    Did you use the stock eyelet to mount the CCDB?

    No, I ordered it from cane creek direct and they put the eyelet for the demo on there, and they were kind enough to include the standard eyelet with it also

    @ Nagaredama, yes, I am using the stock yoke, to my knowledge is the only one available at the moment.

    Good to know. I'm picking my frame up on Wednesday and would rather run a CCDB over the Fox RC4. Good to know the CCDB will work on the stock Fox yoke.

    Here is my 'lil Terror...

    She arrived end of November after having her on order since August.
    Sold my Sam Hill 2010 at first sight of 2011 spy shots.

    2011 Demo 8 1 medium
    Bone stock aside from the Edge 800mm bars, some lighter SX casing tries and DX pedals.
    Came in at just under 38lbs compelete.

    Having been a owner of a 2006 Demo 7 and 2010 Demo 8 this one takes the cake.
    Like Spec says...it's just pure refinement from the previous versions. It's nothing like the 2010 eventhough Spec says the geometry is similair....it's not. They ride completely different (due to super low/short headtube). This one has no limits and corners like it's on rails...and I even said that about my 2010.

    The Boxxer R is fine...for me the less adjustments the better and it feels like butter. The rear is dialed and that's even with the Vanilla R rear shock. Not sure but either a Ti coil on this some day or an RC4...but honeslty can't tell a difference from my 2010 RC4 and this Vanilla...maybe it's just me.

    Nice build as usual Jut8...you've always got the sick/latest goodies!

    Oh...rims on these....trash.
    My only complaint.

    Can't wait to see the Darth Vader special when it arrives (solid black)...THAT is going to be the CHIT!

    Snow man, super build that, i have a yellow and green on order and agree about the boxxer race, thats what i have and will be fitting on mine.

    Canny wait as i've been riding an '08 demo 7 with the boxxers and i had a wee spin on a small '11 and it was totally different compared to mine and that was only in the car park.

    aiming for the 12th to be its first ride out!!

    Standard dish for a 150mm wheelset with the new demos! No more dishing your wheels 6mm to the brake side like the previous years.

    I bailed off the All Black Demo waiting list today. I have already been without a DH bike for over a month and Im sick of it. I was told if I switched to the yellow/green I would have it by the end of the week.
