Both of these are more suitable as "All Mountain/Trail" rigs (not the best for light Cross Country use). Heckler is more plush with the extra bit of travel. Nickel has taper head tube, anti-bob pivot geometry, and has been discontinued. I’d recommend the Nickel while they still last.

Thanks Blundar, I’m impressed with the prices of these frames. $600 is pretty affordable…though it would have to wait for front suspension and components. Anyone else have any input on these? Indeed the Nickel sounds pretty good…
