We equipped our AMR Plus aluminum frame with all of the finest technical details. On top: an adjustable Fox fork, X-Fusion damper and a hydraulic seat post! The result is a perfect riding feel on the uphill and downhill.
Ghost AMR Plus 5900 Suspension Bike Technologies:
Tapered Headtube: The tapered head tube broadens towards the bottom leading to better force transfer from the fork to the frame. The increased stiffness of the tapered head tube combined with the tapered fork lead to the bicycle’s improved and more direct steering.
Specific Chainstay Length: Specific Chainstay Length means that the chainstays grow with frame size. This system already has a long tradition at GHOST. The principle is easy. Not only do our frames grow in height and in length at the front, but also at the chainstay at exactly the same ratio. This results in a perfectly balanced bike which offers superior riding performance in any frame size.
QR 15: The QR15 axle system for suspension forks is equivalent to the X12 standard for the rear triangle. It combines quick toolfree assembly of a quick-release lever with better rear axle stability at significantly lighter weight.
Pressfit BB: PressFit Bottom Brackets feature bearing shells that are directly pressed – and not screwed - into the bottom bracket housing. The larger housing width allows for a wider down tube. Greater support width results in increased stiffness. The screwless design improves stability and reduces maintenance.
Needle Bearing System: Our Needle Bearing System ensures super sensitive rear triangle performance, as many test results have impressively shown. The technology is both simple and ingenious. The needle bearings are located in the damper eyelet, replacing commonly used bush bearings, and ensure a minimum break-away torque. The low torque results in an outstanding responsiveness to even the smallest bumps.
Anti Squat Technology: Clever positioning of the rear triangle pivot points eliminates squatting during pedaling (anti-squat effect) and offers efficient power transmission without unwanted bobbing. Traction is improved and negative forces are eliminated.
X-12 System: Thanks to the X-12 rear-axle standard, it makes sense to use a through-axle system on a wider spectrum of bicycles. The Syntace X-12 system is light and yet super stiff because the hub axle is clamped tightly into the rear triangle under great axial tension.
Balance Center of Gravity: Due to the low bottom bracket and a central damper position, the center of gravity is central and low. The perfect weight distribution guarantees neutral and balanced handling.
Ghost Custom Setup: Our Full Carbon Monocoque Rocker features a One Piece Design. It also increases rear triangle stiffness and reduces the total weight. Form follows function in the most beautiful way!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Puddlebasher This really is value for money
Took delivery of AMR 5900 Plus late Dec 2013. Unbelievable value for money. Quality first class. Spent a long time looking for the right bike in an overpriced product market, saw 'Chain' had these on offer and went for it.
Some people say support your local bike shop and generally I agree with this, but the price along with 'Chain's' excellent service and back up made my decision a no brainer.
The only thing to look out for is when the suspension is in Downhill mode initially I got a few pedal strikes, a slight adjustment to riding style was needed.
If anyone is considering a purchase and looking for a bargain look no further!
