    What Pivot is this?

    Liking the color but what is it, I'm not sure if this will be a new 27.5 or what looks good.

    Not any of the current production frames. The Les has a internally routed cable hole close to that spot, but that's not the shape of the Les frame. Also, no water bottle cage bolt holes. Something new, maybe the Carbon FB 275!!!

    Where'd ya get the pic? Their new stuff should be revealed very soon...

    Mosh1dh didn't you just post that photo on the 650B thread as well? Definitely wouldn't mind knowing where you snagged that photo. Looks Firebird swoopy to me. I'm guessing Dealer Camp in late July we'll see something. What that something will be...hazzaa!

    Hey, how come you didn't bring that out for me when I came down to fit the 429c on Tuesday?! Just when I start trying to become more of a XC weenie and less aggressive rock taming, you guys are going to bring out the ultimate FB that I'm going to have to ride! I think my stable will have a green, orange and blue bike in it by the end of next year...

    That curve into the head tube most closely resembles the FB and the lack of water bottle cage in the frame leads me to believe it it a bigger suspension bike. Maybe it's a completely new model that doesn't exist already!!

    I don't see much reason not to have water bottle mounts if possible. One of the reasons I went 5.7c over other bikes was the fact it had the mount! I use a camelbak most of the time but on short rides and races I like the bottle better. I hope they don't drop bottle mounts on future bikes.

    Me also like Bottles for different reasons...I do a lot of long rides, long trail rides and like to have my CB for H20 and a bottle for nutrition / electrolytes etc.

    Bike looks "All Mountain-ish" Shadow of pedal looks like a CB Mallet or some sort of platform... I vote 5.7 650B

    I'm sure if there is no bottle mount then there is no reason to have bottle mounts, pivot does there research and wouldn't exclude options for no good reason. #trust # yourconcernsareinvalid

    ... and what Pivot frame has the cable routing in that position currently???

    ... not any of the Machs!!



    and if kenbentit is excited about it... then there is hope for a burning carbon bird! only the FB has that cable routing...

    Probably a carbon Firebird as already mentioned since there are no water bottle mounts. Dashed my dreams for a 527

    I hate to dash all the dreams of the little bike people, but it is a 27" carbon firebird.
    End of discussion.
    (but seriously, it is. I knew a guy, who knew a guy. And his sister told him that her boyfriend heard it)

    It would have to be both like the Alu version "announced" at Sea Otter. Wouldn't it?

    The Firebird is the longest travel bike that begs to be Carbon since it is a "lighter" bike. Should be a good boost to the Firebird interest/sales. If someone bought the Alu 27.5 Firebird since Sea Otter they might be unhappy though...

    The only thing the FB needs (not even 650b) is to be made of carbon.

    We might have ourselves the KOM of 27.5 bikes

    1) Carbon Firebird
    2) Bronson
    3) Carbine 275
    4) HDR 130

    But seriously I really liked the way 27.5 Firebird rode during the demo. The bigger wheels make it less sluggish on the flats... but it still feels very plush and capable on the climbs and jumps.
    So carbon Firebird definitely wins my vote
