William Paoliwrote a review of Pivot Trail 429 Carbon 29 Race XT 1x Mountain Bike - 2019 on September 9, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is literally the best bike I have ever ridden in my life, now granted, I am coming from a pretty old Santa Cruz Blur to this, but, mind is blown. Climbs like a monster and is just so comfortable on single track. I ride Skeggs, Waterdog and Santa Rosa for the people in San Francisco area and yeah this bike is somewhat overkill for that, but I am super confident this machine will rock Tahoe/Downieville, and anything I am willing to do. 45 year old rider here, so I’m not doing massive gaps or high speed rock gardens. That said, the little jumps I have hit, this bike is craving to hit. It wants to jump and it wants to do it sanely and balanced. LOVE THIS FRICKIIN BIKE!!!!
