    Hoping for a Jeffsy make-over; certainly most likely considering the Capra and Tues were both re-done this year. My wish list:
    1. Shorter seat tube (this is almost a given considering what YT did with both Capra and Tues) 400 mm on a size M.
    2. Threaded BB... yeah yeah, they weigh more and have to be "bonded" into the carbon but all the other hi-end bikes have them so get with the program YT!
    3. 65-65.5 deg HTA and 77-77.5 deg STA with 450 mm reach on size Med. Keep travel at 140 F/R or maybe use a 150mm fork.
    4. Less fork offset - 44mm for 29'rs. This one is puzzling because everyone is now leaning towards this and YT WAS pioneering that but went with the longer 51mm rakes this year... I'm guessing that was purely a supply/cost issue.
    5. Sram 12sp drivetrains... no reason NOT to go there now that they have NX level price point.
    6. DIFFERENT LENGTH CRANKS FOR DIFFERENT SIZE FRAMES!!! WHEN are the bike manufacturers going to do this??? They already do this with the chainstay lengths so...
    Small = 165, med = 170, large - 175, xl = 180mm cranks
    7. Uhm... build more bikes??? They sold out in, like, a week for many of the Capra sizes... FOR. THE. YEAR!
    8. Use a better topcoat system for chip/scratch resistance... as a coatings/composites expert and rep for Evonik (German Co).. they can do a HELLUVA lot better in that dept. with LOCAL technology. NO EXCUSE for that one tho it will add some cost.

    Have FUN!

    Yes, it's safe to assume a new Jeffsy. No changes to Capra and we've already seen the 2019 Tues.

    Yeah I'm betting on a Jeffsy...

    Changes that need to be made:
    -ISCG tabs for a bashguard
    -Shorter seat tubes, so all the threads on sizing can stop

    what do i REALLY want them to make though?!

    -ROWDY 120mm 29er. What a market they are missing out on. Such a big portion of the market really doesn't require 140mm on the daily.

    I agree with most of these except 12speed. Who really needs 12 speed, with 9-46 e13 casette
    More you beef it up, more it will handle like a cow....

    I'm with you here... YT has to keep the costs down somewhere, and the E13 cassette has been great for me. I could care less about 12 speed... of course I wouldn't be mad if I had it. I just don't see it as a "must upgrade".

    ^^ 12 speeds isn't a big deal to me either but Sram shifter and rear ders sure as HELL are; YT has it backwards... spec'ing Sram brakes and Shimano shifters/ders!!! SMH

    Since most everyone here is posting what they wish, not what they honestly think will happen, here's mine:

    don't make any changes at all until they figure out how to make enough bikes to keep up with demand. The only way to get a 2018 was to pre-order it 6 months before delivery, and now they're sold out for ever...

    I hope YT doesn't follow the industry trend of a refresh just to have a refresh. They just updated the color scheme and components on the Jeffsy, so why would they come out with a brand new bike?

    Because the geo is considered dated, especially compared to their own enduro bike. The 2019 Jeffsy large will have the same reach as the 2018 X-large (and the 2018 Capra large). I predict they'll also slacken the head angle 1/2 a degree at least. I think the 2018 bikes showed up on the website and in press releases in Feb or March so expect the same in 2019

    Itís definitely gonna be some small updates like that. I generally ride a medium bike, but am on a large Jeffsy for the reach. Since everything fits me so well I wonder if Iíll be wanting the next gen... we shall see!

    Typically January I believe. Just wait and get ready to pounce when they're announced.

    I keep hearing this, but the GEO of the Jeffsey is almost identical to the new Stumpjumper which is getting accolades left and right. The biggest difference is the seattube length which I agree is a bit long on the Jeffsey.

    ^Exactly. I just talked my friend into getting a large Jeffsey but we're worried he won't be able to fit on the 6" dropper. We'll find out this evening when we build it. He used to ride mediums but after trying some bikes agreed that the reach of the large feels better. The next Jeffsey will have reach and seat tube numbers in line with the current Capra.

    I talked to JM (YT Canada support guy) while trying to get a refund for my Capra that it turns out they didn't have for me after I already paid, he said they expect a price hike next year. Hopefullu they're spending more on getting bikes built and shipped into the US/Canada, to speed up the number of bikes actually being sent to customers. Other than that, I would expect a jeffsy redesign. Probably nothing too crazy, still same travel, probably a little slacker, maybe steeper seat tube, definitely shorter deat tube, and hopefully rockshox pike across the lineup. Stiffer than the fox 34, which mtbr said was the only thing holding the jeffsy back from being the hands-down winner of trail bike of the year. And I have no reason to believe such a bike will be made, but wouldn't it be nice if YT made an all-mountain hardtail as well? something to rival Chromag and Orange's slack, long hardtails.

    It seems like those only exist on the internet. I work at a fairly busy bike shop in a popular riding destination in the CO Rockies and never see "AM hardtails". I think that catagory must be really localized to certain regions. Or maybe because bikes are more expensive in Canada more people up there can't afford rear suspension?

    Funnily enough, the reason I said that was because I just last week bought a Chromag Stylus and thought that it was such a great bike, it's a mystery why more bike brands aren't making hardtails like it. I'd love to see a carbon fiber AM hardtail, since most are steel and some are aluminum. Imagine the versatility!

    Why do you keep repeating this? The jeffsy has ISCG mounts. I'm running a Oneup ISCG bashguide on mine and the holes are clearly visible in the images on their site.

    My YT Jeffsy CF 2018 doesn't have ISCG mounts. I even went to double check my bike after I saw your post. Thought maybe I was blind as a bat and over looked that when I mounted my e-type chain guide. :-)

    Cause you got a 27 bunniboi. If the 29 had them I would stop repeating it. So yeah... it would be sweet if the 29ers had them.

    Garans it's just the updated Jeffsy. God I hate typing that name. Maybe they'll change it.

    Jeffsy w/ a Fox 36 fork? So much fork for their trail oriented bike. Difficult to see anything but my bet is for a different type of bike (Ņ140-150mm HT?)

    Same here:
    Looking for a great Enduro Hardtail with a big long and slack geometry.
    There are a few that I have my eye on right now like the Bird Zero.

    Still, if YT makes a hardtail with PF BB and IS Headset than I'm out.

    Nothing weird about a 36 set at 140 or 150 on a mid travel bike. That photo of a chainstay doesn't look like a hardtail to me.

    Yup. Noticed it on the photos. But I don't know where to put another double suspension bike on the YT range: Jeffsy <-> Capra <-> Tues.

    Maybe an XC but... I see too much fork for such squishy and weight weenie class. A HT is the logical step (IMHO, could be horribly wrong).

    There is a gaping hole in one of the most popular segments of the market... the rowdy short travel 29ers. I would be all over a YT with a 110-120 rear and a 130 fork. I would also be very interested in a hardtail.

    Those pics have got to be the new Jeffsy though

    Till now with 3 frames and 2 wheel sizes they have a good spread on riding attitude. Maybe is the new Jeffsy but... really I don't feel they needed to rewamp it.

    Spez stumpy has almost the same geometry and guys get a hardon with that bike (never liked Spez... they make proprietary things that should be a standard).

    You don't think it's weird that the Jeffsey is a full size shorter than the Capra and has a slacker seat tube? How about that it's the only bike in its class that doesn't have a normal water bottle mount during an age when everyone asks for it? Or the lack of ISCG on the 29er? Also, since the Capra, then Tues got revamped it just seems like the Jeffsey is due for it. Even if the geometry didn't need an update I'd expect a freshening and refining. This all seems obvious enough to me that I will be SHOCKED if I'm wrong and just in time (well, a month or so earlier than I expected), along comes a sneak peak of a new full suspension chainstay. I'd love to be wrong since surprises are interesting but I'm sure I'm right and I don't think they'll also release another new bike in '19.

    Totally but the new "Spez" has nothing proprietary any more. Geo is old and already dated but the bike is dialed. Thread BB, Standard Shock Lengths etc.

    Can anyone tell if that is a SRAM chain? Would love it if they went Eagle or new XTR.

    I think YT is going with Eagle for 2019 and ditching the 11-speed e13 set up. Here's a photo of a 27 AL model with the NX Eagle. Also has Guide T brakes. Looks like nice color combinations for 2019.

    It's hard to tell, but if you look in the top-right corner it looks like the pins are solid. That means... GX Eagle, NX Eagle, XT, or a KMC chain (in which case who knows)

    Edit: Looks like kwapik removed the guesswork haha

    Hopefully they will have the website updated in January for the new models. If I remember correctly that is what they did last year, the bikes may not be available but the site reflected the new models. We shall see

    I was lucky enough to get a jeffsy run that came with XO1 eagle last year. Hopefully they go back to that model next year.

    You are correct. They will present the 2019 models in late January.

    Only new colors for Capra and Tues as expected. I am still exited to see the new Jeffsy which will probably be released in February. (like the new Capra last year)

    Colors are great and you have a choice of colors on the base models this year. A lot of different and interesting component combinations for 2019. For example, I'm impressed the AL comp comes equipped with the Fox X2.

    The Fox forks on the 29er are listed at 44mm offset! wonder if it will create a noticeable change in feel

    There's a good chance it's an intentional leak anyway... drives excitement and speculation for the real announcement.

    Mainly... No Jeffsy.
    They released new Capra last year, Tues is up to date, and now they had this new full sus dirt jumper, that by the way is not on their website anymore.
    So they just refreshed this bikes, already!

    But no Jeffsy, which was highly anticipated. And if you think about it, trail/AM category is more popular than dirt jumper or downhill.

    Yes, new colors are nice, and that 44 mm offset fork on Capra.
    But personally, I am not a fan of Eagle, I prefer e13 trs cassette.

    So, that's why i'm bit disappointed by this "big release"

    Now, this new Jeffsy leaked video wasn't here while I sent my original post.

    I hear you. But just like last year, YT announced their bikes in January and waited until February to unveil the new Capra. Looks like this year they may announce the new Jeffsy earlier than February.

    Yt's component choices are intriguing. Some models have Eagle while others still have the e*13 cassette. Various suspension options and different dropper posts. And it is interesting that YT went with reduced fork offsets this year. Also, It's good to see 30mm id DT Swiss wheels this year.

    I really like the color combinations and also like that you have color choices this year. I myself like the AL Comp model with the Fox 36 pe and X2. It's a hell of a deal.

    I can't wait to see what the geometry is on the new Jeffsy.

    Someone overlayed the current generation Jeffsy on the new model. Definitely looks longer, steeper seat tube, lower standover. Can't tell on the HTA.

    I think it's probably a very good bicycle and a certain improvement over gen 1, but I don't find that ST-TT junction attractive. You short legged guys who utter the phrase "stand over clearance" are making my bikes heavier and uglier. Same as the guys insisting on water bottle space that mandates a bent down tube. I realize this is a fight I can not win and don't bother fighting but lets agree that there's at least a more attractive way to go about it. Look at the Capra.

    Also, I'd rather see a marketing budget spent sponsoring racers and events instead of on The Continental.

    Okay, now shut up and take my money!

    Now, that Yt-Walken video is back on youtube (it was officially sent by YT in a email), I'm getting more excited.
    By the way, clever YT:

    It looks like Jeffsy will be up to current standards. Can't wait to see details.

    By the way, none of the Jeffsy links on YT website work anymore. It's gotta be really close to release date

    It appears that the Aluminum frame is the same and there is no AL Comp.

    So the aluminum model is the same as the previous frame Jeffsy? Thats kind of lame. They make all these new geometry changes but only do it for the carbon models. Unless there is an error on YT's site that is listing the wrong geo chart for the AL Base model.

    Understand that. For me, the riding season doesn't start until June anyway. As long as I have the bike by then, or shortly after, I'm good.

    Now I just need to sell my Bronson, which I <3 big time.

    pricing has gone up and a lot of the components seem to have gone down... at least on the 27.5 carbon models.

    The comp seems to be a best buy but i feel like for the price of the pro i would rather buy a 19 base CF model stumpy and have a bit lower spec but LBS support :/

    Is the CF Pro Race the exact same build-out as last year?

    For that big of a price jump, I was expecting a full SRAM drivetrain.

    Yeah whats up with the Alum situation? I checked the German site and it seemed to be the same. Also in the Alum pics, the seat tube angle doesn't look nearly as steep as the CF so maybe they aren't updating the AL.

    this is/would be pretty lame given that carbon needs new pricy molds and alu is faster to reconfigurate, meh

    Nope, they did not update the AL model and have no plans to according to YT headquarters. That and the only one AL model is very surprising.

    They probably have too many unsold aluminiumframes lying around. I am sure it will be updated next MY, or as soon as the have sold enough of the old ones.

    Wow.... I was just about settled on Specialized Stumpjumper Comp Carbon... and now the Jeffsy CF Pro comes along. 2x the build for 10% less money (in euros anyway). Very tempting.... longer reach, also full carbon. There's not a lot of reasons not to choose the Jeffsy besides lack of LBS support. Decisions... decisions....

    That reach man. As a taller dude, that new Stumpy (not the evo one) is a joke. 73.7 STA and 470 reach in XL?? That was conservative like 5 yrs ago. I'm sure its a fine bike for some but I feel like people are just hyping it because its the next stumpy. That geo is flawed plain and simple. You are right to check out the Jeffsy...maybe take a look at the Carbon Ferrazi La Sal reviews. That looks like a sick bike and for 3500$ you get a Lyric and a Super Deluxe RC3. Even better value than the YT...tho its a bit bigger of a bike (150mm travel) but whatever...just run a little xtra psi or compression.

    Seems like a big miss by YT IMO. Offering a progressive geo, yet still firmly in the "trail" category bike at $2300 would be pretty popular I'd think. Although I shouldn't complain since I'm not in the market for a bike at the moment anyways.

    Good question! I don't plan on running wide tires actually, but having good clearance is nice to keep the frame from damage or mud from clogging up.

    Yes, I'm thinking YT caused confusion (or maybe hype) by releasing partial info. The Jeffsy is tops on my FS list for the trails in my area.

    Fezzari doesnít sell in Europe so that solves that problem! In this price range only Canyon can compete and their similar trail offering - the Spectral - is 27.5 only. I actually pulled the trigger yesterday and bought a Jeffsy CF Pro 29 yesterday in size XL. Available from Feb 6th. So itís a couple weeks wait. Super excited though!

    Iíve checked them out but there isnít much info about them. A little to obscure. At least with YT thereís a community online which is nice given the fact that I wonít have LBS support (without paying).
