Macho Man Disc

SCROLL DOWN

If you're like us, your cross bike functions as an everyday mount that you use for ripping trails, bombing alleys, commuting, riding in the wet and generally getting rad. So you've probably come across some situations where you've wanted more stopping power. Consider disc brakes.

The Macho Disc was the logical next step for our Macho Man platform. It adds the all-weather stopping power and mud clearance of discs to our proven 612 Select cross frame and fork. The result is a favorite with the cross crowd, trail riders, gravel racers and commuters.

Like all of our steel bikes it sports classic hand-built frame details such as: a custom head badge, bi-plane lugged fork crown, internal top tube cable routing, signature brazed-on seat collar, signature vertical dropouts, custom bottom bracket, bottle boss reinforcements and an E.D. coating. It clears a 38c tire with plenty of room for mud and has fender mounts for rain days.

612 Select Tubing

Our proprietary blend of 4130 double-butted CroMoly tubes. Every piece of tubing on every frame size has been carefully chosen to provide the best ride possible.

E.D. Coating

In Electrophoretic Deposition, or E.D., coating the frame or fork is placed in a paint bath where an electric charge is applied. This fuses a thin layer of black satin coating to the tubes inside and out. This coating acts as both a rust preventative inside and a primer out.

Custom Details

We’re way into the handbuilt touches when it comes to our frames. Which is why you’ll find things like internal cable routing, custom dropouts, lugged crown forks, reinforcements on the bottle bosses, hidden fender mounts, etc on our framesets.

Signature Dropouts

Investment cast, stainless steel vertical disc dropout with a lugged chevron lower portion and “All-City” on the pads.
