    The shock and link and rear triangle are available for seperate purchase on any recent year model that you could upgrade without a whole new frame.

    Hey guys I noticed on my 2013 camber comp the crank arm says BB30, but when you look at the specs on the website page it says PF30, are they the same thing? I was thinking of replacing mine because they dont spin real freely and was not sure what to order.

    Thanks

    Any idea why Specialized offers the Brain rear shock on several high-end Stumpjumper FSRs but not on any of the Cambers. The Brain rear shock seems like a much better shock to spec on a XC/Trail bike like the Camber rather the the FSR Trail bike.

    To address the last 4 posts:

    1. The difference was very noticeable from the Triad to the new swing arm. It may or may not be with the upgraded shock. You also may like the feel of the old vs the new. It is a pretty subjective thing.

    2. I would be hard pressed to believe that you that the rear swing arm is a straight swap, BUT if it is, that would be pretty cool. Although I don't know how much a complete swing arm assembly cost to even venture a guess at whether or not it is cost effective.

    3. PF30 really means PFBB30. PF30 and BB30 cranks are interchangeable. The bottom bracket bearings are different.

    4. No Brain on Cambers. I would take a shot at saying, "Because it doesn't need it." Hear me out. The Epic is the hardcore racing bike. It is suppose to be a firm pedaling XC racing machine. Anything to help in that pursuit helps. The high end Stumpys have the Brain as well. The Stumpy is a pretty squishy pedaling bike. Although I think the CTD shocks would be just fine for the climbing, the Brain just allows you to not think about flipping a switch. In my experience with Stumpys, they NEED something to help pedaling uphill. The Camber is kind of the Goldilocks of the brand. It is a good pedaling platform (so long as you maintain good pedaling habits), so it doesn't need the Brain to aid in climbing. It is also more of a trail bike than it is a XC racing machine. It doesn't really need every bit of speed it can have. No to mention, it also keep the prices down some what.... and yearly maintenance is easier and cheaper (Brain shocks CANNOT be rebuilt at a bike shop, they must be sent in with a multi-week turn around time).

    FWIW, I wanted the Stumpy FSR Elite when I decided to get my Camber. I liked ALL OF THE SPECS of the SJ-FSR Elite on paper..... the ride was a different story. I just liked the ride of the Camber more... it just fit my riding style and terrain much better.

    I have a bent rear triangle and got a price quote of about 300 bucks for all new M5 alum triangle which is made of two halfs which cost about 150 each. The link is also available for around 70 bucks as is the shock of your choice.

    I have tried to get part numbers from a local bike shop with no success. I called last year in the summer, if I could get the part numbers, I would have them priced out and make the decision. I would prefer the evo version, every mm helps.

    I will get the part numbers for mine if you like but they are model specific.
    Best way to find out is call Specialized and tell them you bent yours and need a replacement. They offer crash discounts often too. But they wont deny your order, from my recent experiance.

    I would think I would require new link and hardware, yoke,and rear triangle. Anything else comes to mind?

    I also wish they sold a seperate fact9/10 Carbon frame but they only sell the fact11 and for a super high price of 4500 bucks. Pfft.

    I have considered picking up a used carbon bike for its frame to integrate with my gear but get worried about how bad the owner beat on it.

    Ha! Sorry dude.

    I now have 2 good rides on the new EVO camber. I am digging it. Now, like some of you have noted already. Is it worth the extra $$$$ to upgrade bikes? I came from a 2012 Camber Comp (with some decent upgrades already) to this EVO. It was a lot of money for sure. Did I need it? Nah. But I wanted it.

    My bike now weighs under 26lbs and that is with the heavy stock wheels. The RS Pike is a very nice upgrade and feels awesome on the trails. The bike just handles completely different to me. Will it make me a little better or faster? I certainly hope so. I think that with the improved linkage and 120mm of travel over the 110 it is giving me more confidence. The bike is certainly not holding me back.

    I love it! Can't wait for our super long ride tomorrow morning.

    I would like to ride the two back to back, I expect the pike to be the game changer.

    Don't forget the pike isnt a light weight fork like the SID\Reba 120 its usually matched with. It can change the bike weight noticably.
    Regardless I love my 2014 Revelation 150 which weighs the same as the pike.

    I was trying to wait for the 2015 Camber Comp, but the brakes failed on my old GT XCR2000. I didn't really want to spend much money on such an old bike, so decided new was the way to go... Nearly bought a base model 2014 camber, but the comp seemed like a worthy upgrade... I know the specs on the 2015 look better, but my LBS here in Canada said i may be waiting till september for those models... Didn't want to wait so i bought the 2014 camber comp for $2300 CAD. Seems like a good deal.. Opinions?

    I changed my front brake from formula to XT. I changed the whole system including the rotor. I think the total was about $230 for the front.

    2014 Camber Comp is awesome. Can't go wrong there even for 2300.

    XT brakes are on sale now for killer prices. Look around man. Now is the time.

    Some say the Zee brakes are the best because they weigh and cost same as XT but they can break much better than an XT set.

    Gentlemen! Greetings!

    Just joined the club! Bought a used 2012 camber comp 29er for $1300 with saint pedals. Loving the bike! Only one trail ride on it so far, but I am extremely impressed with the bike. This bike has a lot of firsts for me - disc brakes, 29" wheels, air suspension, full suspension - and I'm having so much fun with it. Will post up some pics when I get some decent ones!

    Congrats.

    I've kicking around the idea of picking a pair of those Saint pedals to use during the winter and unclipping for a while.

    I picked up my new 2015 Camber Carbon Expert EVO last night and took it out for the first time this morning. I've been wanting this bike for the last year and after the first ride it definitely didn't disappoint. The bike is light and fast and can really hold it's line. When the trail got rough the Pike made it smooth and easy to ride. I found myself picking more aggressive lines than usual and wanting more. This bike is way beyond my skill level, but what a blast to ride!

    I've been riding my 2014 Camber Comp Carbon for over a month now and I'm very happy with it. My riding buddy has borrowed it a few times and is thinking it's time he moves up from his twenty year old 26" Trek.

    Does anyone have a camber running 2x10 and if so what parts are you using in the drive train?
    My LBS says its only made on 3x kits and thsts why my new 2x drags the chain on the front derailure.

    Bulls#!+! If it works as a 3x it will work with 2x.

    How is your chain dragging? On the bottom of the FD when in a small/small gear combo? If so, that is pretty normal. Do not use the smaller cogs with the small ring.

    Yes its dragging with the new smaller rings set on front cranksrt 22/36. Seems like the issue is because the frame mount is high but the 2x FD derailure cage isnt long or low enough.

    Hey, guys! Any of you increased travel of your forks on non-evo cambers? If so, how are the ride characteristics? Did you upgrade the fork, or just extend the travel on the stock fork?
    Thanks!

    I upgraded my stock camber fork to a rock shock revelation 120 - 150 dual mode. But I think the limit should probably be 140 millimeter for the cambers Geo... I think 130mm would be the sweet spot as 120mm can seem to short and +140mm raises the HT too much and negatively affects the balance on climbs and in fast tight turns leading to more washouts and less control.
    But on descents I never regret more fork travel so indeed +140 is sweet on the downs.
    That's why I went with my dual mode fork to get the best of both worlds with a switch.

    Hi fellow Camberers!

    Had my Camber (2013) since November last year. Changed out the OEM wheels for some Arch EX's, with Hope pro 2 hubs, and DT swiss spokes. I'm 6ft2”, 260 lbs (220 KGS), the stock Alex rims weren't enjoying life...Much much better! Stiffer, more responsive, and gives me more confidence!

    Next I'm looking to upgrade the OEM forks for a more ridgid set up.

    Going to be picking your guys brains....

    Well that's me.

    I was thinking the same. What options are around in a 130mm travel fork? It seems like an odd duck in the suspension range. Could the fox float that's on there bow be legged out to get to 130mm?

    The pike is adjustable too so if you get a 140mm you can lower it to 130. But I am not sure what the procedure is like.
