We sell it with the Fork included at £2350.
Enter the Gryphon.
The mythical mash-up of lion and eagle representing the ostensible clash between dropped handle bars and big knobbly tyres – perfectly harmonious in reality. Released in 2008, at the time many just didn’t get it, however those who did appreciated the virtuous combination of drop bars and big wheels on a smooth riding steel frame. It became a cult favourite. More and more people came to appreciate the comfort and versatility of drop bars with the alchemistic pairing of big fat 29″ rubber. Drawing upon and further evolving the traditions of the legendary bikes of Charlie Cunningham and more contemporaneously Matt Chester, the Gryphon foreshadowed bikes such as the Salsa Fargo and subsequently the advent of ‘gravel’ bikes. The Gryphon was the first production 29″ wheeled, disc braked, steel mountain bike frameset designed for use with a drop handlebar.
The Gryphon Ti takes that proven heritage and elevates it.
