Moots 5 vs Pivot Mach 5
Plese, help me!
Pivot Mach 5 vs Moots Cinco!
I ride always for a technical sections, and ride all day, 24h solo, etc...
Custom Kent Eriksen 5" travel bike. The Cinco's brother from another mother! Best part is it only costs a couple hundred bucks more from Kent built to fit you. I don't have one, yet. I do want to add one to my garage though for stuff that is rougher then the YBB can handle.

I mean look at the Cinco!!
Who wants a Pivot if the cinco is an option
Ok I've never ridden a Pivot, but I do ride a Cinco (and have owned and ridden a variety of other bikes Ellsworth Truth, Stork Rebel Carbon, Santa Superlight, Intense Spider etc.)
The Moots is always the bike I want to ride
It might not be the best for 24 hour racing, thats probably more suited to a lighter weight 4 inch travel full susser?
The Cinco is perfect for trail riding...it needs to have the rear suspension on pro-pedal setting for climbing, and then unleashes on flat ground or downhills with the rear shock fully working...it is a singletrack monster, and comfortable enough for all day
Its emphasis is on maximum fun, rather than competitive X-country racing...would be perfect for Super-D
You can build it to 26 pounds with light components
As far as custom sizing, I think this is an unnecessary expense unless you are not a normally proportioned person...get a stock size it will be just as good
I would try to ride both and see what you like.
