    Camber EVO conversion

    Can I convert a standard 2013 camber to an evo model? I picked up a fox 34 29er on sale and was wondering if I can upgrade the rear suspension to the evo geometry as well?

    It looks like the Evo gains it's extra travel by using a 197x51 shock vs. the 197x48 shock the standard model has. The 26" Stumpjumper also uses a 197x51 shock, so there are several options available.

    From what I was told for my stumpy 26 you only need evo link. For the 29er stumpys you need evo link and chainstay. So I would assume you need same for 29er camber.

    Did any of you guys get a straight answer on this? I'm also interested in converting a regular 2014 Camber to an Evo...

    Thanks!

    A buddy of mine got the Cane Creek Double barrel inline designed for the Camber Evo and a 130mm Pike for his Camber Expert Carbon. He only has a few rides on it but LOVES it.

    The stays, link, and shock are different. There is also a slight front triangle difference between the 2014 and 2015.

    I think the difference in geometry on the front triangle is just due to the increase in fork travel

    from the frame geometry perspective the only difference is the shock adapter. Evo has shorter "arms" and evo logo
