    Actually think it was the angle of the shot........looks even funnier when I have the Heckler shot that way.

    Well,
    that couldnīt work out better.

    I ride a Heckler too, with a 160mm adjustable travel fork. Great trailbike. But I am intrigued by the 29" wheels.
    I feel the need for a second bike, something even snappier and lighter than the Heckler. For the reaaaaallly long epic rides.


    How does your Tallboy compare to your Heckler? Does it feel a lot different?

    Take this with a grain of salt.........

    I have been riding 29ers since 2004, so obviously I like the way they ride.

    Since I got the Tallboy, I have not ridden the Heckler(XL, Float 36, DHX Coil...33 lbs.)

    The Tallboy replaced my Ventana El Padrino hardtail 29er.

    My Heckler obviously has a taller front end so it doesn't climb the steeps nearly as well as the Tallboy. Top tubes are within .5" of each other so the fit of the 2 bikes is really close.

    THe Heckler is smoother through the rough stuff, but that has more to do with amount of travel. I don't feel that I am giving up any speed on the Tallboy. With the 120mm fork, the Tallboy has a nice slack feel to it......but not slow in the steering.

    The Tallboy definately changes direction well....it is light and stiff so you can throw it around.

    The Heckler may not get as much use as it used to....the Tallboy has so far handled everything that I have thrown at it. For AM/FR type rides, the Heckler is the way to go, but for just about everything else the Tallboy is hard to beat.

    I am in North Mississippi. Our trails have been saturated for a few months. My wife is from
    Greenville, SC and I miss it. Pisgah is a great place to ride. As for the tires, the Stout is not a racing tire by no means, but it is a good training tire.

    The orange looks even better in person. Only problem is it has way too many gears.
    if you don't feel like riding, that's usually when you need it most

    Wish I could help you with that.....I am currently broken, so the bike is living at the LBS for display/demo.

    However, you can kinda to the math if you have Thomson post. The length of the post is 350mm. I have about 1.5" extra before the limit line inside the frame.

    Yup! I was hoping for an orange one, but this one will do just fine. Still need to get a few things before I can start building it up...mainly a fork. How you feeling?

    Not a fan of the orange, but when done correctly, they look nice. We finally got 2 of the mediums that were ordered months ago.

    Feeling good......am able to drive and get around on my own now......still in a cast for another few weeks, then ????? Tired of being seditary. I have jumped on the bike and rode around the house 1 legged a few times, but felt like I was going to die.

    Post up some pics when you get it built.
