Today’s featured product is All-City Macho Man **Free Planet Bike Hardcore Fenders**, one of the most popular items from the Complete Cx Bikes category provided by All-City. Save a whopping $135! Wow, I like that We give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.

All-City Macho Man **Free Planet Bike Hardcore Fenders**

*Please specify what size FREE fenders you would like. 45mm or 35mm* The geared tag team partner of the Nature Boy has finally arrived in the form of the Macho Man.
Same geo, same fork, same awesomeness but with our signature vertical dropouts.
The AC hallmarks are all still there too, headbadge, hidden fender mounts, reinforced bottle bosses, etc., but the Macho loses the internal brake routing in favor of a triple top tube guide. That last part was quite a conundrum for us as the internal routing has been an AC calling card, but with a CX bike it didn’t make sense to put the shift cables on the downtube. Which is why we elected to put them all up top and out of the way of the muck.
This also allowed us to put a nice barrel adjuster on the front derailleur stop, and to take advantage of Shimano’s new CX 70 top pull cyclocross specific front derailleur.
Of course if you want to run a standard road front derailleur, there is a pulley mount to allow you to do so.
As far as complete bike spec goes, we’re very proud of the rock solid parts kit.
It’s got a Salsa bar/stem, FSA post, 105 shifters and rear derailleur, Shimano CX70 front derailleur, FSA Gossamer crankset, Conti tires, etc, etc.
In short, it is stacked with good stuff.
The color is a lovely citroen, and not at all banana-y as the photos might suggest. The Macho continues and expounds upon the Nature Boy’s legacy, we’re proud to bring it to you, and proud to loudly send the message that we’re taking over steel cyclocross. Frame

    Which Is A Better Bike? I posted this a couple days back but the links were no good. Lets try again! haha.




    I’m looking for a bike to ride somewhat long distances. Something good enough for a 300 mile ride. I’m not a complete serious rider but do enjoy riding about every other night Thanks!

      I’d pick the 2nd bike, the Grand Record. It appears to have better components and I would guess it’s the lighter weight bike. However, are you only 5 foot tall? Because if you’re more than an inch or 2 taller, that 2nd bike isn’t going work! It’s 48 cm–made for mini-riders, such as myself!

      The first bike, the Fantom CX, would probably make better sense for touring, especially as it comes in different sizes and already has front and rear braze-ons and eyelets for attaching fenders, racks, and panniers. Not crazy about that cro-moly fork–carbon’s lighter and more shock absorbing, and all those “alloy” components? Not even sure what that means, but my guess is it translates into an overall heavier bike that will offer a rougher ride and take more effort to ride than the Grand Record.

      Athough Motobecane isn’t especially popular with many “bike snobs”, I know a number of people who bought and ride them–and they’ve been well satisfied.

      OK, so it probably wouldn’t be my first choice for a 300 mile ride, but that’s only because I’m in that group of “snobs”. Really, for the type of riding you described, it should be more than sufficient, and I’ve been on long-distance rides with others on far lesser bikes, and they did just fine! Better than me, because I’m not an especially strong rider, for which I compensate for by riding a better bike. For what you’re getting with a Motobecane though, the price really can’t be beat!

      Enjoy your new bike.

      The Grand Record is the better bike. It has a better component group eventhough both are 27 speeds.

    Which Bike Should I Get? 10 Points!? So I’m very active and exercise 6 times a week and want to include cycling into my exercise routines. I’m going to be cycling on the streets more than off road, and I want it to have several gears so that I can get a good work out on my legs. bikes I’m thinking about getting; (all 2013 GT) 2013 gtr series 4 MSRP $890 or 2013 gtr corsa 2.0 MSRP $940. or should I just wait a few months and save my money and get the 2013 GTR CX Elite MSRP $1450, or a 2013 GTR CX Sport MSRP $1100. I’m tight on money but I don’t want to buy a cheap bike and have to put more money into it to fix it, but I don’t want to buy a crazy expensive bike because I’m not and never will be a super serious competitive biker.

      The 2 first bikes are road bikes, and the last 2 are cyclocross bikes. Don’t just look at the prices. You should be going to bike shops where you can see the bikes and have the differences explained to you. Very few people ever regret buying a better bike, but many do regret that they didn’t spend a bit more money at the outset. Upgrading to a better spec later on, even if it is possible always costs far more than the price difference. Look at this way: markup on individual parts at retail is about 3 times as much as markup on a complete bike. On top of that when you upgrade you buy parts twice, you bought those parts included in the original price of the bike and then again when you upgraded. Unless you know how to do installation yourself, you pay for that as well. Original parts are included in your original warranty, which includes errors in building the bike. Upgrade parts only have a warranty on the part itself, not the installation unless a dealer installs the part.
