Looks like Specialized is stepping up their game as well.

Official presentation is supposed to be tomorrow in the morning but that picture has been floating around for the last hour or so.

Now I'm not too familiar with Demos, so does anyone spot any changes besides the new frame material?

By the way - first post, so hello from rainy Germany!

good but still made of aluminium tongue

It wouldn't surprise me if they were coming out with a carbon Demo.

I hope it really is carbon. And he has black stantions on the boxxer. Probably new geo again.

It's carbon. there was a larger picture online somehwere else. you can see it around the shock hoop.

5/13/2010 2:40 PM

Who's that Sven guy anyway? ;-)

I can't wait to see pictures of Day 1 in Maribor, sooooo excited for the World Cup, woot!

So apart from the frame material, which apparantly hasn't changed at all, does anyone spot any changes to the current Demo?

Looks surprisingly unflashy to me. First bright red, then neon green in Schladming (not to mention the hideous pink&yellow suits at fort bill) and now just plain and simple black?
Maybe Sam´s going to wear a reflective jersey or something, that´s just too much understatement...

I don't see what the big deal is then. Looks pretty lame like all their bikes.

|

You can clearly see a weld in the shock hoop or right 'under the shock'. And Sven should know since he's there.

|

black boxxer stantions remind me of marrozachi

|

5/13/2010 4:39 PM

couple things

-Black should come back, I hate this technicolor stuff we have going on
-Sam walks on water but i still dont want a demo
-Black Stanchions are miles ahead of polished silver, christ...

when is palmer showing up on this?

|

5/13/2010 5:24 PM

looks like a thru axel in the rear...

|

5/13/2010 5:47 PM

Aluminum front, carbon rear.

Enough with the carbon... it's black, but there are welds visible on both the rear swingarm and front triangle. Alu, thru and thru. It's the same bike as ever, even if the geo is tweaked. meh.

Specialized adds the Demo 8 to the list of Project Black bikes that includes The Shiv, and Roubaix.

have a closer look. Even the front triangle looks different. No big bar above the shock and he linkage looks shorter...

|

5/13/2010 8:10 PM

looks like that dumb seat with the pleasure ribbing may have made the cut

|

5/13/2010 8:47 PM

dual bar seat stays?

at least the rear looks like carbon.

|

5/14/2010 12:42 PM

to me it looks a bit like they took an older sx trail front and put the demo back on it...

|

5/14/2010 1:11 PM

Has nobody seen a demo before? lol Dual bar seat stays?!?!?! Top tube appears to be lower [probably lower stand over], the "magic link" is smaller [lighter i'm assuming] and the "cage" around the shock is totally different. But i do wish it was carbon....

|

5/14/2010 1:35 PM

Another view.

Looks like you can swap out the rear shock mount to change travel/characteristics of suspension. sxtrail on steroids.
