    2014 XTC Advanced 27.5 anyone got theirs?

    Ordered one a few weeks ago and patiently waiting. Just curious if any are shipping yet. If so what model and size?

    I ordered the 0 team model. Haven’t seen much as far as reviews go or that they have shipped any yet. Like I said, just patiently waiting but wouldn’t mind reading what others have seen so far.

    Not many reviews of the 0, apparently the bike floats away like a balloon before they get a chance

    Just picked up my 27.5 1 this past Monday and it weighed in at 21.1 lbs without pedals. I've been riding a 2009 XTC 1 for about three and a half years and the new bike feels so different its much much lighter and stiffer, it feels so agile and accelerates unlike any bike I have ridden its awesome.

    I have been on an advanced 27.5 2 for about 6 weeks now. It weighed 23lbs no pedals in medium. Been real happy with bike. Doesn't beat me up, climb great, and accelerates quickly.

    I know what you mean. I have had pedals and a 28T chain ring for a month now.

    What is a "Skin" for the pedals?

    I meant for the crank :-)

    Frameskin for XX1 Cranks - Frameskin

    Frameskin for 2014 XTC Advanced 27.5 - Frameskin

    I figure I'll wait and see how she feels before I do additional chain rings, I'm used to a triple Trance to this so different gearing, but also way heavier and w/rear suspension
