All-City Gorilla Monsoon
Taking their love of riding drop bar bikes off-road to its logical conclusion, All-City presents you with the Gorilla Monsoon. A sweet beast whose only limits are your imagination and will power.
They've taken the capabilities of their famed cross bikes and built a Monster. All-City's most densely featured bike ever, fully hitting everything on their checklist for a steed that can take you far into the unknown in comfort, style, and elegance.
Want to do mixed pavement and single track rides? Put in long days off-road? Do some fire road touring? Camping? Ride across the continent? No problem.
Peep the features: Front and rear thru-axles, front and rear rack and fender mounts, compatibility with Surly-8 and 24-Pack racks, stealth dropper post routing, 27.5 x 2.4” tire clearance (650b x 48 with fenders), signature All-City dropouts, E.D. coating for rust prevention, and three water bottle mounts.
The Gorilla is made from All-City's 612 Select tubing and features a lovely bi-plane crown steel fork. They believe that nothing soaks up bumps or is as durable as a high quality steel fork. For on and off-road touring duties, it is the jam.
Some of you will want to throw 650b x 47c’s in it and that’s cool. The resulting slightly lower BB gives the bike excellent manners when riding with a load and is fully endorsed by us. If you want to run a 700c tire the max is a 42mm tire which will raise your BB by 8mm. 700c x 38 keeps the BB about the same.
As for building it up, there are three cable mounts on the downtube, giving you the option of adding a front derailleur or a dropper post. Here’s the max ring sizes for each setup: 1X = 38T, 2X = 28/42, 3X = 26/36/48.
