We've taken a look inside Thomas Callahan's Horse workshop in Williamsburg before, and we know he's good at making beautiful bikes. But with its second run of set-sized handmade bikes, Horse has outdone itself. Case in point: The Urban Assault 2014, a masterfully sculpted piece of steel.

Destined to be a mean machine on and off the dirt track, Horse's version of a hybrid cross bike offers the unique aesthetic of a slimmer head tube—giving the bike a more classic look. Of course, being a handmade bike, the price is not cheap. The Assault will cost you $775 to deposit and $1550 total for the frame and carbon Enve fork.

The rest of the components are up to you—though Thomas styled his personal Urban Assault with a certain unquestionable flair. Horse is selling SRAM Rival components as well, if you want to save yourself some time and buy everything at once.

According to Horse, you should be able to get this puppy up and running before the summer is in full swing if you order relatively soon—the planned release is around mid-July. Happy (and safe) riding. [Horse Cycles]

Thomas explained that he was interested in maintaining the more classic head tube look while having a carbon fork which resulted in having to go without the disk brakes. What do you guys think?
