    " SUPER CAMBER EVOLUTION " I had a 2014 camber. 110 mm travel, 70 head angle. Only the frame left. I put evo link in so 120mm rear. A 140mm fork up front. 67.8 head angle now. I now have a "super camber" as you say. I think climbs better than a standard 130mm bike and descends better than a standard 130mm bike. My head angle is more slack than a 2015 non evo stump jumper with less pedal bob than stumpy. I am an idiot nut job myself.

    As far as chain/chainstay clearance goes, just look at the profile views of the 29er and 650B on the Specialized website. The 29er has a different DS chainstay that drops down behind the chainring providing much more clearance with the chain.

    Do the math.

    Finally picked up my '17 Camber Expert Carbon 29 yesterday. I had store credit at my LBS so I ordered it to hopefully resell it to recoup some money. Well I saw the bike in person for the first time and the thought of selling it went out the window. All black carbon with the black Fox 34 fork is just mean looking. Bikes I had in the past were Stumpjumper FSR Comp and Ibis Mojo SLR. This is my first 29er and for some reason it felt more plush during my test ride compared to my previous bikes.

    so, specialized is using these roval 29-30 mm internal rims on most of its bikes, including its plus bikes the 6fattie. so the rim will accommodate up to a 3 inch wide tire.

    the bike itself is advertised to handle up to a 2.6. there is SOO much clearance, i bet 2.8 is possible, but its very risky. the documentation will tell you 2.6. so if you want to be safe, do that.

    for example, this guy who put a 2.8 on the stock roval rims with a non plus, non boost fork just fine. you can see, there is literally zero tire clearance left. risky but probably possible. 2.6 on the back.


    Industry Bike Check: Sebastian Maag's Specialized Enduro EVO | ENDURO Mountainbike Magazine

    Sebastianís bike has one major show-stopping change: the tires. For the front heís gone for a chunky 2.8″ Specialized Butcher with its sturdy grid tread providing masses of traction, and the less aggressive Slaughter (with a width of 2.6″) for comfort and minimal rolling resistance at the rear. As neither frame nor forks feature the new Boost standard, there is barely any tire clearance to speak of.

    Has anybody upgraded to the xo1 cassette on the 17s? I bought the xg-1195 10-42t cassette but not sure which driver body I need.

    Can anyone help me? I'm looking to get a camber 650b (base model) and I noticed that the 29'er version, which is the same price as the 650b, has a 2x drivetrain instead of the 1x drivetrain on the 650b. Do you know why that is?

    Plus Size Tires

    I'm about to pick up a 2017 Camber Comp 29er and was wondering if anyone knows of any tires in the 29 x 2.6 size? Most everything I see online is 2.3 but I want to go a little wider if I can.

    I suspect it's because they went to a boost rear end on the 650b version - a lot of boost bikes can't fit a front derailleur. The 29er is still 142mm. Not sure what the reasoning behind that was - you'd expect to see boost on the 29er first - but that's the way they did it.

    Nobby Nic is - afaik - the only tire sold in 29x2.6" atm, but I doubt you'd be able to fit a 2.6" tire in the back on the Camber 29. It's not boost and there's not all that much clearance. WTB makes a 2.5" Breakout, but again, not sure that'll fit. Keep in mind, the 29x2.3" Ground Control that comes on the bike is a pretty undersized tire. Never measured it, but it's noticeably smaller than the 2.35 Ikon/2.4 Ardent I have on my bike right now.

    Does anyone know if the 2016 Camber 29 base model freehub driver will fit a Shimano or SRAM 11 speed cassette? I recall reading that it will fit shimano but I can't find where I read it.

    The spec sheet says "Specialized, Hi Lo disc, 4x sealed cartridge bearings, 12mm thru-axle, 28H"

    It will fit any Shimano 11-speed mountain cassette, as well as the SRAM PG-1130 (11-42). SRAM XG cassettes will not fit.

    Has anyone experienced a creaking sound while peddling while seated? i have the 2016 camber comp carbon 650b and thats what i am experiencing. Sounds like its coming from the linkage or BB.

    Also, has anyone experienced brake pad rattle with the stock Shimano Deore BR-M506 front brake?
