    YT Capra AL Frame spec info

    Hey y'all,

    Does anyone know where to find info on frame wall thickness for a 2018 YT Capra AL frame? I can't find anything useful on YT's site or any forums.

    I ask because while I was washing my bike today, I noticed a small crack/deep scratch along the underside of the down tube near the crankset. I tried applying pressure to the cracked area to see if it was noticeably weaker/giving but it still seems fairly solid and I haven't notice any change in the feel of the bike. Seems obvious that it was an external blow, not an internal crack due to the nearby scratches. See pictures BELOW.

    Short of buying a new frame, is there anything that can be done in the meantime to partially fix this issue? Temporary frame weld? Some kind of patching?

    Open to any advice/wisdom regarding cracked aluminum frames in general.
