We treated our new super lightweight aluminum frame to a complete Shimano equipment featuring a 30-speed rear derailleur with XT components and hydraulic disc brakes! Durability and reliability is what it is all about!
Ghost SE 5000 Hardtail 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.
Continuous Cable Housing: The derailleur cables have continuous cable housings. Great long-term shift performance is guaranteed by eliminating any negative effects dirt might cause in the derailleur cables.
Postmount Direct: PM Direct’s screwless design and simplified adjustability has become the new standard. Mounting the brake caliper directly onto to the post results in a clean look and optimum heat transfer.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eLIASS Отличный байк за свои деньги.
Рекомендую к покупке. В России за такие деньги сложно купить что-то стоящее...по нему сразу видно немецкую породу и качество изготовления :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by SturdyAl Perfect for singletrack play
Very good value for money for getting into some singletrack mountain biking. I'm a roadie really, but enjoyed a few trails on a borrowed Kona and decided to kit myself up for some more regular stuff.
The Ghost is a well built machine with good components - almost certainly not good enough for serious off-roaders but copes perfectly well with the singletrack found at Cannock Chase, Coed-y-Brenin, etc.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BrusselsBlue Fast but too stiff
Now had the bike about a month and been out both on the road and trails. Good service from CRC as usual although the discount could not be applied at the point of order. No problems – a quick call to support at CRC fixed the problem. So first the good:
Looks - in Matt Black it is stunning with a slightly aggressive/industrial look - especially as I added Wellgo Flat pedals in Red. The frame is super stiff so acceleration and speed for the machine are amazing, especially on the road or nice flat hard off road. Geometry is good and cockpit position suits me fine. Word of caution, I am 5' 7" and was recommended 17" frame, it would have been too small – I took 19” and I get away with it. Shimano shifting is smooth although gearing feels a little on the low side so downhill or fast on flat, it takes a little of the potential away.
The RST fork is light and adequate but when locked it has close to no play as opposed to a Rockshox. Other than that little niggle, I can’t complain too much and am pleasantly surprised by it.
The not so good
Main one – but a big one - The frame is stiff and I mean super stiff. Which means the back end is kicking at the slightest impact – even on the road if you had a few low pot holes. The tyres were up to 40 when I received it out of the box,- too high – tyres need to run nearer 30 which means more resistance tyre to ground.
Even with less air, the bounce is still there, so you need to learn to ride the bike in a different way keeping off the saddle as much as possible – which can be counterproductive at times. Bounce can be so bad on hard single-track it bounces you off the pedals.
Would I recommend it – depends. Long hard flat surfaces where the stiffness is irrelevant and gives the speed or soft ground off road where the stiffness will be absorbed, yes.
For hard single track or cobbles – only if you can be in out of the saddle like a cat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Martialou Très bon vélo
Je reviens de ballade avec ce vélo. Nerveux,vitesse qui passe souplement.
Je ne suis pas déçu par mon choix.
Seulement je suis obligé d'acheter un collier de selles car celui d'origine se desserre très vite et on ne promène pas pas en VTT avec une pince à deco tout le temps. car la clé à 6 pans ne sert à rien.Le fabricant aurait du prévoir collier de selle ré ajustable avec une clé BTR pour serrage..

Secondo la tabella delle taglie sembra che la taglia piú adatta sia la 44cm. Tuttavia ci teniamo a sottolineare che la tabella delle taglie é indicativa ed é consigliabile provare una bici in un negozio locale e paragonarla con la geometria della bici.
