Today We Introduce the Gorilla Monsoon


Today All-City takes another step toward a brighter future with the introduction of the Gorilla Monsoon. You can head over to the web page <---------- to find out all about what it is, but for this post we'd like to talk a little bit more about "why" it is.

We love taking our rides ever further, and we love pushing our bike design to their logical (to us anyway) conclusions. The Gorilla Monsoon takes our love of riding drop bar bikes off-road and removes all of the limitations associated with doing so on other bikes in our line.


It’s a bike that blends the best of the categories of cross, touring, and mtb into one slam-bang package of goodness. On the mountain bike side of things it can fit a 27.5 x 2.4” tire, has thru-axles and stealth dropper post routing. On the touring / bike packing front you’ll find three bottle mounts, the ability to add a front derailleur, standard rack and fender mounts, and provisions for Surly’s excellent 8 & 24 pack racks. From our cross lineup we’ve taken our sweet geometry and adapted it for the new duties that this bike is capable of taking on.

If you’re wondering about the fork and headtube choice, the answer is that we happen to really like steel forks, outside of racing applications that’s our preference. That, and there aren’t really any carbon forks out there that will do all the things we wanted this fork to do, and we hope you’ll agree that the fork crown is pretty awesome to boot.

What you end up with is our most feature rich, shred anything, go anywhere, carry whatever bike to date. Ready to take you and your adventures as far as your legs will carry you.

The Gorilla Monsoon arrives at Dealers in early April. The frameset is $850 and the complete is $1999. Head over to the web page for full specs

Looks rad! Put deposit down at my LBS today!
- When will it be available?
- Seat post collar diameter?
- since specs are listed a bit differently in different blogs - can you please confirm the following:
  - front - through axle, 12 or 15 mm?
  - seat post diameter - 27.2 or 30.9?
  - disc brake mounts - front is IS and rear is post mount, is that correct?
  - straight headtube, regular 1 1/8, not 44mm - correct?

Thank you!
