Macho Man Flat Bar

Macho Man Flat Bar


The new flatbar spec of the Macho Man is perfect for riders who want a fast, responsive, bike for quick trips around town or off-roading.

This generation of our everyday cross mount is better than ever with an expanded size range and 650B size wheels on the 43,46, and 49 sizes. Utilizing the 650b wheel size for our smaller bikes allows us to better serve riders by preserving our desired geometry as we scale the bike down the size range. Simply put, there are significantly less handling tradeoffs with a 650b wheel in those sizes, and smaller riders will benefit from smaller top tube lengths and the greater acceleration that a lighter, smaller wheel provides.

Like all of our steel bikes it sports classic hand-built frame details such as: a custom head badge, bi-plane lugged fork crown, signature brazed-on seat collar, signature vertical dropouts, custom bottom bracket, bottle boss reinforcements and an E.D. coating. It clears a 38c tire (650b x 42c on the smaller sizes) with plenty of room for mud, has fender mounts for rain days, and rear rack capability.

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.
