2015 Camber EVO 29 Customized

Before taking it out the bike needed some tweaks... Expanding the cassette to 42t. Blackspire makes an excellent expander cog compatible with both Shimano and SRAM... The RaceFace 1x setup replaced the original 2x. 30t is perfect for this 29er in my opinion... There´s no excuse for not having stealth routing for dropper post in 2015. This required bypassing the original Specialized setup. The length of the seat post makes it impossible for a direct connection but I solved this routing first down the seat tube and then back up to avoid a sharp 90o cable angle... The Pike RCT3 is the biggest upgrade. Lowering the travel from 150 to 120mm was key to keeping the geometry and performance of the bike intact. 51mm offset makes it very sharp. running it with 4 spacers. The Pike is heavier than the original Reba but worth it. Very smooth... XT brakes and X9 rear shifter instead of the original Deore/X7 setup... The bike needed a shorter stem. This Funn 45mm allowed me to keep the bar low as it has a 30mm height and 0 rise. The original came with a flat relatively narrow bar. I prefer a riser 780 bar... The winter rear fender is actually a 26" but it profiles theatre perfectly. The specialized tubeless tires have a good tread pattern but too thin walls in my opinion. I would prefer Maxxis. Let´s wear these out first though...
