 that era of demo is still one of the sexiest dh bikes to ever exist.

 Pretty much every demo so far has been a really good looking bike. Same goes for the enduro.

 @Darwin66: New Demo is a little ugly,like to short and tall (it looks like that,not saying it is bad or whatever). New Enduro looks much better than the Demo for being almost the same,more pleasant to the eye.
The oldest models of Demo&Enduro are pretty good looking bikes even today. That kid rides a full dream machine for that period.

 Buncha cool bikes but what's not to love about Tom's killer vibe & the kiwi accent. The dude's always on a high and its contagious. Those riders are effin' lovin' it there. Now how bout some video of Tom shredding Big White up on a hardtail (or anything actually).

 How much naught could a Dreadnought dread if a Dreadnought could dread naught? It's graphed under your crotch in case you forget. 'Talk me through some of these stickers'

 @ceecee: Shouldn't that be "...if a Dreadnought could nought dread?" Inquiring minds here ya know...

 I had an Ellsworth Moment. Bought it when I was stationed briefly in Pensacola and wanted a cheap bike to bash around. Loved that bike, even found a cool DH track to ride in Birmingham AL. Found an old 66 and a Vivid coil for it. I miss it!

 I remember when that Demo in a limited run was momentarily the only way to get Black stanchions and the world was losing it that they could get a black box looking demo set up like the legends were racing on
