All City Cosmic Stallion

Keeping up with the trend.

My intent was to build a new bike for Grinduro this year. I've ridden my CAAD9 CX during the previous editions, so something new would be nice. I also have a sweet Indy Fab Planet X, so I decided to try out something different: disc . The plan was to build something custom, yet my ambitions were set too late in the year. I planned for a Mosaic or a Sklar, but the eta times were after the event. Being a millennial, I wanted something sooner for the event, so I'll save that project for next year.

~ Mosaic because I absolutely love my RT-1. I met Aaron and Adam recently and they're both awesome people. Definitely willing to support either further. In the end, it'll end up being Titanium vs. Steel ~

Anyways, back on topic. I purchased the frameset from Fullerton Bikes and built it up at my dinky workshop in my garage. Build list is as follows:

All City Cosmic Stallion (49cm)
  • Fork: Whiskey No. 9
  • Headset: Cane Creek
  • Bottom Bracket: Chris King Threadfit
  • Crankset: Dura Ace 9100
  • Shifters: Ultegra 8070
  • Brakes: Shimano RS 785
  • FD: Ultegra 8050
  • RD: Ultegra RX 805
  • Stem: Pro Vibe 7s (120)
  • Handlebars: 3T Rotundo Pro (42)
  • Seatpost: Ritchey Superlogic
  • Saddle: Berk List
  • Wheelset: White Industries CLD / Hed Belgium+
  • Tires: WTB Nano
  • Rotors: Shimano RT 900 (160)
  • Cassette: Sram 1170 (11-36)
  • Pedals: Shimano XTR
  • Extras: Spurcycle Bell, Wahoo Bolt, King Ti Cages









I'm currently rebuilding the bike as a dinglespeed. Installing a Phil Wood eccentric BB and removing the derailleurs. I'll be using a wolftooth chainring/cog as well.

How it rides? It's not stiff; it's really heavy. But it's so dang comfortable. Also, disc is so effortless on these steep sandy roads. I wanted something to get me up these "gravel" (should just be called dirt) roads and allow me to take on the descents with ease. This bike is pretty much exactly what I was looking for at the moment, so that custom project might be postponed a bit longer. Also, di2 mixed with disc is just next level stuff.

Shoot me with questions if you have any

How’s the RX derailleur? How does the shift effort feel?

The lovely streaks of sweat and splashes of dirtiness are perfectly applied ;>

Shift effort is the same as any other rear derailleur as it’s Di2

How heavy is "really heavy?" It looks like you have reasonably light component spec for the bike. I'm curious as this bike definitely appeals to me.

Thanks,
Greg

I anticipate it hovering around 9.1kg (20lbs) as shown. I could get confirmed weights if really interested.

A 55cm frameset is approx 2.5kg, so the frame is bit porky considering the whisky fork (~475g). Mine is a 49, so definitely lighter than a 55, but I wouldn't assume by much.

Don't know if you saw this or it'd fit.

I ALMOST purchased that frame. It was initially sold on theproscloset and the measurements looked perfect except the giant head tube and very slack HTA.

Reach is 345 and stack is 585. Kinda funky geometry, so I passed.

Thanks for the heads up though!

I want one of these just for the paint. Ironically enough, I'd build it exactly as you have built yours too!

I like the color scheme as well--I've been thinking about picking one up but I'm a little between sizes. The 58cm is a bit smaller than I'd usually ride but the 61cm looks giant. Any tall guys out there riding one? I'm 6'2.5" with a 80cm saddle height.
