Product Description

With both mid-sized wheels and enduro being the buzz-worthy topics of the year, it comes with little surprise that the Pivot Mach 6 has garnered so much attention. With a lightweight carbon fiber frame, and enduro-tuned DW Link suspension, it has everything that you could ask for to haul the mail...

Strengths:    -Amazingly composed on gnarly descents.. Makes up for my vast lack of bike skills!
-Light, Stiff and Quiet
-DW link stays active but still cancels out pedal Bob
-Somehow still climbs surprisingly well despite slack geometry


Weaknesses:    - It's one of the most expensive frames in the category
- Cable routing is messy (in Pivot's defence, there's not many options with the suspension layout)


Bottom Line:   
Got this frame just before Xmas and built it up with a set of 160mm Rockshox Pikes up front and 1x10 Shimano XT group set. The finished bike is just over 12kg with pedals!
It pedals very well for a 155mm Travel bike. On the downs it gets better the harder it is pushed with a very forgiving nature. It doesn't charge up hills quite as quickly as a Pivot Mach 5.7 but it's not far off (even with a 66 degree H/A and q60mm forks). In every other situation it's a complete beast and can handle DH work as well as all day trail rides. Amazing machine.

Mach 6 a Marathon XC Racing Machine?

Do you think the Mach 6 could be made into a marathon class XC racing machine? I’m sure it’s a little long in travel for pure XC racing, but for the longer races, 4-5 of travel are the bees knees for all day comfort, saving the back and legs on the really long ones. Would 6 inches be even better i ... Read More »

Pivot Announces Mach 6 Carbon!!!

We've been hoping for some time. 27.5 wheels. 6.1 inches rear travel. 160mm up front OK. Horizontal shock with clever wishbone mount. Tight rear triangle. Target price? (Can they keep frame under $3k?) Availability? (Interbike? Sea Otter 2014?) Tire clearance? Nothing yet... Vital ... Read More »
