    Camber Carbon Expert EVO 2014 fork upgrade?

    Hello all, I have a 2014 Camber Carbon Expert EVO with the Roval carbon traverse fatti wheels, been riding it for over three years now and the new bike bug has hit me. So I figure I have about 8 grand in this bike. Up grades, wheels, breaks, oval chain ring, seat, carbon handle bar and so on. So, Ive used this bike for it's intended purpose as well as a couple of endurance events. Its been a good bike. Now I'm thinking I would like to get a nice hard tail and replace the camber with something in the 6 inch travel range.....But my wife thinks we should spend more money on paying off the house, blah.... She thinks I should get the hard tail, keep my Camber, and be happy with that. Now here is my question. Can the Camber Carbon Expert EVO 2014 handle a 140 or 150 mm fork? Sorry I'm so long winded, but I have important decisions to make here, ya know bike stuff. Thanks
    Better than most, not as good as some.

    I know many guys who ran 140mm. Seat angle gets a little slack so seated climbing suffers a little.

    I'd be tempted to keep the Camber as light as possible and get a 160mm bike rather than a HT.

    Option 1: put a new fox 34 on there. 130mm travel.

    Option 2: sell the bike. Put the stock wheels on if possible, and sell wheels separately. Buy an S-works Fuse $6500 retail. It will do everything the Camber will do. Get a cheap 6" bike to cover your gravity junky days.
