Like new, impeccably maintained. Fork, pivots and dropper overhauled this winter, not used since. Fox 36 Kashima with TALAS adjustable travel. Cane Creek DBAir upgraded shock. Carbon rims, DT Swiss hubs, XT brakes, X01 shifters and 11-speed rear derailleur, MRP upper chainguide, Raceface Turbine cranks, Ibis carbon bars, Thompson stem, Lev dropper post, Ergo seat. Maxxis Minion dhf 2.3 tires are like new. One owner - middle aged engineer, had two kids since buying it for over $10k. Needless to say, not heavily used.

6 New Wheelsets from Ibis - First Look
I have a 2015 mojo hd3 with the 742 carbon rims, and snapped my rear wheel after about 20 rides. Not impressed. Clipped a rock at a medium pace, not that hard, with 31psi in the tire, heard a huge bang. Walked home a long way. My local shop was great but ibis offered me a crash replacement cost of $480 for the hoop, plus the build of course. Brutal. Decided to try a new nobl carbon rim instead, as I have heard they are tougher, and certainly better value. I've been a long time ibis fan... But not anymore.

Best DH bike I have ever ridden, but in the 3.5 years since I bought this bike I have had two more kids. Not ridden all that often, and I am middle aged, 'nuff said. In excellent shape, a little cable rub but that is it; still shiny and new looking. Serious buyers only please. Black frame, Fox DHXRC4 rear shock with 5 different weights of springs to choose from, rebuilt last year. Fork is a one-year old black Fox 40 RC2, rebuilt at the end of last year. Buttery smooth, no scuffs. Deemax wheelset - huge upgrade, like new. Maxxis Minions 2.5 DHF in excellent shape, set up tubeless. Saint shifter, saint derailleur, saint brakes, saint cranks/bb/cassette. Cromag Fubar OSX 780mm bar, new Cromag DH seat. Pro stem, seatpost. Race ready, dialled in, torsionally stiff, fast and smooth. Several sets of new factory stickers included.

Pivot Cycles Launches Carbon Mach 5.7 – Interbike 2011
I have a Phoenix, and I can tell you the build and finish quality is second to none; but the most important part is the design. DW knows how to properly engineer suspension on a multitude of levels, whereas most other brands just work based on feel and look. So Pivot have taken a great design (custom engineered for each of their models) and combined it with really strong, reliable bearings so that the bike feels and performs super tight , and stays that way. I have been through a lot of bikes (Santa Cruz, IH Sunday, Specialized, etc) and I think the Phoenix is the best overall build (with due credit to my Ibis Mojo HD) ; I expect that the rest of their line will perform as well.
