    I indulged myself

    Never thought I would to this extent, but when you've got the bike bug, its inevitable.

    warning - crappy iPhone pics ahead...















    Don't worry, it stayed clean for less than 24hrs.

    Pos rep there that's awesome. Got a similarly sweet Pivot 5.7C today myself. It got dirty about an hour after picking it up.

    Oh nice I demoed a Mach 5.7C right before the HD, sweet ride but ultimately I chose the Mojo for its versatility. But dang the 5.7C was light.

    Nice bike, but get a new stem would ya, that stems not nice enough for that bike, needs an ano orange straitline pinchclamp stem that matches the other ano bits on the bike or just a nice plain black ano, that would top it right off
    Dont ever let the truth get in the way of a funny story....

    OP - When you indulge, you don't mess around. Sweet ride!

    Tones - Suprised to see you suggesting anything orange, but I note that you did follow up with the suggestion of black.

    Wise words. I'm hoping a 50mm Thompson stem and 720mm bars will round it out!

    Wow, small world. I moved to Denver from Waco, and used to ride Cameron Park all the time. Even went back this year for the Xterra race there.

    Congratulations! I'm looking to get a new bike and I think the IBIS is at the top of my list. That bike is beautiful!

    A little snowy this morning on the front range, hence all the dirt.

    Thank you sir, do yourself a favor and take one for a demo. Better yet, demo both an SL-R and an HD.
