What do you guys think? I think the specialized demo 8 is pretty awesome.

Have you seen the new Zerode bike from New Zealand? It's got a high pivot point for a rearward axle path, linkage suspension and a gearbox drivetrain. See also the Superco. The future is here.

It depends on what you want out of a DH bike. If you want something that will go in a straight line as fast as possible no matter the gnarly conditions, I would have to vote for the V10 Carbon BUT if you want more of a playful bike that you can shred turns on the Demo 8 would be my pick. I have yet to try the Trek and since they are soo dam expensive I won't ever try one but they do looks nice...

The V-10 is not all that smooth in the rough.....there are better designs with bump eating ability.

Has anyone else ridden the supreme operator? In my opinion, it is the best bike ever made. It corners and is fun like the demo, but is as fast if not faster than the v10c.
