed rear hub and Velo Orange High Flange in the front. Panaracer Pasela sneakers and FSA Giomandi crankset with MKS BM-7 pedals.
IRD Cantilever Brakes
Brooks Cambium C17s
TRP RRL SR Brake Levers
The cockpit on this bike features a Headset, Stem and Handlebar from Velo Orange, Soma Thick & Zesty Bar Tape and TRP Brake Levers.
This was a really fun build, this bike was purchased new and has been a one owner bike that has seen use on at least a weekly basis since. The customer had the opportunity to either go to a new bike or rebuild this old workhorse and opted for a rebuild. We went with new 700c wheels (replacing the stock 27" wheels means far wider range of tire options), an internally geared 8 speed rear hub, new crankset, saddle, handlebar, pedals and of course tires. The end result is a more comfortable daily commuter that will be easier to maintain and more fun to ride!
