A 100 years ago, there were no road bikes and touring bikes—there were just bikes, and that didn't stop anyone from heading out into the wilderness. With this spirit, Specialized built their groundbreaking Sequoia. The Sequoia's path to adventure starts at the frame, which Specialized constructed from Premium Cr-Mo and stainless steel tubing. These materials are coveted for their strength, respectable weight, and tuned ride quality. Of course, this is only a piece of the equation, with the next being its dedicated Adventure Geometry that provides ample confidence over rough and smooth terrain. This geometry is unique in that it skews the line between a traditional road bike and a dedicated touring rig. You'll find an ample wheelbase and low bottom bracket for control, but the chainstays and tube angles ensure that you'll be able to travel efficiently and quickly, regardless of whether or not your rig is loaded. Digging into the details, the frame is outfitted with an ample number of mounts for bottles, racks, and fenders. And for the build, Specialized included reliable parts, like a mix of sturdy Shimano components, fuss-free mechanical disc brakes, and hand-built Hayfield wheels that are cased in wide, 2Bliss Ready tires.

The Space Horse is the most versatile model in the All-City line. The 612 Select steel frame was designed to accommodate front and rear racks and fenders with a load capacity of 30lbs in the rear and 20lbs up front. The geometry is a mix of traditional road and randonneur geos with a relatively short rear end and a bottom bracket that’s lower than a road bike. This gives the bike agile handling and increased stability when loaded. The lower BB also helps you descend gravel roads like a champ. A 2x10-speed Shimano Tiagra drivetrain promises smooth shifts and hill-topping gearing for miles to come, while a pair of Alex/Tiagra wheels equipped with 700x35c trekking tires and a pair of Tektro cantilever brakes keep the fun under control. Salsa cockpit components and an All-City saddle provide excellent rider contact points. And all the usual All-City details are present, including a pump peg, rust-fighting ED coating, a stylish integrated seatpost clamp, and internal top tube cable routing. All-City even improved the semi-horizontal dropouts. The small tab on the front of the dropout in combination with the adjustment screw means that the wheel is fixed in place like a vertical dropout system. You’ll never have to wonder where to get the best shifting. Simply place the wheel fully forward in the dropout and you're done.

Combine two parts versatility, one part bike-fueled thirst for the open road, and a dash of Minnesota-bred style, and you've got yourself All-City's Space Horse Disc. The 612 Select chromoly frame and fork blend traditional touring and randonneuring geometry for a bike that's at home on a fully-loaded trek across the state or commuting to and from work. The smaller sizes are designed around 650B wheels to offer a better fit to smaller riders. A relatively short rear end and a bottom bracket that’s slightly lower than a standard road bike give it both agile handling for riding unbridled and increased stability when loaded. With the addition of the all-weather control of Promax disc brakes, this Space Horse is without a doubt the best version yet. A complete set of rack and fender braze-ons let you dress up the Space Horse in whatever livery you need for your particular adventure. The long and winding road calls for equipment you can count on, and the SRAM Apex 20-speed drivetrain promises smooth shifts and hill-topping gearing for miles to come. The whole package rolls on a pair of quality WTB rims and VEE Speedster tires that offer unbelievable traction in wet or dry conditions. And all the usual All-City details are present, including a rust-fighting ED coating, a stylish integrated seatpost clamp, and signature All-City dropouts with a removable derailleur hanger.
