    04 Demo 9....whats the history on this frame?

    This is going down memory lane for some of you....

    I got a chance to buy a 04 Demo 9 leftover frame, brand new, for a decent price.

    I know Demo's from that era are built like tanks, but weights as much too.

    Anyways, any known issues with that frame?

    I'm not a racer, just need something burly for shuttle/park/hike-a-bike sessions that will last me for a long time (few years at the least).

    High BB (14.5+), steeper head angle 66, 13.5 lbs. and 16.5 chainstays. Built like a tank and super stiff rear end. Rode one for almost 5 years. The bike will last for years but if you could build it under 45lbs you might be lucky. I really liked the stiff rear end and short CS, coming from BMX, but what I like about the new geometry is the lower BB. Bikes feel more stable and faster low and long. As much as I liked the bike, I would look for a 2010 or newer. The newer geometry is of much better.

    pricepoint is key...under 500 okay...below 400 better

    they will last, but they are heavy...they are almost 13.5 pounds
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days
