Show Description

A classic trekking bike that brings a European flair to Canadian roads and bike lanes. The Shimano components provide smooth shifts and precise velocity control. A 27-speed drivetrain make the hills easier to deal with, and makes the run down the other side a pretty fun ride too. The TR 1800 come with a rear rack that's set-up to accept large touring panniers, a chain guard, front and rear fenders, and (this part is cool) Shimano Dynamo hubs that power both front and rear lights. These aren't like old-time wheel mounted dynamos that added considerable drag. As long as your wheels are spinning, these hubs will power your lights and you won't notice a difference in the energy you're putting in.

  • 7000 series aluminum frame is strong and durable, while keeping the weight low and the cost reasonable.
  • Shimano® Acera SL and Alivio components are excellent mid-range options.
  • Shimano dynamo hubs with front and rear lights included.
  • Continuous cable housing so dirt and grit can't get in to affect shifting performance.
  • Bikes are covered by MEC's Rock Solid 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.
