    News is coming at Sea Otter, per the latest Pivot e-newsletter. I can't wait to hear what's coming next. I'm hoping for 650b...

    ^

    considering your signature:

    the desert dwellers
    with hard pack and smooth bed rock
    just do not get it...

    actually, wouldn't a spandex-free version of a fat bike with 25" or 25" fat rims, a dual crown fork, and 7" - 8" suspension be nice for those muddy down hill days?

    Hush! Can't you hear the black choppers circling overhead??
    PS: Our smooth bedrock pretty much negates the need for any suspension or even knobbies for that matter

    Maybe not carbon but definitely aluminum. Unfortunately, probably not a 650B either.

    i've been disapointed by the absence of a long travel (140mm+) 29er.

    I'm holding out hope for a short-travel 650b. Santa Cruz sure has been busy lately, and now Ibis officially enters the fray. When will Pivot respond?

    I'm still hoping they are working on a carbon framed 26/650b compatible Pinion gearbox Firebird or M5.7!
