An intriguing photo has just appeared on Pivot Cycle’s front page of a new bike – the Switchblade.

We don’t have any details as if yet, but Chris Cocalis, who now runs Pivot, ran Titus once upon a time. And around ten to twelve years ago, Titus had a bike called (drumroll, please) the Switchblade… Coincidence?

That bike converted from 4 inches to 5.5 inches of travel – might this one do the same? Squinting at the bits of the bike we can see suggests a full suspension machine with perhaps chubby tyres? Maybe the Switch thing refers to swopping out 29in and 27.5+ wheels and tyres as well as travel?

Whatever, in keeping with the rest of the Pivot range it’ll likely sport DW-Link suspension. Colour us intrigued.

Watch this space…
