    Heckler

    Thinking about buying a Heckler off the Santa Cruz website. The Heckler 6.2 has a tapered. I can transfer all my components from my current bike to the Heckler except the fork. How good is the Heckler 6.2? Is it worth buying? Any help would be appreciated.

    The Heckler is a great tried and true all mountain bike. New suspension designs have come and gone but IMO a classic single pivot bike will always be around. If you're concerned about having a 1 1/8" straight steerer fork not working in the tapered headtube, don't worry there are reducer headsets to make it work.

    Also read this, there are 250+ reviews for this 4+ chili rated bike.

    In order to fit a straight fork into a tapered headset, all you need is a different crown race... $15 and you're set.

    What they said ^^ I love my Heckler, there is not much it can't do for a very good price. With a good platform shock in the rear, it pedals very well in the middle and small ring for me.

    The SC website still has some Heckler 6.1's left. Was wondering, if I would order a SC Heckler 6.1, could I transfer my current Rockshox Sektor RL with a cut steerer tube over. Or would you suggest that I get a new fork with an uncut steerer tube?
