    I'd agree that it is a well balanced bike

    Hmmm... I did about a 4' drop off into sand and feels like I lost about a 3rd of the pressure out of the ARIO rear shock

    The ario is 100% garbage unless you're a small rider or don't hit anything hard

    Buy a fox RP2 or RP23, no more issues

    Kinda what I figured. I think I'm going to go FOX Van Rc with ti spring. It'll be a small weight penalty but durable and consistant

    Keeping in mind I don't use lockout features. ARIO has autosag but for a better shock I can skip autosag

    I'm not seeing much positive reviews on RP2 or RP23. I think I'll pass on them. I have ridden and liked the fox van Rc coil on 3 of my old bikes. I have seen some good reviews for Monarch air. The FOX DHX coil looks neat but I'm not sure if I need all the features.

    I believe the bike is more of an XC bike.

    Looks like the ARIO rear shock lost about 75psi on that 4" drop. I'm looking into FOX RP23 or FOX VAN RC coil. I kinda like the FOX RP23 because it is already on other Cambers and would be a bolt on job. The adapters already exist. I've never seen a FOX VAN RC on a Camber so if I went that route I don't know that I'd be able to just buy the appropriate adapters to bolt it up. The coil is my preferred route.

    Ok. I've settled it. Ordering a FOX Van Rc with 650# spring from the shop where I bought the bike originally.

    Converting my stock Captains to 2bliss Ground Control and Fast Trak 2.1 and 2.2 respectively. I am not sure what the stock wire bead Captains weigh, but I am sure the switch will drop some weight.

    New Camber Owner

    Hey Everyone
    New to the forums. Just picked up a 2013 Camber Comp to replace my 12 year old Cannondale F800. Went on a 15 mile ride Saturday, and I had a blast. This may be my last bike (I'm 56. been riding since 1984), but I was beating the youngsters up the hills.Tried to launch off everything I could. Hairy downhills with lots of leaves still. It will take some time to get used to 2X10 gearing, disc breaks, FS, and 29 inch wheels. A completely different animal. Hope we have a mild winter like last year.

    Could be your last bike, but unless you have some medical condition and live that long, can't see why you couldn't still be riding into your 80's.
    Bike riding should be seen as prolonging your life and fitness unless you crash a lot or get taken out by a truck whilst road riding.

    I'm 54 and I normally ride with a guy 20 years older then me. I only hope to still be riding when I'm his age.

    Cambers seem like a good bang for the buck bike.

    I agree. I just tend to keep my bikes a long time. This is only my 4th bike. Started with a Schwinn High Sierra. Hope to be riding till the end.

    My Camber came with Fast Traks front and rear. the bike shop let me trade the fr for a ground control. Big difference in grip.
    If the path ahead looks dangerous ------- it probably is!

    Fast trak is a great rear tire. Surprisingly grippy especially in mildly wet conditions
