Have I just seen my next bike? Do I?
Saw this yesterday and thought niiiice then the GF turns to me and says “why don’t you get a new bike?” 😮
The current bike (Norco Fluid LT) isn’t all that but it isn’t broken. I do want to put the kit it has back on my Ti 456 at some point.
This beastie would be way overbiked for most of my riding should we go back to the UK and it wouldn’t fit in our little flat in Gosforth. It’s would be perfect for my summer of Enduros I’ve got lined up, though I doubt I’d be able to get hold of one soon enough.
/edit – photo is from PB’s Interbike stuff, no idea when one will be available for import 😡Posted 4 years ago

My Missus only ever says ‘What do you need another bicycle thingy for , you’ve got (insert current number) already!’
Mine has stopped caring. Was fiddling witha bike in the kitchen the other day, she asked whose it was. “Er, mime.” “Oh, right, I hadn’t seen that one before”.Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
the 6?Posted 4 years ago
buy some frame tape
and look at the cable routes – apart from that they loved itprawnyMember
Unless the OP is slow witted and doesn’t understand sarcasm.
Then it serves the op’s gf right for being sarcastic. the OP clearly heard her say to buy a new bike and a new bike he shall have! Whether she meant it sarcastically or not she still said it!!
I have also used this trick once or twice before. Risky business though.Posted 4 years ago

I’m waiting for the Pivot Mach 5.7 Carbon frames to go on sale which has to happen any day now. They’re $2,800 in the US full price so if I can get one 40% off that’s basically £1000. It’s got to happen right?
Don’t think this replaces the 5.7 – the 6 is a 155mm enduro bike, the 5.7 is a 140 (145?) trail bike. This is Orange Alpine to the 5.7’s 5.Posted 4 years ago

I know the whole “what women say and what they mean are two different things” but they have to remember that men are simple creatures and everything has to be black and white not in code.
So if she says “buy it” then do it before she explains it was sarcasm. HehePosted 4 years agoSteve77Member

I assumed their move to 650b would be the end of the 5.7 in 26″ form. Competitive Cyclist were selling 5.7 non-carbons at a big discount too which seems to suggest the model is endingPosted 4 years agoJon TaylorSubscriber
Thanks for all the hilarious responses 😀
ir_bandito/Pukeko – cheers 8) hope you guys are keeping the trails alive for me 😉
steve – I’d actually prefer a plain carbon finish like hers, but can’t have everything
mikew/everyone else – for comparison, she has a Pivot Mach 5.7 Carbon and loves it. Part of me doesn’t thik there’s much point having much ‘more’ bike than her.
And thanks for all the unintentional/intentional comedy responses 😆Posted 4 years ago
