    New Pivot Announced for Release in Summer 2014

    Now that I have your attention, start the speculation on what gap the model will fill. Personally, I'm still waiting on the Mach 5 replacement.

    "Your reward for making it to the bottom of this newsletter? We are pleased to share that we will be releasing a new bike at Summer Press Camp 2014. Get ready to meet the newest object of your cycling desire, and stay tuned for more info!"

    529 I hope but probably not since the 429 is likely the best seller in the lineup?

    I'm guessing it'll be a Mach 527, something with 130mm of travel and 27.5 wheels to directly complete with the Santa Cruz Solo/5010 and the Turner Flux. A few of the guys at Pivot rave about their Les 27.5's.

    If I had a ton of cash the Pivot lineup could take care of me with:

    Les 29" for XC and endurance races
    Mach 527 or similar for tighter or rockier XC and Trail
    Mach 6 for the bigger stuff and "E" word
    Phoenix for DH (if I had time to drive to a park)

    Cocalis seems to really value efficiency and I'd expect something for those that would be over-biked with a Mach 6.

    That makes sense. I'd be interested in a Mach 527.

    Wait! They don't go to Press Camp. Or didn't last year.

    Picture shows a rider climbing so a 527 makes some sense.

    Would like to see a Solo competitor with something around 130-140 travel, but still slack and low!

    Good point. Maybe a 527 and 529? Maybe asking a lot from a smaller brand.

    Yes, but I don't think the Mach 429 is going anywhere if that's what you're implying. I suppose a longer travel (~130mm) "big brother" for the 429, is a possibility, but I'm hoping for a ~120mm "little brother" to the Mach 6. Make it a bit quicker handling, a tad more stretched out (while keeping a compact wheelbase), and with even snappier pedaling and lower weight.

    My guess is a longer travel 29er, in the 150mm range. Other wise another 27.5 in the shorter travel range 120-130mm.

    Sounds like a wonderful time to talk to your local shop though I know shouting into the digital night that is MTBR feels much better. No doubt it'll be worth the wait.

    Wasn't there a dealer announcement about a 27.5 5.7 that went out on Thursday?

    The 6 is probably going to morph into something bigger and replace the Firebird.

    If its an AM oriented 529er, they will have beaten Ibis to the punch again. And consequently, i'll probably buy the pivot.

    Just bought a 429 Carbon with 120mm fork after waiting to see if Pivot do a 527 so my guess is a 527. I think Pivot are missing a lighter duty modern trail bike in the 120mm travel range, the 5.7 is good but a little tall compared to the new generation bikes.

    Actually very glad I bought the 429 C which sort of replaces my Mach 5 which is waiting for me to rebuild it. Might be a long wait I think the 429 is brilliant.

    Not sure a longer travel 29er will happen with Pivot, the DW link seems to need quite long stays compared to some other suspension designs, look at the Specialized bikes. Not saying it won't happen but the stays could be quite long and it might loose it's climbing efficiency.

    Re: New Pivot Announced for Release in Summer 2014

    I've been hearing from good sources that it will be a 120 to 140mm travel 27 inch like the new Turner Flux, since last fall.
    Which would be the front runner for my baby momma's next bike if it is that.

    New Pivot Announced for Release in Summer 2014

    I'm betting the Mach 5.7 gets bumped to 150mm/27.5 to compete with the Bronson and the Mach 6 bumped up to 165mm to compete with the Nomad. FB may be dropped this year, its had a good run.

    Hoping it's around 130ish travel. I'd like a bit more than 120 for trips, but don't really want to lug 150+ around when I don't need it in TX.

    Sources close to the president tell me it's an organically grown, hemp carbon weave e-tricycle with the newest 28" wheel size!

    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.
    Wow, GJ, Fruita, and Moab trails are riding great. This is a killer spring for riding!

    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.
