THE PERFECT CHOICE FOR YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE
Author Andreas Maschke has already fallen in love with the Ghost ROAMR at Eurobike. The full-bodied travel mountain bike with Pinion P1.18 is made for long adventures off the beaten path. In the late autumn, the long-distance biker was on the road for the Enduro mountain bike magazine to a first overnighter test in the Dolomites. His conclusion about the Pinion bike sounds enthusiastic:
The wet dream of any bike-packing enthusiast!
The Ghost ROAMR an incredibly well thought-out adventure bike, one to turn to for a weekend or a few days away to discover nature, letting you take every single imaginable trail – and have fun doing so.

Ghost offers two mountain bikes for Micro-Adventures in 2017: the Fully H AM RX AL (tested under the name ROAMR) comes on 27.5 “wheels and with 140mm travel at the front and rear. The bike has been thought through to the smallest detail and trumps with sensible features like USB charging socket at the cockpit, reliable steel damper and our carefree Pinion P1.18 transmission.
The hardtail Roket X provides 130mm at the front and a dropper seatpost for endless fun on adventorous trails. The new, lightweight Pinion C1.12 transmission is used here for smooth gear changes in any terrain. Ghost adds a boost: thanks to the Boost front and rear, a 29 ” wheelset can easily turn the bike into a fast race bike.
