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.

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.

        Bike was easy to put together. I use it to ride to and from work (about 12 miles round trip) and I love it. Decided to go with a gravel grinder because New Mexico roads suck. Definitely don't regret the purchase.
