Nature Boy Disc

SCROLL DOWN

It’s finally here, the disc brake version of our iconic singlespeed cross machine.

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 E.D. coating. It has our proven race-inspired geometry, but since we're big fans of riding cross bikes every day, we've built in plenty of room to fit large tires and even fenders.

We are particularly proud of our new singlespeed disc dropout. It solves our main frustration with dropouts of this style: where do you position the brake caliper for optimum performance? The answer was to develop a proprietary system where the tension screw is used to pull the caliper mount into the correct position. Just loosen everything up, use the tensioner to achieve desired chain slack and tighten it all back up. No more guesswork, just reliable braking performance.

For racing, cruising trails, gravel or daily commuting, disc brakes and a singlespeed setup provide unmatched control and reliability.
