    DHX 5.0 vs. Roco vs other (Demo 8)

    Alright im looking for something to replace my swinger 4-way on my demo 8. I didnt think it was that bad until i sat ona DHX, and now im never looking back. Question is, how do they compare to rocos or other rear shocks in the price range? I dont need any special hardware for it do i? They are still on cambriabike for $250. Any opinons?

    If you going to have to pedal more, I'd go with the DHX 5.0. If your doing more shuttled DH runs, go with the Roco.

    Just save up and get a cane creek double barrel. I spent yesterday sessioning on a demo with a CC and its just straight ridiculous. I think either of your choices would dominate the swinger though.
