    2013 Specialized Camber expert carbon EVO

    Very excited about this new Ride! My first 29er . Picked it up at a LBS for a huge discount . Added a command post and going to order Azonic flats .

    Coming from a Giant trance 3 26" this is a game changer . I was gonna hold out until I demoed a few 650b s but at the price I got for this Ride it was a no brainer, besides I am not to sure of the 27.5 bikes . 26 to 29 is a big difference but going from a 26 to a 27.5 I don't think I would notice that much of a difference .


    Going to my local riding haunt this Monday . It will be a huge confidence factor knowing I can go all day now without being physically drained when riding my all mountain Giant Trance 26er.

    Dude, post some pics! What did you pay for it? And how did you decide on the camber over other fs 29ers?

    Msrp- $5500
    Discount-$3200
    Command post -$150

    I purchased at a LBS action Wheels here in South Jersey , I have a Specialized dealer , Trek dealer and a cannondale dealer with in 20 minutes of where I live. I wanted to purchase a Bike from one of these local dealers . I wanted a great bike at an exceptional value . I don't think I would have bought this at MSRP since my budget was $3K .

    I was told that Specialized has a bunch of this model left overs . My LBS has 2 of them and I bought one. They set me up tubeless for free and gave me a discount on the Command dropper post .

    I think buying a bike from your LBS is the best way especially since they give me free tune ups eventhough I can do most bike repairs myself , I will take advantage of it .

    Wow ! You even got a better deal . Great Job ! Taking mine out today on my local trails . I just ordered the command post seat collar , it has an integrated car stay . Looks better than a wire tie to fasten it to the post . Also getting the specialized flats pedals in Red !

    That is a great deal.
    The Camber is a good longer travel full suspension XC bike.
    Enjoy it.

    Thanks !

    I just weighed my New Ride and it topped out at 26.2 with the command post . Man what a difference from my 32.5 lb Giant trance 26er

    Now I rented a Scott spark 940 , I was disappointed . This Camber is unbelievable ! I don't think I will ride my 26er anymore .

    After learning how to ride this bike and learning about inputs and what it can so , how hard is it to jump back to a 26er for a day! I don't think I wanna even try .

    I'm planning to buy the same bike but they only have it in large, I just confirmed with them. This is really a good deal. Is this the medium size?

    Yes, I purchased the Medium. How tall are you . Large might not be that bad if you swap out the Bar/Stem . I was in between a LG and M . I went with the Medium.

    What Bike shop has the LG ? My specialized dealer still has the LG left and do get alot of inquiry's about it. Still sitting there as of today as I went by to get my Roval Carbon front wheel trued in since I tweaked it the other day.
