18 months ago we introduced you to the Monkii cage and it found its way onto many a bike, some people just use them to hold a bottle but others carry cooking kit, shelters and no doubt the odd bottle of wine along the way. Although the Monkii cage was and in my opinion, still is a great product I always wanted a bigger one. I mentioned a larger version to Miles Hutchings who imports Monkii products into the UK. Miles promised to talk to the Monkii manufactures about it … and that was that.

Fast forward 18 months …. and out of the blue guess what falls through my letterbox? No, not dog poo wrapped in newspaper but a big brown jiffy bag containing a prototype Gorilla cage (like a Monkii but bigger).

Standard Monkii and Gorilla … quite a size difference.

The Gorilla uses the same quick release fittings (Monkii nuts / clips) as its smaller primate cousin but rather than 2 attachment points there’s 3. The mount spacing is the same as Salsa use for Anything cages but it can also be mounted using just 2 points, so can be made to fit just about anywhere. The version in the picture could be described as a final prototype, there may be a few tweaks before full production but any that do take place will be minor.

13L – possible but not recommended

Sadly, I can’t give you an eta at present but I can say that hopefully they’ll come in at less than £20 … I’ll let you know more when I do.

Gorilla cages are now available.

The Titan Ground Anchor.

To most upright members of society, a tent peg will receive less thought than what they’re having for their dinner. Conversely, to the ardent bikepacker, the seemingly humble tent peg is a source of untold fascination. Length, diameter, material and obviously weight all require careful scrutiny if the Holy Grail of tent pegs is ever […]
