Surly's Cross Check is everybody's favorite jack-of-all-trades. Ride it, race it, commute, camp, or get stoked on 'cross; this bike has seen it all. Crafted of TIG-welded chromoly tubing with a lugged chromoly fork and all the braze-ons to run racks, fenders and bags, this offers comfort, vibration damping, and utility. Bar-end shifters and a wide-range, 20-speed Shimano drivetrain give the bike versatility and mechanical durability. The no-nonsense wheels, built from Alex rims laced to Shimano hubs, tackle the urban jungle or the 'cross course with ease. Powerful Tektro brakes and a pair of grippy, all-terrain Surly Knard tires round out the bike, keeping the rubber side down and letting you keep the fun under control.
Whether you're slaying the competition on the race course or taking on the city streets, All-City's Nature Boy is a singlespeed 'cross monster. The 612 chromoly steel frame and tapered chromoly fork soak up less-than-perfect tarmac and rough-and-tumble dirt or 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 no-nonsense Alex/All-City wheels wrapped in Kenda's proven Small Block Eight tires. When you get to the end of the road, a pair of Tektro Mini-V brakes are there to shed speed quickly, while an All-City saddle and Salsa cockpit ensure that rider comfort stays sky high. And all your favorite All-City details are present including a beautiful lugged fork crown, internal cable routing, 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). There’s clearance for 38c tires with plenty of room for mud and the steel fork is easily swapped for a carbon model, should you want to lighten up for race season. Race the heck out of it, ride singletrack, crush gravel, or commute to your heart’s content.
The disc brake version of All-City's iconic Nature Boy singlespeed cross frameset. Like its cantilever brethren, the Nature Boy Disc carries all of the AC hallmarks that you've come to expect: beautiful lugged fork crown, custom dropouts, custom BB shell, signature head badge, and an E.D. coating for rust protection. It has proven race-inspired geometry in a durable 612 chromoly steel frame with chromoly tapered fork, and since you'll want to ride this cross bike every day, it's got plenty of room to fit large tires and even fenders. For racing, cruising trails, gravel, or daily commuting, disc brakes and a single-speed setup provide unmatched control and reliability.
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.
