    Finally finished my new Demo 8 pics

    I finally took a day off from work to finish building my Demo 8. I'm happy with how it turned out and it weighs just under 42 lbs, not bad considering the rims and crank I have on it. Anyway, here's some pics, let me know what you think.

    Very nice..... I see your from San Diego. Where do you ride DH at. What cities....Don't mention trail names. I know most of the spots in SD if you ever want to hook up for a ride. We actaully have a pretty big DH crew. Mostly from people we meet here on MTBR.

    Congrats on your new rig.

    Hello Headtube! I do my research before I build my bikes and I don't have to worry about ovalizing my headtube because I do have the correct King headset installed but thanks for your concern anyway.

    The XO shorty works pretty well. I haven't had one problem since I started running them 1 1/2 years ago. I did have one medium cage XO that did get bent but nothing was damaged on the cage. I think you've got just hit something right on for one of these carbon cages to break.

    So you special ordered a 34.00 mm Chris King headset?. Chris King will make them at no additional charge.

    Yeah, my XO on my Demo is still going strongs, its taken some abuse, yet everytime i hit it, dollar signs go flying through my mind, but i guess its better to have an expensive RD that takes the abuse as opposed to a cheaper one that you replace 3 or 4 times season.

    Awesome steed mate - very nice indeed, particularly liking the Cane Creek shock. Only problem is, how are you going to get at the compression/rebound adjusters? The frame design doesn't make it particularly easy does it.
