Yet to be weighed, my new XTC Advanced SL is just how I like it: streamlined, minimalised, internalised, and glamourised. Details like internal seat post clamp and internal cable routing make for a sleek ride with substance. Wacking on the new XTR also turns it up a level. Shimano have refined an already refined groupo yet again. Stealth and smooth. Ok, enough tech talk. Time to ride!
