Anything that tests my riding ability, a good scare is fun.

There's a balance between having forks stiff enough and too stiff. I used to run my suspension incredibly stiff and swore by it but then I realized that there's a lot of downsides to that stiffness like less grip and not absorbing chatter very well. I'm still on pretty stiff forks but at an amount that gives grip and absorbs the bumps well.

Yes you'll see top guys win on most bikes. They do have access to all sorts of data logging equipment and can take that information to tune the suspension to mask certain traits. Gwin also runs very stiff suspension so that would reduce any squat under pedalling. I'd like to hear from Specialized why they designed it in this way, to me it doesn't make sense. Don't get me wrong either, I really wanted a Demo back in 2010/11 when they changed to the newer shape Alu frame. I'm sure most owners won't be dissapointed but I was just trying to say they aren't perfect and have a strange combination of attributes in my books.

Actually the calculations that prove that don't take everything into account and it's possible to prove that yes they can in fact fly by looking at the full picture. The demo will still be a fun bike to ride but it's not winning any prizes in the suspension design department, maybe a lot of people won't notice the blindest bit of difference but it is there.

If we create a company together, I'll arrange for Mel to do the publicity stunt on the bike and it should get us enough funding to make a spin off film called 'Mad heart' I hope I know what I'm doing! It's difficult to know if it will ride properly as it has more rearward travel than any production dh bike but it's a bit of an experiment for me!

This was to show what I'd been working on without giving away any sizes. It better materialize as I've spent a fair bit on tubing, parts and gettting some new tools. I'm a welder fabricator so have the facilities to build it, the only hold up has been getting an operation to implant a defibrillator, so I've been recovering from that for 6 weeks
