Preview: YT Capra CF Comp 1 2015

So I got a new bike. After nearly 5 years on my Canfield Brothers ONE, it was due time for a change. (The Canfield has done a damn good job btw) So say hallo to the 2015 YT Capra CF Comp 1, check out the specs HERE.

And here she is. 160mm front, 165mm rear, 650b wheels, head angle at a slack 65,2 °, and a seattube angle at 75 °. A low toptube and low bottom bracket. Just the way I like it.

Rockshox Pike up front, Monarch Plus in the rear, SRAM X1 drivetrain, E13 TRS+ wheels.

13.07 kg or 28.75 Lbs. I changed the following stuff on it allready; Bar, stem, both tires, grips and seat. Pushing it below 13kg will be relatively easy.

Initial impressions are as follows (remember this is a preview);

The good:

-Climbs amazingly
-Pike is friggin amazing in its beginng-to-mid stroke.
-Low toptube and low bottom bracket
-Surprisingly agile
-Fun to ride
-Bike feels stiff
-Quality and finish
-E13 wheels where actually easy to convert to tubeless *falls of chair*

The bad:
-Pike handles big hits poorly
-You sit on the bike, not in the bike
-Mornarch Plus is unimpressive

I will be doing a full review after some more testing. I need waaay more testing! Stay tuned.

Shiny new toy a box, and in that box is a new bike. I just got it, and it hasn't even been out in the woods yet. If the bike doesn't fit, its going back to the shop. 

I blanked out the bike in paint, as I am not yet sure if I'm am going to keep it. 

Speaking of paint, turns out its fun!

So, are these pictures random?

Meet Christobella. So we have been dating a bit, nothing serious, sure its only been 6 months now, but I'm meeting her parents next week tho'. We had passionate sex this night, where we came at the same time. Afterwards we cuddled, kissed, and talked about future plans, I don't know...perhaps it IS getting a bit serious.

I think we all agreed that this was the most fun session we've had in months.
