I am a short rider, and so far have been loving the camber. Although my camber have been built from the frame up with aftermarket parts (deore xt, fox fork, hope+ztr wheelset) the frame geometry is perfect for my short arms and legs. I use this for xc riding, and at just over 12kg, is just the right balance between efficiency and comfort.
I absolutely love the fox triad 2 propedal rear shox that came with the frameset. I like it better than the fox float ctd on the stumpjumper, especially on long climbs.
Ive ridden the BMC SF, but the riding position is a bit too aggressive for me. If I was racing, Id get the BMC.. But for my long xc rides, Id take the camber.
