DEMO vs DEMO - Is Newer Better?
I've 'banged out' enough Whistler laps to know that speed is fun. Picking lines, and boosting off small trail undulations is also fun ;-)

DEMO vs DEMO - Is Newer Better?
I've ridden every style of bike under the sun so don't really consider myself a luddite, but I'm getting a HT frame built for me again because I like the feeling of riding a HT. So the comment in the article is pretty funny..... I like the look of the new Demo, but mainly because it looks fairly normal, and the old one was such a stupid design. As for the one sided seat mast, we got to the moon 40ish years ago, so in the greater scheme of things, this isn't really a mind blowing achievement.

Prototype Shimano Deore XT at Crankworx
Maybe the 'older woman trail rider' wouldn't want to spend ONE MILLION DOLLARS on a few gears?

Mechanic owned Ghost AMR 2955. Updated with the following parts: Raceface Next carbon bar Raceface Turbine 60mm stem Fox RP23 Boost Valve rear shock recently overhauled by SuspensionWerx Shimano Xt clutch rear derailleur Raceface 30t Narrow Wide chain ring. Shimano Zee rear shifter Maxxis HR2 EXO TR front tire (almost new) Specialized Purgatory rear tire Deore brakes but with updated XT rotors (203/160mm) and genuine XT sintered pads FSA cartridge bearing headset - almost new WTB Silverado saddle Carbon bottle cage The rest of the bike is pretty well stock or similar. The bike has been well maintained, including a lower service on the fork recently. The drivetrain still has loads of life. The bike has probably been ridden on average once every three weeks for the last 12 months due to laziness. A review of the bike is below, but it's a great bike for Fromme and Squamish and rolls down stuff you'd think not possible on a bike with only 110/100mm travel. http://www.bikeradar.com/mtb/gear/category/bikes/mountain-bikes/full-suspension/product/review-ghost-amr-2955-13-46832/ Also included is a spare derailleur hanger. I do not use the fork lockout as it's a bit pointless on a 110mm fork, but if I can find it, I'll include it too. Plus the front derailleur and a front shifter if I can find those too. **Update - I have found all of the above but a front shifter and will include those in the price**

Race Face SixC Cinch Crank - Review
Race Face stock the BSA30 tool which you would either buy for yourself (I did when I bought the Turban version of the cranks), or the shop would just order for themselves at the same time as ordering the cranks if they have any sense. As for the 16mm....there's no need to ever touch it unless you just want to check that it's tight. It's the bolt in the middle of it that you should concentrate on ;-)

I agree. I like teh bewbs as much as any man but that was just a bit sad. Not too keen on captive monkeys either.... It obviously appeals to the non-thinking target market though.....
