    Ghost FS bikes from Torpedo 7?

    Does anyone have any feedback on these bikes? They seem like good value, parts spec is good but how are the frames quality wise?

    Cheers

    My mate stepped up and got the better spec bike. Order on Tuesday night got it the following Wednesday. Bike went together in about 30 minutes. Parts spec is VERY good value. Frame quality looks good. Ride quality is good..... but he's still getting it dialed in.

    Will give you in update in a few months if I remember.

    FWIW
    Ghost bikes have got pretty favorable reviews in German magazines. Sounds like the company knows what they are doing.

    My friend Sabine Spitz rides for Ghost and she finised second in the worlds this year. I know the engine has a lot to do with winning (or finishing second) but she couldnt have done it without the bike

    Yeah, she would have looked pretty funny running.

    I don't know though, if she came second maybe we should be looking at the bike the winner was riding? :P.

    you know what these Germans are like, fanatical about their gear. Last year in NZ she was riding an American bike with american parts - the rear deraliur crapped out on the fist lap. Now day she say if its not made in Germany...its made somewhere else

    Actually the AMR9500 is very good at $4129au. Full xtr, crossmax sl's and 11.7kg.

    That would be very hard to beat anywhere down here.

    So, I'm curious, which german-made derailleur is she using now?
