    Anybody know of a place in the SF Bay Area that sells All City's "Big Block"?

    Preferably just the frameset.


    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure that any shop that orders from Quality Distributors can order one. My local shop got me a Thunderdome and they're not a dealer.
    Of course that doesn't help if you want to actually be able to test ride one.
    Trying to help...

    Not to be a dick, but did you actually check their website for authorized dealers by state?

    I see 5 dealers alone listed for SF and Oakland

    Literally any decent bike shop in the US can order you a Big Block - whether they are listed as a dealer or not.

    There might be issues with shop proximity if you have an actual stocking dealer near by you might not always be able to order them.

    There isn't. Any shop with a QBP account can order All-City anything.

    Oh cool. I saw the dealer list, but I called a couple of them and they didn't have any in stock. Figured I'd check if any SF natives were around who know something. I wanted to order one online, but nobody I've seen is allowed to send them.

    I'm from Palo Alto. I've never actually seen a Big Block IRL. The only All City bike I ever saw was (I think) a Macho Man from a distance.

    Yeah, All-City is weird and prohibits their dealers from shipping their bikes & frames.

    We can sell them online, we just can't ship them...

    an attempt to prevent people selling them for a minimal percentage above cost on the internet to help brick and mortar shops?
