Nick Murphy’s All-City Big Block

A few months back our friend Nick Murphy came into the shop looking to build up an All-City Big Block, AC’s steel track frame. Since the initial build Murphy has made some choice upgrades and we couldn’t help but share this well loved ride in it’s current form.

The Brooks Cambium C17

The Brooks Cambium C17 is the real deal. Having put a few thousand miles into my B17, making it insanely comfortable, I was pretty curious about the hype surrounding this vulcanized rubber saddle. We had gotten a C17 test saddle from Brooks to try out so I threw it on my bike for a week and was immediately impressed. It was immediately comfortable and easy to ride and since the geometry is closely modeled after that of the B17 I felt right at home.

SideSaddle

What truly sold me on it was the fact that it’s fully waterproof. No more dropping my burrito mid-bite to rush out side and cover up my B17 when a downpour suddenly comes on. After a week with the test saddle I picked up my own in the sleek looking slate color. Additionally everything on the C17 is replaceable and it does not require any special tools to maintain, a nice advantage over it’s leather counterparts. At just $160 this was an easy decision.

CloseSaddle

Stoked to say we’ve restocked our Cambium line at the shop with the Men’s and Women’s C17 in both natural and slate. We also filled out our entire range of Brooks’ Men’s and Women’s saddles from the B17 to the B67 and beyond. Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for the new C15 coming this Fall.
