All-City describes their Gorilla Monsoon as "Monster" - their, "most densely featured bike ever, fully hitting everything on our checklist for a steed that can take us far into the unknown in comfort, style and elegance."
This bike's limits only exist in your imagination. 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.
Monsoon 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.
Some of you will want to throw 650b x 47c’s in it, 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.
The Gorilla Monsoon has front and rear thru-axles and fender mounts. It is specifically compatible with the Surly-8 and 24-Pack racks. If you want to get extra rowdy and stick a dropper post on it, there is stealth routing for such an act. This bike has 27.5 x 2.4" tire clearance, but can run down to 650b x 47c OR if you want that 700c lifestyle, 42mm tires are the max there. So, there's pretty much endless options for whatever crazy adventure you want to go on!
