If the Big Block is the All-City dream trackie then the Dropout is their ideal bike for all around radness and city exploring. However you choose to build it up: fixed brakeless, two brakes and a freewheel, coaster brakes, polo, dirt, etc. The Dropout is a platform for pretty much anything you want to do that involves 700c, large tires and hard riding. It can handle trails, jumps, errands, bars, hardcourt, messenger work, whatever. It’s the ultimate get around, bash around, knock around city machine. It’s fast, fun, and comfortable.
The Dropout comes with the standard All-City hallmarks, custom headbadge, signature dropouts with built in tensioners and thoughtful design. Instead of stainless dropouts as on the Big Block, they’ve switched to 4130 chromoly for the Dropout, because 4130 is a softer material and allows for better bite on the dropouts. This is important when you’re going big and don’t want any hint of wheel slipping. It also sports a machined headtube that takes a Campag 45/45 internal headset because good quality headsets are available at very reasonable prices in this standard, and BMX bikes have proven its toughness and reliability. Instead of paint this baby is ED coated for rust prevention and then powdercoated for ultimate finish durability. The 990 BMX studs are removable, as is the rear brake cable routing.
In short the Dropout is an extremely capable urban platform that can be built up in a miriad of configurations to suit your riding style and needs. There are a ton of ways to have fun on this bike. More here
