Norbs rode the Demo to a good finish (should have been better) at Rampage on the Demo

Demo 8 gives absolute confidence until next sponsor pays up and that new rig will give absolute confidence. :rolleyes:
(Oct 31, 2012 at 12:02)
well yeah they all make pretty solid bikes, haha.
(Oct 31, 2012 at 12:12)
: "Demo 8 gives absolute confidence until next sponsor pays up and that new rig will give absolute confidence. :rolleyes:" Clearly you don't know the relationship between Claw and Specialized. Seeing as he's been on their product FOR 10 YEARS! With no plans of leaving them anytime soon.
(Oct 31, 2012 at 14:00)
Why would he leave them? You just proved genericmk's point. He's gotta a good gig rolling! Just because he's got a freaking awesome setup doesn't mean the bike sucks. It's a sweet bike, and he's got a sweet gig. Easy as that.

: The way you have worded your comment gives the impression that you are being rude about Darren and suggesting he is only riding with Specialised for money. All that video was was an advert and it makes sense for Specialised to have a famous rider doing the advert rather than a random rider. Would you not agree?
(Nov 1, 2012 at 18:08)
Good thing you spelled Specialized right......
(Nov 2, 2012 at 20:03)
The prop givers have no consistency.
(Oct 31, 2012 at 11:09)
Another terrible scripted claw voice over commercial. Show us some RAW footage, not another add! This aint the NFL!
(Oct 31, 2012 at 13:26)
nah dude deep words from the claw haha
(Oct 31, 2012 at 14:41)
(Oct 31, 2012 at 15:25)
Kinda makes sense... -_-
(Oct 31, 2012 at 10:22)
Demo 8 gives you wings
(Oct 31, 2012 at 10:47)
Well that was less than inspiring...
(Oct 31, 2012 at 14:00)
Give the BIG RED S a break..... afterall it is the Claw. Dudes made a living out of riding his bike and Specialized has been key in that regard. Cool stuff says I.
(Oct 31, 2012 at 17:29)
For a second i let myself forget about all I know about the demo and dh bikes in general and watched this video from a consumer's standpoint seeing that it is an ad. All I got out of it is that the demo is great for riding down big mountain terrain that hasn't been riden before... Im moving on to look at other bikes because Im not going to be riding big mountain in china any time soon. I know the demo is one of the sickest and fastest dh bikes but this commercial is unrelatable to the average consumer and probably won't be that effective. Just my 2 cents.
(Oct 31, 2012 at 18:43)
yeah but if it can handle THAT, it can surely handle your backyard stunts (point theyre trying to make)
(Oct 31, 2012 at 13:24)
God, that was terrible. Talk about Mountain Bike Cliches 101.
(Oct 31, 2012 at 21:22)
Cool ad I guess. If I were shredding big lines in China/Nepal/middle-of-nowhere-Utah I'd be more worried about getting adequate medical attention rather than having pivot bearings wear out...
(Oct 31, 2012 at 12:28)
Claw is badass, specialized makes cool bikes, so why make a video that no one can relate to? WTTE was cool but I still love riding trails, not bike skiing down a sandy mountain
(Oct 31, 2012 at 14:55)
Demo vs. Status on Rampage -> did anyone consider this should be a marketing from S.? Well, having 2 toys for 1 purpose; why not to display both to millions of kids? Just an idea...
(Oct 31, 2012 at 10:30)
Anyone know why he ran the Status at Rampage? Only thing I could think of was pictures I've seen of the Demo bottomed out show that the BB almost hits the ground 'cause it's so low, might be an issue at Rampage?
(Oct 31, 2012 at 10:51)
shorter chainstay for spinning, same reason martin rode one
(Oct 31, 2012 at 11:23)
Steeper head angle, higher bb, similar length chainstays, better angles for freeride basically
(Oct 31, 2012 at 23:11)
I dont understand why people keep saying the Status has shorter chain stays- thats totally false, demo has shorter chainstays than the status.
(Nov 1, 2012 at 8:23)
Soderstrom said himself that the reason he chose the status was shorter chainstays and a higher BB which would make it easier to trick
(Nov 1, 2012 at 9:41)
Demo: 421mm chainstays
status: 426mm chainstays
from the catalogue ^. the chainstays are not shorter on the status! the status does have I think a 2mm higher BB so I will give you that though!
(Nov 1, 2012 at 9:43)
According to Dirt magazine, the demo has the shortest chainstays of any dh bike, not sure if it still does though as that was a while back
(Oct 31, 2012 at 23:02)
I feel like Berrecloth is always super dramatic. I talked to him on Thursday at Rampage and was surprised that he actually talked like he did in Where The Trail Ends in person!
(Oct 31, 2012 at 10:53)
A Legend and a legendary bike!
(Nov 1, 2012 at 9:03)
The Claw is a pure legend but lately he is doing too many campaigns focusing on the dramatic and sentimental side of “big mountain”... rather than ripping down the maddest slopes! Nevertheless, Claw equals Demo
(Oct 31, 2012 at 12:59)
Again, too much fu__ing slow mo
(Nov 1, 2012 at 2:07)
oh no man...make me wonder if buying a demo is better than buying a 951 for my first DH bike
(Oct 31, 2012 at 11:30)
BFD, cool bike, cool rider, horrible ad. Nuff said
(Oct 31, 2012 at 14:24)
not that it's really important but i take it he doesn't like shimano rotors ?
(Oct 31, 2012 at 10:21)
status at rampage
(Nov 1, 2012 at 15:33)
I've got the same setup. red, yellow, black demo with a 40 and it rips
(Oct 31, 2012 at 23:35)
Darren reps plastic pedals...
(Nov 5, 2012 at 20:17)
Rollin on a demo 7
(Nov 1, 2012 at 10:01)
That ad was so weak.
(Nov 3, 2012 at 14:12)
I like Sam Hill's add' more
(Oct 31, 2012 at 16:21)
Can I have my MBs back?
(Oct 31, 2012 at 11:08)
Why is the video so short
But he and the bike is cool
(Nov 1, 2012 at 7:26)
Why is there a link in my comment. Yesterday there wasn´t a link when I wrote it. ???

i feel like buying a Specialized, NOT. ill stick with my Giant thank you, who won the Rampage...Sorgy.
(Oct 31, 2012 at 15:26)
Don't take it wrong, but I thought that you ride the bike which suits you or your needs the best... You lick the ice-cream you like, or the TV commercial one? Rampage 4me is about the balls, not about the bikes ;-)
