Choo is a photographer that’s based in Singapore, a city that, traditionally, has a massive cycling culture. He’s part of a new generation of cyclists riding the streets that see the bicycle as a beautiful object, not just a utilitarian tool. The All-City Space Horse is both, but Choo has built up a very special interpretation of it.
During his business day, Choo has to transport himself around the city of Singapore quickly, without too much consideration for the well being of his bike. The Space Horse is a robust unit and Choo selected parts that matched, dressing up the frame as a timeless classic with white bar tape and brown Schwalbe Big Apple tires.
The other components consist of no-nonsense Dia-Compe brake levers, Shimano 105 calipers and derailleurs, actuated by indexed Shimano 600 down tube shifters. Mavic A319 trekking rims, laced to 105 hubs, will provide reliable rolling and the chainrings should look familiar to lovers of the modern classic: the wholly misunderstood, ovalised Shimano Biopace.
Choo is also the founder and a member of “Slow Biking Singapore”, a Singapore-based group that place a special emphasis on practical cycling. Head to their Facebook page for more information.
