    Crappy cell phone pic, but it's a 429.

    Current size large (25" top tube) with SRAM XO/X9 drive train, I9 wheels, Hope Mono Minis and WB Magic 100 fork. I have a new 2009 Reba Team w/Maxle sitting in the garage, but the post mount has me waiting on new brakes.

    Very happy with the ride coming off of a Spider 29. The Spider was a little snappier handling but not nearly as stable as the Pivot. The stiffness difference between the two, absolutely no comparison, the Pivot is the stiffest fs frame I have ever owned.

    Mach 4 Down-Under

    The is my new LARGE Mach 4 - it arrived on the first major shipment to Australia - so therefore, I believe its one of the very first down-under.

    It weighs in at 11.29kg (24.89lbs) - according to shop scales. Its the standard XTR build kit, but with the WTB saddle replaced with a Selle Italia SLR XC, Syntace bar and stem replace with Ritchey WCS stem and Easton SL bars and Eggbeaters 4ti pedals.

    Very happy!

    congrats on your purchase. Nice shooting angle though, just if you could tone down the brightness by a lil bit to make the bottom of the picture less bright, then that would be great.

    Custom build Mach 4 from Australia. No black available so had to get blue.

    Size large, 26.1lbs on the shop scales. Still need to cut the steerer and brake lines.

    Pivots in Australia

    Good to see another nice Mach 4 in Australia. How are you enjoying it?

    If your from Sydney, look out for mine in the Lower Blue Mountains.

    Amazing bike. Its fast and the most balanced thing I've ridden. Great geometry, quick steering which eats up tight singletrack, BB height is spot on. I've built mine to be stiff, strong, durable, reliable and reasonably light. Just the ticket for marathon racing.

    I'm in Melbourne.

    And I think I've got one of the 2009 frames. It's got the new 09 Fox RP23 shock.
    Dunno, maybe it is...is there any distinguishable difference?

    Wow, talk about "bling." I'm looking forward to seeing those pictures as well.

    Got my Mach 5 almost ready, but the wheels will probably be another couple weeks, at least. Mine will be 2009 stock with the XTR Ultralight Build Kit, then swapping out the wheels for some Industry 9 AM hubs in red, red spokes, and Stan's ZTR Flow rims with a couple tubeless Pythons (2.3 in the front, 2.0 in the rear).

    I really like the Syntace stuff, it looks really good, and hopefully, will perform really well. The Alligator I Links look cool, do they cause any frame scratches where they rub the frame? That would be my only concern with them. I may have to consider getting some in red, or blue, then they would be almost invisible with the frame...

    Hi Q, John D here here. I brought your old Spider and you are right about it. Is the stiffness really lightyears ahead cause it sh*ts me about the Spider. One thing though is it was wonderful to finally fit on a frame............... opened up a whole new experience for me so thanks for that. I notice you when for a large with a TT of 25 as opposed to the Spiders 25.75. How do you find that and is it more flickable / trail worthy?
    Take care and once again thanks for your great service on that Spider.
    John D

    I am still waiting for my wheels too (how long for yours??). Have borrowed some temporarily from another bike. Also using a spare stem and couple other parts. Once it's built completely I will post photos. Have ended up ordering a Ritchey Carbon 4-axis stem instead of the syntace one, but love the bar!! I had the Alligator Ilinks on the previous bike and just used some of the clear plastic film in a couple of patches. Works fine.

    That sounds cool. It took almost exactly 12 weeks. Mine is complete now, but I used the stock DT Swiss wheels to ride a few times, so I'm waiting until I can wash the bike to take some pictures... I haven't ridden on the new I9 wheels yet, but they sure look awesome. I had to readjust the brake calipers for proper spacing, and install the 180mm adapter in the front, so I had a little work getting the wheels installed...

    Now I just got to find someone looking for a set of wheels with 15QR in the front!

    Quick update...photo looks the same...but new 2009 Fox F100 RLC to match the shock, Hope floating rotors and Hope seatclamp. It's at least 10% faster + more bling! Shame my knee has me sidelined for the next 8 weeks...split patella cartlidge dammit.

    Frame: Pivot Mach 4 large with Hope seatclamp (blue)
    Fork: Fox F100 RLC '09
    Wheelset: Mavic SLR '08 with Mavic Ti skewers
    Tyres: Maxxis Monorail 2.1 UST
    Brakes: Avid Juicy Ultimate 160mm
    Rotors: Hope floating
    Shifters: Sram X0
    Rear mech: Sram X0 Token CNC Ceramic bearing jockeys
    Front mech: Shimano XT (soon to be replaced with XTR)
    Chain: Shimano XTR
    Cassette: Shimano XT M770
    Crankset: Raceface Deus
    Pedals: Shimano XTR
    Seatpost: Thomson Masterpiece
    Saddle: WTB Rocket SLT Ti
    Stem: Thomson Elite with Ti bolts
    Handlebar: Easton Monkeylight Carbon
    Grips: Ruffian ODI lock-on
