    Thanks Allen.

    I have a Roco World Cup on my Blindside and love it for what I want the bike to do; but Rocos are NOT efficient pedallers for sure. I think you will find the DHX to be much better suited for your Dirt Bag.

    That depends on the eye-to-eye length of the Roco you want to buy. The Dirt Bags came stock with a 7.875" x 2.25" shock.

    The '05's bottom mount is different from later Dirtbags; so you'll have to run the shock with the chamber to the top and front (flipped and forward). Check how this Avy is mounted:
