2008 Custom Specialized "S-Works" Demo 7 II

Fantastic. This generation of mini-dh/free ride bikes was the best. Demo 7, Session 7, Giant Faith….

Is there is any buzz about the Steven's Pass bike park re-opening this year? Perhaps those "TBD" dates are an indication that it is possible.

Rocky Mountain Instinct OZ edition!

Muy Bueno.

While running a 150mm fork, what ride-9 position do you use? I am thinking of building a very similar bike.

Do you think the 140mm Instinct is progressive enough for a coil?

I'm waiting for some of those rear wheels to turn up in the Buy/Sell section....I am sure they are in tip-top shape after the race.

Soory, late to the game on this one.

I think rider weight is an enormous factor. I am 6'2" 195-200 lbs with riding gear.
Before the volume spacer thing really took off a few years ago, I was airing up a RS Monarch + shocks to 210 to get the appropriate sag on my Nomads and Devinci Spartan. That shock just cannot function long-term with that air pressure. I've learned in the past 3 or so years to run a lower air pressure like 185ish and run a hefty amounts of volume spacers.

Moral of the story, air shocks can be really tricky for the folks that are 200+ as I have heard they are tuned for the 160lb(?) rider from the factory.

When they function right, they are great.
