    Old dangerboy dirtbag rockers

    Anybody have a set of the 6-7 inch Dirtbag rockers by Dangerboy?

    If you do and wouldn't mind taking a few measurements for me, PM me and I'll let you know what I need and how to accurately do it.

    ( T does not have anymore and DB never got back to me. )

    Yeah, the bikes were probably alot less profitable with them.
    Just because everyone says your wrong, it doesn't make you right. But it is a pretty good indication.

    Anyway, just wondering as I've been nerding out lately and playing around with linkages and pivot locations. Figured the best way to check my work was to compare it to something that was actually at one time used. Compare the results and see if it makes a difference,as there are multiple solutions (rocker arms) for a given stroke and desired rear wheel travel. Again, just nerding out.

    On one of the plates, carefully measure the distance between (center to center of each hole):

    1. the 7" pivot and the frame pivot
    2. the 7" pivot and the seat-stay pivot
    3. the frame pivot and the seat-stay pivot

    to the nearest mm is close enough, it doesn't have to be any more accuate than that. thanks!

    7" to frame = 2 7/8"
    7" to ST =10 1/2"
    Frame to ST = 8 1/4"
    My tape measure didn't have mm. Hope that helps. Are making some plates?

    Out of curiosity do you have the measurements for an 06 rocker?

    The 06 rockers were pretty much the same as the Dangerboy ones as far as size and proportions, i had an 05 with the Dangerboy plates which I broke the rear swing arm on and Tranny sent me a 06 rear end which bolted up perfectly. I have an 07 now and did do a comparison of the plates before I sold the 05 frame and they are very different proportions.
