Mach 429SL Carbon 29 Pro XT/XTR 1x Mountain Bike - 2018 by Pivot
You've probably run into the use of words like "versatile" and "quiver killer" when hunting for a new bike, and while some of that might be accurate, we think these terms are often overused, which lessens their credibility. Where these words are tossed around we often find bikes that are just-okay at everything --okay at going downhill, okay at ascending, okay at handling rocks and roots, but at the cost of never being truly great in any one category.

A 72. 9-degree seat tube angle keeps you centered in the cockpit to maximize your power output, while the 70. 3-degree head tube angle keeps you on top of your front wheel for total control actuating turns, enhancing the agility and responsiveness of the bike. The bike uses a short top tube, and is paired with a longer XC-friendly stem length to keep your bike lively and acting fast with every movement you make.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
