  • Reviewing Pivot Trail 429:
    ****

    The Trail is a great bike for all-day rides. If it could drop a few pounds, it would make a great marathon race bike.

    Pros
    Efficient pedaler
    Great technical climber
    Confident on descents
    Stiff frame

    Cons
    Heavy for a full carbon bike
    BB drops too low with plus wheels

    Would recommend for XC or Trail duties. Climbs great and descends well. Fun on every trail I have had it on. Seems to give you the feeling you have more than 4" of travel.

    Pros
    Can be a trail, XC bike or both
    Great pedal platform
    light for its stiffness and sense of strength

    Cons
    Can't think of any

    Super awesome 4inch travel trail bike, great for those who love climbing but still want to be able to descend. But truly best for those in the east who have lots of rolling technical terrain it'll keep you moving fast!

    Pros
    Light
    Climbs well
    Makes tighter corners than a 29er usually does

    Cons
    still a 29er wheelbase
    Sits a bit more upright than I usually like

    After demoing many bikes, this one was a no brainer, it just felt "right" from the beginning and inspired confidence from that moment on.

    Pros
    Great handling, like it's on rails, very nimble for a 29er
    Obstacles... what obstacles?
    Soaks up roots, rocks, etc
    Very fast downhill

    Cons
    Price (but you get what you pay for)
    Heavier than my 26" hardtail
