    Coming from a large sized 26 inch 13 year old bike to the correct size modern 29er, I can say that this thing is HUGE and I feel SO high on the seat. I lowered it just a bit to feel more stable feeling while I get use to riding a bike that actually FITS. FWIW, the new XO Gripshift is REALLY nice.

    I've lowered mine a bit as well. Our trails tend to be twisty, rocky, and rooty!

    Finely got my 29er Camber Carbon Evo to the 1 x 10 it should have come with in the first place. I thought all EVO's had one front ring? We put a Raceface 32 tooth SS ring on the front with an MRP S3/E-Mount 32-40T (Black) chain guide. It was a chore to get the chainguide in place since it is so far away from the seat tube. Anyway, after several hours of trial and error and several shims the LBS got it done. Went out on a 20 plus mile ride yesterday and it performed flawlessly. It is in there solid.

    Neat colours, quite unlike anything you'd find in north america.

    Hello.

    I'm wondering if anyone here knows the weight of the wheelset that's on the 2012 Camber Comp 29.

    Specifically, the Roval 29 Alloy Disc rims, with Specialized Hi Lo Disc hubs.

    Why can't I weigh by own wheels, you ask? To that I say: mind your own business!

    My 2012 Camber 29

    I think this bike is pretty close to done for me. The only things left are the seatpost, fork and shock. I removed the spacer in the fork, and now we're up to 120mm travel in front.

    It's a medium, and the weight is 29lb 14 oz. I think that's probably about where it's gonna stay, and I'm cool with that.







    Sun Ringle Charger Pro 29 wheelset
    Maxxis Ardent 2.2 LUST/Schwalbe Nobby Nic 2.25 (tubeless)
    Race Face Turbine 3/4 riser bar (725mm)
    Easton Havoc 65mm stem
    Odi Rogues (best thing!)
    WTB Pure V saddle
    XT pedals
    XT cassette
    SLX shifters
    SLX crankset (2x9)
    SLX medium cage rear derailleur (wrecked the XT)
    SLX M675 brakes (couldn't get the Avids to shut up, and SRAM wouldn't help)

    All things considered, I wish I'd bought the Camber Comp model for the 10 speed, and the tapered HT. I didn't know the difference then, and replaced the drivetrain parts one at a time, not intending to do a full upgrade, but here we are.

    It's a good bike, and there are some days when it's perfect. There are other rougher places where I wish it was more stiff and had more travel, but that's not the bike it is. If I was to do it all over, I'd have gone more all mountain, but I've also had a hell of a lot of fun with this bike, and it'll do me for at least another year.

    My brother has a medium 2013 camber carbon and I have a large 2012 camber carbon. Neither bike has been ridden yet. He is 25 lbs heavier than me. I am 185lbs. We are thinking of swapping rotors and brackets, so he has the 200 180 combo, and I get his 180 160 combo. I am thinking this right sizes things for us. Any reason not to do this?

    Definitely can't go wrong with the carbon, but with the changes to the aluminum models this year, they are a heck of a bargain... not that I am biased or anything...

    We prefer the carbon feel. But from price to weight standpoint, a 2013 camber comp 29 with some different wheels would be lighter. Damn snowy here in Edmonton though. Rode my old super V yesterday.

    That is why I went with the aluminum... I liked the carbon better by a small margin, but I felt that the $1K saved would go further on making the aluminum a better option for me. Considering the level of specs are almost identical between the 2, I plan on spending the extra money on shifters (done), brakes, wheels and then eventually replacing the fork if the Reba lets me down. Of course the cost difference is made less if you are a "Shimano guy" since the drivetrain of the carbon is Shimano... I am a Gripshifting fool, so the SRAM of the aluminum made the switch to GS pretty cheap.

    The RS Monarch will take an entirely different pressure to feel the same as the Fox too. I had the Fox at 290-295 (I am not a small potato) to get the same feel as the RS at 260-265. And... since I am a bit of a bigger rider, the auto-sag left me wanting a bit as it would set the shock at 250 or so (estimating based on air loss connecting the pump), but the bike felt too soft for me (that may change as I have only ever ridden hard tails up to this point).

    That all being said.... if you can get your hands on a 2012 Camber Carbon, it may be a different story. The components are different and the Fox fork is pretty nice and it has better brakes than the 2013.

    The reasons you mentioned, the all Fox suspension and brakes are why I went 2012. My brother hemmed and hawed and missed a 2012. He bought a 2013.
    I would prefer the 2013 shimano shifters and rear derailleur. Both of ours are carbon comps.

    Just weighed my 2012 lareg size camber carbon comp. 29.2 lbs with wellgo mg1 pedals.

    Depends on your goals. I would probably ride it till something broke, or you noticed something really had to change, like tires or fork or shock.

    i bought mavic crossmax st 29 wheels 2 weeks ago they sit in the closet waiting for a bike.
    im thinking the 2013 camber comp or comp carbon

    im thinking that the fox rear shock is a better option im coming from a hardtail so i know nothing about rear suspension i weight 245lbs
    would finish off the bike off with carbon bar, lightweight stem and seatpost

    i live in new england and feel that coming off of a hardtail that the 110mm travel would be the right setup for me

    your thoughts?

    I have a question you say and I've heard others make similar comments about the feel of carbon?
    I'm sure it's not your hand touching the frame, is there any way to explain how riding a carbon frame is Diffrent than an aluminum frame?

    Thanks
