    Pivot vault geometry

    I'm thinking of getting a cyclocross bike that would be comfortable for occasional all-day riding on the roads. Could anyone who's ridden a pivot vault tell me what they thought of its geometry? Is it upright or would it start hurting after more than a few hours?

    Oh thanks, there was a bit more info on the RX geometry. It seems to be more race oriented, but I'm hoping it's at least as comfortable as my last Synapse. Sadly I can't be sure from the geo charts, and nobody seems to be selling them nearby.

    Seems like a pretty cool bike. You can probably have the shop set up the stem up high (leave the steerer tube longer) for a more upright position. I like that it has hidden canti mounts as well as disc, and also 130/135mm drops.

    Are u suggesting I get the frame alone and have it assembled? Wouldn't the tube already be cut at the shop?

    All I'm saying is, set the stem higher. I don't know if Pivot completes come with the fork precut or not. That would be a question for Pivot or your shop.
