Review: YT Capra 29 CF Pro Race
@ehvahn: interesting. What bike was that on? Ive had mine on 3 different bikes and my buddies have them on different brands too and all work great. I also recall a review on NSMB where the guy used it in a bunch of different bikes (even with worn drivetrains) and had great luck. In that review he mentioned chain length as being an issue in one bike but once shortened it was fine. https://nsmb.com/articles/ethirteen-trs-9-46t-cassette/

Review: YT Capra 29 CF Pro Race
@Rubberelli: Interesting. To be fair I’m using mine with Shimano XT derailleur and XT chain. I’ve had it on a Nomad, Norco Range and Capra and all have been flawless. I have no issues where my buddy with full GX Eagle is always tinkering with his setup. Chainline, age of derailleur and chain, and type of bike prob also play a factor (as they do with any drivetrain setup).

Review: YT Capra 29 CF Pro Race
@trialsracer: Lol. That’s why PB nominated the cassette for component of the year. Sorry you had issues. Maybe it was user error. All my E13 shit has been bomber (as have my friends stuff on their YT’s). Can’t please everyone I guess.

@Franzzz: Commencal uses E13 on a bunch of bikes too. Maybe all of it isn't "bullshits"?

Review: YT Capra 29 CF Pro Race
@tdoyle1995: Heard about the old cranks from a few years ago too. Happened to a buddy of mine but E13 took care of him and he did't have any issues since. I've snapped or broken SRAM and RF cranks, my Fox and Rockshox forks have had creaky crowns and my past DT and Mavic wheels have had issues. Doesn't mean everything they do is crap, nor would I ever say all their stuff sucks. My E13 wheels, tires and cassettes have been great the past few years and I know lots of others who have had the same experience. Their carbon wheels are some of the toughest I've tried. Way tougher than my old DT rims.

@VENOM2034: Some older E13 aluminum cranks (2015 and before) had puller cap issues. As far as I know E13 went to a new design in 2016/17. YT only uses their carbon cranks on the Pro model now. They use RF cranks below that (which aren't without issue either)

Review: YT Capra 29 CF Pro Race
@MikeyMT: LOL at Bontrager wheels. E13 carbon wheels are far superior and have lifetime warranty. I haven't read a bad review about them. Their tires review well too. As for SDG, a ton of OE's spec those saddles. If they don't work for you thats fine doesn't mean they're crap...Not sure where the Trek is $1500 better.

Review: YT Capra 29 CF Pro Race
@mulv1976: Only the CF Race models come with E13 carbon cranks, the rest come with RF cranks, so just don't get the Race version? I have a 2016 Jeffsy that has been flawless (only e13 on them was the wheels and they are still awesome).

Review: YT Capra 29 CF Pro Race
@MRwillP: Sounds like the issue is more with YT Canada and not the components on the bike. YT should not have sent the bike with the bad shock/cassette and their warranty process should have been much faster/better for sure.
