Mach 429SL Carbon Mountain Bike Frame - 2018 by Pivot
Often times when we think of short-travel XC bikes, we have a tendency to think of nothing but long stretches of singletrack, smooth, fast rolling dirt, and quick switchbacks, with riders dressed in lycra, but just because that's where a cross-country racer might bang out their miles doesn't mean its where the bike finds its limit.

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.
