Throughout your life, some bikes will come and some will go, and some will touch your heart and make you want to hold onto them forever. The Macho King is one of those, and if you are lucky enough to get your hands on one, you're going to love it. The biggie here is that it's made from Reynolds 853 tubing which is one of the best in the known universe. Nothing holds its value like high-end steel: it's lightweight, will last forever if treated properly and produces the finest ride quality of any material used in the bike world. Twenty years from now this frameset will still be fawned over and valued by bike geeks due to that little Reynolds sticker. It is nice now, and it will be nice forever. You're getting podium-winning cyclocross geometry, and all of the All-City touches you've come to expect: signature dropouts, signature seat collar, custom English threaded bottom bracket shell, reinforcements on the bottle bosses, and front and rear fender mounts. The dropout features a replaceable derailleur hanger (easily available from Wheels Manufacturing, it's a 49) which means that should you have a bent hanger due to mud on the cross course it is easily field serviceable. It also features a 44mm head tube, a Whisky No. 9 thru-axle carbon fork with a tapered steerer tube, and a crisp, high-speed shifting SRAM Rival 1x drivetrain. A Zipp seatpost and stem, Salsa Cowbell handlebars, and an All-City Gonzo saddle provide the finishing kit, ensuring your contact points get the same quality as the rest of the build. You can hear the cheering crowds in the distance. All hail the king.
All-City's Macho Man has been many things to many people — back alley bandit, CX shredder, all-round road runner — and now it's back for more fun, more comfort, more style, and in more sizes than ever. You get all the features that made Macho Man great in the first place, like a 612 Select chromoly frame and fork, disc brakes, double bottle cage mounts, plus hidden fender and rear rack mounts, but with size-specific wheels to accommodate smaller frame geo's and flat-bar, laid-back comfort for cruising all day. Take it across town for happy hour, make it your full-time commuter, or prove your mettle in the next Bandit Cross event. This Macho Man's built for you.
Disc brakes, one gear, and tons of fun: the Nature Boy Disc is All-City's singlespeed cross machine. The 612 chromoly steel frame and tapered chromoly fork soak up less-than-perfect tarmac and rough-and-tumble dirt and grass with equal ease. Race-inspired geometry keeps things feeling fast and makes negotiating technical turns or gridlocked traffic a breeze. With the Nature Boy, one speed is all you need, and an FSA crank turns over a pair of sturdy WTB/Joytech wheels wrapped in Clement MXP tires (Surly Knards on 650B versions). When the going gets gnarly, Promax mechanical disc brakes are there to maintain control on nasty courses and during inclement weather. And all your favorite All-City details are present including a beautiful lugged fork crown, Hennepin Bridge dropouts, signature brazed-on seat collar, custom BB shell, and signature head badge. Everything is E.D. coated for longevity and rust prevention and since cross bikes are perfect for everyday living, you’ll find hidden fender mounts and two sets of bottle bosses (reinforced of course). Race the heck out of it, ride singletrack, crush gravel, or commute to your heart’s content.
