Mountain Bike Monday - SPECIALIZED CAMBER 29

Today we are going to discuss the Specialized Camber 29.  Even though we have some crappy weather for a couple of days, the sun will be returning shortly, the trails will be drying out, and you can use the Camber 29 for some great riding at Hunter's Creek, Sprague Brook, Ellicotville, or any other location that you want to hit on a solid Full Suspension Mountain Bike.

Let's see what Specialized has to say:

Designed to get out and explore, the Camber is a classic well rounded trail bike every rider will enjoy. With a custom RockShox Monarch RL shock with AUTOSAG, Tektro Draco 2 hydraulic disc brakes, and Shimano 9-speed drivetrain, the Camber 29 create a lightweight full suspension bike that is comfortable on any trail.

  • New M5 alloy FSR frame with 29er-specific geometry has 110mm of travel, 142+ dropouts, an all new concentric sealed cartridge shock link and features internal cable routing for the Command Post BlackLite to create a lightweight and responsive trail weapon
  • RockShox Monarch RL air shock with Specialzied's proprietary AUTOSAG smooths the trail and is simple and accurate to set up
  • Responsive RockShox XC 30 29 coil spring fork with 100mm of travel uses externally adjustable rebound, Turn Key damping, and lockout for fine-tuned bump performance
  • Specialized Hi Lo disc hub has a higher flange on the disc side, which stiffens the 29er wheel in this high-stress area. Combined with 142+ spacing, OS28 end caps, and sealed cartridge bearings, this wheelset punches well above its weight
  • The 2.3" Ground Control tire has a fast rolling and versatile tread for premium traction on technical trails
  • The 700mm-wide Specialized XC Mini Riser handlebar is built to control rough trail riding
  • All-new Sip Grip, a lock-on, Aramid infused, half-waffle MTB grip boosts durability, comfort and control
  • Tektro Draco 2 hydraulic disc brakes/levers with Light Wave rotors create increased control and superior stopping power for more confident descents
  • The 9-speed Shimano Shadow rear derailleur shifts super crisp and has increased clearance from trail obstacles
  • Specialized Body Geometry Riva features patented BG design for increased blood flow to sensitive areas
