    2016 Santa Cruz heckler vs 2016 stumpjumper 650b

    I need input on what bike is better over all. If the Stumpjumper is worth spending the extra $500. I mostly ride moderate trails. I was able to test ride both but just out in the parking lot, not at trails so not much to find out what bike will handle better

    Even though i recently purchased a 2016 heckler I can't speak to the superior bike. My desire to have a heckler goes back a couple years mainly for 2 reasons, 1) it's 20yr history, 2) it's simplicity. I've only had 1 ride and it was a test ride of sorts so no way to give any real data worth much.

    Edit: I might add that prior to my purchase i did some research on the heck in terms of what wheel sizes it would accommodate due to my goal of wanting to use 26+ and 650b+, i currently have the 26+ in use and will have the 650b+ wheelset built in the next month or so.
