The Specialized Demo 9 is a high end freeride bicycle built for rough downhill trails. The frame is similar in design to the Specialized Demo 8, but now has a full 9 inches of travel and an extremely low center of gravity even while the rider is standing. The frame is adjustable to two geometry settings and works well with 26 and 24 inch wheels. The bike comes with Specialized Roller RS 26 x 2.6 in tires that use an aramid bead tread for improved traction. The fork is a Marzocchi 888VF that contributes 200mm of travel and works to dampen impacts, while the rear shock is a Manitou Swinger that can be adjusted to various positions and rebound settings. The Hayes HFX-9 full hydraulic disc brakes have 8 inch rotors for increased stability and control. Front and rear Shimano derailleurs work with a Shimano 9-speed casette.
