    I manage to do a bit of climbing on my Yeti AS-X (a lot like the Bullit). It works fine as long as I have a gear I can keep turning seated. Geometry seems to make the biggest difference. Fortunately, I can drop the fork enough to be balanced on a moderately steep climb.

    or should i be looking for something else?
    I'd consider the Titus El Guapo as well. It was designed to be a great climbing bike. I am very impressed with it's climbing abilities, considering how great it is on the descents.

    it looks prettier than my road bike with full campy with gold ano wheel sets.
    I'm not hating it! I grew in in the inner city and love bling! I still can't wrap my head around flat black components. I have a dull metallic grey frame with all flat black components. Shiney is easier to clean than flat black.

    Both a superlight and a heckler would do fine climbing. the superlight will climb better than the hecker though

    Look at the way this heckler is propped up. The front of the bike (fork/wheel/ bars) are closer to the camera than the back. You can tell by looking at the lines on the wood floor. That's creating the illusion that the fork is larger relative to the bike than it really is.

    The 36 on a heckler is a great setup.

    Well it's like 3 inches closer, but I can see what you mean. I know that the 36 has been a popular choice for the Heckler...that's prob. what I would have done too had it not been for this picture.

    Yeah but his stem is far too high...for that set up at any rate. My 2cc worth, the bike is nice though.

    Ding Ding Ding!!! It's time to play the stupid question game: What does the numbers 32 & 36 means?

    I'm going to guess it's the diameter of the fork tube. 32mm or 36mm.

    32 and 36, here, mean different Fox fork series, and their stanchion diameters. There's also 40.

    you must be from SGP, got it from C2C?
    don't think there's any other country in the world that uses this kind of car plate.




    btw; thanks for everyone who replied, i was lookin at the sinister gruitr, which is like a beefier ver of the heckler...

    and also the 575 which is a lil bit XCish plus i don't feel safe with carbon seatstays.
    and also the banshee rune.
    check out great video coverage of anything mtb (well almost).

    Krome: Nice rides, both the Evo and the Mojo!

    Eyexcell: you should've gotten the 36t supercharger, that bashguard looks too big, nice bike though!
