    All City Space Horse

    So, I've searched the forums (as well as the internet) and there aren't a lot of reviews on this bike.

    Most of the discussions happened around the time it first became available (March-ish), so I was hoping to get some feedback from ffolks that have had one or experiences with one.

    I am looking for a do-it-all bike and on paper this seems to fit the bill.

    I put this in the General forum since the Space Horse seems to cover a lot of territory.

    Any insight is appreciated.

    well any dealers where you live?

    steel. TIG welded, parts installed, some brand name painted on the frame.

    probably the contact people listed are in sales,
    Most bikes are imported from one of the huge Asian contract factories.

    shimano does not play favorites bottom line for components is what it is.

    if you find a dealer go ride it.

    how good an assembled bike is depends a lot on the people taking it out of the shipping carton
    and putting it together to go on the sales floor. their attention to detail.

    I have not ridden it yet but plan to. The closest All City dealer is about 1.5 hours away.

    Well are there other brands at dealers closer? try those first, then compare feel.
    you can read brand's parts lists to see what parts are fitted.
