Pivot Mach 5.7 Carbon XT-XTR-Tricon-Pike RCT3-DBInline

$2400 USD
Price drop! Size medium, fits 5'9” – 6’. Nicely upgraded, well maintained (former mechanic, mechanical engineer), and still awesome. $7300 MSRP new! This bike is fully functional and ready to rock - even the suspension is serviced and ready to go. Tires replaced 5 rides ago - they still have the little rubber nubs on them. I picked up a new bike at a price I couldn't refuse mid last season, so this bike was taken out of circulation in July of last year. The bike shows minor paint scuffs and signs of use - no cracks, no rim dings, no stanchion scratches. The cranks show signs of rock strikes but are dead straight and threads are clean. All suspension bearings replaced with new Enduro bearings 4/2016. Bike is upgradable to 27.5" wheels with a shock stroke adjustment (CC factory can do this for you). Purchased locally at JRA Cycles, can provide receipt with my name as proof of ownership at time of sale.

That's how fast it feels like I'm riding, but somehow when I take video of myself it looks 1/4 that speed. Must be filming in slow mo... yeah, that's it.

Tech Talks: Fork Wiper Seal Replacement, Presented by Park Tool - Video
@zer0c00l44: The Unior seal press tools are great, but I found with the new fox seals in an old Fox 32 fork (my friend's bike) the new "Flangeless" seals still wanted to go in at a slight angle, despite the lead in chamfer. Ended up having to sink one a bit low in the pocket to get it back straight. Pain in the ass.

Santa Cruz Tallboy/Hightower - Review
29ers can get awful high in the front, integrated headsets actually have the benefit of reducing total stack height, which is a good thing here.

Santa Cruz Tallboy/Hightower - Review
I ride a tallboy 3 29er, and think this is pretty spot on. I haven't yet experimented with 27.5+ but I'm very tempted to pick up a set of Ibis 738s and give it a go, plus tires seem like they'd be great for New England chop. Thoughts, Vernon, since you spent time on both? The one area I've found lacking is long rock gardens - with the rebound pretty open, the bike still feels like it gets hung up on longer bigger rocks. Any further open and it gets bounced around too much. I'd love to have just 10mm more rear travel, I thinkk it would take this bike to the next level without intruding too much on the Hightower.

Wild Cross-Country Tech - World Cup XCO 2, Germany
@ChristophColombo: I think that's the nitrogen charge port - way too small to be a pivot (and if it was, it would be a nonfunctional linkage - the shock would just flop over). Definitely bent - at the shock and the linkage, it looks like.

Introducing the 2016 Pivot Mach 6 - Aluminum
I still love my Mach 5.7C - just dropped a Pike and a DBInline on it to get another year or two of life out of it. Still a great bike, but a little more reach would certainly be nice - kinda forces you to a slightly longer stem and a more forward position. Of course, I also bought it in 2012, so I can excuse the "2012 geometry!" Now, if they'd just make a 5.7C in true 27.5" (not the crap conversion that works with tiny tires only), with a bit more reach and internal dropper and cable routing, and I'd be one happy camper.

Schwalbe Racing Ralph - Review
Schwalbe makes great tires... until the side knobs get undercut. Don't even bother with the Trailstar compound unless you're racing, I wore out a pair of Nobby Nics in ~150 miles in dirt/rock/root situations. That said, if you don't mind throwing money at tires, you could do a lot worse.
