All-City just posted an update to their blog about the Macho King Disc Limited Edition, Macho King Disc and the Nature Boy Disc. Included in this update is pricing, weight and availability. If you want one of these bikes, now’s a good time to head over to All-City’s Blog to read the full update.

With the biggest and best race of the year coming this weekend, the biggest and best artist just got done signing each poster. Hey Geoff! The Mudfoot Dirty Hundo is this Saturday in Los Angeles and Sunday, after your legs are ripped off, All-City, Golden Saddle Cyclery and mother nature are going to throw a sunset ride.
Posters and t-shirts will be available at the Dirty Hundo start and whatever is left over will be sold online.
From snowy Minneapolis to sunny SoCal…
What better place to shoot this bike in Los Angeles than a spot that Kyle calls “Little Big Sur”. In actuality, it’s near the top of Griffith Park, just 30 minutes and 1,000′ in elevation gain from Golden Saddle Cyclery. This is the shop’s official sunset beer spot.
Just about every time we ride up, Kyle’s been on his All-City Space Horse. We’ll poach the horse trails as the sun is setting, rather than take the road and climb in half the time (they’re freaking steep). Usually, I’m huffing, out of the saddle on a cross bike, but Kyle kicks it into his triple and spins on up.
This bike is setup for the kind of rides Kyle enjoys: fully-loaded dirt S24 camping trips in the Angeles National Forest. He’s taken it up Mt. Lowe in the middle of the night, down a dirt track off the backside of Gleason and all over the San Gabriel Mountains. The build specs tell the tale:
Surly’s do-all Rack up front holds his E3 lamp, powered by a SON hub. Sitting on top is the JANDD Briar beer cooler rack bag (in stock at GSC). His shifting relies on Retroshift and Shimano. PAUL Minimotos provide the stopping power. A well-used Selle Anatomica saddle has seen its share of spills and thrills and those Bruce Gordon Rock n Road tires keep his rear wheel roostin’ turns.
This is probably one of the nicest Space Horse builds I’ve seen! I love the brown Chris King NoThreadset too. See more in the Gallery and remember, if you’re in LA and want a similar build, the guys at Golden Saddle Cyclery can make it happen!
Tuxedos, Jello Shots, Jeff Frane DJing. It was a great time. But damn was it cold….
As part of their unveiling for the 2014 cross bike lineup. All City threw a Snow Ball on Friday night during Frostbike. Jello Shots, dancing, free beer and formal wear filled the room at the Eagle Club as people could fondle three new cross bike models.
I ended up waiting for two hours as the shuttle bus returned to the hotel on frozen roads, so I missed out on a lot of fun but when we finally got to the party just before midnight, it was still bustlin’. Check out some photos in the Gallery!
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.
… and to see these two. Although this trip Kyle will probably be wearing more clothes.

I have so many wonderful friends in this world, most all of them ride bikes but very few are family like this dude. Jeff and Kyle are two of my closest friends and I can’t wait to see this guy again. Albeit, it’ll be a lot colder next time.
I just wanted to send warm vibes over to this dude today!
Things are finally starting to pick back up over here at PiNP. This weekend was the TXCX State Champs and in between shooting the races, I took a few quick photos of Spencer’s bitchin’ purple All City Nature Boy. People say I take a lot of photos of these bikes and it’s true. Why? Because they’re very common and yet, everyone adds their own sense of style to their builds.
Spencer’s has some limited edition PAUL purple touring cantis, a gold Chris King, Mash bar tape and even a Flag Hatchet sticker. I wanted to get some action shots of Spencer thrashing this thing in the 3′s, but missed out! Which explains the short-ish Gallery. At any rate, it’s a clean build (literally – no mud this weekend). See more in the Gallery!
Bandit Cross is a hell of a time. It’s a race with no rules and just the right amount of fun. Check out this video from All-City!
