    YT - Does size matter?

    Capra 29er? Jeffsy 27.5+? Or something else?

    According to the NZ YT rep "...the Jeffsy was designed solely as a 29er Trail bike without the option for a 27.5+ option. This was done as in testing the plus sized Jeffsy simply did not give the ride quality and experience that YT desire from all of their bikes, and is the reason the stays are also not designed to fit a plus sized tyre in the back."

    So I think the Capra 29er is more likely.

    They changed the pivot location. Does it mean moar rearward axle path?

    Bummer. Capra 29er would've been a blast.

    At a first glance the suspension layout looks similar to me. I'm not expecting any significant changes from the 29er model. Typically manufacturers keep the kinematics similar between different wheel size on the same model. Anyway, this is just a guessing, I didn't confirm this yet.

    I suspect low angle attack of larger wheel size plays nicer with more vertical axle path.
    amiright?
