After only riding retro for a while I figured it was time to ride a modern bike as well, so one of the retro's has made way for this Ghost ASX.
The 120mm of travel each end is most welcome! It's not a light bike (32lbs-ish) and my retrobikes weigh almost 10lbs less, but it's comfortable, solid, stable, fun to ride, and actually faster in most respects than my other bikes.
Forks are Suntour Raidon Air EL, not my first choice but they seem to perform just as well as similar offerings from Rock Shox etc, just not quite as plush as Fox Forks.
Rear Shock is an X-Fusion model, also a new one to me but so far so good, x-fusion stuff seems to get good reviews.
Brakes are Tektro HDC300, I thought I would be swapping them straight out for something else, but I'll be damned if they aren't every bit as powerful as the Hope M4/Mini brakes I previously had
