    Go for the Specialized, but if you find a 2014 Spec Camber do not buy it because it has a junky Suntour fork that will let you down. For the price, a bike like that should definitely have a RockShox fork.

    The '14 Spearfish is awesome. Get the 13s cheap I guess, because people will be dumping them.

    You have 2 different type of bikes there.

    The Spearfish is designed to be an endurance/long distance type of bike.

    The Camber is a 110mm travel trail bike. Designed for general trail riding.

    The Camber corners much better than the Spearfish due to the geometry. Both ride great. But for general trail riding, I'd go with the Camber.
