    2008 GT Dhi Team??

    So the time has come for me to decide which rig to ride next season. I've rode just about every frame design out there, and have narrowed my choices down to two:

    2008 Demo 8 II Link to Demo 8 II
    2008 GT DHi Team. Link to DHi Team

    Last year I rode a Demo 7 and loved it to death, previously I rode a Dhi (not the new ID4 suspension design, however) and also loved it. The part specs are very similar, however i think that the nod would go to the DHi as it has Saint cranks.

    My question is if anybody has had any chance to get some quality time with the GT Dhi (07 or 08) and what their thoughts were on it.

    I've rode Demos quite extensively, and know that they are my favorite design currently, i'm just thinking of something a tad more 'playful' for next season, which lead me to the DHi.

    Oh and Price is negligible in this case so please do not judge solely on price.

    Thanks for the thoughts.

    Air shock is actually a plus for me. i'm only 155lbs with gear.

    It was either 2006 or 2007, i think 2007.

    Even if you are fairly light I still wouldn't go with an air shock for dh.

    Edit: you tell me, this was the bike

    its definitely an interesting frame design, and judging from the massive monoque downtube/main tube, they have some serious forces to deal with. Then you look at a traditional diamond shaped steel frame, with tiny little tubes and clearly there's something to be said for the old-school frame design. Who knows though, I suppose it depends on where the frame cracked and how. Not to mention, it probably didn't really fail in 11 places, but in 1 point which compromised the rest of the frame, right?

    i actually kind of like the look of the dhi but i think that it looks more like a strictly dh bike, and the demo looks more like a play around bike, i dont know if that is true but thats the way it looks to me, my brother has a demo and i think that it feels very nice,so count me in for the demo

    That's the tip though, I only DH. More and more racing.

    Probably should have stated that in my o.p.

    in that case then if you bought the demo you could probably dh race and play around with it, i know that the dhi are pretty light, i dont know about the demos weight though, they are both sick imo

    shiat, then the DHi must rail big time if the bb is so low, on my firends demo, it already feels like your riding on the ground, but that is just crazy, and if you are just strictly racing, go for the DHi, who cares what it looks like if it performs

    Do you know how much 6mm is? Did you look up how high the Demo was before making that wild guess...

    GT's site says the bb height is 362mm, which is 14.25". That is not that low.

    From gt's web site : BB height 362mm (size large frame)
    frm spec. web site : BB height (low setting) 368mm

    The demo's have an ok bb... not nearly as low as the sunday (pssshh)
    I'm still so undecided.

    Yeah 14.25 sucks, my swd 216 is 13.9 with the 888 most of the way slacked out.

    The 06 swingarm i believe had a defect and would separate but I haven't seen any of the 07's do that. They also have reinforced the swingarm as well.

    Check out ridemonkey.com or Farkin and ask on there if you want to know from people who actually have ridden the bikes.

    Yes i have ordered one, but i don't need to buy it (i work in a shop). i was seeing if there was any interest in it.


    Also *** from specialized web site the Demo 7 II's BB height is the same as the DHi (362mm). so the DHi's bb is the same as what i'm used to on my Demo from last year.

    Ahem....... Sundays Suck. Their sizing does not fit me, and ride very poorly for my tastes. As to avoid flaming, i will leave it that I originally posted that I have narrowed my choices to these two.

    the DHi for sure. its just so awesome looking. And they sent a prototype one over here (new Zealand) because we apparently break the most bikes in the world compared to other countries, but back to the point this guy still hasn't managed to break it compared to the last one in which he cracked it in a few days

    Ugh. The demo is so tried and true, but the Dhi seems like it would still rail for next season. I'm not hard on parts at all, so i don't think the durability is a huge issue. I buy myself a new ride every season too...

    Thanks for all the insight so far! and keep the comments coming!

    Don't be fooled..

    The guy that rode the DHi in that picture is a pro level DH racer. That being said, dude is extremely hard on wheels and everything else on a bike. The guy flat out pins it. The bike in the picture was also used on his regular training days and he sometimes like to huck it. It was super light (somewhere around 38 lbs.) and it is stupid fast. He could corner on that thing better than most other bikes I've gotten him on. The bike had some fabrication issues that year and the R&D team that looked over it after we sent it back was in shock of how hard it was ridden to get to that point. There were cracks EVERYWHERE!!

    GT assured us that the new frames were stronger and more durable. However, race only frames usually shouldn't be ridden as a daily banger or hucker. They are made for race day. Most pro level riders have one frame they use as a beater for training and another as their race weekend bike. The DHi though is one HELL of a race bike.

    That seems to be the consensus. they are like tissues.. use them for a season and throw them out

    leaning towards the demo if i do more fr next season, but DHi for sure if i end up not.

    just gotta' be introspective and think what i really do all season long.

    Thanks for the reply, that cleared a lot up about the mystery cracking.

    If price is not an option, get a 303!
    Seems to me there are a lot more race-specific bikes out there that are worth looking at...

    303s are the worst waste of high grade aluminum i can think of (save for sundays....)

    I know what I like, and if I remember correctly, my original post stated that I have narrowed it down to these two bikes. thanks for your input though.

    The iDrive is pretty dope on them too... i can use chris king bearings in the pivots

    'looking good' is in the eye of the beholder.... as they saying goes : "if you suck, at least look good doing it!"

    I still want to play with your dhi once you get it.....


    And I just want to go on record saying that there is a 99.999999% chance you will swap that frame out for a nice shiny demo 8 within the first month of next season. I know how you roll, and this is an obvious next move for you. . You always get sucked in by the pull of something weird and exotic and then swap it out for something that actually works. And somehow you always manage to actually make money by doing that.
    I kinda wish my brakes actually worked, but I guess that just makes me faster, right?

    bahahahaha true that.

    i think i'm actually gonna leave this one mostly stock this year. i was thinking all these "swap this, do that, order this, custom that" but i'm probably just gonna swap rubber and grips. maybe bars once we get some more sunlines in.

    ...and then you will want new brakes and then you will find some shinier wheels and then you'll want a baller headset and then you'll break that turd of a seat mast and decide to get a real frame.

    yeah, my ass. You won't be able to resist. I can count the number of parts that you left stock on your demo on one hand. I was waiting for the day when I'd find a dvd player and heated seat on that thing.

    So stop lying to yourself.

    frame
    shock body
    bars
    chain (for only half the season)
    lol. she was a pimp-wagon.

    dude, i seriously, seriously question your decision here. the dhx air is NOT good for dh. push won't even touch it. do you know what the difference in weight will be?

    i'd even take the demo 8 I over the Dhi team. as your attorney, i advise you to get a real bike.
