Has anyone had any luck finding a reach adjust headset for a Capra? It needs ZS44/ZS56 cups, but the top can also be an EC44. Works doesn’t carry those sizes. Not looking for an angle adjust, only a reach adjust. Thanks

Have you tried Superstar Components? Smile

By the time you discount the change with the ec56 lower and the ec44 upper (especially if you run your stem slammed) the difference will be 2-3mm at best.

Does anyone know what chainring goes on the capra? (Capra CF PRO 27.5 2019 to be exact, SRAM Descendant 7K DUB cranks)

Do i need a boost or a non-boost chainring, for some reason it is not written on the chainring i have, and can't find anything in the manual, and YT is not responding to emails

You need a boost which is the same as a 3mm offset chainring

Anyone with a Capra 29 have advice on coil spring weights for a rider in the 135-140lb range? The stock 375# has been seeming too soft lately. Thinking of jumping to a 425.

I'm getting my Yt Capra AL base soon I'm doing a lot of pedaling on flat ground and road to get to where I ride. Is there anything I can do to this bike to make it not feel sluggish.

Honestly I feel my Capra pedals and climbs great. I don't even use the lockout lever on the shock

That's good because the Base doesn't come with a Lockout, Thanks.

Pump up the suspension for road riding. Then let some off when at the trail. Stiffen compression if you have a dial for it. Just dont forget and firebomp downhill track all stiff. Pump tires too...

I've always loved yt marketing I hope they drop some more hype for hopefully a new Capra

I read a review of the capra cf 29 not long after it was released, it said the bike was better as a 'trail bike' with the flip chip in the higher bb/steeper head angle position. Personally ended up going for the Jeffsy instead as it looked more suited to more of my riding but still copes with the odd uplift day/enduro race. If I rode more dh/uplifts than trail riding I'd have gone for the Capra, tyres will make a big difference on the road as well
