Does anyone know if the sram universal derailleur hanger fits the YT Capra Base.
Not unless they've changed it since 2018 (which I'm confidant they haven't, given the rest of the bike is the same, and it doesn't make sense to change that one part)

yeah I just don't see why a derailleur hanger is 30 dollars and almost 40 with shipping kinda ridiculous.

I don't think they should be expensive either. However, I do see aftermarket YT hangers are $30-$51

What? the supplier for YT here let you reserve bikes.. you know like when you go into a shop an preorder...
They've said new capra coming so i preorderd/reserved one.
This clearly means there will be less available to the general public upon release of stock.

Anyone here ever tried out and compared a shimano XT rear derailleur and a SLX rear derailleur. I'm about to upgrade and the SLX is in stock but the XT isn't, should I wait for the XT or just buy the SLX.

XT is only really the external clutch adjust. just buy SLX.

I went xtr to slx and I have to say performance wise there is nothing in it, I have noticed bigger differences changing between chains. I’m not sure if you plan on swapping shifters but the xt shifter IMO is worth it over the SLX as the SLX shifter paddles just don’t feel as solid. I’m not calling them bad or flimsy but it’s a subconscious thing.

I agree with this, you won't notice a large difference between derailleurs, but will notice replacing a slightly worn out chain or getting new shifters.

Basically I'd just get the SLX derailleur and ride, you probably won't notice a difference.

Pretty underwhelmed with the Capra announcement today. I just dropped 3k into upgrading suspension and wheels on my Mk1 Jeffsy when I couldn’t snag a Capra Elite. I’m glad I did.

I can’t see how a Core4 Capra with alloy wheels and YT dropper is the same price as a Capra Elite with Carbon Wheels and Fox Factory dropper. I guess supply chain issues are going to make bikes cost more.

Not to mention hopping almost all in to Fox. They are doing terrible this year trying to keep up with demand. Already looking at May 2022 delivery dates. F that noise!

...if you want basically an XT derailer, you can upgrade the pulleys on the SLX to XT/XTR sealed bearing pulleys. I did that to a SLX derailer when the bushing/pulleys started getting really noisy after a season. That and better chain make a big difference, I actually like my SLX derailer/drivetrain on my hardtail more than my GX drivetrain on my Capra.
