The Big Block represents All-City's vision of the ideal track bike for everyday life. Take it to the streets or the boards. Wherever you ride it, the Big Block will hold up its end of the deal. All-City's proprietary 612 Select double-butted chromoly steel soaks up bumps and sprints like a champ. Each piece of tubing on every frame size has been carefully scrutinized and specifically chosen to create the best ride possible. This includes butting placement, tubing diameter, and wall thickness. And because it's destined to see usage beyond the veoldrome, it fits a 32c cross tire and has a single set of water bottle mounts for all day in the saddle. The front and rear of the bike are drilled out for a brake, so single speeding (or double brake fixed) is no problem. The package is finished off with a custom headtube badge, brazed-on seat collar, custom bottom bracket, and signature Hennepin Bridge dropouts. An E.D. coating for rust prevention is applied before the classic wet paint finish. Attention to detail is All-City's mantra and it shows in every aspect of this meticulously-designed, beautifully-constructed track racer.
