    YT Carbon

    Does anyone have any opinions on the carbon that YT uses in it's builds? Is it comparable to Ibis' carbon choice? Is it closer to the lower quality Santa Cruz carbon choice?

    I previously owned a specialized stumpjumper made from their 7M carbon, it frame flex similar to an uncooked noodle.
    I have a capra 27 cf size L that's 32lbs with pedals, but I'm pretty sure the build kit is what makes it heavy (the top-end bike is reportedly under 30lbs size L), and it's ultra-stiff. I haven't seen any reports of broken or cracked frames yet, and I haven't had mine long enough to attest that it's durable. But these bikes are made with extra carbon on the top tubes to support the use of a dual-crown fork. The frames mean business.
    Shorter seat tubes, taller droppers.
    Shorter chainstays, taller stacks.
    Shorter stems, taller BB's.
