Got this in the mail yesterday:
a Tune Schwarzes Stück to get my Camber in racemode instead of my Specialized Command Post.
Today the plan was to get a pair of Specialized S-Works Fast Trak 2,2″ tires for it too but out of stock at the moment. Thought of Renegade 2,3″ but ended with a set of Fast Trak 2″:
Mounted my AX-Lightness Leaf Plus saddle on the seatpost and changed my left MixxMaster brakelever clamp to a carbon one from b-t-p.
Ended with a Camber at 9,8kg 😀
9,8kg and still ways to make it lighter without loosing performance. Weight is without bottle but including the multi tool.
After I ended work I aimed to try it, feel if there was any difference. Pumped the tires to 1,7bar and went out to ride the SCS Breakfast Club route. Was flying in the beginning and the bike felt a lot faster. Dropping 389g on just the tires explain a lot and so dry outside now I got all the grip I need. And with 116/110mm suspension I don’t need the extra height of a big tire.
It was awesome, sure my shape and the weather was better than last time too. Then in the south end of the route it happened again. Same thing as last time! I rode the wrong way, changed way and wrong again, and didn’t find the right one. My flow was gone and my thoughts of a Strava KOM was blown away. It sucked and I just rode on the gravel road back to civilisation and back to my neighbourhood. But remembered meeting a customer at my local food store a while ago who talked about some trails in Majroskogen which is a forest just behind my house.
Tried it a bit and ende with some slickrock riding:
Many small tracks and some better than others. But finding the flow going over rocks and roots was great 🙂 My bike is like I want too and I have sometimes thought about that I maybe should have got an Epic instead but my Camber got it all. It’s fast but fun and playful. A bike to enjoy and to get better together with. Even missing a Liteville 301 this Specialized Camber is the bike of my dreams now. 😀
