The long revered Pivot Mach 6 is a bike we've held a candle to for many years, and that flame is far from burning out with the newest iteration of the enduro beast. Longer, lower, and -- dare we say it --even more capable than before, the 2018 Pivot Mach 6 Carbon Mountain Bike Frame has us wrapped around its finger with its 6-inches of supple DW-link suspension and gravity-hungry geometry that tracks though burly lines like a hungry lioness stalking her prey.

Keeping you forward in the cockpit maintains the liveliness of the bike, so you can flick and pounce off of roots and rocks, making even the flatter and more mundane trail sections exactly as much fun as you want them to be. As Newton's third law would have it, we don't get to enjoy those sweet descents without fighting against gravity on the climb up to begin with. Fortunately, Pivot partners with DW-link to get us to the top without squat and bobbing when we're mashing on the pedals up tight switchbacks and loose roots. Pivot's engineers ensure that you won't be stuck behind the back wheel when you're pushing your way to the top by pairing the slacked out head tube angle with a steeper seat tube angle to keep you forward on the bike for better transfer of power, and more control when you have to crank on the bars for that last push up a steep pu...

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.
