    I will have to ask at the shop I bought my frame, to see how much it would be from SC,
    I wanted to lighten my bike up, and maybe have a go at some xc races, not the ideal bike but it would be mainly for fun.

    I thought the Heckler was a standard I2I? The current gen it 8.5"x2.5" and the previous is 7.875"x2.25" IIRC

    Ah, I see, Fox don't sell an 8.5"x2.5" RP23 aftermarket. Don't mind me!

    Yo Jeff

    If you do manage to find the right size, try to get one with the lowest compression setting, mine came set with the high internal compression (even in the open setting), and it never quite felt right for me!

    Heres a pic of what mine looked like, the big bar is highlighted, they probably did that for a more xc feel but if you want it for a playbike then you might want to look at one with the small bar highlighted

    good luck
