Looks good! Let us know after you get a couple rides on it

Had a week in whistler on them and they feel great. Super plush and stiff

Good to hear! Whistler is one of the best places to test suspension.

Any chance of blowing the pictures up I'm struggling to see them.

Being facetious, I'm guessing?

They are large pictures but PB scaled them perfectly on my screen......

It's still brand new and until 2015 the geometry and parts list remained the same only difference was paint jobs

Got another quick question for you bud have you had time on a session I've got this years glory at the moment but I've never really loved it so was looking to change to either a demo or session

Never ridden a session but ive sat on one before, I like how the demo feels more

I'm 6 ft 240 lbs and I like my med demo
Feels just right.
Comes down to preference really. You should go seriously out of. Your way to sit in them and see how they feel for you.

I agree, find someone or some place that has one so you can sit on it before you buy.

When I first saw the Demo I ended up buying at the shop, I thought it was a small. The thing was basically smaller than my SX Trail, but had a dual crown and 8" of travel! How does that work?! Smile I later realized it was a medium, and I wouldn't want anything else. It's perfectly flickable and keeps that compact bike feel. I'm just a hair under 6ft, for reference.

Hi All!

Any tips to check the actual sag on my Demo 8's rear shock? It's a bit tricky on the Demos, compared to other bikes.
And another question. What spring rate do you recommend for a 75 kg rider? Actually I have a 450x3.25 on my Van Rc. Just curious about what the others ride with same weight as mine.
Cheers
