I built this up recently adding a Shimano Ultegra drivetrain and brakes, Hope BB and Shimano wheelset to the classic Mr Pink frameset from All City.
“Our flagship road racer was designed to carry you as quickly and efficiently as possible over any road surface. From pot-hole-filled city streets, to smooth country roads, and gravel centuries, this bike does it all with the style and smoothness that can only come from high-end steel. The Classic pairs our wonderful Columbus Zona frame with a vibration absorbing matching steel fork.
Geometry-wise, it’s a classic racer, but we’ve made tweaks to the equation that remove the limitations associated with your average road bike. It has clearance for 32c tyres (28’s with mudguards) for mixed-terrain riding, hidden fender mounts for foul-weather days and an ED coating for rust prevention and longevity. The perennial favorite Columbus Zona tubeset is light weight and provides a stiff, yet remarkably comfortable ride.
The Mr. Pink sports all of our classic steel touches: a custom head badge, All-City signature dropouts, signature brazed-on seat collar, internal top tube cable routing for the rear brake, a pump peg and reinforcement stars on the bottle bosses. These are the signifiers of quality that inform, at a glance, that this is a high-end, hand-crafted machine.
This is the frame that won the 2013 Gravel World Championships and has been campaigned in all manner of crits, road races, fondos and gravel events. Standout in a world of alloy and carbon, ride one for yourself and feel just how amazing a steel road bike can be.”
