 Looks like a mix betwwen a Demo and a SX...
  • + 3
 agreed. the linkage is like the demo but the front triangle is like the sx, super low standover
  • + 7
 How is the front end like an SX other than its hydroformed and made of aluminium!?!

I hate in when people use the words "this bike looks like a..."

It's such a pointless thing to say!!!!!
  • + 2
 I will agree that it looks more like an sx trail. But I'm sure it rides VERY differently.

 Ugliest Boxxer ever! Come on, normal Boxxers looks much better.

 agreeeee

 Poor guy! He has to race on a factory proto Spec in Slovenia on the Wold Cup circuit with... ugly forks. Good job, guys. Keep up those useful comments.
  • + 13
 tis ugly but i dont think he cares what his bike looks like when he gets it for free and gets the best sponsors to get to every race on wc circcuit and it obviously rides amazing
  • + 4
 do you ACTUALLY want it to look better or perform better, gimme a break
  • + 3
 Sorry but that's not a stock bike. Specialized does not put crnk bros pedals, odi grips, e13 guides, B-Lab cranks(truvativ's team stuff), funn bars, titanium/obtanium springs, FR2350 wheels(they put some oem dt Swiss wheels on), on their bikes. There's only a couple stock parts on there.

 i think it will take some time to get the new boxxer into my head as a sexy fork, but i would much rather get it for performance than looks.

 Thats because you're an idiot, see above.

 lol! too true. amazing how peeps instantly try to find bikes it may look slightly like.. when it will likely be oh so different in real life performance and design terms :S
  • + 5
 not liken the new boxxers...the black stantions make it look like a cheap 888
  • + 1
 maybe just the SXT proto with boxxer? doesn't look so much different then this one 3.bp.blogspot.com/_CAXB2T0FEzk/S8dhoBpZ7-I/AAAAAAAADss/4XY092wRQqY/s1600/normal_92119430_1271354554.jpg

 yeqa those froks are ugly i bet they only got black stauntions for now because there black box it adds a bit of mistery. hahah
  • + 3
 That is just amazing! Love it tup
  • + 4
 I just think that the Boxxer with black stantions makes them look so cheap :s
  • + 3
 I think that boxxers are excellent and you are cheap
  • + 1
 the stupid thing is that you cant put any rear shock you want cos its like on the sx,

 Looks like a sick frame! Now for the Monster Green/Black paint scheme and we're set! Razz Looks creamy.

 oh this boxxer prototype is soo rude.. its like a tripple 8, and the stems look disgusting... Big Grin

 i dont really like the looks of the new demo, the old ones have always had that distinctive "demo" look. now its like a combo between the old sx and a demo, and it doesnt look very visually pleasing
  • + 1
 you know what i mean...it looks a little cheap...i bet it performs good though
  • + 2
 looks like an overgrown SX Trail.
  • + 2
 No it doesnt.

I hate in when people use the words "this bike looks like a..."

It's such a pointless thing to say!!!!!
  • + 4
 yes it does you fuckhead
  • + 5
 Apart from the fact that the linkage and the frame tubes and pretty much everything about it looks like a demo.
  • + 11
 Did you just use the words " looks like " ? Wink
  • + 3
 seriously you dont think see anything similar in this bike compared to sx trail then i feel bad for you, you need some help,
  • + 5
 Touche Freeridefever! Variiis - maybe I just have better attention to detail and some engineering knowledge. All the structural parts of the bike, the linkage and the geometry are totally different.
  • + 5
 dude please stop acting like you were super smart professor, engineer whatever. seriously if you were so smart and stuff we wouldnt be having this argument
  • + 2
 It looks like the new demo Proto - because it is.

Its does not look like a SX - Because it isnt.

If you want to have an input, say: " In my opinion they have taken some ideas from the SX and combined them with the Demo." Rather than the pointless "it looks like...."

 People just need to MTFU and admit that there have been so many full suspension bikes now that ever bike is bound to look like another and not go on about shit. What is the point? Every suspension bike has 2 wheels and a shock, they are going to look similar. SHUT UP!
  • + 2
 willsoffe- its the fact that the bike looks like a combo of old and new bits of frames from the same company, thats why everyones commenting. its a notable comparison, not like other useless comaprisons ie "the new glory is basically a new sunday"
  • + 0
 How is "Oh that bike looks like a ....." useful to anyone? Ever?

If it looks like it people will see that. And even if it does. So what?
  • + 2
 its simply an observation and someones opinion, which is the point of writing comments. if you like a pic you say "nice pic". an observation doesnt have to be beneficial to anyone
  • + 0
 You just said that

"its a notable comparison, not like other useless comaprisons ie "the new glory is basically a new sunday".

This implies that saying

"the bike looks like a combo of old and new bits of frames from the same company"

is useful.
  • + 2
 there are notable comparisons and ones like the glory/ sunday example i used above. the useless ones are like saying that konas suck, the "this bike rides like that one" comments, that kind of thing that is usually demeaning a company or a new bike. the notable ones are the ones that do not demean anything or anyone, and are simply observations. if you dont want want poeple to say their opinions, then dont read the comments

 look´s like shit...the frame is an enduro with a demo rear side...and the new boxxer are ugly
