Storm Cycles is the latest bike shop to open it’s doors in Park City and this past Sunday they hosted a demo day with Pivot Cycles. We were on the scene to lust after the merch as well as snap a few photos of the event.
Pivot’s founder Chris Cocalis launched the brand in 2007 after leaving Titus Cycles. The bikes have a distinct linkage and pivot design that is pure sex. I’m not typically a fan of bikes that sport the extra triangle at the top/seat tube, but the Mach 6 and Mach 429 pull it off with style.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get on a Pivot at the demo, but I’m looking forward to taking one for a spin in the near future. The Mach 6 is the brand’s flagship all-mountain/enduro bike sporting 6.1″ of travel, a 66 degree head angle, and of course the all-mighty 27.5 wheel size. Pivot subscribes to the DW-Link suspension design, which supposedly turns the Mach 6 into an ultra-plush rocket ship on the way back down. The bike comes in a few different color/paint options, and I’m personally a big fan of the murdered-out matte-black on black.
Head over and check out Storm Cycles who share a wall with PC Coffee Roasters at Kimball Junction. The staff is super friendly, especially the shop dog Blaze. In addition to Pivot, the shop carries Cannondale and Salsa who has an upcoming Park City demo day Friday (June 6) where you can get on the brand new Horsethief 2.
