Many Ritchey-sponsored mountain bike champions were also cyclocross champions—Thomas Frischknecht, Henrik Djernis and Ruthie Matthes, to name a few. And though they were paid to race Ritchey mountain bikes, they often wanted a Ritchey cyclocross bike to race in the winter. This ultimately resulted in another iconic Ritchey model—the Swiss Cross. The Swiss Cross Disc blends this Cyclocross racing heritage with up-to-date geometry and tubing. And as always, the sweet, perfectly balanced ride that Ritchey is known for. We started with the same forged-and-machined integrated head tube design found on the P-29er—80 grams lighter than a standard 1-1/8" head tube and just as strong—a design which also provides much-needed shouldering room at the head tube. Tubing is an all-new triple-butted, heat treated steel designed to Tom's specifications for a classically lightweight, compliant, yet tough-as-nails frame. Geometry has been updated to reflect what 'cross riders want: race-ready handling and responsiveness that's still versatile enough to serve as a capable all-around rough road/trail bike. Tire clearance? Plenty. The Swiss Cross Disc is designed with 'cross racing in mind, after all. But with two bottle cage mounts, the Swiss Cross is perfect for long mixed rides in the off-season. - Handmade to Tom Ritchey's exacting standards - Updated modern sloping top tube Cyclocross geometry - Heat treated, triple-butted Ritchey Logic II CrMo steel tubing throughout - Forged and machined head tube with integrated cups for use with drop-in headsets – lighter and stronger than a standard head tube - Straight carbon steer tube with optimized layup for stiffness under braking forces without excessive harshness - Ritchey WCS Carbon disc cross fork, painted to match - Full-length housing stops for use with cable or hydraulic brakes - Front: 140/160mm rotor compatible; Rear: 160mm rotor compatibility - Post mount - Ritchey socket dropout - 135mm rear spacing - Room for tires up to 38c tires - Ritchey WCS headset included - 28.6 front derailleur clamp (Caution: Front derailleur clamp MAX torque of 2.5Nm) - Weight: 1960g / 4.32 lbs (55cm, frame only)
Take on the cyclocross scene and so much more with Ritchey’s venerable Swiss Cross Disc. With the same details that dominated the 'cross circuit and spurred envious glances at every start line, this timeless frameset is sure to supplant its progenitor in the annals of history. The classic details so coveted by pros and amateurs alike are all present: custom triple-butted steel, Ritchey dropouts, and the spot-on geometry that dials the ride to the perfect shade of refined stability and speed. To maximize those fine details, a lightweight head tube features Ritchey's integrated headset to shave weight and improve the steering response of the matching WCS carbon fork. With lots of room for shouldering and huge tire clearance, it's ready for the sloppiest race or ride. Yet it also has two bottle cage mounts in case you want to ride this piece of history every day. And, all-weather capable disc brakes provide sure-fire control and stopping power no matter what the conditions.
A singlespeed cyclocross sibling to the Macho King A.C.E., the Nature Boy A.C.E. comes primed for racing, covering quick up-and-downs, and cutting through the gnarliest of courses. Now crafted from A.C.E tubing — All-City’s proprietary air-hardened, custom-designed, extruded steel tubing — the Nature Boy’s expertly engineered butting profiles and wall diameters provide advantages that even the most excellent off-the-shelf tubing just can’t match. Stronger, lighter, quicker, and stiffer than ever, it’s simply unlike any other singlespeed in the world. Featuring modern race geometry and an ovalized top tube for easy shouldering over obstacles, we’ve increased the Nature Boy’s mud clearance to eliminate unnecessary pit stops on the course. Built with an Eccentric Bottom Bracket to manage the chain tensioning, a shortened chainstay, and replaceable derailleur hanger, we’ve also outfitted the Nature Boy with a Columbus Futura carbon fork with adjustable rake, tapered head and steerer tubes, and clearance for 700c x 42mm tires. With a fresh Fulton green and black splatter paint job, all the All-City custom touches you’ve come to expect star here too, including custom seat collar and dropouts, flat-mount brakes, and star reinforcements on the bottle bosses and fender mounts. For steel lovers starving for competition, these updates to the Nature Boy are destined to get you across the finish line faster than ever before. - A.C.E steel tubing: All-City’s proprietary air-hardened, extruded steel tubing, custom designed to be lighter and stronger for riding and racing - Contemporary race geometry, raised bottom bracket, shortened chainstay, and increased mud clearance - Ovalized top tube for easy shouldering over barriers - E.D. coated for durability and rust prevention - Built-in seat clamp and internal rear brake cable routing - Columbus Futura carbon fork with adjustable rake - Fits 700c x 42mm tires
Every champ has got to face a challenger at some point, and with that in mind, we’re not about to just let someone steal the cyclocross throne from the Macho King. Back for a title match wrapped in a new yellow and black splatter colorway, the Macho King is flush with special touches destined to shine both on the course and atop the podium. Designed to provide speed and agility between the tape, it’s built from A.C.E tubing, All-City’s proprietary air-hardened, custom-designed, extruded steel tubing. While excellent off-the-shelf tube offerings have their time and place, using A.C.E. here allows our engineers to go completely custom with the butting profiles and wall diameters—helping them produce a lighter, stronger, stiffer, and faster course crusher, unlike anything else out there. Boasting contemporary race geometry, English-threaded bottom bracket shell, shortened chainstay, replaceable derailleur hanger, and substantial mud clearance, the Macho King now features a Columbus Futura carbon fork with adjustable rake, tapered head and steerer tubes, and clearance for 700c x 42mm tires.
