    All-City Macho King vs. Ritchey Swiss Cross Disc

    I'm in the market for a high-end steel CX bike with disc brakes. I have a Reynolds 853 hardtail mountain bike and like the idea of adding another 853 rig to the stable, which is why I've been eyeing the All-City Macho King, but the Ritchey Swiss Cross Disc has also caught my eye. Any thoughts about how they compare? And do the frame sets weight pretty close to the same? I found weight specs for the Ritchey but not the All-City.

    Thanks in advance for any input!

    I like the Ritchey, but mostly because it seems to be less common. That may not help a whole lot. Try to ride them both if you can.

    I have the Ritchey and love it.. The bike pulls all duties even light trail,, and the "oops!" medium trails when they find me.. I have 2 sets of wheels - 1 with 30mm road tires and 1 with 40mm cross gravel tires. Looked at All-City but have always wanted a Swiss Cross... Probably won't regret either choice..
