    2017 Carbon Comp Stumpy 29 vs. 2017 Carbon Comp Camber 29

    Yeah I know, there's a lot of these threads, sorry. Things have changed up a bit for 2017 though.
    So, the majority of my riding is fairly smooth trails and a bit of pavement. I will never be attempting insane drops with the bike.
    Things I'm concerned about going with the 2017 Stumpy:
    1. New Yari fork on the Stumpy. Awesome fork, but a member here posted a .5b heavier penalty over the Camber' Revelation. I don't think I need the Yari, to be honest.
    2. Potential slight loss of efficiency over the Camber on smooth, fast trails and pavement (uphill pavement)
    3. Overall weight? I don't know if this concern is valid as nobody's weighed the 17 Stumpy vs the 17 Camber.

    What would you all buy?
    Strictly speaking of the 2017 models, what are some of the other differences that could affect my decision either way?
    Both come with a drop post, but Spez is charging (verified) $200 more ($4,000) for the Stumpy because of the Yari fork (I think).
    Does anybody if the 2017 CC Camber also got a $200 price increase?

    Tough decision - these bikes are very close specs-wise. Unfortunately I have been unable to find a 2016 Carbon Comp 29 Camber to test ride.

    If you don't need the travel I would go with the camber.

    I have a 16 camber comp carbon and it is ****ing amazing.

    Personally, Id go stumpy. The pedaling in firm mode is really, really good, and you may be inspired to ride a bit harder on the more capable bike. More fun.

    Since you won't be going Stumpy how about comparing other bikes in the Camber range.
    Pivot Mach 429 Trail SLX/XT Bicycle Blue
    This would be on a list I'd look at. 27.5+ capable.

    Vote for Camber. I'm riding CCC 2016, excellent bike.

    What comes to prizing. 2016 was 4300 in Finland and my LBS told me yesterday that 2017 CCC is 4000.

    CCC is also available in 2 different setups 2x11 and 1x11. 1x11 is GX/NX and from the pictures on the other thread 2x11 seems to have shimano xt drivetrain. No idea about the rest of the components. Prizing is the same.

    ^^ VERY interesting about the optional 2x11. I thought it was 1x11 only for the '17 CCC. This can make a significant diff for some riders up those LONG hills. My guess is the Stumpy is 1x11 only.

    I ride a lot like you, some road to get to my trails and smooth fast trails.. I loved my 07 (26") stumpy but I recently upgraded and so far I am super in love with my 2017 pro carbon 29er.. lots of people told me the camber is the bike to have in the North Eastern NJ area but the stumpjumper just feels sooo right to me and that extra travel doesn't hurt!

    I have both bikes. Drawback on the '17 Camber is brakes (if they are the base Shimanos). I toasted those doing an XC Ultra, Shimano SLX's fixed that.

    Also, I may be unlucky, but the Revelation on my '17 Camber CC has been awful since day one, and has cost me more than a new Pike in repairs. Ironically, I've run a faultless '17 Yari as a spare, which has been great - but in 150mm. This is also a point, the Camber with a 150 fork works fantatically well, though I find 130mm to be perfect.

    Weight diff is almost none.
