All-City Introduces the Log Lady

Log-Lady

All-City Cycles finally dropped the Log Lady earlier this week. It will be available in June, so start bugging your LBS. Info from All City below:

“Designed for the tight, twisty, and nasty stuff, the Log Lady is a technical singletrack riders dream. Aggressive angles, our signature single speed disc dropouts, a custom seat collar, gorgeous five piece segmented fork and our own custom A.C.E. tubeset, make this an absolute trail shredder.

The bike is corrected for a 100mm suspension fork, utilizes 27.5 wheels, has a 44mm headtube, disc brakes, short chainstays, and classic good looks. It is designed around a 27.5 x 2.4 tire with tons of clearance for mud, though not designed as a “plus” bike we have successfully mounted a 27.5 x 2.8 WTB on a 35mm wide Velocity rim with no issues.

The A.C.E. tubeset found on the Log Lady was custom designed and drawn for this particular application. The tubing is seamless, heat treated, Air-hardened, and Custom Extruded to our exact specifications and needs. The use of full frame A.C.E. Tubing allows our engineer total control over the butting profiles and wall thickness’ and allows us to build a stronger and lighter frame than we could from off the shelf options.

Of note is the unique downtube which features an “internal gusset” at the headtube junction.  The custom asymmetric butting profile allows us to produce a tube that has increased wall thickness at the bottom, and reduced wall thickness at the top. The resulting downtube eliminates the need for external headtube gussets, is lighter, and just plain better looking.”

It Feels Good to be Home. But I do Miss the Mountains

Peak-to-Peak-3

Peak-to-Peak-1

Peak-to-Peak-2

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to spend some time with some of my closest friends in Rocky Mountain National Park. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been (Definitely better than Disney World, where I was the weekend before). We set out late into the night, taking shifts driving, as some of us were able to catch a few Zzz’s. We were in awe over the monstrous windmill farms that spotted the plains of Kansas (The most exciting thing in Kansas). We crossed the border into Colorado as the sun began to rise. Most of us beginning to wake, we stopped for gas and took in the moment. Even a sunrise in the flat nothingness of the Kansas prairie is beautiful to see.

Our journey took us to Denver to pick up a friend. Tired and sore from a long drive we managed to get in some bowling and a little shopping as we waited for our friend to get off work. We finally arrived in Estes Park just in time watch the sun drop over the mountains. We ordered a shitload of pizzas, picked up some beer, and hung out in the hot-tub. We were all done and in bed by 11, some of us had been up for over 36 hours. Needless to say we were all dead.

We spent much of Saturday doing touristy stuff. Walking around the Stanley Hotel, shopping (the rock store is the coolest place. They sell dinosaur bones.), and just taking it all in. After spending the day running around we hit the hot tub again, relaxed, and got ready for the night. We went to a local Karaoke bar. Some of us sang our hearts out, some of us laughed, but we all enjoyed each others company.

Sunday we headed back home. We decided to take a detour through Rocky Mountain National Park. Climbing the mountains, ears popped, we ran out of windshield washer fluid, and it began to snow. None of this seemed to matter as we were all distracted by what mother nature had put in front of us.

We arrived home in Kansas City, MO around 230 in the morning. Exhausted from a twelve plus hour car ride, we crashed immediately, dreaming of the snow blown mountain tops and crisp clean air.
