    Don't forget that we run 30% sag so the riding height will be a bit lower....

    Why is that suprising? Same as 429c and similar bikes.

    Very nice. Can't say that it will replace my 429C for riding in Texas with the constant rocks, but looks to be a pretty nice bike. Looking forward to getting to try it out sometime.

    Exactly.
    It is pretty low. Even the Mach6 seemed lower than the numbers would indicate while riding.
    I guess one needs to try one before passing any judgments.
    It's a XC bike after all, so it might be just right.

    Yeah, it's pretty normal for a bike in the XC travel range (12.8-13.1) . Once you start getting into trail bikes (120+ travel), it goes up with 13.2+.

    I got to put in several miles on the aluminum prototype for this bike and I was pretty amazed at what it was capable of doing. I rode several of my favorite sections that have lots of high speed drops (1-2' tall, not Rampage stuff) and chunky rocks to skip thru and it felt completely stable. I set so many PR's on my STRAVA that some guys were asking what I was riding that day....It's def on my short list.

    Nailed it with the geo. The blue looks nice too. I can't wait to test ride one.

    AAAAAAAWWWW yeah, a beauty! Not going to replace my 429c, but I know of a Trek Fuel WSD in the garage that it might replace... No problem, anything for you Kenny B!!!

    We're actually shipping 1 Large & 1 Medium bike to each of the Demo trucks after the press camp is done. Large & Med frames are in production so those will be available first but I don't know the projected availability date. Dan23 will know those details best, I just remember that we're trying to get them here ASAP

    Sounds pretty much spot on to me. The Solo is 13.1 w/ a 130mm fork & 125mm rear travel, the Flux is 12.8 w/ 120 & 120.

    I absolutely love the rest of the geo too. With chainstay and wheelbase measurements nearly identical to a TRc (looking at size L), it should be a wicked fun bike. And with the DW link you know it's gonna be super efficient as well.

    Yeah, the geometry numbers look really good to me. Was hoping for maybe a lee-tle more travel, maybe 130mm, but otherwise this is the bike I've been waiting for Pivot to release for about two years now. Yippee!!!
