Ghost Race 5000 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 by Anonymous Perfect.
If this is in your price range and you think it might be what you're looking for then give it a try. I can't think of a single aspect of this bike that is anything less than pefect, personally. I have the largest size (62cm) and it could have been tailor-made for me. Unfussy, responsive, blisteringly quick and very cool in black. What's not to like?
