We have been eagerly following the progress of Colorado-based Guerrilla Gravity ever since the initial prototypes of the GGDH downhill bike, the young company's first offering. When we went to visit their factory/shop in Denver at the end of 2013, we were intrigued to find an aggressive trail bike in the late stages of development as well.

Today, Guerrilla Gravity are releasing the MEGATRAIL (it sounds better in all caps), a mid-travel trail/enduro/all-mountain/do-it-all bike that looks to follow in the footsteps of its bigger brother, the GGDH. The Megatrail is based around the same concept as the DH bike, putting fun first with a roomy cockpit, low bottom bracket, relatively short chainstays, and a slack head angle.

The frame employs a single-pivot, linkage-driven suspension layout providing 150mm (5.9-inches) of rear wheel travel, which has been developed together with Cane Creek for the DBair CS and optimized for air shocks in general. The design goal was to create the perfect mix of small bump compliance, big hit absorption, and pedal efficiency, something Guerrilla Gravity feel they have been able to achieve. High quality Enduro Maxx bearings are used at all pivot locations.

Diving deeper into the details, we find a 142/12mm Syntace axle in the rear, a straight 1.5-inch head tube (giving riders the option to run a Cane Creek Angleset if they want a slacker front end), internal cable routing for stealth-style dropper posts, and a threaded 73mm bottom bracket. There is an E2 front derailleur mount, as well as an optional ISCG5 mount if you want to run a frame mounted chainguide/bashguard. Guerrilla Gravity is also offering a 42-tooth cassette add-on dubbed the "BFC" for those wanting more range out of their 1X drivetrains.

The Megatrail is available with both 26 and 27.5-inch wheels (a 27.5/26 front/rear combo is also possible), where both the front and rear triangles are specific to each wheel size in order to keep the bottom bracket and headtube heights constant. Frames start at $1,925 (without shock), while four complete build kits are available from $3,495 with some customization options.

We'll be throwing a leg over the Megatrail shortly, and we'll be bringing you our detailed ride impressions and additional specs when we do. The bike still has a few secrets to reveal...
