I´m 6,1 aka 1,85m and the XL carbon Demo fits perfect! In my opinion you do not necessarily have to follow the trend to extremely long reach values and certainly not if you want to have fun in the bike park. But it should also not be smaller.

With 6'5" it could be really short but if then def. a XL.

My 6'4" buddy finds my XL Demo too small.
You have Mondraker distributors in the US, the Summum has a 500mm reach.
Canyon is even bigger I think.
Even old-school guys appreciate bikes that fit.

I'm 6'3" and find the XL small at times.

Hello, I've just bought a 2015 ( I think ) carbon spealized demo 8 sworks and the rear shock bushings and bolts have ovalized from the previous owner riding it, does anyone have any suggestions on what to do or where I can buy the FSR bolts in Australia
Thanks

Have you contacted your nearest or local Specialized dealer?

Make sure the shock mounts have not ovalised too, I ignored the knocking from the upper eyelet after getting pissed off with the rose bearing wearing out so fast and replacing it so often, big mistake, manged to slightly ovalise/wear out the upper eyelet of the shock in quite a short time.

What's the deal with the square axle on the 2015+ demo 8 carbons? Do I need a special hub?
