    be careful crash4, with all that seatpost and the 100mm stem that's on there the people around here will be telling you that your bike doesn't fit you!

    Sure is a sign that a bigger frame prob. would have been best though.

    A smaller size helmet would probably be in order.

    I test rode a Camber Elite 29er a few days ago and really liked it, and am really thinking about getting one. The brakes seemed fine to me -- they're "pieces of crap"? Here's what Spec's site says they are:

    BRAKES: Custom Avid Elixir 3 R SL, hydraulic disc, tool-less reach adjust, alloy backed organic pads, G3 Clean Sweep rotor

    BRAKE LEVERS: Custom Avid Elixir 3 SL hydraulic, tool-less reach adj.

    Would have to see you on it. How much post is in the seat tube? It may just be a fine, but looks like its barely in there...350mm posts aren't very long.
    It could just be a visual thing looking at it on here though.

    I thought they were talking about the Camber Comp which has Tektro Draco brakes.

    it's a 400mm post...the min insertion line is 1" in the frame.

    Where do you find out min insertion for seat post? I have the stock 350 for the camber and just wondering what the min insertion for those are.

    Aaaahhh. I'd never heard of those. All the rest have Elixir: 3 SL, R SL, 5 SL or whatever. I don't know the diffs between those.

    Usually there is a line on the seatpost that says minimum insertion.

    The Dracos are ok - they do stop you pretty well. They are better than the Shimanos sets I have had on my previous bikes. I don't care for the levers myself.

    Or a hole in back of seat tube. Looks like right under the "A" in camber

    Johnny....I read a 350mm comes with medium. How are you fitting...leg length wise? Did you check with your heel/knee bend like I mentioned before

    See this is exactly why some of us question the fit sometimes. By you not knowing this...which is not your fault really. Some crappy lbs employee could have jacked it way out to make a bike fit you, not that they would...but we all know the type I'm referring to.

    It's very dangerous and bad for frame if it's not in past the minimum...actually more is better. I always have mine in 1"-2" past minimum(hole in seat tube)

    I would make sure that the post is below the minimum insertion line on the seat tube. Protecting the frame is more important than the post.
