Steve Whipplewrote a review of Pivot Mach 6 Carbon XT/FOX 36 Complete Mountain Bike - 2015 on October 30, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Pivot did a fantastic job with the suspension on the Mach 6. I'm glad to see that they changed the cable routing with the newest version. The routing on the Mach 6 was annoying. After receiving the new bike, I immediately had issues with all of the rubberized leather frame protectors peeling off. BC/CC wouldn't do anything about it. This, along with the cables rubbing calves and snagging on knee pads when the rear suspension was compressed lead me to replace the bike with a SC Nomad (I love the Nomad). The Mach 6 geometry and suspension are great. Just couldn't stand the cable routing and the peeling frame protectors on a brand new $3,000 frame.
