2012 Specialized Demo 8.

January 7, 2012

We begin our first post of the new year with our recent build of this 2012 Specialized Demo 8 frame. You guys would definitely be familiar with the Demo 8 from its success in the UCI DH World Cups/World Championships. This isn’t just any other Demo though, it features a custom Troy Lee Designs colourway, with only a very limited 250 of these frames produced worldwide.

The Demo comes with a Cane Creek Double Barrel shock that had been factory tuned for the frame.

We reworked the RockShox Boxxer World Cup Keronite fork to match the Cane Creek shock in the rear. The original stanchions were also swapped with Fast Suspension’s hardened-anodised/teflon-coated ones. Bolted on to the Boxxer is Hope Direct Mount Stem.

The Shimano Saint shifter, rear derailleur, and brakes were chosen for their reliability. Not to mention the Atomlab Pimplites that are laced to Hope Pro 2 hubs.

The owner spared no expense for this build, and only the best parts were chosen. Now that he has collected his bike, we are pretty sure that he can’t wait to get some serious DH riding done with it!
