    We were going for as short as possible with the rear triangle, gotta be nimble!. Evil has to get that shoulder back in operation first but I know he'll be champing at the bit to get on one Haven't heard an official word on if/when this will be a production bike yet. We literally finished building these proto's this week so we're still catching our breath a bit

    Just want to point out that specialized sells out of SX frames every fall, transition doubles are more popular every year, corsair sold a good number of Konigs last year that I saw......etc etc......


    If pivot decides to do a small run, I know a few guys including myself who would be very interested in one. There are a few things that I don't like about my SX frame that I suspect this one would adress.

    If strait wins a race at the otter on that thing, better get ready for the phone to start ringing off the hook Just based on the pics, that looks like a really well done bike.

    A DW bike can look so clean when you dont care about the front derailure.
    I have a couple of friends that ride SX's as trail bikes and one friend that still rides a blurr 4x for a trail bike. I think you would sell a fair number of these.

    Oh very nice. I've owned a few 4x style fullies and have a latest generation Tazer-VP in the stable right now. Would definitely be interested in one of these. Recently more and more SX, Doubles, Rampants, Killswitches, and Tazer-VP's have been showing up at our local jump spot. The word is out, 3-4" jump bikes are a blast!

    The ones with elevated chainstays don't look half bad either.

    Pivot could also be the only dw/quad link 4x bike on the market...a market where hard pedaling/sprinting is quite important.....just sayin.

    I guess there's one more but this one could easily be stiffer.

    Is it just me or did strait run this bike in the dh too? I saw some pics with a similar paintjob but it may have been a firebird.

    He did some practice runs on his new Phoenix but decided to race the M4X (same as Jared Graves). Well, not exactly the same since Jared rides for Yeti

    great! then we can expect preliminary production shop drawings and specs for our (customer) review by, say, mid-July at the latest? We could get our comments back in a week or two, i'm sure... (This would all be part of Dan23's new customer input initiative that he started )

    ... OK... maybe not...
