    Good job! Pivot Cycles Demo This Sat at SoMo!

    Yes! We're finally gonna hold a demo right at the Pima Canyon entrance. Sat, Dec 14 from 9 to 3. We'll have the East Coast demo fleet (sprinter & trailer) so come on out and ride the bikes on the same trails we do all our testing on! Bring your helmet & riding gear along with photo ID (drivers license) and credit card. See you there

    I tried the 429C at McDowell a few weeks back and it's a terriffic bike, but a little beyond my means right now with 2 kids in college. Will you have any aluminum versions at SoMo? Thanks...
    26FS & 29Rigid... best of both worlds

    All of our demo bikes are built up with Shimano kits. We'll have Les's available in 29er and 27.5 versions.

    Seriously, can I hold a Firebird 27.5 Large for 9a? I'd like to show up at 7a and ride for up National on MY bike so I have as direct of a comparison between it and the Bird that I can have. Otherwise, I'm sure I'll have to show up at 8a and wait in line and have no real comparison between the two.

    Demos are 1st come, first serve affairs. We've tried the reservation thing before and it always blows up in our face. I have NO idea how busy this demo will be but expect it to be hopping...

    I don't need to demo a Pivot. Every single model I have ever ridden has blown my mind. If I go, I'll just feel sad that I don't own one. Maybe I will change that one day. Firebird 27.5 is what I need. If they ever offer that thing in carbon, I'll have no choice.
    What do we want? TIME TRAVEL! When do want it? THAT'S IRRELEVANT!

    They do. It's called a Mach 6!

    hey Big O just do your comparison in reverse. Ride the Firebird first, and then ride your bike. that is still back to back!

    That's a thought as well but I still don't have the desire to wait in a line for the chance to MAYBE demo a bike...

    You never know. I happened to ge riding at PMP several weeks ago. When I got back to the lot, Pivot was set up. I walked up and was riding a Mach 6 in 10 minutes.

    ^^^^ They bring like 50 bikes. You'll be fine. The Mach 6 is my dream bike. I say that as an owner of a Firebird.

    Me too. Rode XL Mach 6 on Mormon National loop. I felt the climbs were easier compared to my Stumpy 26 Evo. Overall smooth bike. Good job out there guys and thanks for the socks!!

    I liked looking and shot the breeze with a couple people but after thinking it over I decided:

    1. No bike is gonna make me any better. My weakness is my brain and my legs. No bike's gonna help them.
    2. Even if I liked it I couldn't afford it.
    3. Chances would've been pretty good that I would have broken something on it and then had to pay to fix a bike that I don't get to ride again.

    So, I took a leisurely stroll up National and had my ass soundly handed to me. I should stop being optimistic when climbing National. It'll save me a lot of frustration.

    Nice seeing that 27.5 DH rig, though!

    Looked like a pretty good turn out when I was there a bit later on, (I showed up at about 2:15pm). I didn't demo anything, but I asked just about everyone I came across their thoughts, and it was largely positive.

    Side note: @big0mike, I took my brother and bro-in-law for their second time on National, and the trip up all but completely wasted my bro-in-law, (though to be fair to him, he did end up sick today, so I'm guessing he had a bug then too...)
