Ok, I know people constantly ask for sizing help for the YT Capra. The problem for me is I can't find a forum that is similar to my situation. I'm about 5'8 ( Still growing, I'm 15 ) and don't want to screw up with the size. I'm leaning toward a large so I can keep the bike in the future but am worried about the seat being too high. I would mainly use it for downhill, meaning I need to get behind the seat. Every forum I go onto people are responding, "It is based on your preference." Problem is, I don't have a preference. I need what fits me. Leg proportions are normal for my height. By the way looking to get the 27 base model. Thanks in advance.


TLDR : YT Capra, M or Large for 5'8

You are at the bottom end of a large and "still growing". Get a Large.

I agree with DJR get the large. The seat tube is pretty short for a large, and with modern geometry you don't need to get as far back on downhills

I'm 5'8 and own a large Jeffsy29, which is slightly longer than a large capra. I'd definitely say go for the large

6ft and like to haul, go for XL. Playful and stylish, go for L.
