The Cosmic Stallion – A Beast of Burden or a Thoroughbred?

In my opinion, in this specification, the Cosmic Stallion is not a thoroughbred but nor it is a dray horse either. It is a competent bike but the frame lacks the fizz I look for in a premium build.

Review: All-City Cosmic Stallion

Still, the Cosmic Stallion is a great swiss army knife bike if you don’t already own a gravel / all-road bike. If you do, then the features might not be enticing enough to make you jump ship.

The All-City Cycles Cosmic Stallion Is So Capable, You Can Hit Every Surface in a Single Ride

A new, lighter, custom-butted steel frame, 40mm Clement X’Plor MSO tires, a Whisky No. 9 carbon fork, plus a longer wheelbase and relaxed steering geometry gave me more stability and control through loose gravel.
