    New question here. Heckler 650b (vs Bronson)

    Hi,
    I wonder if anyone has ride experience with the new Heckler 650b. The Heckler shares the same geometry with the Bronson so it would be very interesting how this bike compares. But any ride experience would be appreciated.

    My wife has one she has only ridden it once and it was a pretty short ride we are going to get out this weekend so she can get more miles on it. I will direct you over to this thread as she has posted some info about it and then i believe she is going to give a better sort of review once she gets some more saddle time. The new Heckler...

    I should add that she won't be able to compare it to the bronson as she has never ridden one.

    I'm very interested in this comparison as well. Haven't found much on the new 650B Heckler.

    let me start by saying I've not ridden either but I have a sl29 and a solo so given that the geometry is the same it comes down to rear suspension and i'd have to say that the Bronson has a real advantage in the rocks as it just seems to climb and roll over them better. Other than that I think the single pivot works really well but the vpp is better
