The Nature Boy is our single speed cross racing monster and carries all of the AC hallmarks that you've come to love: beautiful lugged crown fork, classic paint, custom dropouts, and signature headbadge. It was designed primarily as a race rig, but since we knew that many of you out there would be using this thing for every day life, we built in additional features to make it more versatile.
You’ll find hidden fender mounts, two sets of bottle bosses (reinforced of course), removeable canti studs, fat tire clearance, and a steel fork that is easily swapped for a carbon model should you want to lighten up for race season.
Race the crap out of it, ride singletrack, gravel, or commute until your heart’s content.
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.
Internal cable routing
The internal rear brake routing not only improves the beauty of the frame, but also provides the ultimate in comfort when grabbing the top tube to shoulder the bike. Once you try it, you’ll wish all of your bikes (where appropriate) had this feature, and since the entire bike is E.D. coated there’s no worries about the cable channel rusting.
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, featuring built in chain tensioners, and the timeless Hennepin Bridge icon.
Removeable brake studs
This is a nod to our fixie riders. If you’re not using them, remove them for weight savings and clean lines.
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.
