Ghost Race 4900 Road Bike Technologies:
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.
Oversized Headtube: The oversized head tube is able to improve force transfer from the fork to the frame. The broader frame tube structure increases the frame’s torsion strength and ability to better withstand stress.
Active Flex Seat Stay: Flexing seat stays offer a certain amount of vertical give and therefore offer crucial protection the body needs. Each vibration and shock the frame can absorb spares the rider’s muscles unnecessary strain.

Rated 5 out of 5 Make sure you try one before spending £1000 on something else
Done some serious mileage this summer on my Ghost 4900, really impressed how it is the best of both worlds - fast and responsive but comfy on longer rides. There are some great bikes around at the moment, can't see me wanting to upgrade/change for some time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great Alu Bike
I got the 2012 model, exactly the same except wheels now Shimano not Easton.
I 'traded down' from a Cannondale Synapse Carbon Ultegra, but reckon the Ghost is 99% as good, miles better than alu bikes I've had in the past - real quality finish, took 5 mins to set up when delivered (ace job as usual by ChainReaction!)
Lots of competition at this price but really pleased with my choice after test riding Trek, Specialised, Felt and Merida equivalents. Go for it!
