    Yeah, I've got Charger Pros. I need some extra parts, but I could do it. I wonder if it's worth it.

    "I have a chance to buy a 2012 Camber Comp 26" (new) for a great price. Under $1k dollars. 5'8" and old. worth it? Or should I just get the 29er.
    I live in Virginia where the trails for the most part are rocks and roots."

    After watching the trails fill up with 29ers and listening to riders talk about how much they love the ride of a 29er I test rode then purchased a 2012 Camber Carbon Comp 29. My vote would be the 29er as you will see immediate improvement riding in rocks and roots. Under $1K is a great price but 29er is the way to go.

    Fine with the RS forks as long as it is not a brain fork. The brain forks have a specific sized damper that will be damaged if the travel spacer is removed.

    On a full suspension the general consensus is yeah. Stiffens up the two sides of the swing arm. Is it worth it for you depends on one question... Do you have flex and feel it?

    On mine I would..

    1. Tubeless
    2. 1x10 conversion
    3. Ergon Grips

    Right off the bat. Besides that only thing id want out would be the Avid brakes gone.

    Planning on Tubless
    Have Ergon Grips and love them

    What's the advantage of going 1X10 except weight?

    Eh weight is negligible. The e13 guide weighs simarly to a deraiuller. Only weight you lose is from the granny gear and left shifter which isn't much. For me it's more a matter of simplicity and needs. I don't need or ever use a granny gear on my trails so I don't need it. And it's a $50 investment to ditch it so i could live with that. You'll also never drop a chain. If your trails call for a granny gear having a 1x10 can also force you to become stronger, you have no choice but to use your main ring lol

    For me the first port of call is always contact points so pedals, grips, saddle.

    After that tyres or bar/stem combo so fine tune what feel right for you.

    Any news on the this?
    Personally i would go with what suits you, your riding style and your local terrain. I did and went for one of the last 26er Camber's.
    Can you try and get a test ride to see what works for you?

    ps. sorry I know I quoted wrong author for this one - but the question remains the same!

    Did they take the standard wheels in on trade? I would love to upgrade my wheels when I purchase but not up for the $1000+ upgrade unless I can get something for the stock wheels.

    Here's mine that I picked up about a month ago. Love this CAMBER! I got it for $1600. It was marked down from $2100.00 It's a 2012 Camber Comp and tips the scales at 31.5 lbs. I do plan on putting it on a DIET! Next go around will be a StumpyCarbon!

    The large weighs 28 lbs 5 ounces. I can imagine the XL only weighs a couple ounces more

    The 2013 aluminum models weigh a good bit less than the 2012. Different swing arm design and M5 alloy.

    I don't have a real bike scale, but my bathroom scale says the 2013 XL Comp weighs in right at 31. So give or take some due to bathroom scale fail.

    My 2012 Alloy framed Camber Comp is making a very loud creaking noise from the cranks/bottom bracket. I can't locate it as yet. Any ideas or others who have had this issue? Thanks in advance.

    I may be off base here but have u tried pedaling with you butt up and out of the saddle.... I had the same issue on a HT and thought it was my crank or BB. It was my saddle and seat post.. Just an idea to check out.
