Yes, the president of the shop at which I work is running his Heckler with a new 29" 36 up front. So far he really likes it.

I've committed the cardinal sin of posing my bike the wrong way Facepalm

Been on all the Bronsons, and this is my favorite by far. Thing just shreds downhill!

Tire logos aren't lined up either, smh. The grey and red play very nicely together though!

Yes, the gray and red do look good together.

not singling out, but it made me think about it. Why is it convention to turn the rear axle lever forward? I have always faced mine rearward, mainly from my experience on dirt bikes with sticks, limbs, small trees getting hung up in shifters, brakes, etc. I just see it as a hazard.

Installed facing forward it would take a downward force to loosen, an unlikely scenario. Installed facing rearward it would take an upward force to loosen, such as a rock or root impact. Forward seems safer to me. Although it could snag on something it seems more likely to accidentally loosen from an upward impact in the rear facing position.
