    I have a bit of a dilemma. I picked up a Specialized Camber 2012 model last year on a budget which has been a great bike (if a little large) and its got to the stage where I’d like to upgrade some of the components.

    At the moment it has a very basic RS Recon Gold TK fork and I’d like to upgrade it to something plusher with a 15mm through axle, as my upgraded Fulcrum wheelset comes with the bits to allow this.

    Unfortunately the bike does not have a tapered headset which seems to be the universal standard nowadays, and the only forks I can find anywhere online for a decent price are the 2013 RS Rebas, for around £300.

    I fancied a set of Fox Float 32’s to complement the upgraded rear shock (Fox RP2) but I get the impression that these aren’t made with a traditional straight steerer any more. Could it be time to sell the Camber frame and look at something a little more futureproof?

    Should still be able to get normal tube forks. Might be worth asking mojo directly what they have left

    What sort of fork are you after? You can get straight steerer Revelations still- too long for a Camber but possibly shortenable, not sure.

    I’ve got a set of nearly-new QR Sids set to 120mm to sell… But it depends what you do with the Camber, if you ride it as hard as some do I wouldn’t recommend that option. Or 32s if I’m honest, my Camber came with a set and they were tolerable but not great, they weren’t happy on rougher descents.

    You can get White Bros loops with a straight steerer. They work great for me although I’d prefer a proper lockout instead of the magnetic threshold doodad.

    Thanks for all the info guys.

    Merlin have 10& off all RockShox stuff this weekend so I’ve just bagged a set of 2013 crown lockout Reba RL’s with 15mm thru axle for £270 delivered.

    Can’t really go wrong!

    There’s going to be a Recon Gold TK in the classifieds sometime in March if anyone’s interested……
