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.
Gorilla Monsoon is the heavy-hitter in All-City's lineup of drop-bar dirt machines, packing clearance for 27.5 x 2.4 WTB Riddlers and a penchant for roaring pursuits on everything from vast stretches of dirt to backcountry singletrack. The Gorilla's thru-axle frame is forged from All-City's 612 Select chromoly steel and paired with a thru-axle chromoly fork that features mid-blade and crown eyelets for all your front-loading pleasures. Hayes CX Expert mechanical disc brakes and a 1x11 drivetrain keep the Gorilla powerful and light on its feet, while the Salsa Cowchipper bar with 24-degree flair gives you the advantage when things get dicey. Call it a dirt road rambler, a monstercross masher, or an all-road adventurer — with the ability to carry all your gear to the ends of civilization and back there's only one thing left to do. Go. Like a storm across the land, let no obstacle stop you and the Gorilla Monsoon.
Even if you own a different bike for everything, it's still necessary to have one that can do it all. That bike is the Space Horse. It's become a cult favorite because of its classic styling and ability to handle just about any task or terrain. All-City's Space Horse Disc frameset allows you to build your perfect bike with the addition of all-weather control disc brakes. The geometry is a mix of traditional road and randonneur, with a relatively short rear end and a bottom bracket that’s slightly lower than a standard road bike. This gives it both agile handling for riding unbridled and increased stability when loaded. This blend of geometry and 612 Select tubing create a bike that is capable of quick road centuries, gravel racing, commuting, and of course loaded touring. The frame accommodates front and rear racks, fenders, and tires up to 42c in size for the 700c bikes and 45c for the 650B version. It also utilizes a dropout with a replaceable derailleur hanger. All of the classic All-City touches are present: signature brazed-on seat collar, pantographed bottom bracket shell, pump peg, reinforcements on the bottle bosses, and a beautiful lugged crown fork. The fork sports both a double eyelet on the dropout and mid-blade mounts to allow you to use pretty much whatever front rack you wish.
Combine two parts versatility, one part bike-fueled thirst for the open road, and a dash of Minnesota-bred style, and you've got yourself All-City's Space Horse Disc. The 612 Select chromoly frame and fork blend traditional touring and randonneuring geometry for a bike that's at home on a fully-loaded trek across the state or commuting to and from work. The smaller sizes are designed around 650B wheels to offer a better fit to smaller riders. A relatively short rear end and a bottom bracket that’s slightly lower than a standard road bike give it both agile handling for riding unbridled and increased stability when loaded. With the addition of the all-weather control of Promax disc brakes, this Space Horse is without a doubt the best version yet. A complete set of rack and fender braze-ons let you dress up the Space Horse in whatever livery you need for your particular adventure. The long and winding road calls for equipment you can count on, and the SRAM Apex 20-speed drivetrain promises smooth shifts and hill-topping gearing for miles to come. The whole package rolls on a pair of quality WTB rims and VEE Speedster tires that offer unbelievable traction in wet or dry conditions. And all the usual All-City details are present, including a rust-fighting ED coating, a stylish integrated seatpost clamp, and signature All-City dropouts with a removable derailleur hanger.
