As you may or may not have heard, at Frostbike this weekend our newest baby took it's first bow. The long awaited geared version of the Nature Boy, which thematically we've dubbed the Macho Man.
Nature Boy lovers have been asking for this for a while now, and we're proud to be able to give the people what they want. Beyond all the typical AC touches that you've come to know and love: headbadge, two tone paint, brazed seat collar, sexy fork, E.D. coat, etc, the Macho Man will sport our new signature vertical dropouts. It's got top tube cable routing to keep everything out of the muck, and was designed around Shimano's new top pull cyclocross front derailleur the CX70.
In tubing and geometry it is identical to the Nature Boy, because we saw no need for improvement or any glaring deficiencies in our single speed beast. If it's awesome, leave it alone.
Let's get to some pics.
You should know that my attempts to capture the bike's true color have failed. In this morning's light it looks kind of bananay but in fact it is a kickass citrus color.
The Macho Man will be out in September 2012
If you'd like one, please get your local shop to prebook it to ensure availability, we expect these things to go quick.
