Disc brakes, one gear, and tons of fun: the Nature Boy Disc is All-City's singlespeed cross machine. The 612 chromoly steel frame and tapered chromoly fork soak up less-than-perfect tarmac and rough-and-tumble dirt and grass with equal ease. Race-inspired geometry keeps things feeling fast and makes negotiating technical turns or gridlocked traffic a breeze. With the Nature Boy, one speed is all you need, and an FSA crank turns over a pair of sturdy WTB/Joytech wheels wrapped in Clement MXP tires (Surly Knards on 650B versions). When the going gets gnarly, Promax mechanical disc brakes are there to maintain control on nasty courses and during inclement weather. And all your favorite All-City details are present including a beautiful lugged fork crown, Hennepin Bridge dropouts, signature brazed-on seat collar, custom BB shell, and signature head badge. Everything is E.D. coated for longevity and rust prevention and since cross bikes are perfect for everyday living, you’ll find hidden fender mounts and two sets of bottle bosses (reinforced of course). Race the heck out of it, ride singletrack, crush gravel, or commute to your heart’s content.
If single speeding is your thing, this is the one. This is the race version of the Nature Boy disc platform and features a single speed disc dropout, Reynolds 853 tubing, a Whisky No. 9 Thru-Axle cross fork, and hydraulic disc brakes. Reynolds 853 tubing is undisputedly among the worlds best, and nothing holds its value like high-end steel. It's lightweight, will last forever if treated properly, and produces the finest ride quality of any material used in the bike world. Twenty years from now this frameset will still be fawned over by bike geeks due to that little Reynolds sticker. The NB853 has of the All-City custom touches you've come to expect: signature dropouts, signature seat collar, custom English threaded bottom bracket shell, reinforcements on the bottle bosses and fender mounts. It has clearance for 38's, plus room for tons of mud. It's MXP tires from Clement hook up in the loose stuff, and the intermediate tread won't hold you back if your path leads onto pavement. They roll on a pair of lightweight, tubeless ready, WTB wheels. Contact points are covered by a Salsa Cowbell 3 handlebar, Salsa cockpit components, and an All-City saddle, a winning combo whether you're on your way to work or the podium.
