We haven't set pricing yet.
The current plan is to have these available for sale in January of 2011.
Stay tuned to the website and Facebook page and we will let you know any updates.

My advice is to be patient as its going to be worth the wait. I got to jump on one in Whistler last week and I was blown away by the ride. I was expecting it to be similar to my '10 Glory but there is no comparison. Fast, fun bike!

Pivot are still working on the CAD and FEA models that will restrict shock access even more, while having an even larger glory hole for rocks to smash into the compression adjusters on an RC4. It's similar to a tree falling in a forest. If your shock dies when a rock hits it, will anyone even care? Why can't the shock mounting be like on the firebird? It's easy to work on, and doesn't get much crap flung into it. Then there are the redundant optional replacement rear dropouts that allow you to adjust the head angle just as the headset included in the frame does, and will cost way more than a simple hanger when you bust one with your derailleur, like the $200 dollar Intense ones. Hell, the one thing I've always wanted with my sunday was adjustability so I could run 69 degree head angles and fifteen and a half inch bottom bracket heights and pretend it's fifteen years ago.

I'm going to replace my sunday with a new dw link DH frame, but it's not going to be a pivot if it's as decribed. Starts with a D and ends with HR. My firebird's been a gem, the best bike I've owned so far overall. I've had some slight niggles living with it, but the phoenix has issues I don't wan't to deal with just looking at it. Why no raw and anodised options either? Black or white paint only? Who was the graphic designer on this? Henry Ford? Intense are a smaller boutique outfit, they have colours. Did red China suddenly place a paint embargo on Taiwan?

No idea what you are talking about with the shock access thing. The Phoenix is one of the easiest bikes I've ever worked on when it comes to shock access (and my entire testing program is dependant on shock access)

Speedgoat might toss in a headset and free shipping, with the frame.

This price is for a complete frame with a RC4 shock. Dealers can also buy from us the Cane Creek Angle Set headset from us. I don't have an MSRP on that yet. We can take orders on these now, but the frames will not be available until Jan 2011.

So I guess it's safe to say that this seasons testing resulted in few to zero problems with the design?

Why did it take Turner soooooo long with the DHR?

It's amazing how much better this bike would look with a straight toptube.

Frame will ship with a Angle Set HS, and 2 extra lower cups so you can fine tune the your angles...

Hey Dan,

Curious, why only the .5 and 1.0 cups? Are the cups available aftermarket if someone wanted to say run the 1.5?
