I have heard there are already proto type pics floating around. I've been all over GOOGLE and can't find anything. Anyone hear have the goods? Help a brothah out.
SVSocrates said:Can someone explain to me why 6.75" was chosen? Is this supposed to be a freeride bike? Why not 6.2 inches? It would match perfectly with a Fox 36 or Lyrik. I'm puzzled as to why Pivot would choose 6.75 inches.
The 6.6 has 6.7" travel, one good reason for the Mach 6 to have 6.75" - have Intense beat in every area.SVSocrates said:I get that, but it doesn't really answer the question of "why?" 6.75" Is it "normal" to run different sag % in the front than rear? Anyone think that longer travel, all mountain forks are going to happen? Could that be the reason? Rockshox makes the Totem and 'Zoke also has a longer travel fork, but they are pretty dedicated to the free-ride niche. I just find 6.75" an "odd" choice.
That sounds very nice. Hope they left tons of tyre clearance!toHELLuRIDE said:The Mach 6 is actually un-named at this point. Any ideas?
It will have 6.75 of rear DW goodness. They have been testing them on some of those crazy, rocky, AZ trails.
I hope it is available before I-Bike.
You should just go ahead and call it "mini-Sunday".el rob said:The bike has been named, but we're holding back before we share the name and more finite details of the bike. We have been testing two prototypes that are very rough esthetic versions of the bike, but mechanically pretty darn close to full production. Some cool features as you might expect, more travel, great pedaling performance, and it's crazy fun to ride when it's pointed downhill. More details to come, but probably not before interbike...sorry. :madman:
Ibis + lovng travel = nooodly, flexy, flimsy, POOP!Flyer said:Is Ibis also releasing a ~7" bike soon? So there will be at least two DW Link long-travel bikes that we know of. Good stuff and may the competition heat up!
