    New Pivot Mach 4 SL vs. other similar bikes (Yeti SB100, SC Blur, Intense Sniper, etc

    Just released this morning...
    https://www.pivotcycles.com/en/bike-mach-4-sl-1

    At a very quick glance, for a Large, the geometry, XO1 build specs and price are uncannily similar, if not exactly the same, as the Yeti SB100 (I checked because I have an SB100 on order; havenít checked the other bikes).

    I hate the remote lockouts on the Pivot spec; those are one of the reasons I chose the Yeti over the Blur.

    The Live Valve is interesting, but pricey. Hopefully, itís executed better than the Brain.

    Beautiful bike! Reminds me a lot of a Turner Czar in the looks department.

    I need/want a bit more than 100 mm travel out back, so am leaning towards the new Top Fuel.

    I'm with you on remote lockouts. Bah humbug!
    Whining is not a strategy.

    The one thing that might be tempting to me would be that CC at Pivot is notoriously after frame stiffness. This would catch my attention just because of some of the SB100 and Sniper flex issues I have heard about.
