Pictures of you Pitch Pro please
@snoop I’m a bike snob at heart; there is this weird vibe you get from people on ‘expensive’ bikes, but I’m over that now 🙂
@PeterPoddy After I painted the flames on the forks (at midnight I must add, hence the hack job), I stuck some tape on the frame and squirted some gold over it. The flames were suposed to fade to gold, but I couldn’t see what I was doing.Posted 9 years ago
Go on… do it!
Amen to that. I swapped a Yeti 575 for the Pitch: It’s amazing how many people called me stupid, or just can’t understand why.
So basically, you masked it off and sprayed it, that tiny bit on the ‘B’?Posted 9 years ago
@PeterPoddy yeah exactly! It’s really easy… 4 bits of tape and it’s done. I think the colour is an old Ford colour.
Like you, I have owned all kinds of bike (mainly pimped to the max), but this one is just totally brilliant. I found the brakes a bit spaz though….
… and I’m thinking of putting some TALAS 36s on it

How do you find the Pitch compared to the 575?
Well, it doesn’t climb as well, but that’s to be expected because it’s heavier and slacker. It’s lower specced so the drivetrain isn’t quite as crisp. And being a Spesh it’s lower so you clip your feet occasionally, but the trade off is stability. I’ve had a Stumpy FSR before and loved it.
But the Pitch’s suspension is better controlled, the back end is solid as hell (I found the Yeti flexy) and I love the handling downhill. Solid and confident, an absolute blast. The Yeti was maybe a bit smoother, but the Pitch is more accurate I reckon, due to the extra stifness
The Pitch does what it says on the tin, basically….. But very VERY well.Posted 9 years ago
Add some 36 Vans and it would be brilliant.
Not needed. It’s fine as it is. The front and rear are very well matched IMO. 😀
The only thing I’ve changed is the grips to lock-ons (Which I already had) and I’ll probably fit a bash ring and a 36t ring. The bars are a tad narrow, but I don’t notice it whan riding. Even the saddle and seatpost are pretty good….
Yeah I could throw money at it, but it won’t make much difference and it’s defeating the object really. It’s a budget bike…… 🙂Posted 9 years agoDAVE66Member
Slim Jim Flats, the riding you can do on this you don’t want to be attached (unless you do)
Handles great but even better with some low rise wider bars and 60mm stem.Posted 9 years ago
Had mine since last spring and can’t praise it enough, it is built for speed more than climbs but climbs ok if you got the legs.
545 SPDs all the way. They’d do for the Mega too, though I used really old DX SPDs on my Mega trips.
PS the Pitch is perfect for the more local of the Avalanche Cup races, the Avalanche Enduro- this year there are two, Ae and Keilder this year, great fun.
Here is that Drop at Mabie againPosted 9 years ago
Yeah, they’re 160-130-100
To be frank they will probably spend most of the time at 130 then get cranked up for mean stuff, especially when we move to Spain.
This is the relative crown heights at 160 (Fox) and 140 (Pike)
They (apparantly) weigh the same as our Pikes, but I’ll confirm that. The downside is the price 😯Posted 9 years ago
