    Spoilers? The only thing to be spoiled is an unveiling party which does not concern/impress me. Not too sure who benefits from companies pretending to have big secrets. Are bike companies out spying on each other and stealing ideas or are they just paranoid? (it will destroy ya)

    I'd rather just know what is coming so I can be an informed consumer. Some things are worth waiting for but hype is not one of them.

    Sure, I'm curious but skeptical that there really is something radical coming. Hope I'm wrong.

    Party on!

    What's so top secret about a budget priced single speed?

    It's just a few triangles welded together in China with other companies stuff bolted to it.

    Looks like we've got a 27.5 SS coming. Clearance for 2.8 inch tires. Why not 3.0?

    The Jyd already has room for 27.5+ wheels, but because of rim brakes it would mean riding fixed and brakeless - or just brakeless if you're rad and mad. Maybe it's basically a Jyd with disc brakes?

    I deleted all leaked pics but looking at instagram it is different from JYD - suspension corrected fork, wider (or whatever the correct technical term is) headtube to accomodate tapered squishy fork

    I don't think about it as top-secret but rather nice people at All-City who worked hard to bring Log Lady to the market and their fans. And they want to announce it on their terms - nothing wrong with that.

    I contributed to other jerks who leaked the pics - did not think it through, thought they were public knowledge already. And I wish there was no leak so I coul've had nice unfolding day after day with grand finale on Wed.

    Yeah defintely slacker than the Jyd so it's no SUV. Looks trail capable to me, and the 5-segment fork looks fantastic!

    The whole bike looks slick! Makes me want to buy complete for the first time - waiting for Wed to see full specs and how bad MSRP would be for us in Canada (exchange rate sucks right now).

    beer factory? waterfall? turbo aggressive geo? log lady? man riding bike wearing a kilt? a woman hugging a log?

    this is like a weird dream.
    Rigid SS 29er
    SS 29+
    Fat Lefty
    SS cyclocross
    Full Sus 29er (Yuck)

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    Haha - I decided that I have to have Space Horse before I even saw a single picture, just the name did it for me. Now Log Lady -how can I resist?

    Starting to make some sense now.

    At first glance i assumed the log-lady was a female specific frame.
    As this all unfolds it's quirky marketing in play.

    I wish they would add it to their site so we could check out the specs and such... this video gives barely any info.

    it has turbo aggressive geometry and your supposed to ride it wearing a kilt, ideally in the vicinity of a waterfall and a lady holding a log. what more do you need to know?

    That's gotta be a Golden Saddle Cyclery custom build. Great idea for this rig, though.

    The All City website has been updated.

    Log Lady | All-City Cycles

    I like the looks of it, but at $1499 for the complete bike and $899 for the frameset it came in a little higher priced than I had hoped.

    JYD is out, LL is in. Agree on price - was hoping for around listed price but in Canadian dollars. And all of a sudden I have an urge to sell xcheck and pacer and get Mr Pink as well :-)

    Who wants to drink the koolaid first? I'm skeptical of the unknown entity here, A.C.E. tubing. I need a reason to pay a premium!

    All-City's website gives a good reason for the cost:

    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.
    Which is fine.

    Well, I am definitely not going for complete anymore as I already have everything to build except headset. Plus I expect more to come - if you check this video he mentions that we should see more to come in the next 18 months, it was filmed in Dec 2015
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTr3wtXFK_4
    So I think I will go with Mr Pink first - I should've got it last summer, price is also up this year

    If you want a similar ride for less bucks, look at the Surly 1x1.

    It's just 0.5 degrees steeper at the seat and head tubes, has 4 mm longer chainstays, same BB drop and a reputation with tire clearance.

    Anothe blog where they talk about the cost What Are You Paying For?

    I don't mind the price so much and I was in US I'd probably be putting deposit for complete right now. Just hard to quickly re-adjust to current exchange rate

    I have all my 650B parts on 1x1 right now. It is great ride but really want to try LL, will be just a matter os swapping parts for me.
    I love Surly bikes, especially offroad but what I found is that I much prefer All-City for cross, gravel and road (thus desire to sell xcheck and pacer). So really want to see what is their dirt stuff all about.

    My daily ride for a few months now has been the Jyd. Beefy tubing, not much stay manipulation, steep angles... It rides a bit rough on the trails and is heavy, not at all like my Ti 29er - which is to be expected. Plenty stiff though. Of course the Loggie is a very different kind of bike, so premature conclusions shouldn't be drawn.

    Well, the wait begins - if I am not mistaken it will be available in June.
    So far I saw review from radavist - not SS guy and on souped up custom build; and very light review of stock build from LOG LADY ? Pretty Damned Fast
    I hope we will see more in depth/long run reviews of both stock and custom builds

    The cost of the frame is twice the price of my JYD and twice the price of my 1x1. As much as I love what I'm seeing, I will not be adding a Log Lady. Kind of a shame. I feel like the Log Lady was designed for someone like me.

    That's all fine. Why is A.C.E. tubing twice the price of their other models? What's wrong with the steel in their old models that they had to change it and double the price? How is the Log Lady any different from a Soma B-Side, besides the 30% price hike?

    Things they mention here all cost moneys A.C.E. Tubing


    As a side note - I am glad I paid extra for my Nature Boy and Space Horse (vs xcheck) and for Big Block (vs steamroller). I don't know what is AC's long term plan and I don't like the high price tag. But I do like how their bikes look, feel and ride and I am OK to pay extra for that.
