    The Pivot Mach 6 is the best 27.5(650b) bike out! Haters will hate...

    Chris that's an awesome rig. What is the component set up?
    Can't wait your ride report. Bring it on to Mt Kiara KL, I'm sure that will be the right habitat for Mach 6

    A friend of mine just bought that bike and switched out the fox for the Pike. Unfortunately he's been waiting for the Pike so is currently unable to ride the bike!

    Out of curiosity, what made you go with the Pike?

    Nice bike for sure.

    Great build. Wow. Very nice. I really enjoyed the detailed build and pics on your blog.

    I also dig the name: Two wheels good.... Indeed. (And I'd have to agree with the "Four wheels bad" part too,, if you're talking about quads.)

    The Mach 6 might be the best looking bike out there right now. Pivot really knows how to design a bike. I demoed one in September and loved it. A tad out of my price range or it would be at the top of my list.

    Are you sure on that weight? That's almost "too" light to believe. I'm not saying you're incorrect, its just that is lighter than the magazine reviews came out with.

    11.9kgs = 26.24lbs without pedals.

    The MTBR test Mach 6 was reported as 26.5lbs without pedals.

    Just curious. Have you put it on a scale? I mean that's lighter than my TRc and that frame weighs less than 5 lbs. Just saying

    We weigh the full bike in the workshop after it was built. It shows 11.9 kg. Should have taken a photo. Will do that next time.

    Atl-biker, we indeed have nice trails here. M6 is the best bike I ever ridden. It really climb like XC and down like DH. Awesome bike!
