    The pike is adjustable too so if you get a 140mm you can lower it to 130. But I am not sure what the procedure is like.

    Does anyone have a weight on the 2013 or 2014 carbon frame (evo or non-evo model)?

    I heard from my LBS that the sworks frame uses Fact 11 carbon and is only 1 lbs lighter than the Expert Carbon frame with Fact 9 carbon, which is also aprox 1 or 1.5 lbs lighter than the aluminum frame.

    "Only" a pound lighter? One pound is a HUGE difference in frames.

    Well the price increase of the sworks fact 11 carbon frame is pretty substantial for 1 pound of gain over the Fact 9 Carbon frame.

    Consider the Camber Comp Carbon is a complete bike with xt level parts for 3800 bucks...
    But for a 1 pound drop of frame weight the sworks edition is sold as a frame only for 4200 bucks with no componets or wheels.

    I have a 2013 Camber Comp and have trouble setting sag on the fork. To get it to 20 or 25% sag I only have 70PSI in the fork. I am 6'1 and 195lbs. I have to run about 90PSI to keep it from bottoming on a 2 foot drop. What am I missing? What PSI do you run?

    I have a 2014 Camber Comp Carbon and use the information in the link to help me. Read the entire page - it may give you an idea what to do.

    We have a little kid that rides on the group rides occasionally that would put that Grom to good use.

    I would recommend riding it.... running with it won't be as much fun.

    and congrats on the new bike... hope you love yours as much as the rest of us.
    Fat guys need bikes too.

    My ridding buddy just picked up a new Camber Comp today for $1,995 at Mike's Bikes. We did an eight mile ride up Mt Tam to break it in.

    Hey guys I noticed the discussion about upping your fork travel. I'm thinking the same, a Pike knocked down to 120 or 130. 130 would be better as it makes the head angle 69 degrees but how else woul it affect the handling do you think? Have you guys done it yet and how does it handle. I have a 2012 Pro Frame.

    I've tried 120mm and wanted a little more cushion going down, but then I tried 150mm and wanted way less because steering and balance suffered.
    So, 130 sounds just right.
    Might want to find a light weight fork than the Pike tho.

    For you guys that have increased fork travel - have you had to make any adjustments to the stem/spacers/bar setup? I would imagine that just legging it out would increase the height of the bars as well, changing the feel of the bike. Thanks!

    I prety much slammed my headset by lowering my top spacers -20mm and also shortened my stem length -10mm to an 80mm.

    I recomend something similar when going past 120mm due to HT angle.

    Those are really personal preferences though.

    Great thanks guys. Going to go to my LBS on the weekend to discuss maybe a Revelation fork at 130 mm I run a 70 mm stem and my bars have one 5 mm spacer between it and the headset now anyway. Will be nice to have a little slacker and more Cushion, what I may lose in climbing will be a fair trade. I hope .

    2013 Camber 29 with slammed Headset Short Stem and Big Fork combo.

    Headset has only Two 5mm spacers below the stem and one on top of the Thompson x4 80mm Stem.
    The fork is a RS Revelation 120/150 Dual Mode.
    Handle bar is a Thompson Carbon Flatbar cut to 720mm.

    Some posters on this page wanted todo this so here is a photo to show how it looks on my bike, sorry if I have posted this photo before.
