    I have a triad 2 that leaked out of the pro pedal lever hole. I feel that a rebuild is my best option. I don't know that a ctd with trail adjust will be worth the money.

    Hey thanks, with a little tinkering I figured it out, I had the two big black spaces in the wrong spot and was getting some major rubbing.

    Hello. Is that some type of cable guard I see on the front down-tube?
    I just ordered a 2014 Camber Comp. Should I be concerned the derailer cables are exposed? Paul

    You should be concerned if the cables/hoses are fit too tight to the frame. The cable/hose will rub through the aluminum if it is in contact with the frame. No worries and no problems with the properly installed cables/hoses.

    Thank you Knight! I went for the Camber Comp because it was within my budget @ 1999.00. It was between that or the Trek Fuel 7 29er @ 2499.99. What I liked about the Trek is that it had internally routed cables & it did have Fox Evolution shocks. I hope that I made the right decision by going with the Camber Comp. In their beautiful red color.

    My buddy is looking at Cambers - where did you get a Comp for $1,999?

    Hi Matuchi! I ordered mine in person at bicyclesportshop.com in Austin, Tx. $1,999 + tax. I put it on lay-away. They require half down, in case you're interested. They also have the Camber Comp Evo on sale for $2899.00. They have them in stock.

    Thanks for the heads-up! I'm in California so I won't be able to take advantage of their offer. I bought a 2014 Camber Comp Carbon last month and my ridding buddy has ridden it a few times and is now looking at getting a Camber too. I'm trying to talk him into skipping the entry level Camber and go for the Comp. I hope you enjoy your new bike - I sure love mine!

    Cool! I am just getting back into it after 10 years & I'm coming from an old entry level Kona hard tail so the Camber Comp is like WAY more bike than what I'm used to. I think I'll be good for a while. Local retailers aren't selling the Comp as low as 1999? I know it retails for 2600 & that's why I went for it. Enjoy your ride!

    The local shop that carries Specialized has the Comp for $2,399 and the Camber for $1,699 and my buddy likes the $700 cheaper one at the moment. I haven't ridden for a long time and gave my 1996 StumperJumper M2 FS Comp to my son and picked up my new bike. Enjoy your ride!

    There is a dealer near me (Pittsburgh) that still has 2013 camber comps in stock and are selling them for 2,000 bike shop is called dirty harry's Dirty Harry's Verona Pa, Trek, Specialized, Santa Cruz, Niner, Pittsburgh , there actually spec'd better than the 14's and now with the 15's coming out they might lower them a little more.

    Creaky Camber

    My camber has just started to creak intermittently.

    It creaks most when pedaling over uneven terrain (when the suspension is actually doing work) - it doesn't really happen when coasting on smooth sections or the road. It sounds like it is coming from the rear shock mounts - I think from the bolt up front, where it mounts to the frame.

    I've seen various sources online recommending taking out the bolts, cleaning them, greasing and/or loctite-ing them up, and putting them back in. However, I haven't been able to find any good step-by-step how-to's.

    Does anybody have a detailed description of this process for a newbie mechanic like myself?

    Also - is this a potentially dangerous problem?

    If you can locate a 2013 Camber Comp, it is just about equal to the level of the 2014 Camber Evo. Finding one of those for $2K would be THE BIKE to buy if looking at Cambers. They will be scarce, but it is worth searching a bit for. I am totally unbiased, but I LOVE my 2013 Comp. LoL

    Does it creak when you stand on the pedals? My seat (henge comp) creaks. You may check that.

    Yeaaah.... except you won't notice it and you can't get the same spec without the Evo level now. The 2014 Comp is a bit of a let down after the 2013.

    My Triad 2 did the same last year where oil was leaking from the pro pedal lever. I had PUSH Industries rebuild it for ~$180.00. Quick turn around (about 1 week). Shock has been fine every since. It was cheaper than a getting a new CTD shock.

    I figured the upgrade to kashima RP23 plus a tune was worth 300.00 cad to me. I am still contemplating having the triad rebuilt as a spare for trips.

    I second what NTHA stated. The seats have a known creaking problem. Spray some lube where the seat rails run into the front of the seat. If that's the problem call your bike shop. Specialized is apparently aware of the issue and is compensating the bike shops for replacements. My shop is letting me pay the $30 difference and get the model with titanium rails. Worth a shot.

    It is always nice to have a spare so next time your shock leaks you don't have any down time...Swap it out and RIDE! Of course that's also why many of us have more than one bike

    Had a short ride with the kids, the ride over roots uphill is much improved, way better traction. Over major split earth it is also better. I can't wait to do an adult ride to see how much better on descent and high speed through roots.

    Have any of you ridden the camber evo on any downhill runs?? I'm thinking about trading out my camber comp for an evo in the fall and was wondering if I should just go for a stumpy or enduro instead.

    No. A camber on a downhill run would be a slow run. Sounds like you would be best served with an enduro. Horses for courses.

    As much as I like my Camber for pure fasr down hill runs I'd want a Stumpy.

    I have a 2013 Camber Comp.

    There is some play between my Monarch shock shaft and the u-shaped bracket that mounts directly to it. Not a lot, but there is some relative movement between the two. Can anybody tell me if this is normal or not?

    I would think this connection should be perfectly tight.

    See if the yoke has a method to tighten it. Compare against a new bike if you can.

    Yeah that would be ideal... I was wondering if anyone here had a camber in working order whose yoke they could describe.

    I can't access the bolt to tighten the connection without taking apart the rear triangle. I don't trust myself with such major surgery.

    Maybe if you just pulled out the front shock bolt you would have better access to the yoke.

    The bolt for the yoke is in the middle of the fork. Mine loosened up a bit about 3 months after I got the bike... I could feel the play coming from some where in my bike, but couldn't find it. It felt weird like a loose headset, but that was definitely not it. You can access the bolt well enough to tighten it by deflating your shock completely. The rear end will collapse and you will have enough space for a hex wrench. This is EXACTLY how mine was fixed at the shop... I felt rather silly for bringing it in for a simple fix, but I couldn't find the loose part.

    Mine loosened once too taking the linkage bolts allows it to move into a position you can fix it.

    Look what I brought home today

    2014 Camber Carbon EVO baby! It is bad to the bone. Quickly got it home and took it out for a quick hit on the trail. It is night and day different over my 2012 Camber. I am super excited for it!

    Yep, felt the same way. They made a lot of developmental progress between 2012 and 2013. I just went with the Comp Carbon model though, sometimes I wish I would have saved up for the Evo. Sweet bike.

    Bonking ... not feelin' well Mystery washers after taking apart suspension.

    I just took apart the required suspension linkages to service the shock on my 2013 Camber Comp (Monarch RL). I only removed 3 suspension pivot screws: 1x top shock pivot screw, and 2x yoke pivot screws.

    My question... I have 2x black washers that are slightly bigger, and 2x silver washers that are a bit smaller and thinner than the black ones. Where do these 4 washers go?

    I've got all published Specialized manuals for this model/year bike, but there are no exploded schematics or assembly guides.

    Thanks in advance,
    Fefillo

    I remember telling people the same thing when I bought my Camber (not Evo). I actually test rode a 2012 Camber on the trails and liked it a lot... when the time came to actually put the money on the table, I found out the 2013 model was available, so I went with the 2013 Camber to get the new rear end. It was a night and day difference. The 2012 has a "stiffer" or "firmer" feeling rear end. The 2013 redesign feels more active, or I think some say more plush. It is NOT pogo-like in the way the the big brother Stumpjumper FSR can be (especially for a bigger rider like me), it just feels more well planted.

    Is it worth ditching the old design and dropping more money? I don't think so. I think money would be better spent on an upgraded rear shock (like a Monarch RT3 or Fox Kashima) and a Pike up front... but that is just me.

    I now want to test a camber with the yoke now just to feel the difference for myself. Just Swapping an RP23 in place of my triad was a noticeable difference.
