    Totally awesome M6 kibosh! Mine would look very similar with same pedals, drivetrain, frame. I was drooling over this color frame at LBS the other day. See how my demo test goes in a couple of weeks.
    Ride On!

    After just installing a skinny Vee Rubber tire on the back of my bike, kibosh's front tire seems gigantic...

    Thomson stealth dropper doesn't ship 'till May. Surely you're not going to wait that long to build your bike? Or do you live someplace snowbound?

    Kibosh, would love to see a few more pics of your build. I've got basically the same bike in an XL (same frame color, drivetrain, brakes, wheels) on the way. I'll be throwing some red grips and Canfield Crampon flats on. Lookin' good!

    I live in the PNW so snows not really an issue although we have 8 inches on the ground right now. May sounds about right for the trails to start drying out. I have a seatpost for it in the meantime or ride another bike.

    We've got some big mountains in my neck of the woods and the older I get the more I dislike climbing. But you've got to pay to play. Not building a race bike. Building this as a replacement for my departed HD as my quiver killer!

    Pretty rad rig csargos. How you diggin on those wheels? Tossing up the idea of those between the 30's for my upcoming trail bike. Did the bigger width of 35's change your tire profile much?
    Ride On!

    I've only been out thrice but they've been great so far. Compared to my previous i9 AM wheels, tire profile is definitely more square. Just eyeballing the tire, the square profile makes it seems a bit taller with roughly the same width.

    One concern I have is that the rim edge is more exposed to impacts from the side, being almost flush with the tire sidewall. I've already managed 2 scratches on my rear wheel and I hope they hold up.

    my Mach 6

    LOVE this bike - and love the color too, as opposed to the fluorescent choices. Had a Reverb added and changed the tires out to tubeless Conti's. I'll go carbon rim soon but not sure which one yet.

    Also note the ties for the cables around the Fox shock. I had LBS take a whack at it and it works perfect now. No bulging cables.

    Next change will probably be replacing the xo1 chainring/spider with a direct mount chainring.

    I'm doing this as well, after only 400 miles my X01 chainring had terrible 'chain suck'. We'll see if the Wolftooth ring is any more durable.

    Ive been on a Wolftooth for 3-4 months now in all conditions, compared to my XX1 no chain suck to date, ive ridden in more diverse conditions and its been quiet and still looks good, the XX1 would be a giveaway by creaking esp when wet, they do not wear well, hopefully Sram will address this, I know they are aware of the problem.

    Pro racers probably get new ones every few weeks, so well see, otherwise people going to buying aftermarket replacements and probably lose market share pretty quick, my next crank for example wont be an XX1, its a great crank though, but I will go RaceFace Next with a couple Wolftooth comp front rings 32 t general riding, 34t Enduro racing.

    FYI I looked at the RF Next before buying my XO1's. The weight difference is only there because SRAM uses the super heavy spider instead of the RF/Wolftooth style single ring. You can get the XO1/WT setup and save about $100 US here vs the RF Next setup and have a nearly identical weight setup. The new SRAM XX/XO1 setups no longer include a chainring either so it is cheaper to go WT either way. The RF Next is a SWEET looking setup though. Can't go wrong either way.

    Did you weigh the XO1/WT setup you are using?

    I'm assuming we are talking the aftermarket XO1 vs. the OEM cranks.

    The black is nice.

    Are they 2.2 rubber queens?
    I'm going to buy some but am undecided between 2.2 and 2.4.......

    The bike above is running Mountain Kings.

    I love the Rubber Queens (Trail Kings). I am currently running 2.4"s on my 26er and I have a fresh 2.2" set of TKs for my new 650B rig. With the taller wheels I figure I'll benefit from some weight savings and less rolling resistance while still getting good roll through on the rough tech sections.
    Safe riding,

    I see there MK's now. I've use 26 versions before and liked them.
    I think I'm going keep these bos on here too.
    The pikes are good and lighter but i just don't love them.
    Out on the trail, i love the bos.
    Is 170 too much for the m6 though? A ~c is only a couple of mm difference.

    The a-c is the most important number versus fork travel IMHO. How much taller is the Deville than a pike at 160mm? Btw I love my Deville on my mojo HD. Slamming the stem may help keep the front end from wandering but it looks like you have limited spacers there already.

    I've left loads of steerer on both until i find a happy setup.
    The stem has 10mm of spacers underneath at the moment. Feels best with none, maybe, 5mm.

    A~c on the 650b pike is 552
    A~ c on the 26inch, bos 170 is 555
    Doesn't seem like there's any offset difference between the two.
    Bugger all difference really.
    My rear tire is shorter than the front too which steepens h/a slightly.

    Given the minimal difference in a A-C I think it would ride just like it would with the160mm Pike 27.5 So if you like the feel of the Deville more I would use the deville

    This would actually slacken the H/A. Bike looks awesome! Very curious about the Bos suspension.

    You're right, i don't know why i put Steepen instead of slacken, probably still pissed from last night.
    Thanks for the compliment on the bike.
    Just got back from the first 'proper' ride on it.
    Was good, a few mixed feelings about it, very different from the enduro.
    Float x could do with more mid stroke support.
    I ran the pikes today.
    It's a great bike. Look forward to spending more time on it.

    Can't wait to hear what you think after a few miles on it. The difference is subtle but I am much more comfortable on the M6 vs the HD.

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.

    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.
    Mach 6 pics-img_1485.jpg
    Love the stealth black color w/ red highlights. A single red star, for communism!
    Mach 6 pics-img_1489.jpg
    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!

    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?

    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

    Yes. These were purchased as complete bikes, so they came with the plate.

    Goyayago, sorry I did not get back to you. I believe my Chris King is an Inset 3. It is fully integrated top and bottom. Hopefully that helps. You can call/email Pivot directly to confirm. They were very helpful when I asked a few questions during my build.

    Definitely not Inset 3, which has 44upper and 49 lower cup. M6 has 44 upper and 56 lower cup. Just check with whichever brand's website to confirm. There's about a gazillion diff sizes now and it's easy to get the wrong one.

    Wow, these M6's are looking sweet. Now if I could just build mine and get to ride again

    29.4lbs. It's mostly tire related. I could easily drop a pound there, but I prefer big tires and knobs.

    I ride the 160 and love it as do 4 of my friends on M6's as well. It is very easy to change the travel in the fork. It is a $40 air rod kit so don't stress too much about what length you get

    Can you change the Pike 150 to 160 with a kit? I would probably go with the 150, thinking it will help it climb a little better. Don't want dual air adjustable fork.

    I hope to ride a friend's 6, when he gets it, to see how it climbs first hand.

    Just rode some fun trails with some long, steep, loose, rocky climbs and decents. The guy riding the older, 160mm, 26" wheel, Enduro had a lot harder time up the climbs than I did on my old RIP9. But I had push it to keep up going down. The RIP can get a little twitchy on high speed decents. I hope the Mach 6 will be a good replacement for my RIP. Can someone compare these two?

    Yes it is just a different air rod. I had one friend that modified it to be 155 by cutting down the 160 rod as well. Rakes about 20 to change.
