    Buy this bike blows the competition (Santa Cruz) away -- Pivot makes amazing bikes

    Pros
    Amazing climber and even better going down -- smooth as silk.

    This is the one and only bike that I have owned that can do it all. Tight singletrack, climb, enjoy bike parks ect...My bike is stealth black, XO drive train, FOX Float X shock and a Pike fork, also XT Brakes. Total weight with xpedo baldwin pedals is 27.9 pounds

    Pros
    This bike is truly the jack of all trades, it climbs like a mountain goat, DW Link is the key factor here. It is very plush and fast when pointed down as well.

    Cons
    Shock linkage develops squeak over time, can be fixed with some lube and a torque wrench.

    Highly recommended! This bike will make you want to ride every day of the week.

    Pros
    Eats up anything you're willing to throw it into in chunky/techy downhill sections. Builds confidence from the first ride.

    Cons
    Cable management needs some finesse to minimize cable rub on the frame

    I've built this bike up at 27.5 pounds with the following: ibis 741 wheelset, maxxis ikon front, conti race king rear (more on that choice in a minute), fox 34 160 pushed, XX1 group set, hope tech 3 E4 brakes, answer carbon bars, Thompson dropper post, wtb pure V seat.

    This is replacing my much loved mach 5.7 aluminum. Everything the mach 5.7 was amazing at, this bike improves upon! I find it easier to pedal uphill, way smoother on the downs! I really didn't think you couldn't do any better than the 5.7. I did drink the 27.5 koolaide, and I figured I'd jump on the side rim thing too (those are amazing as well). So I built this bike up, then we moved to wichita Kansas...I'm told kansas is the 7th flattest state, but wichita itself has NO HILLS... Big bummer with a bike that is touted as an amazing downhill bike. However, I was simply floored with this bikes ability to accelerate and maintain speed on flats! Don't worry, I've ridden it in northwest arkansas and southwest Missouri on the worst it can throw, and it just simply shines. If you were like me and worried about climbing capabilities, forget it! You'll forget you're even on a 6 inch travel bike...until you need it, and it's there! I don't know if you've ever heard of the ouachita challenge, but I would ride it in that race in a heartbeat!

    Pros
    Great climbing
    Great descending
    Smooth and quiet
    Travel to spare

    Cons
    Cable wiring isn't "ideal" but I can see why it's that way
