    IMO, they're pretty similar bikes, but you should notice improved handling/suspension on the Heckler

    Both single high pivot, so it comes down to components. What are the components on each?

    The heckler looks pretty good for $600 with a fox float kashima on the front.
    Also looks like a fox dhx in back and a mixed slx / sram drive train.

    Its more of an all mountain bike, 6 inch rear, probably a fox 36 160mm front. Light free ride yes but heavy jumping will break it eventually. A true dh bike is 7 inch+ and much beefier, with a dual crown fork.

    Also that heckler might be hot. When I see mish mash parts, and what looks like spray can over decals, I get suspicious.

    Dunno, never been. But, if you only have one bike, I highly recommend a bike like a heckler which is a halfway decent climber. Unless you're riding lift served park only, you'll need to get to the top somehow. Less walking = more runs = more practice =advance faster, despite the limitations of a 6 inch compared to a full dh bike.
