    Cool-blue Rhythm Official pics and info for 2014 bikes!

    Here's the information right from the new catalog. The Mach6 will also be available in the same black/yellow color as the Vault (it's a cool color scheme) and the Les 27.5 is available in Blue (similar to the Red frame pictured). The Vault is just as you see it.

    That's very slick geometry for 27.5
    Availability? MSRP?

    The LES 27.5 will be a great bike for traveling racers ... Much easier to pack and fly airlines with the slightly smaller wheels. Nice work.... Looks awesome. (When's the McDowell Park demo?).

    That blue M6 would look so good in my garage. Gotta ditch the big red S and get my hands on the local brand. Soon enough.

    I'll have to check my price sheet tomorrow but I'm pretty sure MSRP is close to the existing Carbon 5.7 and 29" Les. Availability is going to vary according to size but we expect to be shipping frames by September for Mach6, October for 27.5 Les. I need to double check my notes at work though....

    OK, double checked my notes and availability is pretty much what I posted earlier. Shops will start receving their first frames in Sept/Oct (Mach6). Orders placed today will be shipping later in Oct/Nov timeframe. Les 27.5 will be available in Sept for Med & XS sizes, Oct for Sm. and Lg frames. Les pricing is the same for 29 or 27.5, Mach6 is $200 more than Carbon 5.7.Vault frames will be available in Aug., complete bikes later in Aug/early Sept. Frame MSRP is $2299.

    Thanks for spending a good chunk of your day on MTBR answering our questions Ken. I don't know if I would have had the same discipline to sit in front of a laptop given the trail offerings outside your day in Deer Valley and the greater Park City Area. Huge to you Ken and the Pivot crew.

    Oh I didn't get to go to DV this time, I'm sitting at home in AZ on my home computer. I WILL be up there in a couple of weeks though, on vacation!

    OK, I have to ask. Are there more coming out tomorrow? These are awesome, but not the the kind of riding I typically do, so just curious.

    Hey Ken,

    Look like some pics have the extra bit of tubing on from the top tube to the seat tube. Is this just in the larger size? Does the medium have this?

    BTW, its only an 18hr drive from SLC to vancouver...

    OK, thanks. And no biggie... just keeps my options to the 429c instead of having to debate between 2 models!

    I have a set of 27.5 wheels hanging out waiting for a bike to go on. I think I need a Mach 6 to match my Mach 5.7c.

    Nice bike but too much bike for our local eastern Canada trails. Love the shock mount: simple idea. Very long TT, 23.2 for M5.7 vs 23.6 for M6.

    Yeah, the bracing is size specific. The Blue bike pictured is a Medium and has a fairly small brace while the Black/Yellow on bikerumour is an XL which ahas a much larger brace. The Small & XS don't have this.

    Excerpt from the MBA article, regarding the wishbone linkage...
    "This is a very cool trick. By rotating the shock body (1), Pivot connects it to a wishbone link (2) to the dw-link rear suspension (3). Where other designs have used a similar link, it required a proprietary shock (a shock designed just for one model). Pivot's trick, one of those "why didn't I think of that?" ideas, allows the Mach 6 owner the freedom to swap to pretty much any production shock down the road."

    Brilliant idea, way to go Pivot and also from the bottom of my heart, thank you for this - ISCG05 tabs, seriously I could cry right now.

    So... I just bought the Firebird 27.5 (which I absolutely love). But I also need a new more XCish bike and was hoping for a 5" travel 27.5 to be released by Pivot. Question is... Will the Mach 6 serve both purposes? Will anyone buy my FB 27.5 at a deep discount? Maybe my pretty white FB 27.5 paired with a new green 429 might be a better combo? These are the deep questions I am pondering at the moment.

    2 bikes are always better than one. Keep the FB built a bit burlier and get a 429C for lighter days.
