When do people think they will come out? Any news on whether the AL version will get updated geo?

I know they probably aren't doing a full refresh, but do they do new colors every year?

YT seems pretty awesome and im anxious for news to see if I want to buy one lol :).

I’m thinking they are waiting till they sell off all the existing AL bikes before they release the new ones. The new AL should be the same new geo of the new 2019 carbon Jeffsy. I’m also waiting to see how the new AL bike will be speced

Originally I wanted to order a 2019 AL 29. Later I learned about the geo difference between the AL and the CF models and was a little disappointed. I had a chance to go to the Rolling Circus in massanutten bike park. I rode YT demos all day. Jeffsy, Capra, Tues, in 27 and 29 configurations in sizes L and XL. I basically lived at their tent. I was bummed because I had ordered a 29 AL in L. And in the CF models I felt better on a XL, they didn't have any ALs for testing. Long story short I upgraded to the CF comp model, and have a XL on the way. But when I was ordering my 29 AL I couldn't get the black magic color I wanted and was told they would be recieving anymore. It was done and sold out for good. So pick another color or model. With that said it seems we are close to seeing what the new AL has in store for us.

If it comes with eagle GX and a 36mm stanchion fork option I'd look really hard at it over a Capra If it only comes with a Pike or Fox 34 I'm out.
I wouldn't hold your breath, they arn't going to put a GX on the new AL Jeffsy, it will likely get a SX eagle. Also, lots of people thing the Jeffsy is too comparible to the capra now. It's at the end of the spectrum for what you would consider to be a trail bike, and right before enduro. Go al capra if you want enduro, it's a awesome bike.

Your Paying 2400 for a fox 34 Rhythm (dont confuse the rhythem with the elite) and a base fox dps rear. For $200 more you get a capra with Lyric and RockShox SuperDeluxe R.

So i hope for 2020 they do a comp edition for a few hundred more and better shocks.

I got to ride the Jeffsy at Thunder Mountain and wow what an amazing bike. Got two good pieces of information. 1. YT is opening East coat office in North Carolina. 2. The 2020 AL will be updated with new GEO and this part he would not confirm but was pretty sure that there will be more than one AL version.

Crossing my fingers the 2020 Jeffsy Pro Race will ditch Shimano/E13 drivetrain for SRAM Eagle and throw in a 170 min dropper.
Hopefully it's XTR9100/XT8100 mix on drivetrain and brakes. Better than Eagle and waaaay better than SRAM brakes. I put XT8020 brakes on my 2019 Pro Race and will swap drivetrain to XT8100 when the XTR9000/e13 wears out.

Do you think the new aluminum model will just have updated geo to match the current carbon model? Or will it be the next step and have even more trendy geo (longer/slacker/steeper STA)? Is YT willing to make the bike slacker than the carbon version like Ibis did?
