Ghost Tacana 3 Bicycle - Unisex
A 29'er cross-country whip for rolling over big terrain, flowy singletrack or just riding here to there. The aluminum hardtail frame with XC geometry is stable, playful and totally agile. 29'ers roll over pretty much everything, and are robust enough to survive the odd botched line or landing. The fork features adjustable rebound for a nuanced ride and a bar-mounted lock-out suits hammering or climbing. Discs provide powerful braking and modulation in the wet and dry, and are super easy to bleed if/when the time comes. A mixed groupset of Alivio, Acera and Deore is reliable and smooth, while the mega sized 11-34t cassette mountain-goats the gnarliest climbs.
