2011 Specialized Demo 8 World Champion Limited Edition frame, this is a limited edition version of the more common red and white 2011 Demo 8, and it is the same frame design that was used until 2014/15 when the 650b wheels came in. The latest shape Demo came out in 2015/16. There were only 50 bikes in these colours in the country and this was the bike that Sam hill rode to victory in the World Championships in Monte Saint Anne in 2010 (not the actual bike :-D).I've owned this frame since 2011, it's been Invisiframed (custom cut frame protection tape), has had a Rockguardz carbon fibre downtube protector fitted from new and I put carbon leather patches everywhere where the cables and chain rubbed; consequently the frame is in very good condition; obviously as a used mountain bike there are marks from use, but there are no significant dints or dings and the scratches and chips have been kept to a minimum. In 2015 I replaced all the bearings (there are about 18) and I regreased the new bearings with marine grease before fitting them. I used the bike on a holiday to France that year but I haven't used it since. All the bearings are still perfect, if you take the shock off, the suspension linkage is super smooth and the bearings will be good for the foreseeable future.
This shock really makes a big difference to how the bike performs, it's brilliant. Also included with the frame is a Hope stainless bottom bracket, an FSA 1.5" headset with 1.25" reducers (all the bearings are perfect with both), a Thomson Elite seatpost, a Specialized seatclamp, an SDG saddle (the same one Sam Hill used), a Rockguardz carbon fibre downtube protector and the original pink gear cable. The rear axle is 150mm x 12mm.
There are hundreds of Demos about because they are awesome bikes, but I've only ever seen a couple in these colours, and I doubt that there will be many left in these colours and in this condition.
