    Xtc advanced 27.5

    The XTC 27.5 is a great bike. Very fast and fun with great stiffness. Handling is very quick and snappy. I would definitely buy one if I could afford it.

    Here's a review I wrote for the XTC advanced 27.5.

    I would and Did buy one. This bike rocks.
    19.5 lbs as it sits. Bone stock except for egg beater pedals and a plastic bottle cage.

    Climbs so much better than my trance X 0 and descends better than I expected for a hard tail.

    What do you guys think about the internal seat post clamp?
    Is it durable, easy to lower and raise the seat?
    Thanks

    Durable... only time will tell.
    Easy to adjust... Yes, allen wrench is all you need.
    What do I think about it... I think it looks great. clean lines and simple function.

    I also have one. Switched from a 26 fs. The bike is fast and looks great. I would recommend for anyone considering a 27.5. The bike climbs and accelerates well. Not in the habit of adjusting the seat much, but have had no problems with the clamp. Easy enough to make adjustments.
