The Macho Man from All City Cycles
We tested a mid-range ride in this category, the Macho Man model from All-City Cycles, which goes at $1,595 for a complete build.
A steel frame with thoughtful details is the heart of this bike — touches like hidden fender mounts, reinforced bottle bosses, retro paint job, and an All-City badge make it unique.
Cables routed on the top tube keep everything out of the mud and spray. Components include Shimano’s new top-pull, cyclocross specific derailleur, the CX70.
There’s a solid, straight steel fork, Shimano 105 STI shifters and 105 rear derailleur, a Salsa handlebar and stem, and FSA seatpost and cranks. The complete build comes with Tektro R720 brakes, Alex Race 24 rims, and tires from Continental, the brand’s Cyclocross Race 700 X 35c model.
