The Gangly Gibbon
The Gangly Gibbon is Mercer’s interpretation of the South African Full Suspension Trail and Enduro bike. It has been ridden to many local enduro victories and with Dan Dobinson at the helm achieved top honours in Western Cape Masters Enduro in 2018.
Rolling on 29er wheels with boost spacing, the Gibbon has 120mm travel at the rear and is designed to take 140-150mm forks up front. The linkage driven single pivot design is playful and poppy. It’s guaranteed to make you smile!
Fillet brazed from a mixture of Zona and Cro-mor tubing from Columbus, the bike is long and low with short (440mm) chainstays, a no-nonsense threaded 73mm BSA BB and a 44mm headtube. The short seat tube will accept modern, long travel dropper posts and a port at the base of the seattube provides internal routing. The front triangle can house 2 water bottles and there are some nifty storage options in the swing arm for emergency trail tools and tubeless plug kits.
