    2018 Jeffsy 29 Carbon Frame questions

    I am looking into purchasing a a jeffsy CF pro in the very near future. I am curious about owners impression or comparisons of the quality of carbon? How stiff are these frames?

    This will be my first carbon frame, how does a yt carbon stand up to impacts in a crash. I am aware of the crash replacement warranty. First carbon jitters........

    Compared to say the quality of a SC hightower. As that is my other choice but the YT build and price makes this very hard to pass on. just doing my homework since i cant put my hands on one as of yet.

    Thanks in advance.
    I don't always listen to slayer, but when I do so do the neighbors.

    I have my Jeffsy 27 CF Pro now for around 16 months and really like it.
    My whole XL bike weights 13,5 kg incl. pedals, frame protection, Sigma pc, water bottle, saddle bag and tubeless.
    With new wheels and tires I could make at least 1kg lighter.

    About the frame.
    I have zero issues, no creaking bb or rear suspension.
    No paint chipping.
    I am pretty impressed with the quality so far.
    But I do take really good care of my Jeffsy.
    No cleaning with water on bearings.

    And the stiffness....hmmm.
    I can't really say how stiff it is.
    I can't feel any frame flex.
    It feels very comfortable to ride and is a beast down the Trails.
    But not as good as my Capra.

    Hope that helps you.
    Cheers!

    Well I pulled the trigger on a Jeffsy cf and it was delivered last week. everything seems to be great so far. Pretty stiff by my standards at least. I did get my first Micro chip on the brace between the seat stays. I rock got stuck in the tire tread and smacked the brace, I heard it smack at low speed. It doesn't appear to be an issue. the tire clearance is pretty tight with the e thirteen 2.35 tires . Beside that, I love it took it down a small flow jump line within a couple miles, super technical rocky sections and long climbs and it handles everything just fine.

    Nice! Do you have the black one?
    The e13 tires are pretty wide compared to other tires.

    Cheers!
