    what year specialized camber expert evo did I buy? Thinking 2015

    Just picked up a new bike for my gf but I'm a little confused as to what year/version of the specialized camber expert evo it is. it's orange and I think it's a 2015 but I'm not positive. Searching for 2014 turns up a green one. I'm wondering because I swear I read the 2014 had 110mm of rear travel while the 2015 has 120mm. It's strange because I think the 2 have the exact same shock. Shock dimension is 7.75x2.00. I'm really hoping it's 120mm travel in the rear. Also I'm planning on increasing the front pike to 140mm and putting the new debon air spring in there, any thoughts on that? A review I read suggested that would be a good idea. I included a pic to help, it has a carbon fiber frame with aluminum rear and has orange coloring with black. Seller thought it was 2015 but had a manual that said 2014 so I'm really confused.

    According to nsmb, the change to 120mm happened for the 2014 model year:

    As far as colours go, once upon a time Specialized used to do low runs of staff/demo bikes that were different from their full retail bikes, so you can't rely on colour alone. If it was originally purchased by a shop employee through the staff program, all bets are off.

    I never ended up owning one, but a test ride of the Camber EVO sometime around 2014 convinced me that 29ers could do more than just XC racing. It was the first 29er I would say I actually wanted. Cool bike!

    Thanks, my biggest question was if it was 120mm in the rear which I am happy it is. I wonder if I call specialized they can look up the serial #
