What is a Cosmic Stallion?
All-City has a long reputation for coming up with quirky product names.
In the same way that the Macho King is the premium version of the Macho Man cyclocross bike, the new Cosmic Stallion is the superlative of the Space Horse, All-City’s gravel / touring model.
The Cosmic Stallion is designed as an all-road racer. It sports a full carbon fork with a 100x15mm thru-axle. There’s a 142x12mm thru-axle at the rear. Other frame features include a 68mm threaded bottom bracket, three bottle mounts and ample braze-ons for racks and fenders.
Tire clearance is impressive. The Cosmic Stallion can accommodate 700x45mm tires or 700x40mm tires when running fenders. Fans of high volume 650b tires will be glad to learn it can fit tires up to 47mm wide.
Frame geometry is in line with many other gravel / all-road bikes. The Cosmic Stallion has a relaxed head tube angle, low bottom bracket and longer chainstay length than would be found on traditional road or even cyclocross bikes.
Previous top-end All-City bikes such as the Macho Man were constructed from Reynolds 831 tubing. For the Cosmic Stallion, All-City worked with its supplier to develop a custom double-butted 4130 steel tubeset. This new tubing is dubbed A.C.E., for air-hardened, custom, extruded. All-City claims its A.C.E. tubing saves 5oz / 141g over the 853 Macho Man in a size 55cm frame.
Pricing and availability
The Cosmic Stallion is available now. All-City offers this new model in a single complete build with a SRAM Rival 22 build. Pricing is set at $2,599.
If more you’re interested in building your own Cosmic Stallion from the ground-up, the frame with Whiskey No. 9 carbon fork retails for $1,250. (UK and Australian pricing have yet to be announced.)
