 head angle, bottom bracket height, axel/wheelbase length all identical, the seat tower maybe 1degre steeper, thats wot im seeing its really just like the original, why change nything thats not broke? my opinion anyways let the neg props begin Salute

 The weight has been shifted down from the seat stay and slightly up from the base of the down tube, centralizing it more. Geo is unchanged, big differences are in the suspension performance. Read the article on the main page.

 Notice how much the shock as changed it's angle from the Demo 9 of circa 04,every change Specialized have made to the basic Demo frame has been gradually going in the same direction
shock angle wise.But this is the most dramatic overall change to the frame i think i've seen.The seatstay & top link are dramatically lower than the previous frame,= Good,a full tube as been ditched from the centre of the frame around the shock mount area,= Good,and the full front triangle is all new and very similar to the SX Trail,=Good.All these changes are going to add to the bikes already legendary performance,lower centre of gravity,lower weight
and a better suspension set up.It could be the lightest DH rig on the elite circuit by lb's.
Real forward thinking changes,and the actual bike loox as fast as mice,even when it's stood still.
