The Heckler does great with 6" travel forks. I have a Z1FR1 with the ETA. To me the travel adjust is key for climbing. I also run a 5" Fox float too which does great as well. The 6" fork just allows me to go faster in steeper and rougher stuff.
SC list the 36 as one of the fork options for the Heckler and I believe the current pic of it on their site shows it with a 36. I think the Talas is the better choice for more trail bike stuff and the vanilla for more freeride.
