I can only comment on the Macho Man - as that is my only bike and I love it. I enjoy the lower BB (7MM) and somewhat race oriented geometry (although with slacker head and seat angles than a true race bike). Great riding bike. I put on a carbon Ritchie race fork but took it off because I actually prefer the ride on the OEM fork. I should mention that I upgraded the drivetrain to Shimano 105 with CX70 Cranks as well as Ritchie stems and handlebars. My point is that the oem components (especially the wheels and tires) are somewhat lacking. That being said - the Frame is solid, compliant and makes for a great all around machine.
