    Just more info, mainly the promo video posted above. We're also showing more complete Phoenix bikes with final graphics.

    Nice job. 115mm, 155mm. Not too hard to figure out what fits in between.

    Kudos to CC and the Pivot crew...Looks like a lot of great ideas went into this bike. Nice work.

    CS645-Thats what I was thinking, 130mm to fill the gap which is really close what the 27.5 modded Mach 5.7 is.

    I would love to own this bike, with 29r wheels of course. Love the updates and dropped weight.

    Pivot please update the 429C when you get the chance..Thanks

    Sorry about the posting pre release I guess when we are on the other side of the world we sometimes get to stumble on things that the rest of you might not see as your asleep.

    Anyway it is close to what I was hoping for only that I recently bought a 429 Carbon so will be waiting a while for a new Pivot to add to the stable. The Geo numbers are close to my 429 C with 120 fork so it looks like it will be a fast trail bike or longish travel XC bike. Love the weight and short wheelbase. I assume you could slacken the head angle with a longer fork for those who want a little slacker. I also like the graphics and colour options.

    For me it is probably the Goldilocks bike, just right.

    Well if I were into XC I might love it, but I'm not...so I don't. I little more travel and a little slacker & I'd be very curious.

    We're going with the same logic as the Les 27.5 in thinking that riders who would fit an XL frame are more likely to just go with a 29" wheel bike. NOT giving up on the tall guys!

    It's a XC bike after all, so it might be just right.
    Why is everyone saying it's low when it's the same height as the 429c and other bikes like the Turner Czar, Flux, etc ?

    What am I missing?

    Was hoping for a ~5", light, do it all bike similar to the Sight and solo...looks cool enough though and plenty fast. When's the Mach 5 Carbon come out?

    What's retail for frame only? I guess Pivot is moving away from aluminum. It'd be nice to have that option for those that don't want to pony up for carbon. I know, can't please everyone!

    I have a question on rear shock mounting. With a lot of frames these days it is difficult or impossible to fit a large bottle inside the frame. Consensus has been to turn the shock around to clear the lever. Why don't manufacturers sell the bike with the shock turned around in the first place to have the lever at the rear and more out of the way? Also is it OK to do this with this bike?

    So because I am 6'3", I get punished with only having a 29er option. That's not logic, that sounds like our federal government's type of thinking. I'm sure Pivot will loose a number of sales with that type of thinking......shame shame shame

    I don't think punished is the right word. Maybe just unfortunate if you are a die hard Pivot fan. I am in the same sizing boat but look at it this way: there are a lot of other manufacturers with options out there so even the tall guys have a lot of great 27.5 choices, just not Pivots.

    What would be the correct word? Because I'm a big fan of the M4 and 650B.......and had my sights on trying a short travel FS 650B Pivot. So 2015 is out for us tall guys and gals.

    I will hold onto my M4 for another 18 months......maybe I will put a 650B front wheel on it and enjoy my other 650B bikes

    It's no problem running the shock "reversed" but not everybody wants to run it that way (less moving weight, don't run bigger bottles, etc..) so we just send it out with the lever forward and let the riders decide how they prefer to set it up. AFAIK this frame has clearance for a full size bottle as is. I'm slated to do some suspension testing on one of the bikes this week so I'll be able to test out bottle fit then.
