    Ghost Kato 7 27.5 hardtail bike any good ?

    I am looking at a Ghost Kato 7 hardtail bike. (27.5)
    The components seem to be good.
    Shimano SLX 11 speed, rockshox fork, Shimano brakes.
    I am not familiar with the ghost hartails.
    The Kato FS 7 as well as other ghost full suspension bikes have received
    great reviews. Just haven't seen anything on the hardtails though.
    Price wise I see no advantage, just better components compared to
    specialized and Trek.
    Anybody have a Ghost hardtail?
    Any feed back or suggestions appreciated.

    I just picked up a Kato 7.7 full suspension a few days ago. Will post up my feeble thoughts after this weekend's ride if that helps any. Have heard great things about the bike and you are correct, they offer great 'stock' componetry for the price. saves ALOT of $$$ on future upgrades. One of the main reasons I bought one.

    I wonder why there isn't a Ghost discussion forum on this site? (or did I miss it : / )

    I'd lean towards a giant fathom. Giant makes pretty good alloy frames for their budget bikes and it comes with a better fork. These other bikes your looking at likely have a slightly nicer frame and fork.

    My son and I were looking to get a couple of hardtails and did all the requisite research and decided on the Fathom 1's. The Frame and components what was the deciding factor. Better bang for the buck. IMO enjoy the search
