    Post your Pivots here!

    Hello, well here is a picture thread for all new Pivots .

    I guess we wont need a specialized thread for Mach 4 or Mach 5 pictures cause the design looks the same anyway

    Nice nice, a close look would be nice. Lol Mammoth Mountain, you are telling people your bike is a mammoth?

    Haha! I figured most people in this forum know what a Mach 5 looks like already so I thought I'd post a pic to show where it's been.

    And no, the bike felt nice and efficient on the XC trails. If anything resembled a mammoth, it's me!

    Yeah, most people know how a Mach 5 looks like but what makes people interested is the components on your bike and any mods that you might do on your bike . Not necessary to tell, some people will notice something different on your bike and will ask questions. That's how this kind of thread work.

    A rider post a picture.
    Some rider ask some things about the rider bike photo.
    Conversation continues.

    Also, it inspires other riders about what kind of component he or she should have

    mach 4 here...reba u-turn, marta sl 180/160, all dt wheels (240s / 4.2d / supercomp), frankenstein x.9/x.0/dura ace/xt drivetrain (yes, it works!). 25.4lbs as pictured, size medium.

    needs brake line/cable housing trim, i know. and i'm not sold on the silver thomson...thought they might set off the frame (which is the real showpiece here) instead of becoming part of it. whatever. it absolutely rips!

    I normally don't comment on the looks of a bike, highest performance is my interest and form follows function. I tend to go mono-tone with little flash.

    But you've done very well in balancing the colors throughout. The SP, stem, cranks and rear der look well balanced visually. And the red ties in as well.

    That bike must just rip up an XC course! Very nice!

    This bike just screams XC Race, What's the size of your frame? It looks smaller

    Thank you for posting everyone, keep them coming. I really need to get the camera and shoot some pics next time I clean up the bike. NE mud doesn't photograph well.

    My 5-month old Mach 5..........Fox Talas RLC, XTR Cranks, X9 Shifters, X9 Rear Derailleur, XT Front Derailleur, XT Cassette, XT Brakes, Thomson Post and Stem, Easton Monkeylite Bars, Ritchey WCS Headset, DT 5.1 (w/ Tubeless kit) laced to Chris Kings, WTB Wolverine Fr Tire, and Schwalbe Racing Ralph Rear Tire. It's pretty much my do-it-all bike.......taken me up some long climbs and has taken me down some pretty hairy descents. All I can say is that I'm super happy with my decision!

    Hmm, is it me or the small bridge at the top tube and seat tube size varies according to frame size and its length is different for both Mach 4 and Mach 5?

    Its good to see this thread is picking up some pace

    Hmm, maybe I see wrong, but the Mach 4 weight isn't that light, its more leaning towards the heavy side. if Mach 5 is around 12-13kg, then that is acceptable (good).

    Yea, my mistake. Anyway, 11.5 kg for an XC bike with today standards, that is a little bit more to the heavy side, but like you said, not a featherweight or a porker.

    I brought my camera on my after-work ride today so here are my closeups. '08 XT build kit with the following changes: WTB Rocket V seat, Joplin seatpost, & Peaty lock-on grips.

    I hope I never tire of this bike.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Nice dustin. Looks fast! Are they Sapim CX-Ray or DT Aero spokes? What rims?

    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.

    So current spec goes like this:

    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


    GO THE CARDINALS

    Aerolites. Sapim had a bad run of spokes, and I didn't really want to gamble with that. Plus I get EP on the DTs. Stan's Arch rims. Wheelset was 1680g w/o tape and valve stems. I9 hubs are slightly heavier than Kings.

    Pivot Mach 5

    Took me a few months to get this one finished. Waiting on missing parts, and the I9 wheels, but it was well worth the wait. First ride on these wheels will be on Thursday, on the original wheels, it was amazing!

    The Magura Venti-Disc rotors added a little more red, although more weight, but who is counting? (Front 180mm, rear 160mm.) Hutchinson Python Tubeless with 2.3" in the front, and a 2.0" in the back.

    Thanks! I had hoped to take some better pictures, but I always seem to be doing it later in the evening...

    Looks like my ride will be delayed until at least Friday, got to go get the teeth polished!?

    The wheels are amazingly stiff. I could not detect any flex with the tires off, when pushing on them. Should be interesting. The amazing thing with these rims, is that I was able to install the tires tubeless, using NO soap and water, and air them up with a standard floor pump! I was never able to do that with my Mavic rims.

    What are people smoking when they say this bike weighs to much for xc racing. You know you want to ride this one. 22.48 without pedals. And way CHEAPER than your epic peices of Junk!

    Sheesh what's wrong with you, it is true that for a XC 4" bike, the Mach 4 isn't as light as the competitor, Im not mkaing it up and they dont need to be any flaming or anything. Sheesh, emo peoples.

    Yeah, I'd really like to weigh mine and find out. Mine is bone stock (XTR Ultralight, Mach 5), except for I9 AM hubs/spokes to Stan's ZTR Flows, Hutchinson Pythons (2.35 front, 2.0 rear), 180mm rotor up front (both rotors are Magura Venti-Disc or whatever), and some ODI lock-ons...

    That really is 22.48 without pedals, no Joke! Thanks dustin for somehow making my picture larger. I have weighed it on 4 different scales. Its not that hard to beleive. The Super light build that was introduced at interbike is 21.48 without pedals. The frame with front derailler, BB and headset cups pressed is just under 6 lbs that is pretty competitive weight considering it has all that stuff already installed. Its a super fast XC bike it absolutly flies up hill with the light wheels. Absolutly Incredible bike.

    I was thinking the same thing. Bet that housing won't last long. They probably ran out of the pink housing, so just cut one a little short... The bad thing, is that one won't get any help from suspension sag either.

    How are the Hope Tech X2s? I just got a set for my Mach 5 and I have not put them on yet. This work thing is really getting in the way of my wrenching/riding.

    REALLY good looking bike MTBMark! I bet it rides as good as it looks.

    Thanks for the compiments. It does ride as good as it looks. =) I have been very impressed with how it rides. I was a little scared the wheels would look like a candy cane, but I like how it turned out.

    I have been a hope fan for a number of years now. The Tech X2s are the same quality as all thier other brakes. Getting them positioned on your bars with your shifters will be the only challenge and that is mainly do to it just being different from what is familiar to you. The best way I found to get them right was to put them on your bars, inboard of your shifters of course, and leave your shifters loose on the bars. Get the brake lever where you want it (which will seem to be WAY to far in from your grips, mine clamp down about 1.5 inches away from the grip) and lock it down and then set the position of your shifter.

    Being able to adjust your reach and pad engagement position is a nice feature.

    Thanks

    Bike shop in Phoenix, Trailhead, ordered it for me from their distributor. Seems like some of them are going fast - they were already out of the one with the solid gold arms.
