THE camber,

Do I need to say anything more? 10,78kg like you see it including the SWAT multitool, about 600g lighter than my last mtb.

Cut the fork a bit and saved a lot. Here without axle but including starnut:

Just set the dampers and go for a ride tomorrow 😀 Really looking forward too it.

Le Peloton #14, and the big thing

First things first. Wednesday and Peloton, was 14 riders on my 14th Peloton and I got dropped first. Sitting a bit low and 38×12 is too easy when the spring is here and people take of their studded tires and getting roadbikes and fast cxbikes. Passed one and had another one sucking my wheel more than half of the way. Great with a guy on your wheel, want to push more. Super breakfast at Le Mond as usual 🙂

The start:

And a last picture on my Cannondale SuperX before I started to strip, clean and sell the parts. Anything you want to buy from it?

Then it was like Christmas at work. Schenker came and delivered a package from Racing Shox Sweden. With big Marzocchi letters on 😀

32mm innerlegs with Espresso coating and 116mm travel. 15mm axle that seems good like Rock Shox. At the moment for remote but will be changed, Less is more and all of that. 😀

Seems really good and great to buy from a company in the same country where you also can get help if needed with parts, service and advices. Great service too. Looking forward to mount it and use it 🙂

But as I’m a weightweenie with a budget weight is always important, here it is with full length steerer tube and 15mm axle:

1644g. The axle is 66g.

My hope is that the quality feels better than DT, works at least as good as a Magura TS8, more plush with Espresso coating than Fox’s Kashima, and better to service than a Rock Shox. Will it handle the pressure?

I can tell you it’s a love at first sight, so much sexier than a Rock Shox SID.

S-Works + RS-1

Will this be the year of Specialized S-works bikes with Rock Shox RS-1 forks? Like this Camber:

Or which fork is the thing for 2015? Is it a Marzocchi 320 LCR Carbon that should be lighter than Rock Shox SID and got the super cool Espresso Coating?

It’s not so common but it seems like Marzocchi developed som good forks again.

What will be your dreamfork for XC/AM 2015?
