So what is this Straggler anyway? The easy answer is to say that Surly added disc brakes to a Cross-Check and this is close to accurate. People have asked them to make a disc version of their highly versatile Cross-Check for a long time now and almost everything about the two are very similar. Straggler is slightly different, though. The most obvious difference of course is that the Straggler has disc caliper mounts instead of rim brake studs. It'll accept rotors up to 160mm. The rear dropouts are unique, too. They're a partially closed horizontal design that accommodates singlespeed or geared drivetrains. They feature stop screws that thread in from the rear to further secure the wheel and to position the rear wheel for optimal shifting, plus a forward-mounted stop screw on the drive side to keep the wheel from slipping forward under the force of your gargantuan legs. The rear dropouts are spaced 135mm instead of 132.5mm like the Cross-Check simply because there are far more options for disc hubs in this spacing. Straggler shares all of the Cross-Check's braze-ons for fenders, racks and bottle cages. The Straggler's geometry is slightly different, with angles and tube lengths very close but not identical to the Cross-Check, but like the Cross-Check it's ready to take you just about anywhere. It's a day tripper and a weekender. It's a 'rough road' road bike. It's a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing. It's a utilitarian townie. It's a light-duty touring bike. It's an all-weather commuter. And when you get tired of one set up, you can swap parts around and turn it into something else. We think that's pretty neat. - Fender eyelets at the dropouts, front and rear rack bosses and dual water bottle mounts, downtube shifter mounts - 100% Surly proprietary 4130 chromoly tubing. TIG-welded, double-butted main triangle - Forward-exiting horizontal dropouts with adjusters give you singlespeed compatibility and wheelbase adjustability to help you fit the tires and fenders you want to run with that drivetrain you want to run. - Frame is ED Coated for increased life expectancy
Developed amid the rugged landscape and abundant precipitation of Canada’s Pacific Coast, the new Threshold Aluminum is perfect for any rider looking to get down and dirty at their first cross race. Featuring the same race-proven geometry and ARC technology of the Threshold Carbon, the Threshold Aluminum delivers race-ready performance along with all the versatility you expect from a ’cross machine. Specifically designed for single speed aficionados, the Threshold Aluminum Single Speed embodies simplicity and reliability.

The stiff, lightweight Threshold C1 delivers podium-seeking cyclocross speed and will have you wondering how one hour can take so long but hurt so good. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the rugged landscape and abundant precipitation of Canada's Pacific Coast is the ultimate place to develop and perfect a carbon fiber cyclocross bike. It helped us engineer the Threshold C1's mid-modulus carbon frame and fork with ample mud clearance, size-scaled tubing, ovalized seatstays, and bent chainstays to dissipate shock and maximize CX performance. The Threshold C1 features wireless electronic shifting from a SRAM Force AXS 12-speed drivetrain, and Force hydraulic disc brakes, meaning there are no cables to get gummed up with mud after a lap in the sticky mud and snow. A SRAM 900 thru-axle hubset is laced to WTB KOM Light i21 TCS rims that support fast, sturdy Maxxis All-Terrene 33mm knobby tires.
The stiff, lightweight Threshold C2 delivers podium-seeking cyclocross speed and will have you wondering how one hour can take so long, but hurt so good. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the rugged landscape and abundant precipitation of Canada's Pacific Coast is the ultimate place to develop and perfect a carbon fiber cyclocross bike. It helped us engineer the Threshold C2's mid-modulus carbon frame and fork with ample mud clearance, size-scaled tubing, ovalized seatstays, and bent chainstays to dissipate shock and maximize CX performance. The Threshold C2 features a Shimano GRX wide-range 11-speed drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes. Internally routed cables mean they won't get clogged after a lap in the sticky mud and snow.

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. It retains all the All-City custom touches you’ve come to expect, such as custom seat collar and dropouts, flat-mount brakes, and star reinforcements on the bottle bosses and fender mounts. This generation of the Macho King is the choice for steel lovers with a thirst for competition, so get out there, break some hearts, and separate the contenders from the pretenders. - 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 - Columbus Futura carbon fork with adjustable rake - Fits 700c x 42mm tires
If your cross bike functions as an everyday mount that you use for ripping trails, bombing alleys, commuting, riding in the wet and generally getting rad, the Macho Man Disc is your new best friend. It adds the all-weather stopping power and mud clearance of disc brakes to an incredibly durable 612 Select chromoly cyclocross frame and fork, as well as the ability to fit smaller riders with 650B wheel options on select frame sizes. The result is a favorite with the cross crowd, trail riders, gravel racers, and commuters. All-City spec'd the Macho Man Disc with proven components that don't shy away from a little mud. The streamlined SRAM Apex 1 drivetrain gets you through the mud, over the barriers, and down the road on your daily commute. Sturdy WTB/Joytech wheels wrapped in 700 x 33mm Clement MXP tires (650b x 41mm Surly Knard for the smaller folks) make short work of on and off-road rides and Promax mechanical disc brakes provide reliable speed control in all types of weather. Finishing touches include rust-fighting ED coating and hidden fender mounts for those less than perfect training rides and trips downtown.
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.
