YT Launch New Cheaper Capra Core 1 & Upgrades Core 2 Model
It's amazing how the cost of stuff has gone up so much that 2.5k now seems a bargain for an alloy low end build...only as far back as 2015/16 you could get a top of the line carbon Capra with Kashima everything, X2 shock, XX1 11 speed, Renthal bars and carbon rims for 3.5k that aside from a slightly steeper head angle and slacker seat tube will still out perform this bike most likely. The way prices have gone up it makes more sense to but a top spec bike from a couple years ago used than a current gen low end bike...the geometry has barely changed and the shock technology is basically the same and still crap compared to aftermarket tuned options. And those saying a Yeti is 15k are getting ripped off...I built a higher spec Yeti than the top end models off the shelf for 8-9k and that is with a PUSH 11.6, FAST SC4 Damper, fancy wheels etc...anyone that goes into a shop and pays full rrp for a complete build is a mug..many have argued the opposite but I guarantee if you shop around and look for deals you can build up a better bike for less... but this isn't to take away from YT at least in comparison to other bikes on the market right now they have put effort into making a quality bike for 'cheap' and that green one looks great too.
