    Is that Mach 6 27.5" or 26"? The FB blurb doesn't say.

    The Mach6 is interesting. I wonder what the geo looks like. Naturally I have to ask what is "next generation" about the DW? The upper linkage looks different than previous Pivot setups. And of course, what will become of the Firebird? This bike encroaches on it's territory.

    Haven't seen geometry yet. Firechicken is still longer travel if they want to keep a 26" bike in this segment alive.

    The Mach 6 is 27.5. This probably explains why there are big sales on FB frames atm.

    Wow, nice looking bike. Will be interesting to see the specs after the announcement. Love all the internal cable routing and the Float X as stock. Me thinks end of life for the FB and ALU 5.7.

    I'll be most interested in the geometry of this bike.

    Oh my god. Subdued graphics on the stealth black/red version too. This thing was designed to take my money!

    I have images to upload but I'll have to wait until I get home (no photoshop to get a good resizing on work computer)

    Edit - I hate being wrong - open mouth insert foot. Disregard previous comments.

    Brilliant bike, nice to see someone at pivot knows how to design a bike Will sell like hotcakes Im sure. This is the bike dreams are made of.

    Waiting for all the comments about how Pivot stole the shock link concept from Specialized/Kona.

    ISCG05 tabs and 12mm thru-axle too! Too bad the BB height is already super low. I'd buy a frame and run my 26" wheels on it for awhile. I just won some Enve carbon wheels with Chris King hubs in 26" so I'm kind of reluctant to change wheels right now.

    So, from the Bike Rumor bit, it sounds like 150mm up front is what's on there now. Curious if a 160 mm fork is a build kit option that's been part of the testing process.

    Going from 27.5 to 26, BB only drops .5" +/- Depending on how smooth you are, shouldn't really matter. My initial opinion was same, drop some 26" wheels in there and let'er rip!

    Oh my. Very Nice. I like the look of the Mach 6 very much. And that stealth Red/Black version is so tasty!

    Pity I love my 5.7C so much still. I'm not going to rush out and buy the brand new bike, but if and when my 5.7C wears out that'll definitely be at the top of my list!!

    ...or just sell the new Enve's and get a set of the 27.5 AM's .

    Photos are nice, in person is better. Ken, are the Mach 6's going to be in the demo wagon when y'all come to Portland (Sandy Ridge) on Aug 4th?

    Also, when will shops be able to order Mach 6 frames and when can we expect to start seeing delivery of the early orders? I have parts dreaming of a new home on a Mach 6.

    You better take a breath. Maybe next year, and hopefully with a 529!
