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.
