So after putting 2,500+ road miles on my custom build (thanks Bike U Like) All City Big Block fixed gear bike I thought it was time for an honest review.

One thing I did miss out the video review was the awesome custom dropouts. These are investment cast from stainless steel, featuring the timeless Hennepin Bridge icon, but best of all include built in chain tensioners! For an OCD rider like me this means getting your chain tension just so is now super easy 🙂
