2014 All City Nature Boy- All City's Single Speed Cross Racing Monster

"The Nature Boy is our single speed cross racing monster and carries all of the AC hallmarks that you've come to love: beautiful lugged crown fork, classic paint, custom dropouts, and signature headbadge."

It was designed primarily as a race rig, but since All City knew that many of you out there would be using this thing for every day life, they built in additional features to make it more versatile.
You’ll find hidden fender mounts, two sets of bottle bosses (reinforced of course), removeable canti studs, fat tire clearance, and a steel fork that is easily swapped for a carbon model should you want to lighten up for race season."

"Race the crap out of it, ride singletrack, gravel, or commute until your heart’s content. "

The internal rear brake routing not only improves the beauty of the frame, but also provides the ultimate in comfort when grabbing the top tube to shoulder the bike. Once you try it, you’ll wish all of your bikes (where appropriate) had this feature, and since the entire bike is E.D. coated there’s no worries about the cable channel rusting.

They have applied their Signature Rear Dropouts featuring investment cast from stainless steel, featuring built in chain tensioners, and the timeless Hennepin Bridge icon.  Since this is a race bike and All City thinks traditional fender eyelets on race bikes are ugly, they hid the rear ones on the inside of the seat stays, and placed the fork fender eyelets on the blade to keep the look clean.
