All-City made its name with fixed gears, the QBP-owned brand has since branched out to road, cyclocross, gravel and mountain bikes. All the frames in this small company’s growing line share two things in common: they are all constructed from steel and feature thoughtful details that make them appear more high-end than their price tags suggest.

The Electric Queen is All-City’s take on a trail hardtail. It fits the bill with a relatively slack head angle paired with a 120mm suspension fork, short chainstays, Boost axle spacing and stealth routing for a dropper seatpost. It also has the ability to run standard 29-inch tires or 27.5+ rubber.

The Electric Queen is available now. The complete bike retailing for $2,299 and the frame priced at $750. (UK and Australian pricing have yet to be announced.)
