Switchblade 29 Pro XT/XTR Live Valve Mountain Bike by Pivot
In the last five years mountain bikes have progressed so rapidly that we've reached a point where most high-end bikes are a pretty solid choice, and it's hard to find one that rides poorly. That means that when shopping for our next rig we try to look for qualities that help a bike stand out from its peers, and after our first ride on the new Pivot Switchblade, it was clear this bike is a cut above the rest.

The Switchblade V2 geometry moves to a slacker head tube angle, a steeper seat tube angle, longer reach figures, and a shorter seat tube that accommodate...

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.
