Team Bike: Sam Cory’s new S-Works Demo 8

After just one season of racing, the Peak Cycles/Bikeparts.com Gravity Team has proven to be one of the premier downhill squads in Colorado.  One of the junior riders, Sam Cory, just got his race bike for the upcoming season built up.  He’ll be riding a team-replica S-Works Demo 8, size large.  Weighing in at 35 pounds and featuring the most advanced technology in the gravity game, this bike has proven to be the best choice for downhill racers.  A Cane Creek Double Barrel shock, Rock Shox Boxxer Blackbox fork, Avid X0 gravity build kit and a mixture of Renthal and SDG cockpit components illustrate the bike’s pedigree.  The build is rounded out by DT-Swiss DH rims laced to DT-240s hubs.

Jump past the break to check out the bike Sam will be shredding for 2014!

Sram’s downhill-specific X0 groupset is the lightest and stiffest gravity drivetrain available. This is what the Pros ride.

Renthal’s Fatbar is one of the stiffest, lightest and widest in the industry. For a company with a background in motocross parts, they’ve been quite successful in their foray into cycling.

SDG’s DH saddle features rubber grippers to give the rider extra control and stability.

The S-Works frame features a front-triangle mad of Specialized’s FACT carbon.

Not only is Cane Creek’s Double Barrel shock one of the most well-performing shocks on the market, it is also the most highly tunable.
