Mountain Bike Access Issues Flaring Up in San Diego County
Not only in the US. We are having this exact problem rising here in Spain. We still can ride pretty much everywhere despite few "fights" between mtb communities, trail runners, horse riders and (last but not least) hunters. From like 3 years now the local government from Madrid declared a big mountain area as a protected environmental park as part of the campaign for olimpic games. This ended with mountain biking forbidden from trails narrower than 3 meters (basically fire roads). Ok, all mountain biking community accepted that with sadness but still have lots of areas to ride. The problem began when hunters lobby (which makes lots of money and count with big names between their members) started to make some pressure on politicians for extending this regulation practically everywhere. Now we can find traps, signals of "riding bikes forbidden" (even when the law is not approved yet) and forestal cops fining and kicking out mountain bikers. This regulation based on inconsistent environmental reasons is being also applied now in Ibiza, Mallorca and more local governments expressed their desire to "regulate" (here is the same as forbid) the mountain bike riding

Pivot's Prototype 29er DH Bike and the Most Custom V10 Ever? - Sea Otter 2019
@chillrider199: I've been racing for years with Pivot and have to say that the first version (the green from 2015) was not very reliable. From 2016 until now they are flawless. Amazing bikes

I'm selling my Push Elevensix shock 216x63 with a SAR light spring (400). The shock is from my Evil Wreckoning almost not used during last year and the spring was only used once. It's in perfect condition apart form the rubber mark you see on the deposit made by the friction with the derailleur cable one day.

Field Test: Pivot Firebird 29
I'm riding the XT version for 4 months now and couldn't be happier with the bike. Feels fast and agile in corners (something I was worried when going for a 29er). I really doubt the carbon wheels and the XX1 group would make any difference
