The geared tag team partner of the Nature Boy has finally arrived in the form of the Macho Man. Same geo, same fork, same awesomeness but with our signature vertical dropouts. The AC hallmarks are all still there too, headbadge, hidden fender mounts, reinforced bottle bosses, etc., but the Macho loses the internal brake routing in favor of a triple top tube guide.
That last part was quite a conundrum for us as the internal routing has been an AC calling card, but with a CX bike it didn't make sense to put the shift cables on the downtube. Which is why we elected to put them all up top and out of the way of the muck. This also allowed us to put a nice barrel adjuster on the front derailleur stop, and to take advantage of Shimano's new CX 70 top pull cyclocross specific front derailleur. Of course if you want to run a standard road front derailleur, there is a pulley mount to allow you to do so.
As far as complete bike spec goes, we're very proud of the rock solid parts kit. It’s got a Salsa bar/stem, FSA post, 105 shifters and rear derailleur, Shimano CX70 front derailleur, FSA Gossamer crankset, Conti tires, etc, etc. In short, it is stacked with good stuff. The color is a lovely citroen, and not at all banana-y as the photos might suggest.
The Macho continues and expounds upon the Nature Boy's legacy, we're proud to bring it to you, and proud to loudly send the message that we're taking over steel cyclocross.
The entire bike is E.D. coated inside and out. E.D. coating not only improves the quality and durability of the paint, but is the best rust proofing agent that we have at our disposal. With the E.D. coating there is no need to Frame Saver the bike, it’s already done for you.
Cross race geometry
This bike was designed to go real fast off road. It features aggressive yet traditional cyclocross racing geometry and goes like hell.
You can fit 38’cs in this bad boy front and rear, no problem. If you’re running fenders it’ll clear 35’s.
Investment cast from stainless steel, these are our new Signature Vertical Dropouts.
Subtle fender mounts
We hope you ride this bike in all conditions all year long, so with that in mind we added fender mounts. Since this is a race bike and we think traditional fender eyelets on race bikes are ugly, we hid the rear ones on the inside of the seat stays, and placed the fork fender eyelets on the blade to keep the look clean.
