The Pivot Mach 4 commute.
Since I didn't have to return the demo Pivot Mach 4 to Bike Pedalers till close yesterday I decided to make the most of it and rode it to work and back too. It was sure footed. Quick on the hills and off the starts. It floated over bumps and sailed over curbs. I really only noticed the slower wide tires on the straight-aways when my road bike would have had an advantage. The extra effort pedaling, though nominal, was made up for with extra comfort. If you'd rather take a couple more minutes to get there, but not feel like you've had your fillings rattled out of your teeth you might be just as happy using something like the Pivot Mach 4 in town as well as on the single track.
