People’s Upgrade Choice Award Mountain

mach5.7carbon

Pivot Mach 5 Carbon

The Pivot Mach 5(.7?) Carbon was chosen as the best upgrade due to users upgrading the stock 26″ wheels to 27.5″ wheels successfully on their own. Based on our conversation with Pivot, the upgrade has been so successful that Pivot now offers the stock bike in both wheel sizes. Still, we’d like to point out that the wheels and the fork are the actual upgrade made… not the bike. 🙂
