    XTC Advanced 27.5 weight?

    Anyone weighed one? Giant are a PITA about not publishing stock weights - can't they afford a scale?

    I believe the top model (XX1) comes in right around 19.6lbs for a medium with no pedals, IIRC.

    I have an advanced 2 in medium. Without pedals it weighed 23 even at the shop with crossmark tires instead of the Ralph's. By the way,love the bike. It is fast and climbs great.

    Just weighed by buddies 2014 XTC Advanced SL 1 (size small) after we converted it to tubeless with the stock Racing Ralphs. With XTR race pedals, it weighed exactly 21 lbs.

    My medium is also built to 21lbs exactly. With crests, sid, and next sl's, carbon bars and post.
    It's what I call: good enough.

    I am changing to s-works carbon bars, easton ec70 post, and slr xp saddle. I plan to also swap the carbon wheels for my crossmax SLR wheels ( hair heavier than the stock carbons)

    The only other thing I am considering is swapping the drive train (I have an X0 crank, XX front shifter and front derraileur, and X9 rear shifter and derraileur. I need to rebuild my other bike to sell. My parts are slightly used but could get more for my other bike with a new drivetrain
