    got to ride s-works camber today ^^

    man was it nice!!

    only bug-bare was the internally routed dropper seat post... it was a little finicky i.e. kept slipping down.

    Tried the alloy stump jumper & it was way behind the s-works camber.

    Wanted to try a camber evo, but they didn't have one in their test line up.

    If I win lotto tonight I'll be getting the s-works for sure

    Primary bike is an 2013 XL Hammerhead Thumper 29'r Stan's Flow wheels, Fox 34mm x 140 forks, 2x10 XT, Magura MT2 brakes. I'm loving this bike the more I ride it.

    Previous bike is an 2013 XL Mach 429 carbon. I cracked the frame on a 2011 aluminum version and had to ride the SS (below) for months waiting for warranty. I rode the carbon version for about a month before I got the Thumper built up. I like the Thumper MUCH better so I haven't ridden the 429 much. I got a set of 34mm forks to try to bring the 429 up to the level of the Thumper but haven't reduced the travel and installed it yet. I will probably end up selling this bike if it doesn't work better with the fork installed. Currently built with Hope M4 brakes, 2x10 XT drive train, I9 wheels with Flow rims, WTB, Ergon, etc. Sweet bike but it doesn't work as well for me as the Thumper.

    Single speed is a 2012 XL Kona Unit. Added Stan's Flow wheels with solid axles because I was flexing the OEM wheels into the frame/forks when I stood up and mashed. Put a Reba fork (80mm travel) on when I couldn't take the jarring in my hands of high speed down hills. Magura MT2 brakes, WTB saddle, Ergon grips, etc to match other bikes. I got this bike so I could get a workout riding with my wife. It didn't work that way since I had to keep my speed up to match the gearing. I'm liking the SS better every time I ride it.

    5'10" and 230 lbs. Just got a 29er two weeks ago as a second bike; '13 GT Karakoram 3.0. I've put two rides in it so far and I'm very impressed with it. I've replaced the seat and pedals on it already since the stock GT stuff was uncomfortable, and it will be getting a new fork soon to replace the pogo XCM.

    Race face narrow wide single chain ring. Changed from a 9 speed chain up to a 10. Added a chain guide because I don't have a clutch derailleur.

    I'm 6'8", 300lbs.

    Bike: 2011 Trek Cobia

    Original Purchase:




    Current State (crappy Pic):



    Current state in the above photo:
    Wheels: Sun Ringle MTX 33 Rims With Hope pro 2 evo hubs, 36h, sapim triple butted spoked,
    Tires: Bontrager FR3 Front, Bontrager 29 Front OEM moved to rear
    Cassette: Shimano HG61 29er. 12-36T
    Bars: Race Face Evolve XC 710mm width, 25.4 Clamp
    Grips: Oury
    Brakes: Same crappy Promax as stock, front rotor upgraded to 203mm.
    Pedal: Wellgo Platform (the cheaper ones, not magnesium)







    The wheels where a huge improvement in stiffness. Less side to side flex, especially in the front. No more pinch flats, especially with the volume increase in the rear. Quite tight between the rear derailleur and tire though.

    I thought that was a major change, but 2014 is going to be the year I really frankenstein this beast.


    Planned Upgrades, Parts in Hand, on bike, and on order:

    Front Axle: 9mm thru axle, Dt Swiss RWS
    Stem: Race Face Respond 60mm, 10 degree Rise
    Bars: Race Face Respond 740mm, 31.8 clamp, 1.5" rise
    Seatpost: Thomson Elite Setback
    Seatpost Collar: Thomson
    Seat: Bontrager SSR
    Brakes: Shimano Saint
    Rotors: Dual Shimano Icetech 203mm
    Crank: Race Face Turbine 3x9
    Front Derailleur: Shimano XT direct mount with Adapter (tire clearance)
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano XT
    Left Shifter: Shimano Saint 3 Speed SL810 (got this for $35!)
    Right Shifter: Shimano XT 9 speed
    Chain: KMC










    Looking forward to this build. My brakes have been scary for a long time. I chew through pads, they are noisy as hell, and they prevent me from going fast because I can't ever stop how I want to. So I went balls out on the brakes.

    I have been looking forward to a thomson for a while, disappointed that with the new seat it really doesn't set me back any further than my 12mm setback ssr post that was bent. However, I feel I can comfortably sit back further on the saddle. Haven't test ridden it yet. Have mostly everything, waiting for a few items to come in and I will build it up.

    Looking at tires too. The bontragers have good grip, but weak sidewalls. I don't air down or run tubeless because of my weight, but I do ride places where sidewall tears are possible. I have done it before 3 miles into a 6 mile trail. Walking back always sucks. Looking at the X-King, Trail King, and some Maxxiss models. Need big volume and super tough sidewalls while having lowish rolling resistance and good pavement behavior.

    6'2", currently 230lb (sans gear).

    Currently on a Rocky Mountain Instinct 950 (L). I adore this thing, because it's the first bike I consider usable in stock form with just a KS Lev post. The SLX brakes and Inferno25 wheels make this actually usable, and the suspension travel is taking me places comfortably right up to the edge of my confidence level (which caps off at dropping 8' craggy rock sections).

    Previous bike was a '13 GT Sensor 9r Elite - wound up putting XT Brakes, MTX-33 Rims, KS eTen Post, and Geax Saguaros on it, because each of those predecessor parts wasn't up to the task (Avid Elixir1 brakes that needed bleeding every mile, Alex MD19 rims that I could knock utterly out of true on flat ground, Maxxis Asspens that only had grip because of the magical properties of rubber, not anything to do with the practically nonexistent tread).

    Sold my N9 frame and bought a Cannondale F29 Carbon. Converted it to 1x10 and added a Thomson Elite seat post in lieu of the stock setback post. Bike is just slightly too big for me so I needed to shorten up the cockpit. Still needs a shorter stem but at $90...that can wait for a little while.

    I used the parts from the N9 and rebuilt the diSSent (single speed). It has a Manitou fork that I'd like to get rid of in lieu of a carbon rigid fork.

    253 pounds.

    Just picked up my SC Tallboy today after taking my Trek Wahoo in to check on a frame warranty replacement. Only bike I actually felt awesome on out of all the bikes I tried. Haven't even popped her cherry yet, been sick today but tomorrow, hopefully will get better.

    It is a 150mm bike meant for a lot more rough stuff then I ride. So most the time the bike is just wondering "what dumb sh!t would ride me on trail like this?" Then I turn him up the hill, and he is like "ohh you fat son-a-b!tch...d@mn you!!"

    I bought the bike to handle my size, not the trails I ride. So far, so good.

    Just picked up an XL Santa Cruz Superlight 29 last week, an upgrade from my hardtail.
    Love it so far but still tweaking the fit.
    Installed a Thomson Elite layback post and a 10 degree rise 110mm stem and have a 120mm Reba on the way. Other than those modifications it's a pretty good fit and is holding up well to my abuse.
    Changed the tires as well. The stock Crossmarks worked ok but I threw a 2.25 Ardent on the rear and a 2.1 Ignitor on the front. Much better now.
    A shot before the mods. No after shot yet.

    220 lbs as of this morning and 6' even. I recently purchased my 2014 Trex Remedy 9 29er and am still in the process of tweaking it the way I like it. Added Race face Atlas pedals and some new grips after chopping some of the bar down. As of now that's all that has been done.

    Wheels and maybe a pike are on the docket for upgrades.

    Just as an update...

    6'4" 290# I have been riding a 2013 Camber Comp since December 2012 and have only had a single spoke nipple sheer off. I have not even had to true the wheels since that was fixed in the summer of 2013. The Elixer 3s leave something to be desired in power for me, I would not take this down a gnarly hill since I would not be able to stop. Those will be replaced soon.
