    Pivot Mach 6

    I was just offered an opportunity to purchase a 2014 Mach 6 XT/Xtr pro build the temptation is killing me and have until Monday morning to make the decision and bike would be here in about two weeks!

    I currently have a Carbine 27.5 and although I really like it,it still is a conversion and am running a Fox Float 36 this was a nice alternative to experiencing a 27.5 and found to my liking.I had ridden a 5.7 carbon recently and was really impressed with the DW link and was considering for next season.I would really prefer just the frame and fork,all my components are fairly new,but won't know if that is doable yet with this early release,again won't know until Monday.either way what choice do I have how can I refuse!

    Pivot Mach 6

    Do it.
    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.

    This frame is exactly what I was looking for!!! It's what the Burner and HDR are not but should have been. Carbon (yes on HDR but not Burner), DW-link, 13.66 BB, slack 66 HA, less than 17" Chainstays, less than 23" ETT (22.85" Med) good for me, 16" seattube (again good for my shortish legs), and 6" travel. Wow. I read somewhere about a $3k frame price. YIKERS!!!!!!!! I wonder what the true weight will be? Still, this is just what the doctor ordered.

    Top selling bike shops got an early release for 40 bikes total,my shop happen to be one and I had a day to make the decision to get order in before deadline last Monday,a very easy one to make and was about sizing,I have a large Stealth frame kit coming,Fox 34 Float Fork,X Float shock,KS Lev Integra dropper,HS and BB for under 4k,hard to say no! This is to replace my Carbine which will be sadly missed but have been eyeballing Pivot for some time and after spending some time on a 5.7 really warmed up to the feel of the DW link.

    Why not run a 5.7 with a 140mm fork or an angle adjust headset?
