    From the few previous posts it sounds like everyone would recommend an XL for my 6'2" frame with a 34-35" cycling inseam...

    My Cannondale Scalpel 29er is a size L, and has a 24.3in top tube that I run with a 90 stem. The stock 110mm was an endo-maker for sure on jumps/drops. Sounds like the XL with its 25.3in top tube and a 35 stem would still shorten things up a bit and put the bar a little higher...

    Nobody seems to have an XL Mach 6 near here to demo or rent so I'm flying a little blind... Curious to know everyone's thoughts.

    My thoughts are you should stop thinking so much about it and just buy one. Not one day have I ever regretted buying my Mach 6. Four of my riding buddies have since bought one as well. They all have thanked me for introducing them to Pivot Cycles. You're welcome!

    I'm 6'1" with 34 inseam and my XL w/ a 50mm stem is perfect. Love the fit. Do it.

    I am 5-10 but have fairly long legs and arms. Pivot recommends a M based on my height but I bought a L so I could run a 50mm stem with wide bars. It fits perfect. At your height I can't imagine a L would fit well, unless you want to set it up like an XC racer with a long stem. But then you will miss out on what makes this a great bike: pretty good climber, a bomber on the descents. Have fun with it!

    Sounds like XL is probably the winner for me. Now I just need to figure out whether it's Mach 6 or Nomad... Good thing I've got a few more weeks of recovery time to think about it.

    Mach 6 Review Thread

    I'm going to drag this thread back from the dead just to say that after 7 mos. and 1,200 mi I still love my Mach 6. It's getting even better lately now that I'm getting it totally dialed in.

    Some key tweaks I feel have made a big difference in dialing it in are:
    - 760mm wide bars: feel so much better than my original 710mm bars
    - Pike 150mm: I tried a Fox 36 160mm for a few weeks but for the way I ride the Pike is better
    - Minion DHR2 tires: I've been running one in the rear for 3 mos. and it has the best traction I've ever experienced...especially braking and it's reasonably light. I just now replaced my HR2 on the front with another DHR2. I've read a lot of good things about it on the front, so I'm anxious to try it on the trail

    +1! Went backwards today with the spacer, but it's still the first bike I've ever owned that I didn't want to sell after 6 mos. It's so good downhill. Tons of front end traction, balanced handling in fast corners, it climbs like a xc bike, and it's not a [enter big bad bike company that you see everywhere].
