Custom Built & Paint Pivot Switchblade 2021

Just to clarify, this bike isn't mine but I do have the switchblade. Lowering the fork and mullet would give you quite a low BB, which you may or may not like. I found that going to mullet dropped the bb 6cm putting it at 340 and HA at 65.5, even in the high setting. If you wanted to mullet I would recommend slamming the seat forward to reduce the wandering. I didn't drop the bar stack as I like where mine is at but that could help too. I have been curious to see how a -1 angleset would work with the bike as well. That combined with a mullet be interesting as you still get a bit of STA steeping with an angleset. Although I'll likely leave it as is it since I think the Switchblade works great for the trails we have around here. I found with a mullet climbing I was getting hung up on chunking climbs in the rear more.

I personally didn't like it. It made the front end a bit too wandery for me and made it lose some of the climbing prowess I like about the bike. It might have made turning a bit quicker though, but I always found the switchblade playful to my style. I'm considering running it that way at the bike park.

It has 10mm more travel but is steeper head angle (+1.5), shorter wheelbase (-1") than its "trail" bike. I don't really see why anyone would pick this over the Spectral next year.

$40-50 US per day Annual $300 (7 month is the same to me since thats our typical riding season in Colorado). But if its more than 2 hours from me I am unlikely to get a pass. Up to 5 hours for a trip 1 time per year (2-3 ride days per trip), 3 times ... more »

Well Dylan knows better than me, thats for sure. He pretty much gets me 90% of the way there and I only really ever have to change rebound a click or two or change a little bit of pressure. I'd call him and see what he says.

I didn't really need that, but you could make the argument that with compression removed you would get more supple off the top. I would start with opening all compression if you haven't to see how that feels. Then back off pressures in low chamber. You ... more »

My pressures are high because its a 2021. Two changes for that fork. 1) increase air pressure to handle the bigger negative air chamber (I think). All stock pressures on 2021 went up from the 2020 if you look at their charts. I started where fox recommended ... more »

Not sure it’s as insane as you may think , these drastically improve resale value because a clean Un-scratched frame sells easier and for more money! I’m very happy with my ride wrap!

These look great. But can't find these on Adidas or Five Ten site. If anyone can find a link or even how to buy these, that would be great.

Not sure what you mean. Colors are just a sticker kit. This would be whatever Fox gave to Pivot for their color kit.

DSD x Cascade Components are a solid combo! Was hoping to see a prototype RUNT in that 38 though.

How I read that is that renewable energy could fund this as well. A scenario I could see play out is that we have an administration that prioritizes renewable energy creation and any revenues from that go to trails. In that scenario I see that as a major ... more »
