It's not the supporting I'm worried about, it's the grinding of dust and mud and crap into them. Bikes that spend a lot of time on NS racks on dirt roads or in bad weather get worn crowns just from being on the rack. I'd rather have a little wear in my crowns than in my carbon bars, but that's just me I guess. Right now NS wins for most bikes in the smallest space, and this rack doesn't seem to improve on it at all. It seems like the optimal solution would be something that hung bikes like a NS but only touched tires and not bars, fork crowns, etc.

All of my bikes have carbon bars - not sure I'd want to hang them by their bars and then rip up a dirt road. Seems more awkward than a North Shore (which isn't perfect either). I feel like the perfect hitch rack is still not available.

I'd guess that it comes stock with a 200x50mm shock, and she's running a 200x57mm to increase the travel at the same eye to eye. I've seen people do that on their Tallboy LT's.

Added a comment about feature First Look: Firebird 27.5 from Pivot Cycles 4/18/2013 9:01 PM

I honestly don't care what height Pivot wants to make it - I prefer lower bikes (my 160mm bike is 13.25", DH around the same, shorter travel bikes even lower) so obviously this isn't my ideal. I just thought the marketing copy was funny - since when has a BB height over 14" been considered low? Basically they slapped bigger wheels on an already tallish bike and claimed it remained low because they put an angleset in it.

I like Pivot's bikes but the Firebird has always been the ugly stepchild of the family and making it taller isn't helping - this seems like a band-aid attempt to move a slow selling bike by putting the new hot thing on it.
