    Modern marvels

    Had history channel on this morning and modern marvels: worlds strongest was on. It's a little old (2008) but my first time seeing it. They had darren berrecloth on it with his demo 8. They show how the frames made and the strength of the different parts of the frame. Also hard foes bikes on there. Both company's were claiming to have bombproof frames but only specialized showed there frame tests. Definitely worth checking out if u can find it. I was pretty pumped just to see them acknowledge DH Bikes and the how gnarly they've become.

    It's fun to learn that DH techology is being televised on mainstream media!
    I will keep an eye out for that program

    I saw that episode a few years ago and thought it was pretty darn cool. I always enjoy watching a mainstream media program of some sort on all of the sports and things I love.

    2008 = 6 grand

    I got my 2008 Demo7 for 1k (although used). Not as light as the newer frames but, I'll take durability over weight anytime. Since, I can't afford to change frame every year or two. The new Demo would be my next bike but, till that time comes, I'm still very happy bashing my 7.
