The Camber is now modernized with wheel sizes, better geometry, wide wheels and the SWAT box. We love the Stumpjumper 6Fattie featured HERE. The new Stumpjumpers are also quite impressive featured HERE.

No doubt, these bikes are expensive with the top end bike at $9800 and $7300 for the frame/fork/wheels package. But if you know how to play the spec game like us, look for the lowest priced carbon frame and check out the components to see if they suit your fancy and if you can upgrade a couple pieces later to optimize the bike to your needs.
To that end, we found this gem: Camber FSR Comp Carbon 29: $3800. It’s not ridiculously expensive. It doesn’t have the Brain rear shock nor the RS-1. So it’s a much more versatile and descent capable machine in our opinion.
It has a carbon frame with the SWAT door and an alloy rear end. The carbon is not as light as the S-Works model but it should satisfy most blind tests. Heck, the SWAT door adds a couple hundred grams anyway so absolute lowest weight shouldn’t be the priority anyway.
This build has the SRAM GX group and although we haven’t tested it yet, all indications are it should perform just as good as XX1 and it may last a little longer too due to all steel cassette construction. The only downside is it’s a few hundred grams heavier.
Here’s the rest of the build:
