[Special Pivot Mach 4 in Pink]
We had the fortunate honor to build this special pink Pivot Mach 4 for a customer who was referred to us by another great customer. This X-Small frame has the stock Shimano SLX Pivot build kit. We upgraded a few items including the saddle to a Terry Butterfly in white with titanium rails. We also changed the grips to the Ergon GP1S to help better support her hands. Since she is very light, we upgraded her wheels and tires to help reduce rotational weight and give the bike an overall better ride. Hubs are Chris King ISO disc hubs in 28 hole drilling and are anodized pink to complement the bike. Rims are DT Swiss XR4.2D in 28 hole drilling, and the spokes are black DT Swiss SuperComp triple butted laced three cross. Tires are Hutchinson Python Air Light. To continue the pink theme, we swapped the seat post clamp to a pink Salsa LipLock and installed a pink Lizard Skins chain stay protector. It was a pleasure to build this bike for such a wonderful customer. Enjoy the pictures!
