Re: When will Ghost bikes be available to purchase?

When will you be getting the Ghost bikes in so we can purchase from you?

Welcome to the community and thanks for the question!

Due to many factors, it looks as though much of our Ghost bike inventory has been delayed until sometime in May. Manufacturing volumes, operational considerations, processing times, and shipping schedules all play a role in when we receive product from a vendor. Was there a specific model of Ghost bike you were looking for?

Hopefully this helps, thanks!

Yes, I had been into the Northville store which did not have much inventory.  After evaluating bikes I am interested in the Ghost Square Cross Base U or the Square Cross Essential.  Depending on the price differential that will ultimately determine which one I buy.  I am not in urgent need but would like to get it in May so I can have it as the weather improves.  I am fine to wait but what I want to avoid is waiting to find out it is not available and I cannot get other bikes b/c of inventory issues.  Thx for your quick response.

You're welcome! Thanks for the clarifying information. We'll see what we can find out for you about those models and we'll circle back with you here in the community.

We appreciate your patience in advance!

Thanks for your patience as we tracked down this info for you. It does not look like we will be carrying the Ghost Square Cross Base U or the Square Cross Essential this year. We will be carrying the Ghost Square Cross 1.8 bike and the good news is that we are expecting to see that bike in stock at the beginning of April.

Hopefully this helps, thanks!

I really appreciate your quick responses and help!.  Can you tell me the difference between the Base and Essential and the 1.8?  I went to the Ghost website but do not see the 1.8 listed.  I thought maybe the 1.8 is replacing one of those or maybe it is in addition.  Do you know approximately what the price for it will be.  Not holding you to anything just trying to determine will it fit within my budget.  Lastly, do you know if I can place an order now for it or do I have to wait until it is listed on the REI website?  If so, how can I get an alert when the bike will be included on your website for order?  

I am 5'10/11 and my pants inseam is somewhere between 30 and 32 depending on the pants.  That said, I would say if we use 31" it would be a good target so would I order a "M" bike?

Thank you!  Randy

Hi John,

Are you still expecting the Ghost Square Cross 1.8 to be in stock this month?

Thank you!

Thanks for reaching out! 

We checked on the Ghost Square Cross 1.8 bike and, unfortunately, it looks like that shipment has been delayed until July. Additionally, we do not have the ability to send alerts when the product is ready or to pre-order items. Your best bet is to check back on REI.com around that time to see when the bike is available to purchase.

@wvu500 

We apologize for not getting back to you sooner! In terms of the difference between the Ghost Square Cross Essential U, the Ghost Square Cross Base U, and the Ghost Square Cross 1.8 are mostly contained in the different components and group sets used. The Base U and 1.8 are very similar with the Base U using a few upgraded components and the 1.8 having a broader range in the crankset. In terms of which size would fit you best, we would recommend a size medium, as the standover height is just under 31" and should fit you well. From what we can see, it looks like the Ghost Square Cross 1.8 we will be carrying in 2021 will come in just below the $800 mark.

Hopefully this helps, thanks!

Hey John, I suppose there isn't a chance REI will be getting any of the Road Rage series in stock in the near future?

Thanks for reaching out!

Unfortunately, at this time, we do not have plans to carry the Ghost Road Rage series.  If you'd like us to make some suggestions of similar gravel-oriented bikes from other brands we would be happy to do so.

Thanks!
