Finally, after months of research and reading forums and reviews on many sites, I ordered and got my Heckler R AM bike. I have gone for a couple of rides in Nappy as well as the Santa Cruz area and the bike is a blast. I had to wait though for me to get back to Spain, wher I am from, in order to actually evaluate the bike on my regular trails (Gava, Castelldefels, Garraf, Begues area)
So far I have gone for 2 short an 2 longer rides, totaling some 100 miles and the Heckler did even better then I expected. Although out of shape after a 5 weeks vacation, I was kind of able to keep up with my buddies on the climbs (very long and steep, for those that know the area will know what I am talking about) while I showed them taillight on the downhills.
A first I was afraid that the bike would be too heavy (I come from a light Cannondale XC hardtail), but found that geometry and suspension locking more then compensated the weight difference.
I am very pleased to discuss any of your experiences with this build and ways to improve it.
Hope to hear (read) from you.
