    Pivot told me yesterday they could not confirm nor deny a carbon 5.7, and today my Pivot dealer said it'd be out in the Spring after they get some built and tested.

    I would guess that you called us before the frames were shown at Dealer Camp. For obvious reasons we couldn't say anything until they made their debut.

    Probably. I called yesterday around noon PST.
    I'm a DW Link fan, and the 5.7 specs fit my needs. Unfortunately the delivery is so far in the future that my next bike purchase timing is a tad off. Maybe the next next purchase will be that carbon 5.7; looks great.

    I hope it's available soon! Any information on when? I'm ready to buy something now - this looks like a real contender!

    Waiting patiently for the 29er version so I can sell all my frames to get it. I hope they get it right the first time like they did with my 429. I'm sick of being a beta tester.

    I agree about the graphics! I'm not usually that particular, but those are LOUD. I don't like a bike that yells its name like that. By contrast, the Ibis Mojo SL-R is nicely understated.

    Still, this bike looks awesome! Can't wait to get more details!

    I also agree. Too much with the logo / graphics. Keep it simple & classy.

    I also agree on graphics, its a little to much. Maybe there is less graphics on some of the other color options? Anyone know in what colors the frame will be avaliable?

    I was thinking that perhaps I'd upgrade from my 5.7 if it had water bottle mounts inside the front triangle, and it does. Uh-oh.

    Hey Pivot,
    Why Carbon? I know you saw no need for a while, or at least I remember reading some where you would only offer carbon when it was appreciably better than you aluminum frames. Given how well your aluminum frames are, I would love to know what is changed in your minds. There is no doubt it will sell well (I can't wait to get one). However, given how well you have done with aluminum, I think that your perspective on what carbon offers would be welcome.

    Thanks.

    Out of curiosity, why do you want one?

    Chris C saw it's not only you wanting the carbon frame, there are many more..., so here it is the birth of Pivot carbon.

    Why I want one

    That's a fair question. Here are the reasons:

    - I think carbon is a better material. Airplanes in the 80s were made of aluminum. Think 737. Airplanes today are made of carbon fiber (think 787). I feel carbon frames will last longer and survive crashes better than aluminum. Of course when carbon goes there is usually no warning.

    - It is usually six or seven years for me between mountain bikes. When I buy a new one I usually get the newest model offered and it has worked well for me - I have one of the earliest Intense Spiders, Breezer Lightnings and VooDoo D-Jabs. Inevitably the second version of a new model tends to be better as the manufacturers work out the kinks. However I am not patient enough to wait.

    - Weight. I used to subscribe to the notion at weight doesn't matter. That was before I was fortunate enough to afford durable lightweight parts. The difference between a 29 pound bike and 24 pound bike for me is about 5 minutes for every 1000 feet vertical.

    That about covers it.
