    I think it's ready to ride man! I think the fork and wheels will be your biggest weak links, but it's not an emergency. Get out there and ride it!

    Essential accessories would be the norm for mountain biking IMO, patch kit, extra tube, multi tool, pump and co2 pump.

    As to the bike, ride it and see how things feel/go for a month or two. I'd look to try and go tubeless as soon as possible, whether a stan's kit on your stock wheels or new wheels. Reality is no one can say what your riding style is and how individual mods/upgrades will do for you. I'm only certain tubeless is awesome.

    XCals are great bikes. A friend got an XCal6 late last year and it has been outstanding. Another friend just got an XCal8.
