Basically, an aluminum Mojo (which has escaped my attention since carbon still gets me skittish over jagged rocks and what not; th0ugh to0 late for me since last year).
And with 5.4 inches of bump devouring travel, the Mach 5 easily smooths everything in its path, while the DW-Link’s “position sensitive anti-squat” technology ensures that there’s no bob on the climbs or out of the corners. - pivotcycles
Wise move Chris for forming Pivot.
I've always thought that the Exogrids of Titus is the best frame material for an FS, but the suspension is just to old.
Enter DW link on Pivot bikes. A tad better than the proven Maestro. (Which a tad better than all the other suspension design) ;D Peace!
Jessie, are you listening??
Yes, I am listening but when I don't have money, I am not interested ;D Pero I like Pivot Mach 5 but not yet available - it's all pre-order. 2008 BH bikes and Pivot bikes are now the babies of Chris Cocalis. Chris has something to do with the BH G4 and Connect road bike frames as well.
estimate of year model kaya pls? ballpark year model is fine..I ll google it but I like my Enzopedia more! thanks , bike sensei Edgar!
I second that, "Enzopedia" over google or anything/anyone for that matter ;D. Enzo remember Parkpre? I wonder what happened to their mtb line? I have a semi pro friend who rides their road frame, but I sure remember their mtb frames, pretty cool back in the day.
I miss your post, Speak of Parkpre and tattooed Pistol Pete Longcarevich comes in mind. They are the first who coined the lines " Real bikes for Real people" That's why I was wondering when Trek used it in the late 90s.
Or talk about Ritchey and Frischeneckt and Hank Djernis comes in mind. The P-21 and 20 with flexing stems. Or the Proflex of Bob girvin with the Girvin forks with MC urethanes or spring options.
But let us not talk about AMP which used one of the first suspension design that was patented and Spesh's flagship now (FSR)
@ brad edgar---how about the specialized line of hardtail FR which has P1,P2 n P3 model ---why its was called P1,P2 n P3---wats does P stand for ?- TIA
Honestly, I have no idea ;D ;D
But they are jumpbikes or bigboy bmx/mtb models of spesh.
They cannot cater to the big boys who rides BMX so decide to make their frame beefier with slacker geometry. It's practically a stronger mtb frame which can handle bmx big air with the benefit of gears. Trek used to have in their lines the Bruiser, same application. In the Giant models there is STP. Which again was used by Trek initially with their softail. Crazy world!! everybody's using everybody's term.
Kids have grown so big that bmx 20 wheels are too small already. Look at the Bearclaw Darren, his 6'6 or something. Way to hard for him on a 20 incher wheels. Look again how he played around with his 26 MTB. I am wondering how high they are gonna push the limits.
thanks brad egay just cross my mind...anyways brad thanks for the inputs regarding some jumpbikes frames....basically im fan of slacker geometry(Slopestyle) frame---it reminds me of my youthful days in bmx, i guess im just reliving the past so to speak....with all bike manufactures like versus, black market, who are all rider driven designed frames just pushing the limits by even designed a horizontal dropout just like bmx---with a single speed set up---an opening new discipline like flatland and urban cyclocross in which a rigid surly fork and basic a chromo frame...all things just happening so fast....a sthe saying goes what goes around comes around.....thanks again brad..
Early 90s, they want to take away the monotony of the model Stumpjumper.
The letter design is so first generations decals, unexciting and straightforward. The slanting letters came out about the same time the M series frames came out.
Di naman that much knowledged, dami lang magazine since then and Old cyclist ;D
you were right on the money, Edgar papi!
my Spez is a 1994 model according to firstflightbikes.com ..here s a picture of a similar bike
8 speed XTR with 48-38-28 non compact, ZOOM stem, Bullhorn handlebar,cantis and prolly groung control or Umma Gumma tires.
During the Hippie days, only Mike Sinyard is the one supplying parts for "Clunkers" in Marin county. The gang of Otis Guy, Tom Ritchey, Gary Fisher, Joe Breeze etc etc. Most of then started their company and afterwards, one claimed earlier to be the "Father " or invented MTBiking. Long story with a nice ending. ;D
Do you know that if there is a rice cartel in the Phils before, there is a bike cartel in Asia too! The big Three frame makers who dictates prices, delivery and frame material to use. I hope my source is wrong

stealthwanderer: Ayan yung matagal ko na gusto itanong: 1 Hour ride, mabasa ng ulan o' mabasa ng pawis sa loob ng kapote. Baka kasi ako lang nageenjoy sa ulan kasi may paliguan pagdating sa trabaho, hahah.

anthrax76: sa ngayon, mag jacket lang ako kapag umuulan at mahangin. kasi masakit sa balat ang matulin na ulan tsaka malakas makababa ng core temperature ang wind chill.
Aug 10, 2019 22:17:32 GMT 8
anthrax76: pero kung normal na ulan, 'di naman mahangin, hanggang mabasa na lang ako ng ulan okey lang. although i minimize kung gano katagal ako exposed. anything more than an hour, medyo delikado.

konablack: gamit ko two-piece raincoat, dehins lang sya ideal kung may backpack ka
Aug 13, 2019 7:39:14 GMT 8
oniechan: altered poncho..dahil ng backpack..bawas ng haba sa likod at sa side..mas malamig compared sa 2-pc na raincoat....
Aug 13, 2019 11:27:45 GMT 8
anthrax76: yung poncho, ginagamit ko lang sa climb or kapag naglalakad. feeling ko saranggola ako kapag naka bike eh, ha ha.
Aug 15, 2019 23:44:25 GMT 8
anthrax76: ang weird kagabi, padyak ako pero kahit may headwind at crosswind, swabe lang. parang tailwind yung pakiramdam.
Aug 24, 2019 4:32:23 GMT 8
lefty: Na experience nyo na sir yung pagbaba mo ng mabilis sa tulay biglang may malakas na crosswind tapos umangat yung front wheel? Nangyari na sa kin once pagbaba ko ng Southpeak. Mga March yun last year, mahangin talaga around that time last year.
Aug 24, 2019 8:50:45 GMT 8
lefty: Umangat ng konti na parang tinulak ng konti pa-side. Buti na control ko at di ako sumemplang. Nangyayari ba talaga ito normally? First time ko naka-experience nun.
Aug 24, 2019 8:56:30 GMT 8
anthrax76: hmm...never pa naman umangat yung harap na gulong ko. i get pushed downwind pero never pa umangat.

corollafreak: wassup!!! long time no hear dito =D
Aug 27, 2019 15:06:23 GMT 8
stealthwanderer: Hello! Meron bang pumapasok around Greenhills? If so, saan kayo nagpapark ng bike?
Aug 27, 2019 17:54:27 GMT 8
anthrax76: @cf!!! uy kumusta na?
Aug 28, 2019 0:01:25 GMT 8
anthrax76: stealthwanderer, dati may parking ang bikes dun from firefly brigade, sa parking sa harap. pero ginawa na yata yun so dehins ko alam kung saan nalipat. try ko magtanong minsan kapag napasyal ako.
Aug 28, 2019 0:02:48 GMT 8
konablack: wala na yung parking spot ng firefly brigade doon
