Pivot Firebird, Size L, 27.5

$2500 USD
Hey All, Up for grabs is my Pivot Firebird frame size L, 27.5 wheels. If you ended up here, you already know what the Firebird is all about. Fantastic bike. First off if you want to do some number crunching, here is the link to all the details: https://store.pivotcycles.com/en/bike-firebird-carbon-1 About the bike: I picked this bike up late 2019 from a member here on PB and it was a brand new frame/build. I bought the bike complete, stripped most of it down and built it up to my liking. While it was stripped down I taped pretty much the entire frame to protect it, so the frame is in excellent condition. The bike was ridden spring/ summer of 2020, 2-3x per week, here in the PNW. It was put away for the season around the October timeframe due to the fact that I started taking some classes again so I literally had no time to ride. School finished a few weeks ago and it's been out 2x before I stripped it down to sell. Reason for sale: After riding it in 2020 and the couple times I did this year, the cockpit is just a bit short for my liking. I really battled myself and wanted it to fit but at the end of the day I just needed something with a bit more room. I picked up another frame so this one is up for sale. It will come with the DVO Topaz T3. Incredible shock and really compliments this bike. If you already have a shock and you'd prefer the frame w/o the shock that can be accommodated. Also comes with a Cane Creek headset and the BB is press fit which was being used for some GX cranks that had the GXP spindle. Head tube is tapered (I was running the DVO Onyx SC up front) and seatpost size is 30.9. 148 Boost spacing in the rear. I made a custom rear mudguard for it as well, up to you if you'd like that to come with the frame. Will ship to the US, shipping not included in purchase. Feel free to text me or message me on here, but texts will likely get seen first. Let me know if you have any other questions, happy to answer!

The Frace F160 is Milled From a 70kg Slab of Aluminum
@pcledrew: Yes. The densities of the 2 are almost equal, yet the yield strength of 7075 is almost double. That can also increase with post weld processes. I think it could easily close the gap, most carbon frames already aren't that much lighter than their aluminum counterparts. I think tube design would come into play much more in this scenario, especially formed tubes. Thickness variations in the same tube, shape changes, etc. It could all be fine tuned in using FEA to really keep the weight down. Would you be removing "half" the material...likely not. Personally, I'm a fan of 7000-series aluminum. As well as threaded bottom brackets.

@pcledrew: Waiting for the industry to jump on this train...7075 CAN be welded. https://newatlas.com/welding-aa7075-aluminum-alloy/58449/ That article came out last year and really could be a game changer in the bike industry but I haven't heard much about it since...hopefully companies are exploring.

@christinachappetta: Adapt and overcome is correct. It was more of a "I shouldn't take this line in these conditions but I'm going to anyway because it's faster even though I can see the low line over there that's safer". I suppose it was a faster line to end the day. Some things I never learn...

Confirmed this last weekend. Day 1, lift access trail, dry, lots of severely off camber roots, high lines were golden, grip was good, no issue rolling them or popping them. Day 2 same trail, heavy rain downpour that night, tried to take the same high line at the same speed, instantly slapped down before I knew what was happening. Retreated to the truck for ice-pack and a beer, thankfully it was the final run.

@Bailey100, thanks for the post. Always a few rotten eggs in the bunch who have to twist things around. We all ride, share the same interest in this great sport and getting over this and back to what we all love doing with our friends across the border (s)

@AnimationNathan: "but how things are being handled here in the states, especially here in WA..." Not sure I completely agree with the second part of that statement. Although WA started with the issue, we quickly went into lockdown. I've been lucky enough to work from home since this all started. The state quickly moved down in the list and has some of the most stringent rules in the US IMO. As far as the MTB community, not sure which one you're implying is handling it poorly. I'm sure there are many groups of riders that don't give AF, but from what I've seen, the majority of riders are and have been respecting other people when it comes to the trails and gatherings. Could just be the places I roll though.

@N-a-t-h: Early season is where it's at in Kellogg, if you go later in the season once it dries up you're spot on. I used to bring the DH bike there, last trip I only brought the trail bike and found it almost more enjoyable (especially for the pedal back to the gondola!). I think this weekend I'm going to bring both as I rebuilt my Jade and Emerald on the DH rig and want to give it a test run make sure everything's in proper order.
