At Kissing Crows Cyclery we usually describe the All-City Gorilla Monsoon as a hyper-wide-tire cross/gravel bike. While Monsoon comes stock with 27.5 x 2.4" tires - certainly in the mountain spectrum, it maintains a surprisingly cross-like geometry. We think this distinction is important. With drop bar mountain bikes now on the scene it's important to note what sets Gorilla Monsoon apart from it's wide tire family. A steeper head tube angle, higher bottom bracket, and shorter chainstay than your average hardtail, means that Gorilla is lively, punchy through the corners, and that it climbs well. This bike absolutely hauls! If backroad exploration, wide-tire/all season commuting, and 'underbiking' down your local singletrack sounds like your cup of tea, you should be looking STRONGLY at the Gorilla. Gorilla Monsoon is the rigid 90's mtb revival of your dreams!
