    I believe it is a 28.238096098237409274209387002819350239685 wheel size so that it is exactly between the 650B/non275 wheel size and 29'rs. BTW the rumor I heard was that the hemp is a new weave that acts as solar panels to recharge the battery.

    New Pivot Announced for Release in Summer 2014

    I'm predicting a Mach 427
    (4" travel 27.5 xc bike)
    and a Mach 529
    (5" travel 29er)

    Any thoughts on a Mach 4 replacement/revision? Carbon, 27.5" wheels, maybe upping the travel to 120mm or so? Seems like this model is a bit dated these days.

    ^^^ I thought exactly that. I was in between that and the Mach 529 but the newsletter picture suggests climbing...

    It also looks to me like the wheel size suggests a 29er. I'm going with a 120mm rear with a 140mm fork'd 29er... In carbon...

    Since the 429c is their best seller, making an LT version allows them to capitalize on the 29er market. Just my $.02 worth...

    I'm guessing a serious full-suspension XC race machine. 27.5 or 29, or maybe both for different sizes. Light and tuned for speeeeeed.

    Agree that the pic does not suggest a freeridey/all-mountain/enduro type of rig.

    Fuel for your fires..

    Well, if you REALLY want to read into things: the title of that section in the newsletter is:
    "Big Things Are Coming"

    Just sayin'.

    I'd love to see an alloy mach 527 or 427 type bike. Something to help them get into the midwest market where we need a bit less travel than out in the mountains.
    I lean towards something alloy because I think if they lower the cost of entry into the Pivot world they could rapidly expand into markets they are weak in (midwest for example).

    Conjecture and geeking out over the next big thing sure is fun.

    What is so wrong with the 5010c that you are trying to replace it after a couple of months? Confused... (My interpretation of your posts obviously)

    I'd like to see Pivot's version of the 5010...maybe a 1/2 degree slacker than the Solo with 135-140 travel and short wheelbase like the M6.

    The hot markets now are:

    27.5 and E- for Enduro..Mach 6 has that covered
    27.5 125-140mm trail bike not really covered, I know Pivot offers the modded M5.7 in 27.5 but not really designed for the bigger hoops.
    Longer travel 29rs 130-150mm range, definitely not covered.

    So I am still guessing something like Mach 527, or Mach 529 of course +- travel at Pivots discretion.

    Re: New Pivot Announced for Release in Summer 2014

    In Pivot's long history have they ever announced two new full suspension bikes during their summer press camp? I wonder if they may have a 529 and a 527 ready.

    I vote for a 629c though. I doubt it would happen.

    Nice colour too but maybe I should let Pivot announce it themselves.
