    Mach 5





    Old bike and some new parts.

    Made it a little bit more enduro-oriented.

    150 Revelation
    1x10 gears
    Works Components -1.5 degree "angle set"

    Bike feels now much better and the rear is lot plusher with needle bearing kit.

    Glad to get the input. My LBS talked to Pivot and Pivot is aware of the issue and has had complaints. Pretty weak really. I suppose the good thing is that I live in Texas - so not too much mud.

    It does pretty much limit my tire selection though. I wonder how Pivot could even fix this issue with out redesigning the rear triangle?

    Yeah - I've put about 50 miles on so far. Rides FANTASTIC. But....I swerve around mud or moisture for the obvious reason.

    I REALLY avoid riding in mud if at all possible, that is why I haven't ridden on the trail with the 429 yet. But, I would still like the option of running a bigger tire like at least a 2.25 back there for rougher trails, but I am not too hopeful. If they redesign the rear triangle, sign me up! At least my RIP9 has tons of room in the rear.

    Yup hit Daypond with Stump, we broke in the new jump line.
    Rode GV on Friday and hit the drops that my friends and I finished. Also 1 of the drops on the new trial on the beaver loop side, the 3rd on down, its over the wall and about a 9' gap.

    Lou, you crack me up. From firebird to Phoenix to ..... XC? You should come down to Bellingham, all the trails are riding flawlessly right now. WJW. BTW, can I have your Phoenix? I need it for Whistler this year.

    Hey,
    yeah I needed to buy a trailbike... I got promoted at work which is really nice, but they sent me back East in Toronto which is why I got the 5.7. I really wanted the carbon version but the decals are really not my style.
    BTW, I still have my Phoenix and loving it! You definitely need one for Whistler!

    Post your Pivots here!-imageuploadedbytapatalk1334207844.411520.jpgUpdate on Mach429. Awesome ride. Ridden about 30 miles so far, 10 of which were muddy and the brace right next to the back tire is untouched. I couldn't believe it after all the mud was gone there were no major signs of rubbing. Bike is surprisingly agile for a fs29er. This is my first pivot and I am not disappointed, really an outstanding bike thus far. Will update after 500 miles or so.

    Waiting on the FD today and ready to shred. Can't wait to abuse this thing!!

    I finally got the '12 frame and built it yesterday. The '12 frame w RP23 was 15oz lighter than the '11 with the DHX Air; Both have Lizard Skins carbon leather and clear frame protection on the down tube. After building the '12 frame with the addition of the MRP guide and bash, it is only 2oz lighter than the '11. I can't figure out how the MBA article on the FB had a sub 30lbs large bike. I guess lighter wheels, tires and a regular seat post, but then it wouldn't be as burly of a AM bike that I want. Oh well, I love the bike and how it handles. I also like having a 6.5 inch bike that I can climb, though it is not making me any faster in the climbs. The efficiency of the DW link suspension makes feel quick when getting on it, and I don't feel like I'm on a 32 lbs bike.

    first I was riding a small Stump Jumper (great bike), which was a tiny small and tried the medium and was a tad large. The Small Mach 5.7 geometry fits me like a glove.

    She's got a little temper on the quick switchbacks, which is fine just matter of getting used to. Actually I think is because of the new position I sit in the bike, which is better.

    Now for technical climbs, I doubt there's a better bike in the Market. She eats the tech climbs. I still have to play a little with the suspension sag to get the right balance between fork and rear. However, in general it is great bike... versatile, you can go from XC to AM and don't compromise anything at either end.

    This bike is amazing, I have owned many high end mtn bikes and this bike blows them all away. It climbs, corners, descends, is super stable. I ride in westen Canada where the climbs are long steep and technical, so are the descents, with lotsa roots rocks mud, tight twisty singletrack and this bikes eats it all up. Like having two bikes in one, a xc race bike and an am bike. Pivot did an awsome job.

    hi guys !
    what do you think about a 710mm width handlebar for the mach 5?
    I currently use a 660mm handlebar and maybe 710 could be too much

    I think even the Answer AM 720 bars would be good on it.

    I always ride a 660mm bar, and that's what I have on my Mach 5.7, but I was use a short stem, and also I'm a small guy. However, don't see any problems with putting a 710 mm in the 5.7. In fact I think some of the factory built models come in with 700 mm bars. My opinion is that handlebar width is primarily a personal preference, with the caveat that all bikes handle differently. I notice in your profile that you have a 575, my initial thoughts are that the Mach 5.7 front will slightly looser than the yeti. so if you have a 660 in your 575 and like it, I would start with that. Again that's just my opinion. I think I just confused you more, but that's ok..

    Ride with what you are most comfortable with and which suits your riding style. I use an an 800mm uncut Enve DH on my 5.7c it's great on climbs and spectacular on descents.

    What he said. Ride whatever's comfortable, and wider is more comfortable. You want a wide bar, you might not know you want it yet, but you do. I'm 5'6" with a small 5.7 and I use a 70mm Thomson stem and an uncut RaceFace Sixc 730mm bar.

    Here's a great article that discusses handlebar width in as much detail as you could ask for.

    Ready to roll this summer - my Mach 4

    My Ode to Aluminum in this Carbon Age...

    * Frame: Large Black 2012 Mach 4
    * Fork: 2011 Fox F120RLC
    * Brakes: 2011 Magura Marta, 160mm rotors
    * Cranks: Race Face Turbine 2X (40/28 rings)
    * Front Derailleur: Shimano XTR 985
    * Rear Derailleur: Shimano XTR 985 Shadow Plus
    * Pedals: beat up Nashbar-Wellgoes
    * Stem: Thomson Elite X4 120x0
    * Handlebar: Race Face Next SL 3/4
    * Seatpost: Thomson Elite Setback
    * Saddle: Fizik Gobi
    * Bottom Bracket: Shimano Press Fit
    * Cassette: SRAM XX Powerdome 11-36
    * Headset: Chris King InSet, Navy
    * Grips: Serfas Connectors
    * Front Tire: Maxxis Aspen 2.25
    * Rear Tyre: Maxxis Aspen 2.25
    * Front Wheel: Custom build - Circus Monkey disc hubs, Sun Black Flag 32 rims, DT 14/15 spokes, Aluminum nips, Ritchey snap-on rim strips
    * Weight : 25 pounds 13 ounces (11.7 kg)

    I wuz kinda hoping it was going to come out lighter, as I dropped some coin on a few light bits. I already had the wheelset built, it weighs around 1535g. All OK with me if the extra grams equal durability - that's why I chose a Mach 4 over a Blur.

    Now - to hit the trails and see how it rides

In fact I think some of the factory built models come in with 700 mm bars. My opinion is that handlebar width is primarily a personal preference, with the caveat that all bikes handle differently. I notice in your profile that you have a 575, my initial thoughts are that the Mach 5.7 front will slightly looser than the yeti. so if you have a 660 in your 575 and like it, I would start with that. Again that's just my opinion. I think I just confused you more, but that's ok..
    I currently have a mach 5 wich replaced the 575, and considering their high pedaling capacity I ask myself if with a 710mm handlebar I could discover other kinds of strenghts for this bike, such a better descending control.

    You will absolutely have better descending control with the wider bar. You may also find your hands and wrists feel better after ridding since they'll be more in alignment with your arms. One thought for you is to consider starting with a wider bar like a 750mm. This way you can play around with different hand positions and cut it, if necessary, to find your ideal width (5-10mm increments per ride).

    Very nice. I'm a 650b believer in fact I have a 650b SS hard tail as my second bike, but never thought about venturing with my Mach 5.7, but will be interested to hear your experience once you had a chance to ride it a few times.

    Only have 2 rides, 20 miles on it in the last 24 hrs, but so far I'm loving the advantages of the bigger front wheel on my FB. Definitely rolls over the chunder here in AZ easier, but has also slow down the twitchy steering and made the slow tech climbs more enjoyable. I only run a 160mm in the front, so my HA went from 67.3 to 66.8; Feels good on the downs!

    Still need to dial things in ala shifting and headset and bar position and put on ESI Racer grips. If the 650b Crest doesn't float my boat a matching Arch EX will go on.

    Cool-blue Rhythm My Mach 5.7 build

    After my previous bike (Custom Giant Trance X) was stolen last month, a generous check from my insurance company allowed me to become a Pivot owner. I only have a couple of rides on it, and I'm still finding the perfect bar height and suspension settings, but it really is an amazing machine. I couldn't be happier.

    Parts list:
    Frame: 2012 Pivot Mach 5.7, black anodized, size M
    Fork: 2013 Fox 32 Talas 150
    Brakes: Avid x0, 180 front/160 rear
    Shifters: Sram x9 2x10
    Cranks: Sram x9 2x10, 39/26
    Chain: Sram pc1091
    Cassette: Sram 1070 12/36
    F Der: Shimano XT direct mount
    R Der: Sram x7 (waiting on the x9 Type 2 to arrive)
    Headset: Cane Creek 110
    Pedals: Crank Brothers Candy 3
    Wheels: Easton Haven
    Tires: Schwalbe Hans Dampf, 26x2.35
    Stem: Easton Haven, 70mm

    Thanks Clayton! Yeah, it should be able to handle anything on Galbraith that I can throw at it.
    Actually, I found out after I bought the frame from Competitive Cyclist that Fanatik was a Pivot dealer. For some reason they're not listed on the dealer locator on Pivot's site!? I've never seen a Pivot at Fanatik, but I clearly should have done some better research.
    However, I did get quite a few parts from Fanatik, so I at least kept *some* of it local!

    2012 Mach 429 Bearing Trouble

    Had to pull apart my DW Link last night. First to start off why i decided to take it apart. I started noticing unnecessary flex in the link when under load. Took it off to find one bearing in pieces, two that felt like they were 5 yrs old, and the other is fine. The one that blew up was rubbing my fram a little where they make contact. I am taking it to dealer to see if Pivot will help me out. Here are a couple of pictures.

    Long time reader, first time poster! Have been lurking in these forums for a couple of months ever since I first test rode a Mach 5.7 Carbon.

    I recently realised it was time for me to get realistic about the kinds of riding I am doing and enjoying most these days. The reality was my 16kg, 160mm 'light freeride' bike just didn't cut it anymore. I tested a bunch of bikes including Santa Cruz Nomad Carbon, Yeti SB-66 and Lapierre Spicy 916. But nothing felt as 'fun' as the Mach 5.7 carbon I tested. Although I ride up the hills these days instead of pushing, I still wanted something that would handle really aggressive trail riding and all mountain duties including an upcoming week long trip to Queenstown. Mach 5.7 Carbon frame and a custom build it was then! Thanks to the boys at ForTheRiders for helping make this dream build come true.

    The weather here in BNE hasn't been good since I got her so I haven't been able to hit the trails yet, but I already know this thing is going to fly!

    Frame: Pivot Mach 5.7 Carbon - Medium (red decals)
    Fork: 2013 Fox 34 Talas 160mm CTD
    Rear shock: Fox Float RP23 (5.7" of rear travel)
    Wheelset: 2012 Mavic Crossmax ST
    Front Tyre: Schwalbe Hans Dampf Evo Pacestar 26 x 2.35 (tubeless)
    Rear Tyre: Schwalbe Racing Ralph Evo Snakeskin 26 x 2.25 (tubeless)
    Cranks: SRAM X0 2x10 (red)
    Front Derailleur: SRAM X0 2x10
    Rear Derailleur: SRAM X0 Type 2 - midcage (red)
    Shifters: SRAM X0 (red)
    Brakes: SRAM X0 (grey)
    Rotors: SRAM X0 - 7" front, 6" rear
    Bars: Truvativ Holzfeller 730mm (might end up being cut down a little)
    Stem: Truvativ AKA 60mm
    Grips: ODI TroyLeeDesigns (black/grey)
    Seatpost: Rockshox Reverb 125mm
    Saddle: WTB Pure V (Pivot custom edition)
    Pedals: NRG Taster's Choice flats (red) - from my old bike

    Weight: 12.76kg (with pedals)

    Rotors: SRAM X0 - 7" front, 6" rear

    Nice! I would do the same fork with a 5.7c; The 32 150 has always been to flexy to me. I know the crown to axel length is less that the 36, but did you shim it down to 150? 28.1 lbs seems a little heavy for a med carbon bike, but you do have a nice sturdy build.

    Ride it hard!

    That happened to me on my Nomad last year. I think once one blows out, it puts funky loads on the rest of the bearings. So I had 2 that the balls fell out and 2 that felt like there was gravel in them. It happens - just press new ones in, ride, and repeat (the riding part)

    Thanks mate. That is more thoughts exactly. When I test rode the Mach 5.7 for the first time I felt that the fork wasn't a match for the aggro these things are capable of on the downhills. I am running the full 160mm. Pivot sanction it on their website now I noticed the other day although still recommend shimming to 150mm for best geometry. I like the idea of a slightly slacker head angle at 160mm though as well as the extra travel and stiffness. It is a little heavy but is built to withstand a bomb and is still over 3kg lighter than my old rig so happy days!

    Just found that in the Tech Info section. I think my 5.7 would be awesome with the 34 TALAS, but not for over $1000.
    Gotta get up to get down.

    Hi ruralbike,

    thank you! Took it out to ride today, crashed once sadly and now the frame has chipped a bit behind the chainstay,

    But it was fantastic, I did not really get to test the brakes especially prolonged usage of it but they seems to have great stopping power at the start.

    Thanks for the recommendation, I have been weighing my options for the next change , I'll try to get more tests done on the brakes.

    Dano XC - did you go with 2.25 NN on the back? RIght now I have 2.35 Hans Danpf rear and front. Traction and control are unbelievable, but lacking a bit on rolling resistance. So wondering (if you did go with 2.25 on the rear) how did it worked?

    Thanks

    Hi there. Yeah, I went with the NN 2.25 Snake Skin side wall out back and find that rolling resistance is minmal,grip is great on all conditions and its pretty light weight.but! It is very week in durability. I have already torn two holes in it form riding hard over sharp rocks and have had to patch it up and Ive never done that with any other rear tyre.

    Did you mean awful? The frame looks like it has passed hot air oven shock... (similar to the Giant, Specialized, ...)

    ... and if we just ... Pivot Mach 5.7 2012...

    from reading review from forum to forum.. my final decision for XC trail bike was fall in this 5.7 inch travel frame!

    this's a mixed group set bike
    - Fox Talas 36 160"
    - Shimano LX 2003 shifter
    - XT FD
    - SLX RD
    - Saint Crank
    - Shimano nonseries 2003 Hydro brake
    - unknown wheelset





    and this's my girl's Mach 5.7

    That looks freaking awesome. What size front chainring are you using? I think I might do the same to mine.

    I'm in the same boat. Have been looking for a single chain guide for my mach 5.7 (only down of this bike), but couldn't find one non-icsg chain guard that I liked. good stuff
