The bike is made by a company called Pivot Cycles beautiful. She is anodized blue with red bits all over. Here are some gratuitous bike shots, because I like to do that.
The ride was fantastic. I kept thinking, "I shouldn't be able to go this fast on a bike I have never ridden on trails I have never seen." On the other hand I was able to do it just fine. No problems at all.
The trails are fast and swoopy. The trail I rode was called Desert Classic and I started from the Pima Canyon trailhead in Phoenix. Lots of fun, and while a beginner trail, it was perfect for me today, I didn't want to ride too hard and I haven't been off-road in over a year, and then only for two rides on a borrowed bike.
So tomorrow I will go out for a short ride. Pivot is doing a demo at South Mountain in the morning and I want to see if I can score a free t-shirt by riding up on my Pivot. We will see but I don't want to ride too hard because I am going to go to a race this weekend. Yea, that's a good idea...
