    Oooooo, nice Quardo. That a small? Not too dissimilar a spec to mine! Well, once the frame arrives. Been sent over from the states the other day as far as I know. Hopefully get it soon. Ordered the frame 3 months ago!

    Only few rides with those Crossmax tires but they seem to be very good pair.

    Can you guys please measure the HA on the Mach6?
    My LBS mentionened the HA in reality is a bit slacker than claimed 66 degrees... Pivot supposedly did not want to scare people with the number...
    Thanks!

    I don't own a Mach, but it is in my top 3 list for a longer travel bike.
    I do own a Pike 150 though, which I am going to lower to 130mm for my 5" bike for now.

    I was just wondering what the real HA with a Pike is. 150 or 160.

    I can measure a Mach 6 with a pike 160 tonight - although I think the iPhone HTA measurements probably aren't accurate enough to detect a small difference from a spec'd HTA if we are talking +/- 0.5 deg.

    I can tell you from a seat of the pants perspective it feels a tad slacker than my Nomad Mk2, but the Pike stays higher in its travel so the effective HTA doesn't feel so slack when actually riding.

    Our trails are tight and twisty with steep ups and downs ridden at slow to medium speeds. The M6 is great in this setting.

    In the tightest turns I feel the bigger wheels and slack HTA, but the performance on the steep downs is worth it.

    No issues climbing steep tech on the M6.

    The short wheelbase and short chain stays play nice with the slack front end for an excellent mix of stability and manoeuvrability.
    Safe riding,

    Mach 6 pics

    Vik or anyone else - although I am in the north east our trails are incredibly rocky and slow rolling with barely any smooth sections and lots of rocky but short steep ups and downs. How do you find the Mach 6 in the rock gardens and repeated square edged stuff? I have a Mac 5.7 C and I am very disappointed with it when it comes to repeated rocky terrain.it gets hung up. My Avy tune helped but didn't cure the issue. I gather the Mach 6 is very different. The 5.7 has what feels like too much platform built in also. TIA.

    I don't know what a smooth trail is like. We have one rock and root after another. So getting hung up is a big issue.

    My experiences are on a Nomad MK2 [VPP] and the Mach 6.

    I have my Mach 6 setup a bit on the efficient side so I could go further to the plush side of things.

    The ride is what I would describe as taut and efficient...not as plush as my Nomad, but that's a bit of a choice on my part.

    No issues with getting hung up. Climbs steep chunky tech great where getting hung up is a deal breaker.

    Both the Pike and Mach 6 want to site higher in their travel which helps with repeated hits.

    My buddy who owns a LBS in Sedona and has forgotten more about mountain bike suspension than I'll ever know recommended the Mach 6 + pike for my riding which is coastal BC, UT and AZ.

    I'll likely send my M6's Float X to Avy for a tune at the end of the summer. With a bigger volume spacer I've got it working pretty good, but the Avy tune on my Nomad made it so much better I feel like I owe it to myself to see what it would do for the M6.

    I measured my HTA on my M6 w/ 160mm Pike [bike unsagged] = 66.5 deg

    I used an app on my andriod phone and flipped the bike 180 deg to make sure the surface it was on was level.

    Given the accuracy of this method and the length of my fork relative to the 150mm Fox Float 34 the bike is configured with stock I'd say that your LBS is incorrect is suggesting the M6 is much slacker than the geo chart lists.

    Thanks Vik.
    Ha, your post initially said "steeper" but You were quicker then me to corrected it
    Well 66.5 with the 160 Pike is even steeper than I would have thought. The A/C difference between the forks is greater... Hmm interesting, that will make 150mm pike even closer to 67 deg...

    I wouldn't get too hung up on a HTA measured with a phone.

    What it tells you is the HTA is not uber slack [the ride confirms this]. It could well be 66 deg bang on or even 65.5 deg at the outside. An error of +/- 1 deg is not crazy talk with such an ad hoc measurement protocol.

    My Nomad Mk2 is supposed to have a HTA of 67 deg and the M6 feels a touch slacker than that from a seat of the pants measurement.

    Ultimately you don't ride a HTA you ride a complete bike and people are digging the M6 with Fox 34's 150-160mm and Pikes in 150-160mm.

    I wouldn't sweat it either way.

    Same frame/fork [not sure about the headset] ~1 deg slacker HTA measurement. My opinion is we are trying to measure within the range of a smartphone so you are not going to nail down a measured HTA to 0.5 deg accuracy. OTOH both these numbers are in the range you'd expect for a nominal 66 deg HTA with a 150mm Float 34.

With the 160 Pike my bike measures at 65.4 degrees.
