Guerrilla Gravity The Smash 29er
150mm MRP fork
140mm travel rear, Push 11-6 Rear shock - This thing is absolutely amazing
Shimano Zee Brakes front/rear
I9 Enduro 305 wheels/hubs Cush Core front and rear, but I'll likely be taking out the front
XT shifter/derailleur with E13 TRS+ 9-46 cassette
185mm Bike Yoke Revive Dropper
RaceFace bar/stem/cranks

Was basically my dream build, the bike is a bit on the heavy side based on current top end builds, but for my weight I don't care. I'm 245lbs geared up and the bike is right at 33lbs with OneUP EDC Pump/Tool and a small frame pack. Guerrilla Gravity is a small company in CO, they hand build their bikes to your spec etc. Their CS is amazing and this beast climbs awesome for what it is. It'll take anything I throw at it on the descents and just keeps on wanting to go faster.

The irony of these modern 29'ers / downhill bikes is that they're so close to being enduro / dirtbikes without engines, that I'm surprised one of the Big 5 don't in fact use their expertise in dirt bike chassis designs and suspension to create a MTB sub-brand.

What does anyone know about the Ghost brand of bikes?

I came across someone who's selling the 'Square' model that I may put a bid in.







The frame design looks interesting and the components are solid mid-grade Shimano, but overall information on them is sparse! I can't even find a brand subforum on MTBr.com or Reddit.





What light info I could find leads to it being a small, but respected manufactured from Germany. One of the founders may have been one of the founders/engineers and Canyon left(?) Sold exclusively in the US through REI.
