PANIC.......calling all YT Capra 29 owners - WHICH SIZE?

Right...I am on the verge of pressing the button on a CAPRA 29, but fretting about size.

I am 5 foot 7 (170cms) and 140 lbs. I ride a medium COTIC even though COTIC recommend a small.
I have of course looked at reach specs and TT virtual etc and read plenty of chat about the weirdness of YT sizing on the Tuesday and Capra. I will be riding Alps extreme stuff and bike parks here.

What size should I be going for in the latest Capra 29? All help welcome. If you can state your height and frame size I would be really really grateful. Many thanks.

not a Capra owner, but perhaps the larger of two sizes you are stuck between, will be the best in terms of stability and pedal-ability.

I'm 182cm and ride a Large 27.5. This is the 2018 model with 460mm reach. Fits me fine, but if I was buying a 2020 bike I would go for XL, which for 2020 has 475mm reach (27.5 version).

You could probably ride a Medium or Large. If you want a sled go large, but if you want something a bit easier to hop and pop then go medium. Just be careful of seat tube length, if you have shorter legs and longer torso you may struggle on a large.

I'm a 5'4 dude and recieved my 2020 Capra 29 size medium a few weeks back. Been on 6ish Enduro style rides now and loving it. Was concerned when purchasing that it'd be too large but it's not. I'd say go with the large for yourself...

I have a large Capra 29 and it feels perfect for me but I'm 6ft. I've always liked my bikes slightly small so if I was a bit shorter I'd definitely have a medium. Suppose it's up to personal preference really.
