Bike Review: Pivot Shuttle

Pivot Shuttle

Two years ago European bike dealers told Pivot Cycles founder Chris Cocalis that if he didn’t bring an electric mountain bike to market, they would stop carrying the rest of the Pivot bike line. Ouch! When Chris returned a year later with his Shuttle e-MTB, it developed much fanfare. American bike shops suddenly jumped to the fore and said that if he brought that bike to the U.S., they’d stop carrying Pivot. Holy opposites, Batman! What a paradox. 

Fast-forward to 2018 and the bike finally made its U.S. debut at the Sea Otter Classic in an exclusive new colorway for the U.S. market. Funny thing, but now that it’s available, all the open-minded American bike shops that ordered the $10,000 bike can’t keep them in stock (as the old saying goes, “He who laughs last, laughs best!”)
