2013 Pivot Mach 5.7 Medium for sale. I built the bike up from a frame in 2016 to be a practical full suspension workhouse, and have loved riding it in the spring and summers around the Okanagan. It's been well cared for, suspension serviced and overhauled at Chainline Cycles in Kelowna, brakes bled regularly, always stored indoors, and never abused, only made 1 trip to the bike park 2 years ago. Tires and brake pads all have plenty of life left in them. Bike will be cleaned, shiny, lubed,tuned, and ready to go! Located in Summerland/Penticton, but I can drive as far as Kelowna/Lake Country to meet. Please let me know if you have any questions about the bike and I'll be happy to answer, and please text if you contact by phone. Cheers!

Manuel Fumic's Cannondale Scalpel Si - Cairns XC World Champs 2017
@tsheep: Allowing fat tires on CX race bikes would be like outlawing mud. It just wouldn't be cyclocross.

1 Question - What's Going on With 27.5+?
I know it's kinda sorta literally your business to sell shiny bike bits and all, and you probably have a bit a stake in this, but holy hell. Step away from the kool-aid bucket and get the hell outa the cargo cult compound.

Check Out - April
I've got one (sans the torque wrench parts), and it's a lovely piece of kit! Can get new bits anywhere (standard replacement sizes), really solid driver, pouch is lovely, got a velcro belt loop on it, everything snaps in great. I friggin' love it!

Pinkbike Poll - What's Your Dream Gearbox Bike?
Are these all super cool? Absolutely, especially the Honda RN-01, which holds a special place in my heart for glorious things that never truly were in the bike world. Ultimately, though I would love a choice of a gearbox bike, none of them fulfill a need I have in mountain bikes, as I would get fairly little use out of a downhill bike or all-mountain bike. In a shorter-travel guise, 120-140mm range, then yes, I'd take a gander!

2016 Pinkbike Awards - Best Value of the Year Winner
It really depends on what level you're riding at. Your average rider, and most avid or experienced riders will feel little performance difference between low-mid, mid, and high-mid groupset levels, provided they're adjusted well. If you move up 2 steps, yes, the difference is noticable. But going NX->GX or, say SLX -> XT, less so. But here's where stuff matters. Quality durability. Not only do higher end components work better, but (there are exceptions of course, like with ultra-boutique mega-light stupid, but beautiful parts) they tend to retain that quality of working better for longer amounts of time. For me personally, I've ridden bikes with parts all over the map, and when stuff is adjusted well, it all works nicely, but when you own the bike and ride it day after day, the differences really do become apparent, primarily in shifters, which really are the heart of your drivetrain because they control everything. NX is fine, and it works, but if you ride it compared with X1 or X01 there is a distinct feeling of "it doesn't work as well as it could be". So if you're someone who is used to high tier stuff, and you drop down to low-mid tier stuff, the difference is gigantic and all the little quirks become more apparent to you as a rider. But in all honesty, for dependable, workhorse compoments that will do everything you want day in and day out and not complain, mid -> mid-high level is where you want to aim. XT/SLX, X1 or X1/GX. Putting it all back into perspective, all you really "need" to ride your bike is an SS setup, tires, and no suspension. EVERYTHING else is just a bonus.
