From a Fan in South Africa

A Pivot dealer in South Africa sent us this letter from one of his customers… LOVE.

Hi Mike,

I called you last week to tell you my thoughts on my new Pivot Bike. I thought before I put anything in writing I would take it out for a second spin just to see if my initial reactions were in fact founded on fact or fantasy.

In a word – mindblowing – what an incredible bike. The overall handling and maneuverability of this epic piece of carbon elevates it straight to legend status. I have never ridden a bike that responds so well to the slightest movement. For me personally it was designed to kill fast flowing tight single-track. It literally flies around corners and opens up whole new lines of attack no matter what the terrain. So as a single track bike it has to be a 12 out of 10. But what about general trail? Uphills have become a little flatter with this incredible carbon beast, especially when combined with the FOX factory shocks, the PIVOT eats hills like there is no tomorrow. On downhills and general trail the bike is super responsive and tends to fly effortlessly over any obstacle. I love the acceleration and speed which I have not felt before this.

If you thought I was impressed after one outing, I am even more impressed after two. Wow, thank you for a truly incredible bike.
