    Pivot Vault is go!

    The frame landed today in my garage, now the process of installing the old parts from the older bike starts...

    BB and cranks are the hold up

    Nice! What's your planned use? Do you have previous cx bike experience? Is that a road slick in the second pic?

    Yeah. Owned a cannondale superx *cough* cx but wanted a pivot. Have owned a Mach 4 and 5.7 and wanted a pivot cx too. With two sets of tires, it doubles as road bike too when needed. But yes, nothing better than riding a cx on mtb trails. Will take some action photos soon.

    Yep, light bicycle with novatech hubs. Running tubes atm, but may try tubeless soon

    Nice.. I've been using the light bicycle rims on my Colnago roadie and my previous stumpjumper. just ordered a pair of 650b am rims from them. These rims work great tubeless.

    Cool bike. If you don't mind how about a ride report? How does it soak up chatter and what is the handling like?

    It's handling is quicker than the cannondale and perhaps 'twitchier' but I like it. It's stiff through the Bb and rear end, but there is flex in the front end and it is noticeable. I would have liked a through Axel option as I think this would resolve the issue. The geometry is good and the bike handles well. Internal cable routing is great compared to the external top tube cabling of the dale. The top tube was scratched way too easily and the vault won't have this option.
