Pivot Mach 6
Starting with the excellent Mach 5.7, US brand Pivot have spent the last two years redesigning the bike around 650B wheels, resulting in the new Mach 6. See what they’ve done with the name there? It carries over the full carbon frame and massively oversized tube profiles, and uses the latest version of Dave Weagle’s DW-Link. Changes here include a new wishbone lower shock mount wrapped neatly around the seat tube and attached to the seat stays, driving the Fox shock.
Travel produced at the rear wheel is 155mm and the head angle is a slack 66 degrees, combined with a 13.6in bottom bracket. The frame will take a chainguide with the inclusion of ISCG 05 tabs on the bottom bracket shell.
