    Pivot Les Fat

    I am excited. I just bought one. I have been lusting over one for a while and just got inspired. Got from Competitive Cyclist for net $3383 after Active Junky.

    Anyone have any experience? Keep me excited.

    Congrats on your purchase! One of the differentiating features about the Les Fat is arguably a narrower qfactor, though no exact numbers are provided on their website. Would you (or any other owner) please measure your cranks´ qfactor once you have a chance?:

    That was likely the XX1 version. I have some spare stuff I may use instead of stock. Need to start somewhere. I read that Pivot may have made about 50 of these and are rare. Maybe that was the first batch, but they don't seem to be plentiful. I am surprised there isn't more chatter considering the cool adjustability of the platform.

    Hopefully my X01 spec arrives this week, 120mm Bluto + dropper post and setup tubeless. No snow where I live so will be closer to an enduro bike. Can't wait.

    If I want to go 29+ in the spring through fall, could I use my Roval SL Fatties which are 30mm inside width?
