Mongoose Selous Sport Gravel Bike
Gravel grinding, cyclocross, as well as commuting are all realms that the Mongoose Selous Sport is completely at home. The Selous Sport features Mongoose Gravel Grinder double-butted aluminum tubing for both strength and light weight while the aluminum fork is strong, durable, and delivers a responsive ride. Mongoose wisely equipped the frameset to clear 40c width tires plus routed all the cables along the top tube to keep them out of the way of mud and grime. The 2x9-speed drivetrain features Shimano Sora components for dependability and reliability while the FSA Vero Compact crankset features 50/34T chainrings for a broad range of gearing to handle the diverse terrain that is the Selous Sport's stomping grounds. Confident braking in even the sloppiest conditions is assured courtesy of the Promax mechanical disc brakes with 160mm rotors front and rear. The wheels feature Alex DP-23 tubeless ready rims that are laced to VP aluminum hubs set up for quick release front and rear. A pair of 700x40c WTB Nano tires are voluminous as well as fast-rolling for superb performance on asphalt as well as dirt.

    Nice bike for the money. I live on a gravel road and work in in a rural area and most of my riding is on both gravel and pavement; this bike handles both well. I bought this primarily for a trainer and beater to leave at work during the week, and don't regret the purchase.

      Comments about Mongoose Selous Sport Gravel Bike:

      I've been a casual mountain biker for years, but I recently got back into it more seriously. I realized I needed a road bike for longer training rides but I hate riding on the road (because of cars) but with this bike I can link together roads with railtrails and doubletrack and even light singletrack. I've put 500 miles on it do far and it's performed excellently. Love the 40c tires, but looking forward to upgrading to tubeless when these wear out. It could use a lower gear for the hard climbs, or I can just build some more strength. Overall it's a great entry level cross/gravel/touring/commuter rig.

        Comments about Mongoose Selous Sport Gravel Bike:

        For my purposes this bike is perfect. I love it for commuting and casual riding. It rides great off-road as well as on. It's comfortable too. I have a fairly rough commute of 10 miles each way to work, three days a week and I'm very happy with it. I had to make some adjustments initially when I received it, but now that I've tweaked it, I'm so happy with it. Shifts perfectly, rides perfectly, everything. Just be sure you know how to assemble and adjust a bike or take it to a bike shop for assembly.

            Bike is ok. I could have bought one local for what I paid for this, I thought it was going to be a better bike. It is not bad but not as good as was expected. Good thing it was on sale.

              Comments about Mongoose Selous Sport Gravel Bike:

              I looked high and low for an affordable Cyclocross style bike. While there are MANY well-equipped bike above the $1500 mark, there are very few in the sub-$1000 category. I was drawn to the Mongoose Selous Sport because of the price, aluminum construction, decent components group, and the fact that it new to Cyclocross/gravel riding. I'm a 51 year-old former BMXer/mountain biker. This bike fits my needs PERFECTLY. FITS GREAT (I'm 6' tall, 34" inseam, and I chose the 58cm size), rides great, fairly lightweight (compared to my mountain bikes), and looks great with the durable gloss powder-coated finish....even the Mongoose graphics are coated over. NICE. If you're an occasional rider looking for a good all-around bike, and you're on a budget, you won't be disappointed. If you're weight conscious, snooty about components, and have lots of extra $$$$ to spend, by all means, have a look at the higher end offerings. Truth told, you and I will probably being sharing the same bike path. ;)

                Go for it. I bought this for riding this winter. Its inexpensive, durable, fun to ride, the 40c tires role well, who cares about wight as long as you can get out and ride in the winter.

                Good for the price

                By Brian

                from Riverside, CA

                About Me Avid Cyclist

                Comments about Mongoose Selous Sport Gravel Bike:

                I've been looking for a gravel-grinder, all-road bike to add to the stable. When this went on sale for $450 shipped I couldn't pass it up. I haven't had a chance to ride it yet, but considering it's aluminum with a straight alum fork I expect it to be unforgiving and quick. I stripped it down to the frame to swap on parts I have and take some weights. Here are some initial thoughts:
                The frame build is about what you'd expect for this price point. The welds aren't pretty but functional. The headtube is not tapered, despite the description. Fortunately it is 44mm, so you can run a tapered fork with a special headset.
                The wheels are massive and heavy. I measured 23mm inside the rims, hence the "23" in the rim name. Switching out to moderately-priced 29er wheels will save considerable weight.
                The front derailleur is top-pull and feeds through a pulley mounted at the bottom of the seat tube. I will replace it with a proper top-pull derailleur from Nashbar.
                The crankset is square taper. I didn't know those still existed. I switched out to an old ISIS I have.
                The handlebars are 40cm wide. I prefer much wider and figured I would need to replace them.
                The brake housing is Jagwire compressionless. Nice to see at this price.
                I'm 6' tall with a 32" inseam. I went with the 54cm frame. The dimensions match my road and commuter bikes, though I might eventually replace the 90mm stem with 100mm.
                Here are some weights:
                Front wheel: 1162 grams (2lbs 9 oz)
                Rear wheel: 1332 grams (2lbs 15oz)
                Crank: 680 grams
                BB: 234 grams
                Seatpost: 338g
                Saddle: 343g
                Fork: 793g (1lb 12oz)
                Frame: 4lb 2oz
                Bike: 24.5 lbs

                  Great bike for gravel grinding without the high price of titanium equivalent.
                  Big savings for handy riders who know how to put it together and make adjustments.

                    A good starter gravel bike. A titanium with better groupset would run 6x and up.
                    If you are comfortable with making adjustments to everything on the bike, this is the best deal.
