    2012 Demo 8 II Built up

    I was stoked to get the frame in yesterday, I started building it up last night, and finished the build to make it ride-able for the coming week. I am still waiting on a few parts to freshen it up to come in on monday, such as 2012 fox 40 stantions and seal kit, new saddle, new brake lines, and avid HS1 rotors, but I am pretty happy with it. I ran the double barrel on my 2011 frame and it was great, i was pumped to see it came stock on the 2012 frame...now i have 2, its never a bad thing to have a spare! Here is the build:

    2012 Demo 8 II frame with cane creek double barrel & ti spring
    FSA Headset
    Fox 40 RC2 fork
    Marrow Racing Stem
    Cromag OSX bars
    ODI TLD lock on grips
    Avid Code R Brakes
    SRAM X.0 Shifter mated to a short cage X.9 rear derailleur
    Industry 9 DH Wheelset 20mm front 150x12mm rear
    Thomson Seatpost and seatpost clamp
    Specialized Phenom Ti Saddle
    Tires will go between Hillbilly's, Butchers and Muddy Marys
    Truvativ Decendent Cranks
    E:13 LG1+ guide
    Pedals will be Twenty6 Prerunners

    Looks ridiculous, sweet build.

    So the 2012s are coming stock with a double barrel?

    Really nice build . It would be nice to hear what your think about the 2012 over the 2011.
    Any Idea about the difference in weight between the two?

    Thanks guys. Its going for some lift access this tuesday, the rest of the parts come in on monday, so ill be busy fine tuning to get it ready for tues.

    The Double Barrel is coming stock on the 2012 Demo 8 II completes and framesets.

    I am pretty sure the frame is the same as my 2011, so I am guessing no weight difference. I actually had a double barrel on my 2011, so its pretty much just a color change. the double barrel is a very good shock, it take some time to dial in with all the adjustments, but with some help its dialed for me and it works great. Now I have a spare one laying around since I gave that guy that took my 2011 the stock shock, but its never bad to have spares i have come to realize!

    Did you buy it as a frame? Did it come with custom bumpers for the Fox 40? We brought in a bike to our shop and the customer wants to sell the Boxxer and put on a 40, but there's issues with the bottom crown hitting the frame...

    It was bought as a frame, they come with the frame, but not the complete. You can get the bumpers from specialized so you won't hit the frame

    Great build! Can you tell me whether the 2012 Demo head tube is tapered or 1-1/5" at both top and bottom? (I've ordered just the frame so it comes without a headset) Thanks.

    Edit: Actually it comes with a headset, just not made clear in the specs.

    Hey man, I'm thinking of building up a 2012 Demo 8 from the frame. On the Specialized website it says that it has a 1-1/2" integrated for 1-1/8" steerer, cartridge bearings headset. Will I need to purchase a separate headset or can I use this one. I'm just a little confused. Thanks.

    It comes with one. The way the spec is worded on the Specialized site doesn't really make that clear. I had my LBS fit my Fox 40 to the frame and they used the headset already set in the frame. As they fitted a Straitline stem they stuck a Straitline stem cap on it

    can I just basically buy any crankset? or do I have to pay attention to compatibility with the press fit BB of the demo?
