Does anyone have a good source for shock spacers and hardware for the Capra? I have an air shock I’d like to try without having to remove the spacers from my coil shock.

I was going to suggest Fluid Function in Squamish. They sorted out my Ultimate Coil hardware issues. They might be able to ship it to you.

Thanks I will check them out.

Hello guys!

Just recieved my new Capra CF frame after warranty issue and noticed that rear dropouts made of pure carbon, without any steel inserts. Dt swiss RWS axle is supplied with frame, but it has profile with teeth on its lever side. So sharp teeth interact with unprotected carbon fiber of frame.

So i want to ask, is it safe to use it like this? Or i should put washer between axle and dropout? maybe YT forgot to put it...

I'd put a washer there until YT gets back to you

@Remmru It'll be fine. The silver teeth portion of the skewer acts like a washer (green arrow). When it contacts the frame it "grabs" and doesn't rotate with the axle when you tighten it. I've removed and reinstalled my rear wheel A LOT (flats, rebuilds, stuffing into trunk of car, switching wheels) and my dropout is fine. My dropout is raw carbon like yours.

Is the base Capra the best specc'd bike under 3k? Zeb, rockshox deluxe, code r brakes...other brands have yari's or non-piggyback shocks and usually worse brakes as well it seems, unless I'm missing some?

It's why I ended up with one in 2018. I think for the years after that the base al didn't seem like as good of a deal.

Yea despite it going up $300 it still seems like the best with the zeb and code upgrades compared with any other brands at that price point. Probably going to wait though as it seems they'll probably update the geo next year but idk

It's still a good bike. But unless I was desperate for a new bike, I would also hold off. The redesign has to be around the corner.

But I would also consider the Commencal Meta TR Race. It's more expensive but it looks pretty rad.

Anyone who bought a capra blaze, did you find a YT keychain in your box? I got a jeffsy blaze and see picture for what I am talking about. I also got a yt dirt love and it didn't come with it.
