    ... and if we just ...

    My Mach 5

    This is by far the best bike I have ever ridden. It climbs so much better than my previous four bar linkage bike and decents are also much more faster. My opinion about the rear suspension is that it's very plush, and I have never needed the propedal.
    It is also pretty light (25,1 lbs) for that amount of travel.
    I would recommend it...

    I saw your bike at the shop! I wanted black, but none were available last year. Only blue.

    Unbelievable bikes.

    I am sure the boys at VicMTB looked after you. Best shop in town. And most knowledgable about Pivot.

    So here is mine. Firebird SLX build, Fox 36 Float and the 2010 RP23 with Boost valve, stock so far. I was lucky enough to test ride one of these with Ken (kenbentit) a while ago and was hooked and couldn't wait to get one.

    I've taken out on 2 rides so far and it gets better and better as I get the suspension fine tuned for me. My old bike was more of an XC/Trail bike (motobecane Phantom Comp DS) and the FB is definitely suited more towards the way I like to ride. The trails in Phx AZ are very rocky and this bike really smoothes things out nice. I am really stoked on this bike. I'll add some more pics when I get a chance.

    very sharp!

    what trails do you ride in Phx? I just picked up a Mach 429 to replace a Raleigh XXIX+G.. world of difference... so much better on the rocky terrain here.

    Rides I have actually been doing in the summer are usually along various parts of T100 and all the loops/spurs around dreamy draw/piestawa peak.

    Some riding I am hoping to do include NRA, Sunrise and Flagstaff.

    When it's cooler, I'll ride Papago and plan to ride SOMO more often and get in on some shuttle runs.

    Almost looks like clear bar tape to me, probably to protect it from being scratched. He has it on his chainstays as well.

    Nice gold ano to match the linkage. I'm going to post an update pic of mine soon... I thought it'd look cool with a CK gold headset and Salsa Gold seatport Clamp. The Salsa almost matches the gold linkage, but the CK headset gold is FUGLY on mine. I can't tell in your pic, but is it about four shades too dark on yours too? Now I can't do anything about it since I got all excited, convinced myself it would look great, and used it...

    my CK headset has some gold in it and it seems to match really well... but the color always seem to change with each batch of anodizing... note how much darker the CK spacer ring is...



    i need to develop my crashing skills...

    Hi Bros,
    I wrapped the lower fork and chain stays with some transparent PVC tape 0.8mm thick which I found them to be an excellenct material to use for protecting the related parts from scratches. These PVC tapes are cheap, durable, very easy to maintain, and you can hardly see them from a distance (fork 's graphics are visible). More importantly, they are better than the cloth-type chainstays which after riding in moist, may absorb muddy water with stinking smell like grandmother's mouth.

    When I looked for the various golden components for trimming, I found it impossible to match them in perfect colour scheme as well, they are in fact fall into different catergory of gold color from greenish gold (dw-link) to reddish gold (CK headset), the best gold color in fact, came from the Spank Royala rim !

    New Mach 5 build

    Wanted to share my new Mach 5 with you all. Just got her built up last Wed. morning and headed out to CO. First stop Boulder, hang with some friends and on to Fruita on Friday. Rocked the Mach 5 on Rustlers, Horse Theif, Kessel, Western Zipty, Zipty Do Da and Kessel again. That's the way to break in a new bike! Onto Telluride on Saturday hanging and riding with friends around Tride for 3 days. Weather turned in the mountains so we hoofed it to Moab and am here now. Took the photo on Bar M-B Loop today. Tomorrow The Whole Enchilada is in store.....whoo hooo! I love this ride!!

    I love this bike, it is replacing a 4 year old Trance w/ Fox F 130 RL, which I dearly loved ( the Trance is going to one of my buds who is in need of a bike and is going to swap me beer from his award winning brewery). The Mach 5 does it all and more with about the same weight and component selection. I truly feel like I can ride anything on this bike especially the way I have it set up right now. Not sure of the weight but I will put it on a scale as soon as I am able, maybe at Poison Spider bike shop tomorrow. My guess is 27 lbs. as shown. This is a 2010 model with the large can RP23 and the only thing that I notice is that if I set the sag at 30% that I can blow through all the travel with bigger hits 2-4'. I want it to have some steeper ramp up at the end and a bit of reserve. I am either going to make the air sleeve shim that people are using on DW Link longer travel bikes with air shocks or send my shock to Push for a custom tune and a big hit mod.

    Here is my build:
    Mach 5 Grey, small
    RS Lyrik MY10 170 mm SA DH CD White
    Cane Creek 110 ZS black HS
    I9 Enduro/ Stans Flow rims w/ Stans yellow tape/ tubless
    Kenda Nevegal 2.35 UST front tire
    Maxxis High Roller 2.35 UST rear tire
    SRAM XO Triggers w/ Matchmkers
    Avid Elixir CR brakes 160mm RR, 185mm FR
    SRAM XO RD
    XTR FD
    XTR BB
    Race Face Deus White TCR cranks
    Crank Bros Mallet M pedals with Ward Ind. Ti-6Q2 spindles
    SRAM 990 11-34 cassette
    SRAM 991 HP chain
    Thomson Elite SP
    WTB Devo carbon saddle
    Salsa Flip Lock SPQR
    Tompson X4 31.8 x 70mm x 0deg stem
    Easton 31.8 ML CNT riser bar
    ODI Rouge Lock On grips

    I also have a Fox Float 140 RLC/ Pushed for me and getting a white paint job. I will run this fork for a more XC/ endurance race/ ride set up. I don't though I am absolutely loving this bike the way I have it now and I have cleaned every steep climb I have attempted with it.

    What do you think? Thanks for looking!

    Sweet Mach 5 indeed! Nice build-up and components list. I remember pm you early last year about your Trance I ended up with a Fisher... But on the lookout for a burlier bike to add to the stable for next year... How do you like the Lyrik up front? How is it compared with Fox forks?



    cheers

    Thats a beauty!

    Why did you go with the 170mm fork over a shorter one? Just curious.

    is that a cateye next to the left grip?

    Thanks, MK, MC and OD! I wanted a new Lyrik Solo Air and the '10 SA forks are 170 mm, it was also the one I got a deal on. I love it with the Lyrik, it rocks the down hills and climbs pretty well. I will put the Fox Float 140RLC on with my Crossmax SL wheels when I want a more of a trail bike. The HA with the Lyrik is about 67.5 deg. and with the Fox it is 69 deg. the bike is about 2 pounds lighter with the Fox an my Crossmax wheels. I am also using lighter non UST Nevegals on the Crossmax, 2.35 front and 2.1 rear, so they contributes to the lighter weight. I do love this bike but I need to add a shim to the air sleeve to increase the ramp up at the end of the stroke.

    Here's my Mach 5. Since this photo was taken it now has a red Hope seatpost clamp, Thomson Elite seatpost, Thomson X4 stem, red Chris King headset, Easton MonkeyLite bars, Ergon GP1 grips, Lizard Skin chainstay protector. Converted to tubeless with a Stan's kit.
    Would like to do Hope brakes and a different crankset...

    I think that many changes deserves another picture. If you made that many changes to a computer, Windows would want you to reactivate...

    Thanks... I'll try to get a new photo up over the weekend.
    This is an '09 model, large frame. According to the bathroom scale it weighs in at 29.8 pounds, which is OK by me. I'm just an old dude who likes riding for fun and amusement! ;-)

    I am very happy with the Small Block Eight on my Mach 5. It's a 26x2.1 DTC, non-UST with 2 scoops of Stans and inflated to 30psi. I ride rocky, dry SoCal trails. Great climbing traction, haven't broken loose yet (most climbing in middle chainring.) I'm pretty easy on the rear brake descending and haven't had any issues with skidding. Very pleased with this setup and will keep it!

    My new Mach 5:



    I bought the frame a few weeks ago and just recently finished the build. I've had it on two official rides now, and I have to say that I love it.

    Yogreg, it is a Large Mach 5. I see you work at the shop in Medford that i was recommended to take my Pivot for repairs. Nobody has been able to get my front derailleur working right from the get go.

    So far I like the Small Block. I had Nevegals on the front and back of my last bike and I was a little worried that I would slide around too much on the back. For the trails I ride, I'm sticking with the Nevegal in the front, though -- especially with the leaves falling right now.

    acej1,
    is the color of your bike graphite grey? is it as dark in person as it shows in the picture. trying to decide on color and the pivot website and mag ads show the grey as really light but i heard it was darker in person.

    Yes, the Mach 5's grey color is a dark graphite grey. The Pivot website pictures are off comparing to the actual colors in person. You can go to your local bike shop and check it out in person.

    1 X 10 Firebird, 34 tooth chain-ring:

    Post your Pivots here!-876.jpg

    The head-tube is on the tall side, so I've replaced the stem with a Truvativ and flipped it to get the bars down.

    Post your Pivots here!-880.jpg

    Would've preferred a mid-cage, but the decision to replace the X0 I already had with XX was a spur of the moment thing.

    Placebo-X - VERY nice. I really want to try that setup on my FB as well. When Shimano releases their 36t 9 speed, I think you can go to the mid cage, as long as the front CR isn't too big. I found the HT to be a little short for my setup, but each person likes their bike to fit a lil different. Let us know how you like the XX when you get a chance!

    Introducing Big Brown Betty. Very, very excited to add this bike to my stable. It will be my front range, do it all slayer. Pretty sure I am going to have to sleep in the garage tonight.

    Got some upgrades on the way, going double with bash guard and switching to med cage deraileur. Carbon bars.

    Then some air time and a seperate set of wheels for shuttling.

    Dude, between the camera angle, frame size and seat height, that bike makes it look like you must be 7' 5" tall!!!

    yes, it looks kind of tall.
    I'm 6.1 but have long legs, the stem is the one that comes with the xt build kit, don't know exactly how long is it.

    Love my Mach 5...

    Here's my new toy. I got it a couple month ago after returning from an eight month deployment, and it has exceeded all my expectations. I based my decision to buy this bike, and chose the right size (LG) based mostly on what I read in these forums...so, thanks to you all for the info and good advice. I went with the "XT Build", and the only thing I've changed so far is the seat post, for a Thomson Masterpiece, and adding some new XTR pedals. No other major changes planned, though I'm not sure I'll stay with the seat (it's comfortable, but a little noisy). Once my wife forgets how much I spent on this bike, maybe I'll think about a lighter set of wheels for endurance XC riding...

    Here my mach4 that I just build it and try it on this trail (28 miles of hell). I just remove all the component on my stumpy to this bike so she is on the heavy side for now (26.9 lbs). I am very happy with this bike.

    I'm lucky enough to be experimenting with some rear shocks. The ISX-6 because it came up for $200AU new and the CCDB because i thought i'd give it another go with the current spring rate and it worked! I've ben very happy with the DHX Air andi think it's going to be hard to beat on this bike, but it can't hurt to play. So here is the Firebird with the CCDB fitted...





    And this is how the Evolver ISX-6 fits. The main chamber had to be rotated 180deg for the valve to clear the rocker arm.



    And because i must have deleted my Mach 5 picture from photobucket, here it is again...

    Ok , heres my 429 .... it started out life as a MED Blue/White 429.



    I had a problem with the head tube size and it was replaced IMMEDIATELY by the Australian importer . The Pivot customer service is second to none , Chris Cocalis himself was sending me the emails to sort it out...very pleased with the service

    The colour didnt really matter to me and the replacment frame in Blue/White had a few days delay , they offered me any of the ano finished frames for immediate replacment so i got a black one.

    I have still got the wheels to build up , they will be the same as the ones thats on it now only red hubs in place of the blue. Wheels are tubeless with around 100g stans sealant (new rear 2.25 SS fitted today), brake hoses need shortened and the steerer will be chopped a bit more when i finalise the cockpit adjustments

    Weighed today at 11.985KG or 26.42lbs . Rides absolutely beautifully.

    EDIT: Updated pics with new cranks and hoses shortned

    I've found the opposite with the Australian importer. They didin't know anything about the carbon rocker arm on the Firebird being beefed up from the original design or that an alumnium version is available. I've spoken to their reps at events, on the phone and in a bike shop with little help from any of them. The standard respone i get is to get my LBS to sort it out with them and they don't deal with the public. Fair enough, but they don't seem to deal that well with the LBS. Despite a rep being in the shop when I ordered a new hanger for my Mach 5 i'm still waiting for it. That was nearly 2 months ago.
