Santa Cruz Heckler

I am most likely getting a Santa Cruz Heckler, when the 2005's arrive and I am wondering what the best set up for the bike is?


I am thinking either a Vanilla or a Talas fork, Fox Float shock and full XT

I'm not too sure what disc brakes to go with or what rims I should use?

I am 5'9, 200lbs so I am thinking the M would be the best frame for me, but I'm not too sure, I test rode the one we have at work at I think it is a L, but I can't remember

PS. Has anybody seen the Root Beer color, I have seen the Root Beer Norco Bigfoot and I think it is pretty cool, I want to know if the color is similar


Thanks

The Root Beer color is very schweet, I'd go for it.

As far as the set-up, I like XT stuff. I'd probably do the same. I am thinking about trying out the new Sram Triggers though.

Rear shock, I'm still a sucker for coil overs, so I'd actually choose the Progressive 5th Element. Forks: I'd go with a Marzocchi. Z150 for SC or wait until the new 666 comes out for triple clamp.
