Brodie Demon Older Downhill Full Suspension

5/5 (4 Reviews)

Product Description

A low standover and low shock ratio are the Demon's main design features. The low standover gives the bike a small feel and instills confidence while riding big lines. The low shock ratio of 2.66:1 allows the SPV shock to use lower spring rates, the adjustability to be more effective, and improves the feel of the bike.

Strengths:    Excellent geometry. Very compact feel but roomy enough to maneuver. Suspension is a tried and true Horst Link design that works very well. Yes, Swinger 6 way is.......not that great. DHX5 or Roco world-cup is the ticket.

Weaknesses:    The only weakness I would even bother to mention is the weight. The frame on its own is pretty chunky, but it is durable. Could be the toughest bike ever made.

Bottom Line:   
I have 3 of these frames. One is a 2003 in red. Second one is a 2005 with numerous cracks in it but it was still totally rideable up until I retired it. Third is a 2005 that I just bought and am going to get built up for the spring. Can't wait. The Demon will take anything you throw at it without any problems whatsoever.

Strengths:    burly as hell... nobody could break this bike
geometry is spot on for DH, but with the movement of a few bolts one could raise the bb shorten th wheel base and make themselves one sweet ass freeride machine
150x12mm thru axle

Weaknesses:    swinger 6 is a pain in the ass... blew it twice this season

Bottom Line:   
sick bike.... has far surpassed my expectations... only prob is the shock, not a problem with the frame hence why it does not affect my rating of it. next year i will be riding a marzocchi roco to better match the performance of my forks

btw 888 + demon= perfect match if u buy this frame get this fork aswell
