    they offered. i spend tons of hours clear braing that frame. Didnt really want to go through that again. they offered to do something nice for me next year when upgrade time comes around. If that works out well im sure you'll be hearing me sing praises of specialized all season ....we'll see.

Not saying anything then looking surprised when damaged frames come back isn't a great advert.
    The Issue is Specialized designed a bike to be used specifically with SRAM´s (Rock Shox) Boxxer. Great bike, and frame, but you want to ride it? you have to buy a Boxxer. Big business.

    BUT what for all of us who dont like Boxxers? I actually like Marzocchi´s 888, or in any case... a Fox 40!

    As of this moment we are almost in 2013 and this was no mistake, they have changed nothing in this regard in the 2012 and 2013 Demos.

    Badly done Specialized!

    My 2013 carbon demo works fine with the standard fox 40 bumpers, no special bumpers needed

    Specialized has offered a Fox 40 specific bumper kit since the bike was first introduced. That seems like a solution to me.

    Marzocchi is compatible with their stock bumpers.
