    Super psyched, just picked it up a week ago. And before anybody says "you could have gotten something cheaper" or something along those lines, i did NOT pay full price. I got a super sweet deal and i actually not supposed to even mention the price, so lets just say it wasnt 6300 or close to 6300. Anyways here are the pics. If there are any questions on a part just ask me

    Weighs in at 39.64 lbs btw.

    That is a sweet ride! I wouldn't be too worried what people think though, regardless of what you paid or didn't pay.

    They're OEM brakes (Juicy 7 levers on Code Calipers) that most of the higher end Specialized gravity bikes are running.

    That Demo looks sick. The pics don't do it justice. That's a pretty lightweight with a relatively heavy build on it. Does the Mg link save something like half a pound?

    take off that hanger protector. all it does is make you mech break before the hanger, and the whole point of a replacabale hanger is to break before the mech.

    other than that, sick bike. i love specialized

    Thanks guys, yeah Code 7s, and yes 39.6lbs straight out of the box. I cant wait till the snow melts! :)

    And Lollapalooza you are right, the pics really dont do it justice. There are so many sweet details on it. Hubs match the rear swing arm, headset, and the lock-on part of the grips, stuff like that. And yeah i assume that Mg link saves quite a bit of weight, the Demo I doesnt have the Mg link and is about 2.5 pounds heaver, but im sure the weight difference isnt just because of the link.

    Wow, that's a pretty sweet bike. Light, too. Imagine how light it would be if Specialized 86'd all that 'demo' crap (which does nothing from a performance standpoint) and just turned it back in to a regular ol' FSR??

    P.S. You may want to hold off on another bike for a couple years and save up for a new dining room set. ;)

    Gotten something cheaper - no way. Now its time to start thinking about upgrades and spend even more money. Great looking bike and nice overall specs.

    I have a complete dining room set you can buy :)

    Sweet ride, the new Demos are way sick. Get some lower rise bars and you're set imo.

    I was thinking that too. I wonder why they have not adopted the low rise trend now that they have jumped on the white bar trend.

    The derailer cable was stock. And i like the higher rise bars personally, not a big fan of the low ones. Plus the white looks pimp!

    That's awesome. As soon as it warms up we've gotta do some building/riding. I'm so out of shape it isn't funny. That's probably just about the nicest bike in Morgantown now.

    She's a beaut. Glad to see Chip/Spec hooked you up. I didn't know that they sponsored any gravity riders.
