People really have no idea how bad some stuff they ride really is after getting used to it. Btw the M6 demo is my colour choice and in person frame built does look incredible, good work Pivot.Ps anyone else having issue with mtb editor today, always bad for me but dam its worse today!Our National DH champs on yesterday top 3 were on new proto 27.5 Dh bikes, sic as bro. Wilson, Trek 9.9s braaap! Haha darkside is calling!

    That moment when your new Mach 6 was just delivered to your place of work, and it's only lunchtime and you want to get the hell out of here and build it and ride the $#!+ out of it but you can't.

    That's what I'm going through right now. Pics to follow once it's built.

    So vikb... have you spilled the beans yet on the identity of your new ride? Am I in the right forum?

    None more black

    Here's my freshly built XL Mach 6, stealth black color. X01/XT brakes, Pike @150mm, Reverb, Easton cockpit, Reynolds Carbon wheels. Red ano-bling parts. 28.2 lbs as pictured.

    Love the stealth black color w/ red highlights. A single red star, for communism!

    Probably need to cut the steerer down once I'm sure I like the fit. Not many spacers need with that tall HT.

    Love the way this bike looks, and looking forward to getting her dirty tomorrow!

    ^^^^^ Beautiful bike. I'm curious, why have you (and others) gone with the 150 Pike over the 160?

    No beans spilled. No cats out of bags.

    If my LBS's ETA was accurate I still have 4-6 weeks to wait and I am not assuming they have that right.

    Lots of time for something to go off the rails so I figure there isn't much point in getting into it quite yet.
    Safe riding,

    Sorry. Bad Question. What I meant was, why did you go with a 150 Pike over a 160 Pike? Did you feel one was better suited for the bike?

    I went with the 150 because I think 66.5 (in my XL) is a nice place to be in terms of HT angle, and the XL has a pretty tall HT so keeping bars at a reasonable height is also a consideration. That said, I'm sure it'd ride great with a 160 too; I honestly don't think that difference is going to make itself felt anywhere by in your head. I certainly wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the ride characteristics if I weren't told.

    Maybe because Pivot say to use a 150mm fork and thats what comes on all if their bikes.

    I'm using a 160 but im thinking the head is just to slack really?

    Thats what one of my buddies did. Personally I love it with the 160 on it.

    Headset question....

    The stock headset that comes with a build kit... Mine appears to have about a 2.5mm space between the top cap and flange of the head tube insert. There is a thin rubber gasket in that space, but the gasket does not nearly fill the void. The gasket seats upward into the recess of the top cap.

    The space looks open enough to let in a lot of water and grit.

    Am I missing perhaps some other seal or spacer/washer?

    Thanks.

    One other thought (which I posted over on the Mach 6 fork thread as well): I find that the Pike is more supportive than Fox forks or the FloatX rear shock. By which I mean it rides higher in its travel when set at the same sag, both climbing and descending. So when climbing in particular, the front feels a bit extra high due to the more supportive fork. For this reason I think it makes even more sense to stick with the 150mm pike up front.

    so I've been loving the Float X rear shock (really) but not in love with the front Fox fork. I know people have been replacing with Pike 150/160, but is it really that much of a difference? I feel that this front fork is a bit too shallow or stiff or something(?), not sure how to describe it. It's just not that amazing as I thought it would be....though the rest of the bike is PERFECT for me. Is this the reason to go to Pike? thanks in advance.
    I have too many bikes, but it's not enough

    That is impressive weight. Would you mind sharing the specs?
