Guerrilla Gravity Megatrail All Mountain Full Suspension

DESCRIPTION

As the big mountain liberator, the MEGATRAIL is leading the revolution in trail bike freedom, providing riders with wheel-size choice, full build-kit customization options, and the radical Gravity Mode™. And just like the GG/DH, it’s made right here in Colorado.

As a highly refined and extremely versatile trail bike, the MEGATRAIL is built for everything from conquering high-alpine adventures to getting after it at your local enduro race, or just slaying your after-work rides. And when it’s time to turn the Rad up to 11, Gravity Mode™ provides a 30-second, one-bolt geometry toggle that transforms the bike into a downhill dominator.

The MEGATRAIL isn’t purely focused on downhill domination, though. With extremely well-tuned anti-squat characteristics and mid-stroke support, this is one of the best pedaling bikes on the market.

Frames start at $1925, with complete builds starting at $3495. There are four stock builds--Enduro 1, Enduro 2, Trail 1, and Trail 2--all of which are fully customizable, for spec or wheelsize.

Frame Info & Specs:

  • Modern geometry utilizing a roomy cockpit designed for short stems and wide bars, slack head angle, and low bottom bracket
  • Both front and rear triangles are optimized for each specific wheelsize (26" or 27.5"), giving you the choice to run whatever you want; 27.5" front/26" rear is also possible
  • Building on the lively ride qualities of the GG/DH downhill frame, this design achieves best-in-class pedaling, next-level cornering, and downhill domination
  • Suspension developed with input from Cane Creek for the DB Air CS, and optimized for air shocks, providing support while pedaling, small bump sensitivity, and progression for hard bottom out resistance
  • 150 and 160 mm rear wheel travel, 200 x 57 mm shock
  • 1.5" head tube, Cane Creek Angleset compatible
  • Optional, replaceable ISCG05 chainguide mount
  • 12 x 142 Syntace rear axle
  • High quality Enduro Maxx bearings (they have more balls)
  • Stealth cable routing for adjustable-height seat post
  • Threaded bottom bracket, greatly reduces creaking and loosening (vs press fit)
  • Frame weight: 7 lbs. with hardware (size Medium, no shock)

Frame fittings:

  • 31.6 seatpost
  • 34.9 seatpost clamp
  • 142 mm rear wheel spacing
  • 73 mm BB spacing

Strength:

Burly, Stiff!, really holds its line, climbs very well for an AM/Enduro type of rig, very efficient climber with no noticeable suspension action, absolutely shreds the DH. Versatile in that geometry is adjustable. A 30 second bolt change switches between trail/gravity modes--66.5 head degree angle to 65.5 and lowers bottom bracket to below 13 inches in gravity mode. Want some extra pop and playfulness, change another bolt and you have Super Gravity mode. Corners like no other bike I've ridden!

Weakness:

A bit heavier than carbon wonder bikes-but I don't mind the mild weight penalty. I keep up or beat most when climbing on this thing.

I've been riding aggressively for 25 years and this is the best bike I've ever owned or ridden hands down. It climbs better than my Nomad, especially in Trail Mode. A quick 30 second bolt change at the top of the mountain switches it to Gravity Mode and then it just rips the DH. In just the first few weeks I bested all of my DH times compared to other bikes. The best thing about it is the adjustability. When just ripping around my local stuff, I leave it in trail mode because it climbs so well, but also shreds very well in this setting. If I'm racing or hitting the burlier stuff at the higher elevations, I ride in the Gravity modes and it makes the bike feel like a mini DH rig. The geo and low bottom bracket help the bike corner like no other AM/Enduro bike I've ridden. I'm in my late 40's and I'm beating guys half my age! I go to bed at night thinking about riding and it makes me feel like I'm still a kid. I refuse to grow up in some ways and this bike helps me stay young. I'm in love...

Strength:

(1) Climbs very well relative to it's ability to crush the downhills (2) It's fun to ride in all conditions (3) super rugged/durable - the finish on mine is raw aluminum, so after a crash I just buff it out with a Brillo pad and it's good as new...I wouldn't feel comfortable riding a carbon fiber frame with the same level of aggression (4) ease of maintenance - threaded BB, simple linkage (5) Flexibility - a simple adjustment changes the ride from Trail mode to Gravity mode (6) Looks unique, industrial, not what everyone else is riding.

Weakness:

Never on sale, heavier than carbon

No regrets with this bike. I had the budget for carbon fiber but this bike was just as stiff as the CF bikes I demoed and outperformed them all in every area except weight. It's not the prettiest bike, but I think the designers really hit the geometry sweet spot. From all-day trail rides to bike park, it really does it all.
