This is a big one! Pivot will be bringing a truck full of awesome to town on Thursday, July 21st! If you’ve dreamed about throwing a leg over one of their works of art, now is your chance!
The Pivot Demo trailers travel the country year-round to showcase their incredible lineup. Their demo fleets feature the Switchblade, Mach 429 Trail, Mach 4 Carbon, Mach 6 Carbon and Aluminum!
If you haven’t heard of Pivot Cycles, crawl out from under your rock and check out some of our posts about them, or check out this little blurb from Pivot’s President/CEO – Chris Cocalis
Since launching Pivot in 2007 we have continually pushed the boundaries of what is possible in bike design and technology. When we see an area that can be improved or where we can bring a performance gain to our customers, we pursue it aggressively, both inside and outside our company. We work closely with our partners like Shimano, Fox, DT Swiss, Maxxis, WTB, KS, Reynolds and of course Dave Weagle (dw-link®) as well as many others within the sport to achieve our goal of developing a better bike (not just a better Pivot frame) and it shows in our current generation of Pivot products.
We are always reaching to achieve the next level, so we’ve added two in-house 3D printing machines to further this goal and grow our capabilities. In addition to our strong CNC machining capabilities and in-house manufacturing to develop new models and machine high-tolerance hardware, we handle initial production runs and build race team bikes and prototypes. We also manufacture the production tooling for many of our models. With 3D printing, we now have the ability to see and test new concepts and ideas more quickly and to dream even bigger than ever before.
We are a technology and performance-driven company but advancing technology is not why we’re here. We never want to lose sight of what we do and why we do it. Our goal is simply to build the best-performing cycling products in the world. It is not good enough to be one of the best. We want to be THE best in every category we enter and we are confident that whether you buy a Pivot based on a review or test ride, you’ll experience our dedication, passion, engineering, and attention to detail that makes Pivot bikes and products the best. If you currently own a Pivot, then you already know that they climb better, descend better, corner better and simply feel better than any other bike on the market. This same drive to be the best extends to our customer service and support. We love our customers and our interaction and relationships with our fellow Pivot riders fuels our fire.
Pretty passionate words from the man himself! But enough blabbing, grab your riding gear and head down to the Lake Lillian trails on July 21st. It will be one heck of an event! For more details, visit our Facebook Event page.
Please bring your helmet, pedals/shoes, ID and a credit card to the demo event. If you feel like bringing the demo crew a beer as well, I’m sure they won’t mind!
