Camber comp carbon 29


Spot on ! :)

A 29er ... never thought I would go there. Not going to be standard issue though as I bought frame only and have added some 120mm Reba RLT rather than the standard Fox 110mm forks as from several comments about the Camber it works well with a slightly longer fork. Will also be migrating all the SRAM XX kit across from the Scalpel and hope to make this into a reasonably lightweight build (under 25lbs).


Your going to need some very light parts to get it under 25lbs the stock s-works is 25+lbs with a dropper post, check this link for real weights of different models, your bike is half way down the page.

I'm not really up to speed on full bounce options. Does the Camber sit somewhere between the Epic and Stumpy FSR in terms of travel, head angles etc?

Regards

Yes the Camber is in between them. It's a more trail orientated bike than the racer Epic having a bit more travel and slacker angles.

From that article the stock bike weighs in at 27lb 14oz then so I need to lose 3lbs, game on ! :)

Thanks to some good buys the weening continues :)

That's pretty light for a stem AND seatpost !

Also have got some Ti axles coming from China to replace the ones in my Wellgo MG1's so should drop a good 200g off.
