    Specialized Camber: Expert Carbon or Expert Carbon EVO?

    So, I'm looking to get a new bike? Currently ride an original Santa Cruz Blur. I want to have one bike only, I ride trails in Northern Utah. I wnat the bike to climb well because most of my ride time is spent climbing rather than descending. So which on the Specialized Camber, Expert Carbon or Expert Evo Carbon. I can't find a 2014 Evo so would need to wait for a 2015. But have a chance at a 2014 non-Evo version at a reduced price. I also need to think about a one time fall event riding the White Rim in a day on this bike... Comments?

    I have a 2014 Evo Carbon, and think you should wait for the 2015. The Normal Camber geo is great, but IMO the EVO might be my favorite all round bike ever. The Pike is so stiff and smooth, and the extra degree of slack + lower BB makes a huge difference on the downs, but still climbs pretty damn well to me. I can clean stuff I can't clean on my other bikes. Was just down in Park City and the EVO was unbelievable.

    btw Boise is a climbers dream town, but I still would never trade the downhill capability of this bike for a possibly slightly better climber.

    Here's a good review-
    Brakes need to go. Maybe 2015 will have a change.
