    Great deals!

    Trying to constrain myself on an Arrival 152 :anonymous:

    Can anyone compare the Arrival to the Pivot Switchblade? Everyone says it climbs uber well and is very "playful" but I'm curious how much compared to the DW link.

    not enough.
    Zen, not for me. Barrel, a lot more fun. I can see how trail finding could be tricky over there though

    Nice. Guess you guys are just special. I’m still waiting on a email that says they shipped something I already paid for…almost 2 months ago.

    Ask since it hasn’t shipped yet if they’ll give you the full 15%. You’re being patient they should do that for you.

    I don’t blame you, I picked up one and only have around 700 miles on my current XX1 cassette.
    So I may never use it, but it’s an option.

    I got in at $225, they’ve slowly been increasing price as stock decreases.

    Faveros are great pedals. You'll have no real issues with them. It's hard to buy "bad" power meters these days.

    I have a Sigeyi power meter on two bikes which is probably the "sketchiest" PM out there and they've been great. I've compared both to my 4iiii, my Garmin pedals, and my Wahoo Kickr and they've been accurate within just a few watts.

    Fyi looks like Pivot might be clearing house on their Sram builds. Perhaps Sram is about to be releasing new products.

    The updates are to be reviewed. I would only assume there’s no performance upgrade, but maybe a few grams weight saving.
    I mean we’re getting rid of hangers, that’s worth at least 15 grams.

    I’ve been stalking Pivot’s website and a few other sites with stock on Switchblades but haven’t seen reduced prices or sales? Any links? Or perhaps the SB aren’t included.

    ProBikeSupply set me up with 24% off a 2022 Blue XO1 Switchblade then this morning I see my LBS has: "20% OFF any in-stock, special order, and back-order Pivot SRAM builds!"

    Thanks for the link @neatoneto - PBS is out of stock. And the LBS that has one in stock, no sale, although its not a SRAM build. I still need to go ride this thing first to see what I think of it. Issue is, the LBS is three hours away from me. So, not sure when I’ll get up there. Maybe in a few weeks when I start holiday - I can go see my daughter and try the bike out.

    Thanks again!
