    I like it aside from the too many gears up front...

    Tweaked the Apex with a different set of wheels and 8 speeds...

    My e-bay and parts bin experiment. I got the frame from ebay and a few other parts. The rest came from the parts bin. It's a bit of a frankenbike. I'm running XO shifters, rear derailleur, and cassette. XTR front mech. and crank. Magura MT8 brakes, Mavic Crossmax wheels, and a Thomson Elite in the cockpit, and a Fox terralogic fork. It rides like a dream.

    This is my first mountain bike in 20 years. I used to ride a Cannondale F700 back in college. You may notice the serfa's tires on there. I put them on as an experiment to see how well it would do for commuting duties. Well, it was ok, LOL. I bought another bike for commuting and I'm putting back on my Kenda Small block tires.

    Just bought this yesterday, brand new and I'm heading out to ride it right now. It's a 2013 Specialized Camber Expert Carbon Evo R29, my first foray into mountain biking. I was always a road guy and I love my Specialized bike. I have a Tarmac SL2 from '06 that I rebuilt with Dura Ace components, custom wheels, etc.

    So once I got my ass handed to me last week in a hill climb by my friend that splits his time between road and mountain biking I decided its time to give this a shot. Wish me luck!

    I'll post more pics once I've spent a little time with her.

    Now running as a double. Also upgraded the derailleur to Ultegra 6600. Happier now with the shifting.

    Swapped out the stem, bars and saddle.


    Changed the handlebars to Kona Handplants. This one just keeps getting better!

    My three off road hardtails. First from left is a 94 Breezer Lightning, next is a 13 Marin Muirwoods, and last is an 06 Norco Charger. They vary from being more road-friendly (Marin) to more off-roady (Breezer.)

    Nice build! Have you put it on the scale yet? My reason for asking is my N+1 will be a fat bike and I would like to keep it below 28lbs.

    Would suggest putting helium in the tires. Hydrogen if you want to go even lighter, and you like to live dangerously.

    @stevemtbr - It is exactly 28 pounds as pictured. I was going for the most capable and versatile Fattie I could build and still keep the weight light. I could be sub 25 pounds with a rigid carbon fork and seatpost, but having a Bluto and Reverb Stealth is worth the extra weight.

    Here are the details if you're interested:
    Borealis Echo frame (medium), Sarma Naran 100mm carbon rims, Hope Fatsno hubs (150mm x 15mm front, 197mm x 12mm Maxle rear), DT Swiss spokes and nipples, Specialized Ground Control 26 x 4.6 (tubeless) tires, Orange Seal tire sealant, Easton EC70 carbon riser bar, RaceFace Turbine stem, ODI grips, SRAM XO1 1x11 drivetrain with Gripshift, RaceFace Next SL Cinch 170mm carbon crank, 28t RaceFace chainring, RockShox Bluto 100mm fork with lockout, RockShox Reverb seatpost, SRAM Guide brakes, Specialized Phenom Expert saddle.
