Pivot Vault $2,299.00
Efficiency at its finest.
Efficiency and versatility were two of the main objectives set forth when Pivot's engineers decided to build the ultimate cyclocross machine. The new Vault is the result, as its geometry, tube shapes, and intuitive features perfectly illustrate these primary goals. The frameset serves to redefine what's possible in the world of gravel and cyclocross racing, as its fork, brake system, bottom bracket, and hassle-free internal cable routing clearly illustrate the future of cyclocross frame innovation.
The Pivot Vault has been designed around the BB386EVO bottom bracket. We should note that this is for good reason. The BB386EVO bottom bracket system is a competitor-dwarfing 86.5mm wide, and it has a diameter of 46mm. It's been estimated that the new design increases rigidity by 30% and reduces power dispersion to almost zero. So, to accommodate the massive bottom bracket shell, you'll immediately notice that the new frame design features an oversized juncture where the down and seat tubes meet. This new-found rigidity is further accentuated by the frame's complete carbon fiber design. The Vault uses a full-carbon, tapered head tube and fork. Not only is the design a weight saver, but it adds to overall lateral stiffness while also improving handling characteristics. Now, vibration is properly absorbed, chatter is eliminated, and the handling is both nimble and precise. Ultimately, these design innovations amount to the Vault being able to drop the hammer when the time is right.
Our favorite new feature of the Vault, however, is less of a feature and more of an ideology -- placing the power in your hands. That's right, Pivot has provided you with a multitude of configuration options. The Vault has the ability for both disc and cantilever configurations. This is achieved in a few simple steps. Set up for disc brakes, the frame's carbon fiber dropouts are spaced at 135mm. An interchangeable alloy hanger is available to switch to a 130mm spacing if you choose to run standard cantilever arms. So, you're probably wondering what happens to the brake posts when you're running discs? Well, Pivot made both the frame and fork posts fully-removable without altering the integrity of the frame. In fact, when the posts are removed, you can quickly install proprietary plugs that seamlessly cover the conversion.
The Pivot Vault is available in sizes X-Small(5'1"-5'5"), Small(5'5"-5'9"), Medium(5'8"-5'11"), and Large(5'11"-6'3") and in the color Matte Black/green.

I'm confused, the pictures look like a complete-build, but the description says nothing about components. Can I get a complete build for $2299.00?
