Selling my 2017 Specialized Pitch Sport. Size L. I've had it since 2016 and purchased a different bike in 2017. Since then, I haven't ridden it very much and want space for a project bike.

This bike is a lot of fun for tearing up XC type trails and can hold it's own when the trail gets rough. I've ridden this thing all over the south bay area, it will easily climb and descent everything from Jones, Limekiln/Priest Rock, Mt. Umunhum, Saratoga Gap, Long Ridge Loop, and everything in between. The 3x8 drivetrain is great for flying down pavement & gives you a much higher top-end than my 2x11 or 1x11 set-ups.

It's got a lot of upgrades that really help it descend with a lot more confidence than a budget XC-oriented bike should have. That includes a rockshox recon air fork instead of the really crappy and heavy Suntour XCM fork, 180mm discs, a dropper post (not in the photo), shorter stem and a riser bar to help the bike feel more stable on descents.

I can include the stock hardware on request.
