    Pivot Hardtail

    I was watching a dvd that came with an Australian MTB magazine today. It covered a few events including the DT Swiss Mountains to the Beach race. Jason English won the event this year riding a Pivot carbon hardtail!

    The bike is shown a lot on the dvd with clear Pivot labelling and the bird logo. It looked like a carbon frame with an ISP. Is there any info anywhere about this bike?

    Pivot Cycles USA has a special partnership with Spanish bicycle manufacturer BH bikes.
    Pivot actually imports and distributes BH road bikes in North America.
    Jason requested a hard tail to be used in some races, but since Pivot does not make a hard tail, they supplied Jason with the top of the line BH Ultimate Carbon Hardtail sans decals and paint.
    They then branded it with Pivot logos etc. Jason raceed his new 2010 Mach 4 SL with SRAM XX etc. most of the year, but did pull out the hardtail for ocassional less technical race.

    Exactly as el rob said.

    Jason requested a hard tail carbon to start the season with, after he spent time on the Mach 4, he didn't look back...

    I watch that DVD the other night

    I also wondered what the hard tail was, know I know!
    Well I have a Mach 5 in the post which should arrive in the next few days, and can't wait to ride...
    Will be interesting to compare against my Cannondale Rize and IH 6point4

    not sure how strong those carbon ht are coz the rear seat stay broke on his bike and on the mt to the beach race he had it repaired with Gaffer tape. was still able to win so the gaffer tape worked.
