One Ghost’s Ronin Carbon Fiber Hardtail Ready

When it rains, it pours. We just posted new carbon 29er hardtails from boutique builders Momsen and Chiru, now One Ghost Industries is in on the action. We saw a prototype of this at Interbike, and now founder David Meredith says his One Ghost Ronin is ready to ship in March.

And that sweet full carbon fork? It’s ready, too, but there are only six of them available, so order now if you want the matchy-matchy. There are only seven of each frame size available in the March production run, so those are pretty limited, too.

Jump past the break for pics and info…

Ronin, which means “masterless warrior”, claims to be the ultimate XC weapon…whether that’s endurance, regular or short track XC makes no difference.

The Ronin frame uses a full monocoque frame construction with a BB30 bottom bracket. David says this lets them run a normal BB30 bottom bracket or put an eccentric BB in there to run it as a single speed. Frame/Fork is $1,799 $1,499, and various build kits/complete bikes might be available. Frame only is $1,099.

Of course, you can choose to deck out your One Ghost bike with their own Candy Components parts, which include some pretty good colors for bar, post clamp, headset, etc. Well, except that this uses an internal headset…

I spoke with the distributor in Oregon last week about the Ronin and had a chance to ride it. Simply amazing ride, and it turned quite a few heads. He will build and ship complete bike or just the frame. His online store is http://stores.ebay.com/Will-Sullivan-Cycling

There is also a cyclocross prototype coming in soon. I can’t wait to see it.
