Show Description

Looking to enter the 29er world? The Tacana 2 gets you off to a fast-rolling start. Ghost's performance-grade aluminum frame is a solid performer: compliant enough to soak up road buzz, with an oversized headtube and broad tubing for outstanding torsional strength. The RST Blaze fork features a remote lockout for sustained logging road climbs. Massive 29in. wheels with burly Michelin rubber eat up obstacle-ridden terrain and bite into loose sections of gravel and horrific mud. As stopping is just as important as rolling, Ghost opted for powerful Tektro hydraulic disc brakes. The result? You can brake later with confidence in mud, rain or grit. Tried and true Shimano Acera shifters keep shifts clean and precise over the long haul, while a versatile triple crank ensures you'll find the right gear every time.

  • Ghost 7000 series aluminum frame is broadly shaped and oversized for added strength and durability.
  • Oversized headtube increases stiffness under hard accelerations and cornering.
  • RST Blaze RL front fork with 100mm of travel and bar-mounted remote lockout.
  • Custom Ghost 29in. wheelset with aggressive Michelin Country Race 2.1 tires.
  • Shimaon Acera and Altus 8-speed groupset.
  • Shimano FCM triple ring crank is at home in bike lanes and on singletrack.
  • Tektro ACC hydraulic disc brakes are powerful and reliable.
  • Ghost brand seat, seatpost, stem and other components are durable and trail ready.
  • 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.
