    There is no need for a curve in the small framed version....I rode the medium and the small...Definite difference in ride and suspension .....The small seemed much stiffer (is stiffer) and the suspension stroke is smoother....I could have gone either way at my size but the small was a hands down better ride. I went over the same jump with the small and the medium while landing on pavement........no comparison!

    Wow thats interesting, you should provide that back to Santa Cruz I wonder if they are aware of that. It interesting that you mention the stroke as it seems the weight balance may be different.

    Right on man, congrats!

    I tried a Race Face Deus on this frame before the XTR....The Q-factor of the bottom bracket on the Race Face (no matter how I positioned the bushing/spacers) had the crank arms coming very close to the frame tubes and it made me want to switch. I called Santa Cruz and they said with a 47.5 to 50mm chainline, that it would work. I called Race Face and they stated that the Q-factor on Shimano is wider and better suited for the Heckler. Q factor is distance pedals are outward from center.

    worth the wait

    I waited for almost five months to get a medium frame in white. The parts are a mix of new and old... mostly new. I also noticed the Race face deus cranks to come really close, but so far no issues.

    Hers my large in liquid blue. I had a 4 month wait for my frame here in the UK, but it was well worth it.

    I'll be ordering a large Heckler soon and I'm unsure of what shock to go for so some experience from some '07 Heckler owners would be great. It's gonna be an air shock although I'm torn between the RP23 and the DHX 5.0 Air. I weight 14 st 6lbs and I ride general trail stuff and try to get to big UK bike centres a few times a year (Brechfa and Cwm Carn this year) so I need something which pedals great and can take the abuse my body will dish out. It will be built up with Pike 454s (air) and has a pretty sturdy wheelset (Mavic 521's and Hope Bulbs). It'll be a do it all bike which I don't want to have to worry about. I'd like to stick to the RP23 as it's light and has Pro Pedal but will it be tough enough?

    Cheers

    I've personally rode with a rp23, dhx air, and right now, I'm with a dhx coil. I'm excited about the 2008 Marzocchi ROCO TST Air! Plush coil feel, serviceable, and the TST provides a psuedo platform. All personal preference, really.

    Cheers. I ordered a large Orange one with an RP23 in the end, can't wait!!!

    Can anybody tell me what band diameter front mech I'll need and which one works best as there seem to be so many to choose from? It'll only be Deore.

    What size front mech did you use?
