    I started to think about the color green that I have and size of bike, med. I have a 90mm stem on bike. I told my shop to hold the order until I decide.
    I may ask to have them ship me a black/blue color in large instead of green for 2 reason's.
    One-the matte finish on black/blue less chance of having paint problems again also save 200-300 grams of weight over the painted thick green color.
    Two- I feel just a bit cramped in med, if I have the large I can go shorter stem. My height is only 5'10, but I have long upper body with short legs 31 inseam. No way to test the large, my shop only has med demo. What do you guys think?

    I gather you're talking about the 429C?

    Unfortunately I can't help too much as I'm on a 5.7C (see above), except to say that it depends on your preferred riding style. Longer stretch position for long pedal days vs shorter position for more technical fun and greater "flickability"... Technically you're sized for a Medium, but I think either will work depending on what you're after

    Hope that helps a bit?

    That's a tough one. A large is going to feel like more bike under you. A medium will be more flickable. I'm 5'8" and I ride a medium. I'm a bit stretched out on it even with a 60mm stem.

    No noise yet, but I found an identical crack on my 2011 5.7.

    Must be a weak spot on the AL frames. I know I've screwed up a couple times in a way that could overstress that area. This is after breaking the swingarm a year and a half ago, so maybe I'm just tough on bikes.

    I was hoping to buy in the spring though, oh well. One last ride and it's done.

    Didn't want to make a new thread so I'll just drop this here, I did try to search but couldn't find anything definitive.

    Do all Pivots with a tapered steerer tubes use the same headsets? When I get my M6 frame/fork I want to just transfer most of my parts from my broken AL M5.7 to the M6, including the headset.

    It'll fit, right?

    Yes they both use
    a ZS (zero stack) 44mm top and (zero stack) 56mm bottom, or a Chris King Inset 2.

    For my 429C - 9.8 dropper, back up LB rim wheel set with aggressive tires, Syntace bar on the way. XT Trail peddles - easier to clip into when its wet and they seem to shrug off rock strikes, unlike my Times.

    On my Mach 6 I just took off a Fox 36 160mm and put my Pike 150mm back on. We'll see if it's as good as I remember.

    I think the Pike suits my riding style better. The Fox 36 wasn't bad. I just think the Pike has more pluses than the Fox.

    For my 429C. Second set of wheels mounted with aggressive tires - LB/240s/Aerolites/TNT Gatos. 9.8 dropper. Syntace 760mm 12 degree carbon bar. Still playing with saddle selection.

    Well, what can I say other than... OMFG What a brilliant piece of equipment! I've only had 2 rides on it so far, with the first being a 30km ride incorporating slow rock shelf tech, fast open chunder, smooth flowing trail, techy climbing, smooth climbing and everything in between. Even with it just set for sag (as I held off playing with settings to give it a small break in time) it blew the RP23 out of the water. Now that I spent 2 hours this morning looping the same section of trail to dial it in, it's simply phenomenal! Again a small weight increase (71g) but the performance is well worth it.

    And, coming soon (when I find the time to build them) is my wheel rebuild, putting the DT240s in the middle of some LB 33mm Rims

    But... TL;DR? Here's the pics

    Yep, what you've heard is true! Although, definitely not a shock for the "set and forget" crowd - this one needs some attention, but the reward is well worth it so far! I'm sure I'll dial it in even more as I get more familiar with it too.

    I am sure it was nothing but a positive upgrade but would love hear your thoughts especially how it affects climbing and if it changed the reach up at all.

    Absolute Black

    This was a great upgrade, Absolute Black 32 tooth Oval ring. Out of the saddle you can really feel the difference it makes when climbing, also saves 30 g weight over the Sram ring and spider.

    Put a CC DBAirCS on the Mach6 instead of the Fox Float X, its like a different bike, an incredible improvement but it does take some time to dial it in.http://www.dropbox.com/s/u28bclcc0f7...29.23.jpg?dl=0

    The 32 tooth oval ring, acts like 30/34 tooth ring. You can really feel it when out of the saddle no dead spots at the top of peddle stroke. I seem to have more power and climb faster, also less winded. My friends have noticed the difference, its well made and lighter than the Sram ring, just bolt it on!! I know its not as exciting as a new CC DBAir shock but well worth the money at 68.00 bucks and 15 ship. I really like it!!

    Oh thank GOD..those are the fricken worst!!! Key word: FUGLY Thank you.

    I rerouted my cables to the downtube like Zigzag did on the M6, and it works awesome.

    Thanks for the idea.

    I also added a 180mm rotor to the rear.

    Took a look at all the pivot bearings on my 1 year old Mach 5.7c. They're all smooth running and in great shape. I put it down in part to not using a hose or jet washer on it. Only washing by hand with a sponge and bucket of water with cleaning agent.

    I'm being brainwashed by the 27.5" wagon and keep thinking the 26" wheel size has run its course. Then I see all these other 26" bikes on here and remember they're the top end and still serve up the goods!

    So, I finally built up my Light-Bicycle AM Wheelset and got the tyres installed. brought the bike down another couple of hundred grams, but don't have an actual weight just yet as it's still dirty as!

    Hey dgw7000,

    I'm in the process of converting to 1x10 SRAM xo drivetrain. What oval ring did you go with?
    Thanks

    How good are the DHRII There's one of the front of my 5.7C, only a couple of rides in but I'm well impressed compared to the Hans Dampf it replaced. Just as much grip to my mind, but not as much of a pig to pedal around!

    What have you done to your Pivot Cycle lately?

    I really have high hopes that the DHRII on the F&R is going to be the holy grail setup. I've been searching for years for a tire that grips our sandy loose over hard trails in SoCal. I found a great setup with a HRII dual compound F / DHRII compound R combo. But my HRII was heavy (almost 900g) and was not as good a rolling tire as the DHRII. If the DHRII lives up to my expectations I may actually keep a tire long enough to wear it out.

    I think the only other tire I could wish for is a dual compound DHRII to use on the rear. (Maxxis doesn't currently offer this one.) My 3C side knobs are getting pretty chewed up after 3 mos. on the rear.

    The Maxxis EXO TR casings are hands down the best I've ridden. A perfect balance of tough sidewalls, weight, and suppleness. Setting them up tubeless on WTB Frequency wheels is so simple. They snap right on the bead when mounting, yet come off with just the right amount of thumb pressure when removing. I've had combos on both ends of the spectrum. Some tires won't air up tubeless no matter what trick I try and I've had tires that I had to cut the bead to get them off the wheel. So frustrating when those situations happen.

    They are fantastic. The NOX rims are super stiff and the i9 hubs have a super quick engagement. They were built by Dave Thomas of Speed Dream Wheels. Highly recommended.

    Double the recommendation on the nox i9 combo from Dave. He built me a set for my Les and wow! They transform the bike vs the stock ones night and day.

    Installed a new bar. Went slightly wider from a ODI 700EX 737mm (with the Wingtip extensions) to a Azonic Flow 750mm. 2010 Mach 5 is going on 5 years. This thing came with a 90mm stem and some 660 bars back in the day.
