SC launches its newest generation of the Tallboy with more travel,updated geometry and the ability to run it as a 29r or a 27.5+. The 68 degree headtube and 110 mm of VPP travel gives the newest generation much more depth allowing the bike to descend as well as it climbs. That combined with the new boost spacing (incredible lateral stiffness)rounds out this perfect specimen of a trail/XC bike. Flip the chip and run it as a 27.5+ for desert-dry conditions or winter riding allowing you to shred with wider tires and more traction peace of mind.
We have frames expecting to arrive in mid- May so reserve yours today. If you need help with a custom build or have general question feel free to reach out to me direct.

The boost version of this bike is amazing to ride. Very laterally stiff and more agile this bike performs extremely well on all types of trails. Highly recommended!
We also have this frame available in the Fox Float X2 rear shock. Feel free to contact me direct if you have questions or want to order the X2 version.

What an amazing bike! I just recently had the opportunity of picking one of these up and I must say I am most impressed. I had the standard 429 last year and loved the geo and the ride quality but it was a bit heavy. I was delighted to see that Pivot found a way to knock of 1/2 pound of weight and stiffen the frame on the new out a bit on the new 429 SL. SO MUCH BETTER. The bike already handled fantastic but now with a little stiffer/lighter frame its super playful and you can really hammer the power and it gives as much as you give it! Fast and Fun sums it up. If you are looking for a light weight XC- Epic ride type bike then look no further.

** Not like a component on the Pivot complete bike? We can also custom build this tailored to your wants. Feel free to hit me up with questions or comments or if you need direction on configuration.

The F8 is one of the best all around performing road bikes on the market. It simply does not lack in an department and sure to give you an edge on race day giving you the tools to perform at your best.I have been on this bike several times and can testify to its stiffness, power transferring ability and climbing attributes. Its very highly recommended if you have the means.
These are custom builds so select components can be swapped or upgraded. We can also do this build on other frame colors as well. If you need help or have general questions feel free to reach out to me direct.

When the road ends the Stigmata begins
5 5

One of the best,most versatile bikes we offer the Stigmata is becoming a legend in only a couple of years. If you are looking for a single bike to do all things skinny tire style, the Stigmata is your rig. It rides well on the road, exudes courage in gravel and can handle any CX course you will encounter. Light,smooth and spunky would sum it up. If you have the means I highly recommend picking one up!

Below is a pic of mine. Force 1 HRD 1x11-Industry Nine i-25 Disc wheels-thats how I roll. Such a fun bike!

If you need help configuring this bike or have general questions fell free to reach out to me direct.

Pivot is sending these bikes out with a boost rear and non boost fork for the time being as the Fox 36 is not available in boost yet. However-we can custom build this bike in a full boost with a Rockshox Pike. Having a boost front and rear maximizes the benefits of this new technology and highly recommended.Contact me direct if you need help with a build or quote.

One of the better hardtails out there with a equally amazing pricetag! These are custom builds so components can be added or removed. We can also convert this build to a single speed as well. If you need help or guidance feel free to reach out to me direct.

** the fork we are using for this build is the Rockshox SID RCT3 solo air 100****
