Expirience with the Ghost Lanao Universal 27.5

Ghost Lanao Universal 27.5 Review In terms of riding in light terrain, the Ghost Lanao Universal 27.5 is an absolute banger. The lively character invites you to throw the bike around with ease. The seating position does not manage to be too athletic, nor too upright. It´s moderate character is likely to suite the vast majority of bikers. Another strong argument needs to be mentioned: the coherent geometry and the grippy tires will make you smile all the way to the bottom of the descent. We like: 5 years warranty on the frame!
