Ghost Tacana 5 Bicycle - Unisex
For when you're ready to up your XC game, this super solid 29’er delivers. 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. Single track ready fork features a bar mounted lock-out for extended climbs or city riding. Hydraulic discs provide powerful braking and modulation in the wet and dry, and are a cinch to bleed if/when the time comes. A mixed groupset of Deore and XT is reliable and smooth, while the mega sized 11-36T 10 speed cassette mountain-goats the gnarliest climbs or descents.
- Ghost 7005 series aluminum frame is lightweight, ultra-strong and vibration dampening.
- 29in. wheelset provides a ride that's fast and able to roll over pretty much anything.
