Singular Gryphon Singlespeed


A drop barred, rigid, big wheeled, singlespeed (or geared) bike – it's not for everyone but some may find it just perfect. It's a 29” wheeled mountain bike for use with drop bars and a rigid fork only. It can run singlespeed thanks to the EBB or also has guides for a full run of cable to use bar mounted gear levers. It’s not really for racing, not for jumping, not specifically for touring or commuting – though you could do any of those things. What it’s really for is just riding – whether a quick spin in the woods or a week long gravel road epic it will be fun on a Gryphon. Inspired by some of the classic drop-bar mountain bikes of old like those designed by Charlie Cunningham, this is a modern take on a classic, if idiosyncratic, style. It's shorter in the top tube than a Swift, and employs a longer head tube. The ideal off-road drop bar riding set-up will put your hands in a similar position when in the drops to what they would be using a flat or riser bar. The Gryphon allows you to do that without resorting to an excessively short or high rise stem.
