    Which Pivot Mach 6 model?

    I currently ride a 2013 specialized stumpjumper fsr evo expert 26. Which Pivot Mach 6 model would be similar in terms of build? One thing I can't stand about my Evo is the squeaky brakes/ frame vibration.

    Shimano XT brakes will get rid of the squeaking. I assume you have Avid's if they are squeaking. Depends on your preferences. I want XT brakes, but I also want XX1 or X01, so I opted for just a frame kit as I could not get both ordering a full kit. Talk with your LBS as others have been able to work with their LBS to mix and match. If you don't need XX1, the XT kit would work if your primary concern is good brakes.

    XO1 with an XT brake swap. It is worth the extra $300 even if they won't give you a penny for the Avids.

    That's what I did, got better than a penny for the Avids though.
