Hi everyone! i have yt capra 2016. L size,aluminium version (al comp 1). really good bike for everything. But wanted to put coil shock on it because need more progression for jumps .
It has 222*66 shock size. But most of the shocks comes in 222*70 size and trunion version. So how i could solve this problem with shock?
Installing a coil shock will make it LESS progressive!

222x70 isn’t trunion, it’s 1 of the old standart sizes - it’s perfect for the Capra 2015-2017.

"Will" it? Has nothing to do with your frame.

Unlikely it'll clear your fork and even if it did you'll need a 40+mm internal rim width to keep it from folding over on itself completely in corners.

(My hardtail is 29+ for reference and I run a 46mm internal rim on 3.0 Minions. If you now own this tire and don't want it anymore, DM me because I'd be interested in buying it.)

Same here. Don't get hung up on the "need all the adjustment knobs" idea. This one is plenty good!

Hey, I’ve got a 2020/2021 Capra pro race on 27.5’s, I was thinking about getting a fox 38 and putting a 29er up front. Anyone know if this would work. It’s an xl frame

It’ll definitely work, just depends on if you like how it changes your geo. I’d do the math and figure out the effect it’ll have on head and seat tube angles, reach, stack, and bb height.
The combo of a longer axle to crown height of a 38 + a 29” wheel is going to make a pretty drastic change to all those numbers.

Hey guys I have a question and can't seem to find any answers on the Google. I have a 17' Capra CF Pro Race, I'd like to switch the aluminum rear triangle to carbon. Has anyone heard of this or know if it's even possible?

CHEERS!

Hi guys I am wondering if anyone knows for sure the rear hub sizing for the YT Capra carbon frames from the years 2014-2017. I am using the YT capra Pro 2016. I have had trouble finding a official source for the sizing online I found one site which state the wheels being 142x12 rear hub however this was simply a measurement of what the wheels listed were available in. I don't currently have the bike on hand so can't measure it first hand so thought this would be the best place to go.

142 non boost for at least 14 & 15. Not sure after that. But I think all the first gen models were non boost.

I agree with the guy above, according to this review, it's 142mm.

Hi , i had the 2017 Alu version which had a carbon rear triangle.Or carbon upper triangle and alu chainstays....i am not sure. Maybe you should talk with customer support. I did not know that the Carbon version had an alu triangle.Maybe there was a reason for that....better be sure.
