    Suspension upgrades for a 2012 Specialized camber comp

    Hi All,

    I've been riding my camber comp for a year now and really like the geometry of the frame and how comfy it is too ride, so I want to continue using the bike for the next couple of years.

    One thing about it i'm not enjoying as much is the suspension, the recon silver isn't as responsive as other forks i've had and the ario in the rear has always felt saggy (Even when pumped up)

    So my questions are
    What would you recommend as a replacement for the recon silver, my budget is about $600 for another Qr 120mm fork, I was thinking a Reba or SID xx or rct.

    Secondly, i'm wanting to replace the rear shock, but for the life of me I can't work out the appropriate replacement size shock. So does anyone know what the size is and can recommend a replacement (Thinking monarch)

    Feel free to recommend any Marzocchi, Fox, Manitou or Magura forks that would work as well.

    Cheers

    Reba RCT3 would be great. More aggressive and stiffer than SID. For rear, 200x49 is the rear shock size for the 29r. Monarch is fine, Monarch Plus is the mack daddy rear shock for aggressive riding.

    Is the sizing for the rear suspension on the 26" 200x49?

    Why don't you look it up on the Spec'd site?
