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.
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.
