Very similar suspension to the SC Heckler, one of the longest lived suspension setups on the market today. Should be a fun ride!

Last bike was a Specialized Hardrock Comp Disc which saw many trails around Indiana. Stuffed in the back of the XJ:



Latest bike is a Redline Monocog 29er with Reba Race fork, CK headset, Avid BB7s, clipless pedals and an occasional kid seat on the back (seat doesn't see trail time - tried an easy flat trail once with a not so happy daughter on the back).



This is how I carry it on most rides. If I have any long stopovers (or take it to work), I'll stuff it in the back, ride, then throw it on the rack for the trip home.
