All-City Introduces New Cyclocross Bikes Including the Macho King Disc Feb 22, 2014

BK1391-02

All-City as a brand has grown so much over the years, largely due to the killer team working their asses off designing their bikes from the ground up.

For Frostbike this year, they unveiled three new disc cross models: the highly anticipated Reynolds 853 Macho King Disc, a Macho King Disc Limited Edition and a Nature Boy Disc. While the whole line is impressive, my favorite detail is the singlespeed dropout on the Nature Boy Disc…

Earlier this summer, I posted photos of an early prototype of the Macho King Disc and people were stoked. The bikes All-City unveiled tonight are dialed. See more details and photos below.

    love me some 853

  • Andrew Hopton

    Any word on pricing? Seems like it will jump up a bit from the current sub-2K market…

    • http://theradavist.com/ John Watson

      $3500 ish for the limited.

  • Andrew Hopton

    Forget that question – http://www.cxmagazine.com/macho-king-all-city-cycles-cyclocross-bike-reynolds-853-steel – $3500 for the limited edition seems like a pretty competitive price given the spec…shame they will be impossible to get your hands on…

    yuuuuuuussssss I still see fender eyelets

  • mywynne

    Well, I’ve been waiting for that Nature Boy disc for a while now…

    They gotta stop putting those Iron Cross rims on completes, especially spec’d with that Clement tire. Rim max inflation is lower than the recommended low inflation on the tire. It works but the tire can blow off if you aren’t careful (especially home mechanics) and big dudes beware of pinch flats. Salsa is guilty of this as well (Iron Cross is on the Warbird, which is marketed as a gravel race). Works awesome as a CX race rim though. But when the rim starts popping up on bikes that are going to be thrashed on the street and might not get the love they need I worry about dented beads and broken hearts.

      I like that they spec’d nice wheels. Its cool to see raceable wheels on a stock bike. I know a lot of people that have an extra set of fancy road wheels that they can race on but almost no one has extra disc wheels laying around. I have been able to set up clement tires tubeless on those rims before with no issues, but tires are always cheaper to replace than wheels.

      I saw someone’s tire blow off during the Holey Roller gravel grinder this past weekend. I think it was an iron cross rim.

    Mr Pink in 853 next? available as a frame set? everyone would have their own baby rapha continental.

    • btdubs

      The Mr. Pink is plenty close enough… Made of Zona and built to rip. If you can tell the difference, well… might as well get an actual Continental then.

      • .,`

        ohyeah, forgot ’bout that. I wish surly would do this everyone in a a while…
        not that weight in a bike like that matters much but the Zona Mr pink comes in at 4.5lbs. Thats a good half pound heavier than my 853. I understand the the wide down tube and BB30 on the Mr pink is makes it a stiff SOB but I’m hard pressed to image its stiffer then 853.

        anyway, looks like a lot of new fun kick ass bikes.

  • h salinas

    these are great, happy to see all-city moving in this direction. now if we could see a disc version of space horse next…

  • Richard Dreyer

    I love all the paint fades All City has been and is still doing. The Limited is so good!

  • STAY FED

    I am still on a hunt for the a 49cm Macho Man frame set in yellow with the cantis.

  • Joe Lusk

    I am so bummed that the sneak shots they posted didn’t turn out to be an All-City styled singlespeed MTB.

  • Jeffrey Frane

    prices: Macho King LTD: $3500, Macho King: $2700, Nature Boy Disc: $1250

  • Matthew Thomsen
