Big sine waves

I sold my DH bike before the babies came, and I’ve regretted that decision since before I dropped the box at FedEx. I love riding all bikes, but I miss the absolute impunity that comes with a downhill bike. Not to mention the big sine waves.

Well friends, the game is back on.

Behold the beast! 2012 Specialized Demo 8 II. Pretty much the most proven and dialed production downhill bike ever. I’m going to start right out of the box, but I will likely shift to Shimano and Fox.

My 2012 Demo 8 II was built by The Fix Bike Shop in Boulder, CO. Thanks to Steve Schelp. Super pro.

When I imagine myself riding my new Demo 8, it looks like this (except the music is Neil Diamond):

Big sine waves!

Stay tuned as I learn how to ride this beast.


Know more. Have more fun!

    Lee – I guess it was yours I saw at The Fix yesterday when I was picking mine (size large of course)…
    Makes perfect living room decoration right now – but not for long 🙂

    Know the feeling. I sold my demo 8 4 years ago. One day I too will add the dh back into my collection:)

    Just got my first DH bike this year … a Santa Cruz. MAN that’s an adjustment. Keeping her nose down takes some work. Really have to dive hard into the corners. On the up side it just swallows terrain my trail bike would gag on. It’s like cruising a Cadillac down main street it’s so PLUSH. Marzocchi 888 is unbeatable. Fox 40 isn’t even in the game for 2012. Have to wait and see what 2013 brings.
