    will the DHX 5.0 fit in the shock compartment on the Giant DH? The resevoir area on the DHX looks larger than the RS or Manitou models and just wondered if there was enough clearance on the Giant.

    Thanks

    I think you would be better off getting a shock with a remote piggyback. It is quite the pain to take that shock out everytime you need to put air in it.

    indeed manitou did not put on the remote resi for clearance issues it was mostly for mud and tuning purposes. maby you could phone up turner and pretend you have a dhr and get the to sell you one of the dhx with the remote resivoir.

    I agree, it is a bit of a pain with the location, but I already have the DHX. But once it is tuned, You really shouldn't have to fool with it too much. But, will it fit?
