It’s day three of our month long focus on 29ers, with a daily 29er bike showcase the central theme.
We’ve featured a Trek Fisher and a Cannondale so far, here is today’s offering.
Pivot Mach 429
What makes it special?
Dave Weagle’s DW-Link is used to good effect on the Mach 429, with two short linkages connecting the front triangle and the swingarm with 100mm of very efficient suspension. A triple butted aluminium frame is purposeful rather than elegant, a zero stack headset keeps the front low, a 92mm bottom bracket allows the design of a huge downtube, and the carbon shock linkage adds a bit bling.
We want to hear from you. If you’ve bought a 29er recently, or have a question, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org, tweet us @bikemagic, hit our Facebook page, or discuss in the forum. Or you can add your comments below.
