The Limited Edition Macho King is not just for the race course. This bike’s shred capabilities are off the charts, ready for any ride you want to undertake. Made with Reynolds 853 tubing and paired to a Whisky No.9 thru-axle fork, featuring signature investment-cast dropouts with a replaceable derailleur hanger, signature seat collar, and a custom English threaded bottom bracket shell. SRAM's Force 1x drivetrain features crisp, high-speed shifting that will make even the most hardened 'cross racer grin from ear to ear. And in the hurly-burly of a high-stakes 'cross race, hydraulic SRAM Force disc brakes are just the ticket, allowing you to sprint into the corners and scrub speed easily no matter the conditions. DT Swiss R24 rims are light, quick off the line, and tubeless ready. Clement's intermediate tread MXP tire is a rock solid choice for mixed conditions, when your days encompass dirt, pavement, grass, and gravel. The Macho King Limited is draped in a finishing kit that matches the rest of the build, with Zipp Service Course SL seatpost and stem, a Salsa Cowbell handlebar, and an All-City Gonzo saddle. This thing is amazing; ride one and see for yourself.
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.
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.
If your cross bike functions as an everyday mount that you use for ripping trails, bombing alleys, commuting, riding in the wet and generally getting rad, the Macho Man Disc is your new best friend.
It adds the all-weather stopping power and mud clearance of disc brakes to an incredibly durable 612 Select chromoly cyclocross frame and fork, as well as the ability to fit smaller riders with 650B wheel options on select frame sizes. The result is a favorite with the cross crowd, trail riders, gravel racers, and commuters.
All-City spec'd the Macho Man Disc with proven components that don't shy away from a little mud. The streamlined SRAM Apex 1 drivetrain gets you through the mud, over the barriers, and down the road on your daily commute. Sturdy WTB/Joytech wheels wrapped in 700 x 33mm Clement MXP tires (650b x 41mm Surly Knard for the smaller folks) make short work of on and off-road rides and Promax mechanical disc brakes provide reliable speed control in all types of weather. Finishing touches include rust-fighting ED coating and hidden fender mounts for those less than perfect training rides and trips downtown.
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.
