    the 66 only has an inch less than the 888 that was on it. plus it seems to corner a bit better

    ive run those specialized pedals before on my brooklyn. amazing pedals !

    That's one thing about specialized that i appreciate. even though they are a bike company, their other products like their tires, pedals, gear at all top quality. not just private-labeled junk. when they put their name on something, it's usually top quality. I love their tires.

    The Specialized Lo Pro Mag's are awesome... I cant stand Specialized tires, for DH and freeriding on the Shore or Whistler, they cant compare to Michelin's or Maxxis tires.... Nice build, that is a sweet combo.

    Demo 8's aren't real heavy, I think they come stock at about 42lbs. Your'e probably thinking of the Demo 9, that thing is a pig. It comes in at 45-46 I think

    Nice setup! Is that a Swinger 4/6 way you have at the back? I bet it's still peddable uphil. The only thing I don't like are the SSVF internals of the 66 VF fork. Those tend to pack up on multiple hits. Other than that, It should be perfect!

    You must live somewhere opposite of where I live.

    Every set of Specialized tires I've been on or had freinds with them, have completely blown chunks. Even thier "DH" tires are total shite IMO. I find them as slippery as snot on ice!

    Guess it goes to show personal preference and different terrain can change an opinion of a tire.

    your demo will love Whistler. don't worry about the whole "put a duel crown fork on your bike" there were even some parts on angry pirate where people had to get off and walk down because their DC fork wouldn't let them make a tight enough turn. I ran a 66VF up at whistler, did great.

    Sounds like the people you saw with DC's just suck.

    Sweet bike. I've heard things about spiking and whatnot with the VF's, but if it suits you, great.

    hehe no. it was on angry pirate. theres one turn that is just a little too steep for some DC's like my boxxer did alright on the turn, my kingping didnt.

    the VF has more spiking issues than my boxxer. the VF was a terrible fork. then I started useing a 888RC, but that blew up, sent it into marz, never got it back. but I did recieve a 888RC2X ...good fork.
