    Pull the wheel. Put a blade screwdriver between the pads and twist. The goal is to press the Pistons back into the caliper, which will give more room for the pads in the caliper.

    I purchased a camber carbon expert EVO in medium . They had the large they as well. The medium fit like a glove and I am 5'10".

    I think you should lean toward the LG at 6'

    Loosen the bolts holding the caliper so it can float a bit. Spin the wheel and then tighten them.

    I wish I had the budget for your bike, but I'm kind of pushing it for the Camber Comp Carbon - as I started my budget at around $2,500.

    My LBS is getting in a CCC in Large next week for me to demo - hopefully I will like it.

    2013 carbon Camber and 2014 carbon Camber are not the same bike at all. A killer deal might make it worth it, but the 2014's rear end makes for a better ride, IMHO. I rode both designs before buying my Camber.

    Were talking about the Expert EVO model . There is one major difference between the 2013 & 2014 , the customized pike shock . But for $3000 difference it's not worth it .

    The 2013 Camber Carbons still used the old style of rear swing arm that has the pivot located on the seat stay. The 2014 Camber Carbons have switched to the newer swing arm with the pivot being concentric with the shock mount.

    2013 Camber Carbon model:


    2014 Camber Carbon model:


    I rode both styles of rear swing arm and the newer one provided a plusher more predictable ride. There is a bigger difference than just the front fork on the bikes because they are different bikes entirely. You are right though.... maybe not a $3K difference... I would probably be on a 2012 carbon model instead of my 2013 aluminum (which has the new swing arm design) if I could have swung that kind of crazy deal.

    Going back to that cable rub issue under the bottom bracket...

    I (noobishly) took the slack out of my cables under the bottom bracket, because I was afraid of them getting caught on rocks, sticks, etc, and ended up with a gouge comparable to the one on mkasner's bike.

    http://fcdn.mtbr.com/attachments/spe...read-photo.jpg

    I put the 40mm of slack back in the cable as per GR1822's post. But, with the current extent of damage, is this going to ruin my bike? Is it safe to ride?

    My guess is a bottom bracket shell is tough and this shouldn't be an issue for the majority of riding situations.

    Picked up my 2014 Camber Comp Carbon today. The LBS was willing to make the wheels tubeless free of charge, so I took them up on it. I had a short ride after I got it home to set the tubeless wheels, but tomorrow's ride up Mt Tamalpais will give me a better idea of how well it rides. Below is a photo after I got it home.

Also make sure your rear derailleur is a type 2 the one that comes on a 2013 camber comp is.
    The WF front chainring is a direct replacement ? 104mmBD. Also did you have to replace the chain ring bolts ? Any adjustments needed to the drive line ?
    Your OEM chain , was 116 links ? how many links did you end up removing ?

    Yes I did need chain ring bolts, I dont recall how many links I ended up removing, when I did all of this I bought a new chain so it was a bunch. This is what I read to help me out, Converting 2x10 to 1x10 - Mountain Bike FAQ

    Converted my 2x10 to 1x10 tonight .
    Picked up a raceface red 32T chainring from my LBS , removed 2 links from my KMC X10sl chain, removed front derailer , front trigger shifter and cable, 38T chainring and the granny chainring . Only issue I had was that I could not get the sram s2200 crank bolt off to get the crank arm off for removal of the granny chainring . I ended up cutting off the granny chainring with a dremel tool knowing I'll probably never use it again . The 38T chain ring just slid off the crank arm as well as the new raceface 32T slid back on with ease . Utilized the same crank bolts . The chain line integrity was fine as I tested shifting with ease .

    Looks nice!

    If I ever get my wife a road bike so we can stop riding our of road bikes on the road together, I will take mine down to 1x10. A 30 or 32 would suit my needs rather well.

    Re: Official Specialized Camber Thread

    Nice looking bikes guys!

    I've got a '13 Camber Comp. Recently got hooked up with a 120 Pike & got it put on last week! In all, I've got the Pike, a short 35mm Straight Line stem, 780mm bars & SLX brakes. Also an e*thirteen wheelset. And a Reverb dropper post. That Pike is SO smooth it's crazy. It's a whole new bike.

    I ended up removing 2 links, looks like you can only remove in 2's . I could remove another 2 . Was your front chain ring a 32 or 30T and did u have a type 2 derailer ?

    Ah re read your post , you had a 30T FS so 4 links , I put on a 32T FS so 2 links should be fine. I am testing this drivetrain out tomorrow . I wish there was a way to remove 3 links but its paired in 2's one narroe and one wide .

    Yeah dont do this, I just bought some new renthal carbon light bars at 740mm wide in a 10mm rise and also bought the duo stem that is 50mm, its was great going down hil but climbing was not so great, I returned the stem and now have Truvativ AKA All Mountain 80 5-Degree and its much better. BTW im 6'1" on a large frame.

    Just picked up a '14 Evo Comp at the LBS. Got it built out to my initial liking and out on a shakedown. Posted thoughts over in the 29er forum. It's a companion to my E29 S-Works.

    I would not recommend to buy these aluminium bolts to anyone. It's way too much expensive toy, and made of very-very soft material (the bolt-head gets broken easily, creating you a trouble to get the bolt out of the crank)... You can rather save 95% cash, and buy classic steel bolts.

    Upgraded my drivetrain to 1x10. Raceface N/W 30T ring, XT cassette with One-Up 42t+16t sprockets added, and an SLX chain.

    It's been great so far. I did have to snag a longer b-tension screw though.

    I also upgraded to a Butcher 2.3 up front. It's been fantastic so far!

    Now I just need to wait for my buddy to re-lace my rear Roval Control Carbon wheel and I'll be done...

    Did you have to shorten your chain ?

    I want to do the same thing , I want the one up componets 40T and it comes with the 16T replacement cog . This should provide a smooth shift transition .

    My Front original was a 38T and went with a 32T , removed 2 links from the chain and my cassette is 11-36 . I am hoping the chain should still be long enough if I mount that 40T cog out back .

    Broke the KMC chain couple days before the 4th. Must have been all that cross chaining before going 1x10. Went with an XT replacement, only thing the LBS had in stock. The knuckle head put it on backwards. Good thing they gave me an extra pin.

    I was incorrect in my earlier post, the Camber came with a 11-36t cassette, not 34.

    I broke my KMC chain at about 250 miles. Ended up replacing it with a Shimano XT chain. The LBS said he didn't know why bike manufacturers didn't put the XT chains on original aside from saving a dollar per bike. He did make sure I knew that they could be put on backwards.

    Stretched my chain to replacement values in about 1000 miles. Replaced it with another KMC as I was happy with the performance. Breaking chains prematurely can also be a sign of bad form.... spint he pedals at a higher RPM( 75-90) instead of mashing them....

    Believe me when I say I don't mash pedals, that crap wears you out. Though to be fair The KMC chianti on my 20212 held up until it stretching called for a replacement. I think what my LBS was saying is that there is a higher probability of a chain break with KMC chain vs Shimano.

    I read somewhere that KMC manufactures all of the Shimano chains except for the XTR and Dura Ace chains. I use kmc and have never broken one. I think they are as good as it gets when is comes to chains.

    Guilty as charged, hammering uphill while down shifting.

    The only chain I have broken was done by shifting as I dropped off a curb and stood on the pedal (on my old bike)... not saying they can't break under "normal" use, but it is a lot less likely.

    OneUp Componets 40T & 16T on Camber carbon EVO

    Well I finally did the 40T conversion. I didn't want the 42T at this time but may do that after I test a few tough climbing courses on the 40T.

    I Also used the 16T OneUp replacement cog for the 15T and the 17T , have to say its not as smooth as a shift as I thought it was going to be. The 40T shifts perfectly as well as all the other cogs on cassette except the 16T replacement . I will pull it back off to recheck the position since OneUp uses one cog for both SRAM and shimano. Other than that it was a very easy install. Chain lenth was fine as I deflated my rear shock and tested the chain tension.

    I am sure this is not news, but it does make me happy to hear. Rock Shox is now offering a Monarch RT3 that is actually made to fit the newer style of Camber rear end. Considering I like my OEM Monarch , I like the idea of the upgrade to be able to have a pedal platform setting as I have no plans on putting any Fox product on the bike.

    Re: Official Specialized Camber Thread

    I picked up my 2014 camber comp carbon back in November 2013 and I think I have it all tweaked out the way I want it aside a brake upgrade when these stock ones wear out.

    Started out stock weight 28.8lbs

    Added:
    -XT clipless pedals
    -SWAT Top Cap Chain Tool
    -Z cage with SWAT multi-tool
    -Race Face carbon fiber set post
    -Topeak quick release saddle Lg saddle bag complete with alien head light because why not
    -Topeak mini air pump
    -Chinese 700mm carbon fiber handle bar (that I like a lot more then I thought I would)
    -Oury grips
    -Specialized bike computer
    -Marsh Guard
    -Last but not least Mavic Crossmax SLR 29 rims with S-works Ground Controle tires and XT cassette

    Before I put the wheel set on the bike was at 29.9 pounds but the new wheel set has brought the weight back down to it's out-of-the-box weight of 28.8lbs

    2014 Camber Carbon Comp

    Official Specialized Camber Thread-photo-3.jpgOfficial Specialized Camber Thread-photo-1.jpg

    New trail bike. Upgraded crankset with FSA SL-K crank and finishing kit. I decided on a 1 x 10. Using Wolf Tooth 40T giant cog and 30T Wolf Tooth front chainring. Went with Stan's Crest and S Works Captain Tires. Replaced the rear cassette with an XT. Less than 26lbs. Rides like a champ and looks the business.

    Keeping stock Shimano XT clutch rear derailleur, but did opt for the longer B-tension bolt. First ride impressions are pretty sweet. Looking to swap out the 15 rear cog for a 16T to lessen the transition from the 19T.
