I didn't think of it like that. I think at 6'0" and 77kg I'm probably Mr Average in terms of mountain biker size.

I’ve got a 2018 YT Capra CF with a missing headset crown race. Anyone have any luck finding a replacement? If not what’s my best course of action?

Has anybody got a 2018/19 cf pro red, XL they want to sell or swap for the same but in large?

Why are you wanting to switch? How tall are you?

Im 5'11.5"
Some of the time i feel its too short. A lot of the time it feels perfect and no issues. But quite often as well i feel a longer bike would be mkre stable and possibly could be pushed harder and actually be more responsive. I feel this one maybe understeers. Longer reach enabkes a different riding technique that i think I'll prefer. Only ridden a longer reqched bike once, but thought it cornered better than anything ive ridden.

27.5 capra...... im presuming the bottom bracket height of the pro race when suspension fully compressed will be lower than that of the cf pro, because the shock of the cf pro doesnt ever reach full travel of shaft length.
Anybody know exactly how much lower it would be?
Cheers.

Just brought a 2018 pro race 29 and was wondering if someone could tell me how the geometry/ travel adjust works?

Bolt at the front of the holes, steep geo.
Bolt at the back of the holes, slack geo.

So nothing to do with Travel adjustment?

There is no travel adjustment unless you change shock. Some bikes have 60mm stroke for (I think) 160mm travel. Some have 65mm stroke for 170mm travel.

The flip chips change angles and BB height only.

Hello guys. could anybody tell me if i can put a 250x75 shock on my 2019 capra cf (from factory it comes equiped with a 250x70 shock). I know the new 2020 capras use a 250x75 shock and as far as i know yt hasnt changed anything to the frame compared to last year.

I think the Capra has a 230*60 or 230*65 shock?

Hey guys, so I'm looking to join the YT family! I was recently on a 15 specialized Enduro medium frame. I'm 5' 8 " 165 lbs. I can't decide if I should order a medium or large frame in the Capra cf 27.5! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
