Yes, I like that very much! Très chique!!
And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

I had a friend with a soda blaster strip the paint. I couldn't stand the yellow!

Cool Bike, but you might have your brake pad(s) the wrong way around. From the pictures it looks like the rear right block might just go and tear up the tire quite soon.

Amazing! I love the Thomson and Chris King all around. Still waiting on my road bar... I do wish my road frame used a headset style that CK makes... alas we can't have it all. Youve built such a sweet looking ride.
How do you feel about the red hubs and BB though? Im trying to choose between going with black, red or gold for those parts on my Ridley... do you find the coloured parts stand out too much?

Cheers!

Did you use any clear coat on the frame after it was stripped? I have an All City Nature Boy and I'd like to strip the green paint like you did.

I love color! I feel like hubs/bb/headset matching isn't too much and looks good. I have another bike that is the same way with pink parts. Pink hubs/bb/headset/seat post collar. It looks great to me!

How do you like the frame?

I'm looking at buying one as a "do it all" bike (rackless touring, cyclocross, commuting) and I'm trying to stay away from buying a Surly Cross Check as they're ridiculously common around here.

That looks really awesome :twisted:
How much does the frame weigh?
I´m looking a bit at All City, it seems they´re making some neat bikes...
