This bike is fully equipped, tuned, and honed for cross-country riding. If you’re looking to transition from a hardtail to a full-suspension bike, the AMR 5900 will offer a nice combo of speed and confidence. The suspension system has a forgiving 120mm of travel and a responsive Climb/Trail/Descend (CTD) 3-position adjustment lever that allows fast adjustment to changing terrain.
- Reinforced, lightweight aluminum frame with hydroformed tubing and specific chainstay length.
- Tapered head tube is wider at the bottom for better force transfer from the fork to the frame. The increased stiffness offers direct, reactive steering.
- Shimano® M596 disc brakes.
- Fox suspension offers 120mm (4.7in.) of travel.
- Needle bearing system in the rear shock eye replace commonly used bushings for minimum break-away torque (less force applied to activate the shock). Allows great small-bump responsiveness.
- Shimano SLX SL, XT, and Deore 596 components.
- Reverse hanger tech (hanger mounted inside the chain stay) offers more direct shifting and less bending stress during shifting.
- Continuous cable housing so dirt and grit can't get in to effect shifting performance.
- Shimano Pressfit BB system. Designed to increase stiffness and support and to reduce needed maintenance.
- This model is not equipped with pedals.
- Schwalbe Nobby Nic 2.25in. tires.
- Bikes are covered by MEC's Rocksolid Guarantee and Bike Service Agreement. You can bring your bike to any MEC Bike Shop for free adjustments and minor maintenance for a year after purchase.
- Ghost Bikes are designed in Waldsassen, Germany. Every model reflects a deep passion for cycling and meticulous attention to detail.

The hub affects a bike’s rolling efficiency. Internally geared hubs require significantly less maintenance.
Cassettes with a smaller range allow you to go faster; a bigger range makes climbing hills easier.
