    Yes still 142. In the description of the camber they say it was a 148 Axel.

    I doesn't matter for me.

    No issues at all. I made sure there was enough clearance but letting all the air out of the shock and compressed the swingarm. No contact between the shock and frame. Make sure you keep the pivot area greased. Mine developed at creak but was resolved with some grease.

    I have 2016 SW camber 29. Ordered from bikeyoke.com, got shock from LBS, installed it and starting shreading. Pretty straight forward.

    Can you measure the can width? I'm trying to figure if cane creek inline would fit camber with bikeyoke.

    I have a 2014 camber, and am looking to upgrade to either 11spd or 12spd. Does anyone know if my original hubs (Specialized Hi Lo disc, 4x-sealed cartridge bearings, 12mm thru-axle, 142+ spacing, 32h) are convertible to the XD driver?

    Wow...what a mistake Specialized made. In 3 months hoping to get my first 29r! Still riding a 6 year old 26" Ventana Salty and I am 6'4" tall! At 210 lbs was really hoping for Boost on the 2018 Camber. What were they thinking. Now leaning to Tallboy R Carbon. Thoughts?

    I'm thinking they are either making a brand new camber for 19, or dumping it alltogether.
    I've got a '16 Stumpy with a few upgrades including beefier 150mm fork, and bought a camber this spring. Both have been raced and ridden a lot. Both 29" comp carbon running 1x11 an traverse fattie wheels.
    At the moment, I feel that the Camber is way too close to the stumpy - but lacks the downhill and gnar capabilities. The Stumpy is more or less as fast even on asphalt. Kinda disappointed, as my old "13 camber evo actually felt faster.

    So....the 18 stumpy has boost

    Yeah, for a 2018 bike, I can't believe the Camber isn't boost either. It should've been boost in 2016. I think they've had enough input about the scam er that Spesh will be doing something awesome for 2019. Shedding a lot of weight, further separation from the SJ, different frame etc.
    Just a guess though..

    Thanks...know that it is either being phased out or completely re-done in 2019 is even more incentive to go with a Tallboy. Too bad because I really wanted a more 'mainstream' bike as I have had issues with semi-custom and boutique bikes in the past (even though SC is not as boutique as it used to be).

    Thanks 103 for the Bikeyoke info. I ended up grabbing one and a Fox DPS shock. Bikyoke shipping was fast, and pretty easy to install. Things of note for me:
    -It used the old style DU bushing vs the current Fox 5 piece nylon style, so I had to get a shop to press that in.
    -The SV air can fits fine in the frame
    -The Specialized FSR manual has some advice on which order to take the linkage apart/install

    Not too much time on the bike just yet with the new shock, however initial impressions are good.

    12 speed versions get the 12x148

    will the 12 speed even fit on a 142? I'm seeing 148 on the 12s but 142 on the 11s..

    So you have to spend $4,400 on the Expert to get a 148 Rear. Still stupid.

    EDIT: Actually dutchronnie's 1x12 Expert above still has 142 rear. Don't believe SPZ's specs.

    Go with the SC if you like how it rides. I love being able to order bearing kits directly from SC for my gf's 5010. Also no proprietary shocks is nice.

    Just looked at specs for the Comp Carbon 29 - 1X and it states, "Specialized, sealed cartridge bearings, 12x142mm thru-axle, 28h".

    Have to go to Expert to get 148mm....pricey.Specialized, sealed cartridge bearings, 12x148mm thru-axle, 28h

    for the record, the 2017 and up 650B Cambers are boost front and rear. Why they chose not to do that for the 29er I dont know.

    and per my posts pages back, the boost and massive clearance on the 650B models allow you to run full 2.8 plus tires.

    if you look at my thread, it may be a reason to buy the 650B over the 29er...

    Frankly, i thought I love my bike, i wouldn't buy either in stock form. Id probably want +120mm and boost from a 29er, and id want all the upgrades i did to my camber stock on a 650B bike.

    but as a whole though, freaking love my bike in its current state.

    You'll struggle. The rate is so flat that anything other than a small air can will have you blowing through the travel. The best option is to service your air can and pivot hardware regularly.

    Thinking about getting this , throwing a dropper on it and riding out !!

    148 rear. Too bad we didn't see a threaded BB this year.

    Threaded BB only on Camber 650B base model - why is that? I guess it's a great bike to upgrade for the price ($1650). You could make it anything you want and I like the 148 rear.
    For another $1500 you could load the frame up with a bunch of lightweight components and have a nice ride.

    This may be a bad post for this forum, but I'm debating between getting either the 2018 Camber Comp 29er or the 2018 Trek Fuel Ex 7.

    Any recommendations?

    I think everyone is going to say camber, just because it's camber thread.
    I tested carbon versions of both bikes when i bought my camber. For me trek re:aktiv wasn't that good. Also i love the geo and fit of the camber, it's little higher then trek.

    I'd lean more toward the SC Tallboy or the Pivot 429 in that range, but yes, the Camber over the Fuel.

    I'm going to buy a new bike next summer. Tallboy is on my short list. Waiting to see where spesh is going with camber. Let's hope it get same rear then epic with 110mm of travel with 120 fork without brain. I'm looking for xc/marathon bike and tallboy is on the heavy side for that.

    I like the swat door, but there are good options to go without it. Oneup edc tool for example or epic swat box. Swat door adds 200g on the frame, so weight weenie in me says noooo.

    Is anyone else hoping Specialized re-makes the Camber into a lightweight XC/Trail crusher? I'm dreaming of a near 2018 epic frame weight (true FSR, no brain), with 110mm rear travel, 67-68 degree HA, 75 degree SA, optimized for a 120mm Fox 34 and a 125mm dropper post. Sub 25 pound total bike weight! I'm 200 lbs and I am in search of a fun 29er with updated geometry that is burly enough that it won't break every time I push hard downhill, but still light enough to race an occasional XC race. There are a lot fun new short travel 29er trail bikes out now (Scott Spark, Tallboy, Pivot 429 trail, and the current Camber) but they all end up weighting at least 27-28 pounds. If I'm going to get a XC bike, it needs to save more than 1-2 lbs vs. my 165mm AM bike.

    I made the same speculation bit earlier. Let's see what they will bring to us. I heard from my lbs that spesh is trying to lose year models. Let's hope they do that and release new camber earlier then next fall.

    Pretty much exactly what I want. Same reach as the 18 Enduro and no steeper than 67.5 with a 120mm.

    Isn't the stumpjumper 67.5 ha? I'm hoping that they will keep the current ha. They have to fill the gap between stumpjumper and epic, no point of making camber the same numbers as stump.

    There's zero downsides to slacker head angles, only benefits. The industry just wants you to believe there is so you'll have to buy more bikes.

    On my tight singletrack trails (natural, not build) i wasn't able to make all the corners with 67.5ha 130mm bike. Slacker ha makes longer bikes and so on. I'm on xl size camber and don't want it any longer.

    1 degree is less than 2cm in wheelbase. Must be some pretty tight switchbacks that 2cm is make or break.

    Just building up my repainted Camber 2011 frame.
    It's a M4 aluminium frame.
    Just weighted at 10.65kg without pedals and without chain.
    (chain to be installed but I broke the derailleur hanger bolt )

    Oh btw, I set it up as XC bike, not a Trail bike.
    It's not much slower than my 2018 Epic HT 29er S-works (8.65kg) on the trails.

    Color is 5015 RAL

    So if we have a look in spesh line. Epic has 69.5 ha and enduro 66 ha, demo has 63.5, but different wheelsize. From epic to demo there is 6 degree difference in ha. For me 1 degree change in ha is quite big. There are more to geo and riding feel, but ha is important.
