Looking for any rider experience going from a 2017 Capra Pro Race 27.5 to the new Specialized Enduro Expert.
My Capra is starting to feel a little old and I am looking for something new and have my eyes on the Enduro, but that price vs the Capra is hard to swallow

Honestly Get the Capra Blaze its the best value for an enduro bike.

Long since sold out, I suspect that’s the case everywhere. It was a limited run of bikes YT did.

Didn't happen. So why wait. The current one is brilliant. Why wait for something that might not come out.

Hi guys. Where can I find a mech hanger screw for a 2020 YT Capra? They don't have on the website for 2018+ models

You can find one in my toolbox. Third drawer from the bottom, on the left.

Emailed YT to see if they could tell me whether the Capra Elite would come back in stock. This was the reply:

“Thanks for reaching out to YT!

We do not have a waiting list or a confirmed eta for new CAPRA models at this time.

We encourage you stay tuned to our website for updates as well as sign up for our newsletter and/or follow us on social media (Facebook, Instagram).

We are looking forward to getting you on a YT soon!”


I’m not hopeful I’ll be riding a Capra this season. And I don’t want to sink more cash into upgrading/servicing my Mk1 Jeffsy. The suspension needs a full service, and the bearings need replacing, but I’d rather save the cash for a new bike.

Perhaps I need to look into whatever the LBS can get a hold of for me...or look at Canyon, as they have a Strive in stock in my size.

I even found a Pivot Firebird Pro X01 steeply discounted at a local shop, but unfortunately they only have a large, when I need a small or medium.

I asked this in the general YT thread as well but I am wondering if anyone here happened to save the exploded diagrams that do not appear to be on the new YT site? I am particularly looking for the one for the Tues but would like to have all of them if possible.

EDIT: Found them thanks to someone on here. Apparently I suck at navigating websites.

I have a 2019 Capra AL Comp. Is it possible to swap the ZS56, lower headset race for a External Cup (EC)? If so, what size lower cup/headset race should I order? I simply want to add a little more lift to my front end without changing my fork travel, and I'm in need of a new headset anyway.

I wouldn't hold your breath on it appearing in stock anytime soon, personally I'd order the Canyon if you really want a bike right now, or relatively soon (keep in mind Canyon sizes are usually 1 up from normal, ie: medium normal is small Canyon, but I assume you've used their sizing chart).

Yeah, the one I saw is a Strive in size S.

I think I’ll wait though. Really stoked on a Capra if I’m completely honest with myself.
