NBD - All City Super Pro!

All City Super Professional SS. Fairly stock build, but with WTB Byways, 42T chainring, VO seatpost, Brooks C17, One Up pedals, and ESI grips.

Awesome bike -- lightweight and fun! Photos don't capture all the sparkly metalflake in the silver paint.

Those are cool, I was looking at it a couple of weeks ago when I saw Jensen had them in stock but I just have too many bikes. I like that silver paint. I'd do a drop bar conversion myself.

All City is nailing it. Still loving my Big Block and you're right about the paint. It has to be seen in person to appreciate the sparkle.

I like the build, very sensible and fun!

I've already got the drop bar SSCX base covered, so I wanted something intended for a riser. But the real revelation has been the 650b X 47 tubeless "all road" wheelset. Amazing.

Yeah that tire size must be smooth as hell. I have a '07 Cannondale F4 mountain bike that was collecting dust and I just put some 26x1.5 road tires on it along with some bar ends. It is kind of cool riding on the road with flat bars but I didn't really like it until I put the bar ends on. That's where my hands rest most of the time.

Thinking about converting this to a single.

Great looking bike--I also love All City's finishes. Yeah, I have a 700c x 40 cross bike (with tubes), and a 650b x 47 gravel bike, tubeless, (my Rove has that same wheelset as your bike) and on that I run my PSI as low as 18-19 offroad, a little higher if strictly pavement. SO cushy! Definitely sticking w this--if anything I'll go wider....

Nice! I have a 700 X 35 tubed SSCX, and the comfort level between the two bikes is like night and day. I haven't dropped the pressure on the All City down that low yet, but it's nice to know I can!
