The Macho King is a special one. Throughout your life, some 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. It is simply the very best cross bike we have ever made, and if you are lucky enough to lay hands on one, you're going to love it.
The biggie here is that it's made from Reynolds 853 tubing which is, in our estimation, the finest steel going. 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 by bike geeks due to that little Reynolds sticker.
The other big difference between this and the standard Macho Disc is that it comes with a 44mm headtube and a Whisky No. 7 carbon fork with a tapered steerer tube. This fork saves about a pound and a quarter over our excellent steel variant.
It retains all the All-City custom touches such as: signature dropouts, signature seat collar, custom English threaded bottom bracket shell, internal cable routing for the front derailleur, reinforcements on the bottle bosses and fender mounts. It has clearance for 38's, plus room for tons of mud. Our proven cyclocross geometry and the All-City name back it all up.
This thing is amazing; ride one and see for yourself.
*please note, rims have a 45psi limit
