    Specialized demo 7, Freeride or Short travel Dh bike?

    Hi, i recently got myself a 2008 specialized demo 7 with a marzocchi 66 rcv 180mm single crown fork. I was wondering, is this more of a freeride bike or a single crown DH bike? cheers

    Yes.

    It just depends on the setup but it'll handle most situations.

    Remove the spacer from below the bottom-out bumper and it becomes a standard 8" DH bike that happens to have a 7" singlecrown fork. Of course that fork has the same A-C as an 8" double crown so it's just a slightly firmer, flexier DH fork.

    Edit: Nevermind, Gwin's race result confirms this a freeride bike, not a DH race bike.
