    I should have posted sooner, but I destroyed my rear cassette on my Camber two weeks ago. I haven't ridden since because last week was spent on Maui and this week it is nasty.



    I didn't do anything wrong, I just over torqued the pedals and it folded over. I have a Shimano SLX to replace it...

    Adios Camber. You were a fine bike to start with, but I needed more. I got a Tallboy LTc and honestly the difference between it and my 2012 camber 29 is night and day. Thanks for all the helpful tips and photos, but if anyone's looking to buy a medium, she'll be for sale soon.

    Tallboy LT is a better comparison to a stumpjumper. I rode the two last fall and they didn't feel right for my usual riding. In hindsight a 34 or 35mm stanchion fork on either of those bikes might have sold me on them.

    I'm sure it will be a great ride. Fat bike is on my mind next.

    Nice set up, I want.

    What's required for this upgrade? Just pop off 2 stock rings and add the Wolf's Tooth? any special screws/bolts needed?

    You'll need some shorter chain ring bolts for the single ring.

    My riding buddy lured me into the bike shop yesterday, and unbenounced they had my new 2014 Camber Comp Carbon waiting in back for me to take home.

    Swapped the peddles out this morning and met up for a 10 mile ride and I'd have to say I'm very pleased with it. I never weighed my old Camber but this stock XL is weighing in at 28.8lbs. I think my old one was right around the 33lbs mark. The suspension is right on, though I didn't hit any of the faster downhill stuff so I left the setting on "trail". The 2x10 has a very wide range, shifts quick and clean, and though the brakes aren't as strong as the one on the Fuel that I tested they still get the job done. Overall the it definitely feels quicker, stiffer, and more nimble then my old Camber. I've got a little dialing in of the set to do, and a tubeless conversion in the near future, but other then that, I'm just going to ride the crap out of it.

    I like the matte black. What kind of camber did you have previously?

    The previous Camber was a 2012 entry level 29er. Nice ride and I'd take it any day over the current enty level Camber, but there is a noticeable difference between it and the new ride.

    The 28.8 lbs was with the plastic peddles that came with the bike.

    I pickup up a used 2013 Camber, took it out for it's maiden voyage today. It was a little muddy, but was still able to get somewhat of a feel for the bike. I like.

    What a beaut. That mat black carbon is sexy. 28 lbs. nice. My 2012 comp aluminum is 30.5 lbs. If I had the dough I get the carbon.

    Hi!
    I have Camber Expert 2012 and I'm considering on removing my bigger chainring (38T) and keeping just my 24T chainring on S-1250 crankset. Would that be possible so I could have 1x drivetrain? Anybody tried that?

    One thing that peeves me about the 29r is how flexy the front wheel is. I have even brushed the fork stanchions with the tyre on occasions. Has anybody else noticed this, or is it just me?

    (Admittedly I have an RS SID RLT with the 5mm skewer and OS28 end caps, but still...).

    Re: Official Specialized Camber Thread

    Are these wheels convertible to 15mm? Wheels are oem to 2012 carbon. Control trail 29.

    I have the same set-up and haven't had this problem. Make sure your skewer is clamped tight. Are your wheel bearings loose?
    If the path ahead looks dangerous ------- it probably is!

    I have the RWS skewer - it made a big difference, but the thing is still pretty flexy.

    No problem with the bearings. I might get someone check the spoke tension.

    A flexy wheel will not cause the top side of the wheel to rub against the fork stanchions. Now a stiff wheel will do that if the clamping is loose or the fork is not stiff. A flexy wheel will only flex on the side making contact with the ground, while the top part remains centered.

    if he goes with the 30t I believe the stock bolts will work as you thread into the chainring vs the usual SS bolts you use with the 32t and above

    Looks like the Evo frame has several geometry differences, and it's not just a longer travel fork that makes it different than the "standard Camber"

    Having been on the case and searching the forum, I do believe now this is true.

    Heard a faint grinding sound after 3 months on my 2012 comp. Shop replaced wheel on warranty. New wheel had different louder hub. Louder free wheel click. The good loud. The hub looks beefier too.

    Medium. It seems to be easier to make a slightly too big bike smaller than the other way around. But I really don't think you would need to with a medium. The best way to be for sure is to throw a leg over one if possible.

    @ 5'6" I think it will have to come down to a test ride, you are borderline between the two sizes.

    I'm in between 5'6" and 5'7" and have a 30 inch inseam. I ride a medium. The standover can be a little tight, but on the bike it rides great and doesn't seem too big.

    I´ve tested a 26" with the small frame and it was perfect, but didn´t have a chance to see a 29 on the small size, but it looks like on 29, the wheels are too big for a small frame, kind of disproportional, what do you guys think??

    I have 2013 Evo Camber in medium,even though I always ride large at almost six foot and also have a large Pivot Mach 6.the med Camber fits larger then its sizing.I use a 80mm stem and just like the fit overall very much,the bike is a blast to ride!

    In need of a new cassette for the 2013 camber carbon comp. Going to purchase the xtr m980. Do I need the dyna version or not? Rear derailleur is the stock xt shadow plus. Wheelset is the industry nine torch. Thanks.

    I think the Shimano 10 speed cassettes are all Dynasys (which is just there marketing gimmick term for 10 speed). Dyna-Sys: Shimano's next generation 10-speed MTB drivetrain

    So yes... you will need the 10 speed (Dynasys) Shimano XTR cassette.

    hey guys looking to upgrade my front shock. I have a 2013 camber comp with the Reba on it which I'd like to upgrade to a pike with a 15 millimeter maxilite. they sell the internals to adjust the 140 to a 120but I was just wondering is there any camber owners out there who ride with 140 millimeter fork.

    Thanks

    I have a pike 120-140mm and it's a world of difference to the Reba. I had a lot of trouble bottoming out the reba with the recommended air pressure and it was way too firm if I increased the air (seals were also popping off). The Pike is smooth and plush. I run it at 120mm 90% of the time and only increase it on the big stuff. Don't notice any difference in the geometry. I'm 210lbs if that makes a difference.

    I also broke my 2012 Camber Comp 29er. Chainstay non drive side and front frame near weld of bottom bracket. Glad to hear (not really cause I really liked this bike) that I am not the only one to have broke one, or two as in your case. Since I ride a small the only frame available for replacement was a 2013 Camber Carbon Pro. Came with the CTD Autosag shock and a X-9 crankset. Overall I am pleased with the replacement but it is not the bike I bought and fell in love with. My Comp was Black and White and my new one is Red and Black...
