    First FS bike, Ghost FS 3

    Picked up a new Specialized Pitch a little over 2 months ago to get back in to MTBing, and found out that hard tails are murder on my bike these days, so...

    Did some research on FS bikes, and picked up a '16 Ghost FS 3, my first FS bike.



    Put a few miles on it this weekend, and LOVE it!

    Compared to the Pitch, the fork and brakes are miles better. And my back thanks me for the rear squish. Also love the clutch derailleur as my chain isn't making a racket.

    Love the bike overall so far!

    Thanks.

    Those pedals came off before the first ride. So did the tires.

    I put on Forte Convert pedals, and Schwalbe Hans Dampf tires.
