Dual suspension, on a mountain bike, really. What would you need dual suspension on a mountain bike for?
These were my last words before my first ride during a trip to Mt Buller for a spot of mountain biking, a trip I would have given my left carbon fork to have been on the Specialized Camber Comp.
One run on the newly constructed trail left me in no uncertain terms as to the necessity of dual suspension.
With some dual suspension bikes you feel as though you need one bike for climbing and another for descending, but the Specialized Camber Comp is a great example of how good a dual suspension mtb can be.
It's seriously pimped out, and for me being a roadie (I can hear the chorus of leg shaving clown, from the mtb seats) I love the ability to adjust the shox, being able to make the suspension on the Specialized Camber Comp a little stiffer for descending and some of the road climbs was ideal.
