Pivot Cycles Mach 6 Carbon Bike

We started our build with a Mach 6 frame featuring 155mm of dw-link suspension. We then placed a Fox Factory fork along with a Shimano 12-speed drivetrain. XTR hubs were laced up to WTB rims and wrapped in Maxxis rubber.

For the cockpit, we added OneUpComponents EDC System. This allowed us to stash a multi-tool, a chain tool and a tire lever inside our steer tube. Its unique wedge-shaped design eliminates the need for a star nut.

Shimano’s new XTR 12-speed shifters control our wide range 10-51 tooth cassette.

Shimano’s new XTR 4-piston brakes give this bike plenty of stopping power. We opted for 180mm rotors front and rear.

Shimano XTR 1X12 FC-M9100 drivetrain makes a standout appearance on our Pivot Mach 6.  We then added a chain guide from OneUp for added color and protection.

Find out more about this dream build in an upcoming issue of Mountain Bike Action magazine.
