FYI. There is no right side up or down with sealed suspension units like the FOX DPS. Aesthetically I know what you mean, it looks upside down. But function wise, the shock doesn’t care what direction it is in.When not opting for the Fox Live. Will it be possible to have the rear shock inverted? I hate to have it upside down.
haha I thought that was kinda harsh maybe but glad you took it well! I love Pivot AND Yeti, great for them to push each other. I might like Ibis best, though. This new Mach 4 is calling my name but I'm afraid I fall right in between their sizes now, so...

I'm using a KS Lev and happened to have one of the OG vertical levers. Works well for this application. On my wife's build I installed the shock remote above the bar on the right side (no pics of that on hand).Noah, any pics of your set up with the DPS set up with your bar-lever area?
No 36, but mine has the 35mm-stanchioned MRP Ribbon SL and a Maxxis DHR in the front (Rekon rear).So who's going to be the first to add a Fox 36, some DHF's, and Down Country this thing?:ciappa:
It's all good! I love Pivot, and have two LES' (one geared; one SS, which I utterly love), and am definitely interested in this bike, but I've got an SB100 coming, and I can't get the same deals on Pivots that I can on certain other brands, making Pivot too pricey for me...at least for a new bike.haha I thought that was kinda harsh maybe but glad you took it well!

It’s pretty awesome where these short travel bikes are going. One bike with say two sets of wheels will cover a lot of different terrain and riding styles. Good to also see that Pivot didn’t jump the shark with their geometry either.No 36, but mine has the 35mm-stanchioned MRP Ribbon SL and a Maxxis DHR in the front (Rekon rear).
I'll probably downcountry it even further after these next two XC races...
The only KOMs I've gotten with it so far are downhill segments.
Similar, but even if I hadn’t pulled the trigger on the Yeti, I wouldn’t be in a position to afford the same level build, with carbon/I9 wheels, on the Mach 4 because I can’t get the same/any discount on the Pivot, nor a good trade-in value on my Primer. So the math just wouldn’t work out regardless of how I felt about the Mach 4. Not to mention some nits with the Mach 4, like the remotes on both front and rear suspension (which is one of the reasons I didn’t get the Blur).Walt, something similar happened to me last year. After much thought planning and testing I dropped money on a New Epic. Not 2 days later Santa Cruz launched the new Blur. Damn if it did not tick off all my boxes I was looking for, but too late. Already the Epic was on the way. So just said f-it. I am going to stay with the Epic and not even think about Blur. Is it better than my Epic? Don't know and don't care.
I would do the same with the SB100. Is the Mach 4 better? Who cares? Your SB100 will still be as good now as when you choose to buy it.
