Love it
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been on the Mach 4 3 times now, and every time I'm blown away. The 27.5" wheels with 115mm of travel feels much deeper yet rides like a rocket ship. Instant acceleration, unlimited traction, and a stiff yet smooth ride are what stands out most to me. It rides like a 125/130 travel bike but when but with XTR to 22lbs, it makes me want to pick up ST/XC racing again. The funny thing I noticed when riding with others is that people on the Mach 4 would fall way off the back, only to come FLYING back up the trail. It was so fast, it wasn't fun in the group so we kept sagging then racing to the group intentionally.

This bike feels like the acceleration of the Ibis SL-R but with the suspension/ride quality of the SB5c. The traction is like nothing else, not even the 29ers I've ridden. Well done Pivot, well done.

I'm the Pivot Brand Ambassador her at Competitive Cyclist so if anyone would like to pick my brain, feel free to hit me up. I'm here to answer questions and can always help with orders and dream builds

Despite the 125mm of travel, this is probably one of the faster full suspension climbers we sell. Maximum Anti-squat, thanks to the DW suspension, rockets this bike up hill. I would stick with the 120mm fork as it wasn't as supple as some of the others in the category like the Pivot 429, Santa Cruz Tallboy or the Niner Rip 9 but it can still hold its own with a capable pilot. If you're looking for a race/endurance race bike that can still hold its own when things get rough, this is it. If you're looking for something smooth, playful, and fun to ride the 429, Rip or tallboy might be a better option. I love to talk bikes so give me a shout if you want help picking out or building a bike that's just right for you.

A do everything trail machine
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is the 27.5 (650b) version of the famed Ibis Mojo HDR. Ibis kept the front triangle of the 26" HDR but redesigned the rear triangle, suspension link, and shortened the shock just a bit. At just over 5" of travel and 27.5" wheels, the bike will be killer for just about every trail condition. DW suspension on the Ibis's in slightly stiffer than most, resulting in a very efficient yet forgiving ride.

At $3499 for a Carbon XT full suspension bike, this deal can't be beat. Ibis is selling the frame for $2700 alone or $5500 with a very similar build.

We are building these up from stock parts so let me know if you want to check availability or make changes before ordering and I would be happy to help you out. Wheels, groupset, dropper post can all be changed/added before shipping.

If you have any questions or want to swap parts feel free to reach out to me direct. My number here is 801-736-6396 x 5630 or email adewitt@competitivecyclist.com

First (and second) ride impressions

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Fast. Very fast. Climbs much quicker than I would expect but I wish it would carve the corners just a bit better- like the Mach 6 or Nomad. All around techy trailbike? Absolutely. Full on gravity machine? If you're willing to work it. This bike definitely put Ibis in the class with the other superbikes such as the Nomad, SB6c, and Mach 6 though they all have their own pluses and minuses. Want to chat more and pick out exactly the right ride for you? Give me a call, I've tested everyone of them.

Watch out trails!
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Pivot 429c is absolutely my favorite bike I've ever thrown a leg over. It's not for everyone as this bike likes to be ridden fast, but if you want a bike that happy anywhere on the mountain, this is it. I've owned everything from the Jet 9, Tallboy, Tallboy LT, and Superfly 100 and nothing descents like a 429 while still climbing like a goat. It's a smidge heavier than the Jet 9 or the tallboy, but stiffness and geometry make up for its slightly heavier build.

I raced BC Bike Race this summer had good results in XC and great results in the Enduro. After 7 days of the hardest trails on the planet, we couldnt help but head up the lifts for 2 days of park runs. Okay, maybe it wasnt made for park, but it still kept up with the big kids.

Bottom line: This bike like to ride hard and fast. If youre a casual rider with averages less than 10mph, the Tallboy might be your bike. If you want a rigid, lightweight racer, check out the Jet 9. If you want the most fun you can possibly throw a leg over, this is your bike.

***Setup Note: Pivot recommends 30% sag. This gives you a very playful ride but a bit sluggish in quick accelerations and steep climbs. I prefer to run mine between 20-25% and still use all 100mm of travel. It rides like a whole new bike.

Ive put together many custom builds on this bike and Id love to help you out as well. Please reach out to me if I can provide our best pricing quote, help with an order, or answer any other questions. My number here is 801-736-6396 x 5630 or email adewitt@competitivecyclist.com

Most Capable bike yet
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

As Mountain Bike Action says, From this point on, any bike that claims to be the most versatile, capable and fun will have to beat the Mach 6. Yes, it is that good.How can you beat a review like that? Well, you'd have to make a better bike and a lot of people are trying but it hasn't happened. I've gotten quite a few miles on not only this bike, but also the Santa Cruz, Yeti, and Ibis bikes chasing the Mach 6 for that top position. Give me a shout and I tell you my thoughts and help you build that dream bike. I love talking bicycles.

Give me a shout and I'd love to tell you how this rides compared to the Yeti SB6c, Santa Cruz Nomad, and the Ibis HD3. I've had saddle time on all these bikes
