    I just emailed Specialized because i was curious about the weight of the 2008 Demo 8 II. According to them the Demo 8 II is coming in at 39 lbs. i just personally found that pretty crazy. It looks like a beast, but i guess it isnt! Just thought i would pass that information to you. Now if we could just lighten the price of the bike...

    LOL!! For that kind of cash, you could have something a lot nicer, IMO.

    Seriously, I would just take 4k and buy a bike and spend the rest on a kiddie pool filled with jello, two hookers, a midget and a go kart.
