Adam Digby's Specialized Demo 8

Hanging in my dorm room, I don't have a proper camera so I used my computer. This bike is ready for Collegiate Nationals (after a twist to the seat of course)!

Additional Info This thing is awesome, it turns better than my Chumba F5 and it's lighter. It doesn't pedal that well and the front end is too low, requiring lots of spacers, but after I adjusted it to my height, the thing likes to get light and bouncy on the trail. My complaints are that it doesn't come with a downtube protector and it's chainstays are too short on the Large frame, you tend to sit behind the rear wheel when you are 6'4.5".
