Thread: All City Nature Boy

  1. #1

    All City Nature Boy

    I wanted to build up a bike with a freewheel and brakes, so after tossing up between 3 or so options I ended up with an All City Nature Boy.

    Frame: All City Nature Boy + fork
    Headset: Chris King
    Stem: Thomson Elite
    Seatpost: Thomson Elite
    Seat: Fizik Arione
    Bars: Funn
    Grips: Odyssey Chase Hawk
    Brakes: Avid Single Digit SL
    Levers: Avid FR 5
    Cables: Shimano XTR
    Wheels: Phil Wood hubs laced to Mavic Open Pros 36 hole.
    Freewheel: White Industries Trials 18t
    Cranks: Sugino Messenger 170mm and Sugino bottom bracket
    Chainring: Cycle Underground 46t
    Pedals: Time Atac

    Still needs full fenders, matching headset spacers and some small tweaks, and I'm not 100percent certain I like the Arione saddle so we will see how it goes in the future. I've got some knobbies and a smaller chainring coming so it will get some dirt action, but its main use will be commuting.

    Shout out to Evan at Cyclic for building my wheels, organising my frame and installing my headset and bottom bracket.

    Good choices all 'round!

    For fenders, have you chosen? For flexible plastic guards, SKS Chromoplastics are great, VaVert (wiggle) are great value and almost as good as the SKS for hardware and fit, Planet Bike are somewhere in the middle. Avoid Zefal & Soma like the plague.

    That's a mighty nice commuter. I'm looking to start a similiar build for a commuter.
    Again nice build!

    Haven't quite got around to looking at fenders yet. The SKS look the goods though, so I might have to order those. Anyone stock them in Melbourne? I'm not sure I want to wait a couple weeks for them to arrive.

    Thanks for all the positive comments also.
