2015 Specialized Demo

   Little late on this one, but it is still worth looking at. This is the 2015 Specialized Demo, with a really cool asymmetrical frame design. The Demo is a dyed in the wool downhill bike.

2015 Demo

   This bike comes with a whole host of features:
  • Full carbon frame (with some alum in places)
  • 200mm rear travel
  • 27.5" wheel size
  • aggressive head angle
  • Offset axle from fork
  • Nice short chain stay
  • BB30
   What really makes this frame interesting is the asymmetrical seat tube, allowing the shock some room to move.

   Because frame designers can build strength into carbon with such precision, there is no danger of this design. I really like this bike, and I hope we continue to see frames that really take advantage of carbon as a material.
