If memory serves me right, I lined up next to the owner of VonHof Cycles at Charm City CX last season. My memory is slightly fuzzy because only a minute or so later I had my ass handed to me as I descended into a very dark place (which wasn’t my ass, if you were wondering). I was already pretty familiar with their bikes as they started popping up at races and obviously the internet over the past few years. This new steel CX model is looking as delicious as the models I’d already seen. Check out the release below for all the juicy deets.
VonHof ACX Cyclocross Bike
The VonHof ACX: A CX Bike Made Here, For The Mud Here
With a focus on design, top-tier materials, American craftsmanship and exceptional customer service, Von Hof Cycles stands out in a crowd. Based in New Jersey with a dedicated approach to small batch bicycle building, Von Hof has raised the bar for US manufacturing in the bicycle industry.
Their flagship model cyclocross bike, the ACX embodies VonHof’s homegrown and sustainable philosophies. Prototyped for a year and built around race proven geometry, the ACX sports Columbus steel tubing, a custom/proprietary shaped top tube, clearance for 40c tires, T47 bottom bracket and a tapered head tube. While the alloy rear thru axle, DKG seat post clamp, an ENVE CX disc fork with 12mm thru axle and 2 color paint show that no detail has been overlooked. Available in stock and custom sizing, the ACX checks off all the boxes for a wide variety of riders.
