Hi I am getting Pivot Mach 5.7 aluminium frame 2011 model and am wanting some help to find out which front mech I need. I don't have the frame yet should be with me in about a week so wanted to get parts before it arrived so I would be ready to build upon arrival.
Thanks in advance for any help

    Etype, or if running a chain 2x guide a DM (if the chain guide allows for a DM!)

    according to reviews, you can fit a DM

    Yes, that seems to be the case - according to their site its now DM. The couple I have seen were both e-type. Maybe thats all they had hanging around.

    Cheers for the reply's I will look into the direct mount, I had read that it was DM but then looked spec sheet for built bikes and they were e- type . Which made me ask the question on here.

    Many thanks
