I wouldn't be so sure. The newest members to these forums seem to be rather immature, defensive, and full of sh!t. Note: Potiniwon'tshutthehellupsoislanderotherpeople.

Nice ride! That's a B.F.F (Big F***in' Fork)! What's the travel? Also, I was wondering how'd you get a 2005 rear triangle for a Demo?

200 mm in the front, I broke the 2004 rear triangle so specialized sent me a new one.

NICE RIDE, I have a similar set up. One questions though, how come you aren't running the Marz integrated stem? Do you like the Diablous better? Why?

I have the integrated stem, but I like the diablous more because i like the rise and bulkiness of it. It also has flames so I go faster ;). I don't know why but I run a 3 inch rise handle bar and a some-inch rise stem and I really like it. I am 5' 7" and the frame size is large. Strange I know but I love it.
Except lately I've been noticing some play in the rear shock and a rattling sound coming from the rear, It's not chain slap, the pivots are all tight, so I'm starting to wonder.
Note : The rear shock is a DHX 5.0

Haha I read through that thread.
He needs to go back to Pinkbike with the rest of the 12 year olds.

Tight bike bro! I like to think that we MTBRers are a little more mature than the Pinkbikers on most occasions...

tite bike. my friend has a stock 04 demo 9 dh, and its sooo heavy. what does yours weigh in at?
Around 50 pounds.
I don't really consider that heavy. I can pull almost 90 degree whips and still bring them back, it controls very well, flickable in the air even though it is a large size.
I'm 5' 7" , 145 pounds and I wouldn't change a thing.

You got any pics of those whips, they sound tight. Again, awesome bike.
