Ban the Berms? – Opinion
@velociraptor-clintthrust: I'm holding out on the 29er thing. I think it's just a fad.

Pivot Mach 5.5 Carbon – First Ride
@jclnv: Pretty big jump small to medium, yes. I'm curious to see how the long offsets play out. I've been impressed with them in the 29 platform. We'll have to wait it out for 275 I suppose. Having said all that I haven't been on a mtb with a 30mm offset. Sounds insane but I'd be open to try it

Pivot Mach 5.5 Carbon – First Ride
@jclnv: 67 ha, 73.5 sa, 420 RC, 445(MD)reach... So pretty much the 55 with a slightly steaper ha? You'll be bummed about the move to 51 offsets on 27.5 forks too then.

Pivot Mach 5.5 Carbon – First Ride
@jclnv: My medium Enduro 29 was 420 and my MD Bronson is 426....both feel great. Again what works for you and your trails doesn't make a very progressive and very current geo bike "dated" because it's not absolutely ideal for you. I stand by my statement it's a insanely long reach because it is relative to most bikes out there.

Pivot Mach 5.5 Carbon – First Ride
@jclnv: RC looks spot on and I think their on to something sa wise considering that insanely long reach(imagine folks will slide their saddles forward on the rails anyways). As for the head angle and given the rear travel you'll probably run 15% sag on that 36. Puts that 66 and change Ha on par for course for progressive trail bikes these days. To each their own and what probably would work best for them and theirs terrain though.

I imagine you can't go wrong with either of those bikes

Dated geo? I'm guessing you did everything shy of actually looking at the geo chart?

Ya man keep shoulder knobs on the shoulders. They care about leaning the bike over hence the rim widths they're running
