S-works replica My arse, there's no such thing. Thats an Ali bike painted and stickered up all S works were carbon.
but for £550 it's cheap. although you'll probably need to spend out on suspension service, frame pivots at the least. so £300 or so.

The Carbon Demo was first introduced mid 2012 for the 2013 line up. There has never been an Aluminium S-Works demo.

There's nothing to be confused about, its a repaint/sticker job.

Mine is unpainted carbon and has a 135 rear end. I scoured the internet and could not find another of the same color scheme.

The serial number is on a sticker and I sent that to Specialized. They responded with this...


After a few more days of searching I found only one more...

I have Van RC on my demo, but the rebound knob toches the yoke.. I am planning on buying RC4, if the rebound knob hugs the yoke with this shock(the owner said its from demo 8 and there wont be no issues) can I remove the stupid knob and dial the rebound with an allen key or something? If yes, how do I remove the mfer?

EDIT: In addition, I tried to put Fox 40s on the frame and the bottom crown was hitting the frame.. Sooo I left the bike in the bikeshop so they can make a custom fork crown race...

Its complete 3 After changing the rod and making custom crown race now I can install Odi lock-on bumpers and the issue with the crown hitting the frame will be resolved. Pretty excited to shred
