This is a 150mm travel enduro bike that has everything but the kitchen sink included in its spec. Impressive x 2.

Ghost Asket 4 AL – £1,699.99 – £1,149.99

Save 32%! And now for something completely different; a hardtail that isn’t for XC racing or efficient marching over hill and vale, this is a progressively shaped hardtail for hooning down stuff in the woods. Obviously because it is a mountain bike it can be piloted around xc loops but its heart will always be pining for the, er… pine trees.

Currently available for only £1,149.99!
