    I was out there for small computer systems school. Pretty cool place. Joshua Tree is amazing. Sway are you a Marine? If you run into a Gunnery Sgt Horton tell him Kilburn says hello.

    Nope, I'm not a Marine, but I know a lot here. What does Gunny Horton do?

    Make sure you throw some protective tape where it counts! My white heckler looked very brown in some spots after a few rides! Looks damn sexy! Have fun!

    Protective Film

    Hey that's a really nice Heckler. I know you are going to love it!

    As for protective film, you will want to put it anywhere where the cables come into contact with the frame. I would also put some on the chain/seatstays where the heal of your foot with sometimes rub against them. Then, put some under the bottom bracket and you may want to put some underneath the down tube and on top of the top tube.

    That feature is great for climibing, but beware. That fork has a serious '"clunking" issue.

    Mine was fine when new, but apparently the TST bladder fills with air over time and causes it to clunk/chatter over highspeed bumps/choppy stuff.

    It's beginning to drive me absolutley nuts Although I made a vow never to buy another RockShox item, I'm thinking about getting a Pike instead.

    new fork and stuff

    just recently put on my new fork and wheels. use to have a manitou minute but now an 06 pike 426 and azonic outlaw wheels.
    also just ordered a king/mavic 823 wheelset so the outlaws can go back on my hardtail. I was a little skeptical about the silver on silver but i think she looks pretty sweet.

    Silver on Silver

    Man, that is a sweet looking Heckler. I like the silver fork on the silver frame. It looks like they were made to go together!

    Good job! Heckler Updates

    New shifters(rapid fire is way better than dual control), new lock on grips, new brake levers, and new XTR shifter cables. Very happy

    What color is your son's Heckler? It looks like a gray. I just really want a gray bike!

    And to all of you, what would the real difference between anodized and powdercoated frames?

    Am I the only one confused as to what the build kits are on the Santa Cruz site? It doesn't list components anywhere!

    Im planning to build a Heckler with this same fork and similar components.....how does it climb??? does it feel unbalanced with the rear travel(150mm front vs. 143mm rear)??, how does the geometry feel for an all around bike?? and do you know its total weight??sorry for asking so many questions; cheers!!!!

    Interesting....I knew a 2,25 stroke shock could be used to provide 143mm but not that..does it void the garanty??

    2.5" stroke on a Heckler?

    I've never heard of anyone running a 2.5" stroke shock on a Heckler. A Bullit, yes, but not a Heckler. Are you sure about that? I have a 2.25" stroke DHX Coil on mine and it is a perfect match. I've used 2" 5th Element Coil and a 2" stroke 4-Way Air and they both worked very well too although it was a pretty tight fit for the 4-Way Air.

    I don't think you'd get anything more than the standard (for a Heckler) 7.875" i2i shock on the rear. An 8" i2i shock may squeeze in, but it would be a very tight fit and not something I'd want to try myself.

    shock length of bullit

    so the heckler shock is 7.87 w/ a 2.25 stroke. What is the bullit? for some reason I thought it was a 7.87 too but also a 2.5 stroke. That means they would exist right? you could put a 2.5 on a heckler?

    It was like Christmas today! I get an email from the LBS that my frame came in. 2006 Santa Cruz Heckler XL Ano. Black. Only took 11 days from the day it was ordered to get here.

    THEN, I get a call from buddy of mine that I work that my fork was just dropped off by UPS. 2006 Marzocchi 66 RC2X (white). I'll pick it up when I go in to work this evening. Can't wait to get this built up!

    Thats at the Yellow Trail, Baguio City, Philippines.

    BTW, that bamboo foot bridge is impossible to ride. Its slippery as Tri-flow, aside from the fact that there are parts where wheels will fall in between the bamboo. I had to be very careful just walking my bike over it.

    Here's another.

    Sweet Heckler

    Hey, that is a sweet Heckler. I love that Trans Blue color. I also had a Trans Blue Heckler but it was a little small for me and my daughter outgrew it as well. I recently sold it and the guy who bought it is in love. I now have a large Heckler that was Gunmetal Grey up till a few days ago. I've been stripping the finish and am polishing the frame. You have no idea how much work this has turned out to be but I know I'll love it when it's all completed. Hopefully this weekend I'll be able to post some pics of my beloved heckler with a blinding polished finish.

    How do you like that Gravity Dropper Seat Post? What feedback can you offer?

    I've always wondered how much work went into polishing a frame.

    Can you explain what you're doing, and how you're doing it? How long has it really been taking?

    I've got one of the midnight blue Hecklers (03). While it's a beautiful color, the paint's wearing thin in some places. It doesn't really bother me, but I've thought about how awesome those polished hecklers look.

    How are you going to polish in the tight areas, like behind the main gussets on the neck?

    Also, are you going to finish it somehow with some sort of "clear coat" to prevent oxidation?

    Gravity Dropper on the Heckler

    Thanks for the compliment. Sounds like you've got a rewarding project on your hands when you finish. It'll be nice to see the pictures when your done. The Gravity Dropper is expensive, but just one ride with it and you'll know it was worth it. There are different drop options. I went with the straight 4" drop with remote. It's been great to get the seatpost out of the way when going downhill and pop it back up for the climb out. When you are off the bike, there is a little play in the saddle, but when you're riding, I don't notice it.

    I've not really kept a record of how much time I've spent stripping the frame but I probably have spent 10-15 hours so far and probably have another 6-8 hours to go. It is a very time consuming process. I've been using a citrus paint stripper that I picked up at Home Depot. I let it sit for about 15 minutes and then I start scrapping off the powder coat with a plastic putty knife. It has been kind of trial and error so I am getting faster as I go. The first paint stripper I used was not very effective. I was also scrapping off the old stripper with steel wool pad. Unfortunately I rubbed some grooves into the flat sides of swing arm tubes. So, I've now been wetsanding those groved areas flat again. I used a dremel tool with some metal buffing wheels and that is how I removed the old powder coat from the tight areas. I intend to polish all the tight areas on the frame by hand and the larger areas will get touched up by hand. I will polish all the tight areas using my Dremel along with some of their buffin wheels.

    she's finished.

    I call her Kate after after that girl from transporter 2 Kate Nauta. i attached a pic if you havent seen her before.

    one look at her and you just KNOW she's bad news..

    in any case I'm in love.

    Orange with the manitou four way and a sherman flick up front. still have to tune the suspension but she handles just fine. 32.5LBS with 2.5 maxxis mobsters and downhill rims and hubs? something must be wrong with the scale

    is this heckler decal on the top tube a new design? pretty neat

    Special thanks To FA Components and my local LBS All Terrra for all the help and support.

    okay, now im broke.

    Sweet Heckler

    I'd think your scale is off. I'd guess that build to be around 36lbs if those are downhill wire bead tires.

    Do you have a picture of the bike from the rear? I'd like to see how Santa Cruz placed the stickers on the back of the seat tube. The whole decal design has been updated and looks pretty cool. The new stickers match the same theme as the Nomads.

    Here is what mine looks like. All that is left is I need to run some new brake lines, get a heavier spring (on backorder), and eventually get a new set of wheels built that are a bit lighter.

    nice heckler but....

    make sure you tighten the little bolts that hold the TAS and Compression knobs on the bottom of the legs. I have the same fork. My compression knob fell off on my first ride. That fork and the Heckler make for a sweet ride.

    It's OK. I think I've got it. Laguna Coast Wilderness Park?

    Think I might have to venture down, as we'll be staying not too far from there; keep an eye out for a Welsh Heckler

    My daughter is moving down to L.A. Next month so I'm sure I'll be heading down there every 2-3 weeks. I'll definitely be checking out the riding in the LCWP. I'll be the on the polished Bay Area Heckler.

    Cool-blue Rhythm My newly polished Heckler

    Woooooo Hooooooo!!! I finally finished polishing my Heckler frame this past weekend. I built up the bike yesterday and even got to for take it for a nice ride. I said i would post pictures when the frame was finished. It turned out great but because I am a little too much of a perfectionist, it took me a very long time. Unfortunately, these pictures don't do the frame justice but I was running out of daylight when these pics were take. Anyhow, you'll get the idea. It has a very industrial look to it with those big shiney welds jumping out at you. This feature is not that visible in these pictures but more willl follow.

    Thanks!

    No, I don't plan on clear coating the frame. I'll just polish it out with Mothers Aluminum Polish every now and then. I am very happy with the way it turned out although it was a tremendous amount of work. If I did it again I'd find a place that has a chemical bath for stripping frames and pay them to remove the powder coat. Then the job would not have taken so much time. I bet I have 30 to 40 hours into the complete strip and polish job on this frame.

    sweet bike, if you don't mind, how tall are you, weight, inseam and such? I'm thinking about trading my L heckler for an XL and just use a shorter stem as you are. So I was wondering about your bikes sizing.

    Thanks

    Hello .
    I have a question for the Hecklers with a Fox Dhxair owner . as it goes? you have noticed those commentaries of which by the curve of the wheel it has problems? somebody knows something on fox dhxair that the fox company have manipulated the positive camera .they have eliminated the problem?
    Where I can find a store online where they sell cheap?

    thanks,

    Hi everybody..

    This is my heckler, with the changes i have made ...

    In a short future im going to put a e-thirteen protector, and a rear Manitou 4 way air 200x2,25", so i will have 150mm front and 145mm rear travel (I think is 6" travel) (Sorry but im spanish)
    Also im going to put at the front wheel a Maxxis high roller 2,35 UST supertaky, cos hutschinson spyder sucks ....

    As you can see i have erased the santacruz logo at the diagonal tube.

    I dont know if at USA you have the same problems, but here in spain, all the hecklers in silver anodized have the same problem, and is that the logos is getting erased for the use ...

    Santacruz says that the logos are made by laser, but as you can see its not true .....
    For the other side, i think it seems better without the logo

    Hi,
    my Heckler, Medium, the Z1FR1 is soon to be replaced through a Pike of some kind(again )




    I know the grips look abused, but have a look at those lovely custom levers

    Wow! Nice drop!
    I am scared to death of anything over 2 feet.
    Until yesterday, I had my suspension set up to use the full travel when dropping 1-2 ft. Made for very plush small bump compliance though.

    hi,
    thanks!
    Pic was taken in Karlsruhe, Germany.

    I am about to pull the Z1FR1 off and get a Pike instead, also change the wheelset to a Saint(hubs) and Mavic Ex823 tubeless combo.

    Should I do that, or keep the Sun Singletracks?

    Greetings Znarf

    Z1FR1 to Pike?

    I did the exact opposite. I exchanged a Pike Team for a Z1FR1 because I wanted a little more travel and I like the on the fly ETA feature. I know it is a little heavier but the Z1 is a really nice fork. Not to take anything away from the Pike though. Pikes are incredible forks and the Maxle is the best 20mm axle design out there. The fork I have been waiting for is the Lyrik. Perhaps mispelled but it is the new Rockshox All Mountain fork coming out. The one with the 2 Step Air is the fork for me! Can't wait.

    Hey, what's up with killing Bruno the Brown Bear? It's a shame it could not be tranquilized and moved to a wildlife refuge.

    Definitely a BIG SHAME.
    Not like its a GIGANTOSAURUS CARNIVORE, or Godzilla, it WAS a bear.
    Thats just madness at it s best.

    Regarding the Lyric. Exactly the fork Ive been waiting for. Though quite pricey and comes out in late fall or so.
    Ill get a Pike for now, next year maybe a Lyric.
    My problem with the Z1 is, even the "soft" springs(they are not so soft) are too stiff for me.
    So I am using only 110mm of travel on the trail, regardless of lowering oil levels, changing viscosity ...
    Ill just get a Pike for the softer springs and the versatility.
    But I admit that the Z1 is a very nice fork, especially for descents.

    General Lee rides again

    This is the end (mostly) result of my obsession with the Dukes of Hazzard (the old series, not the lame new movie). Anyway, this started out as an anodized black Heckler, but my obsession got the best of me. Waiting to take delivery of a Fox 36 Van RC2 for the front and a set of red King hubs, but other than that, it's ready to go.

    Yeeeeeee Haaaawww!!!!

    That's a pretty original idea sprucing up your ol' Heckler like the Gen Lee! Kind of like my John Deere inspired Bullit!

    Note the wear on the Manitou Blacks. I also have a cracked stearer tube fixed with an Azonic head lock.

    My Heckler is firmly perched between XC and Freeride. An evolution of my riding one might say.

    Mono M4 with 220mm floating rotor front. wee Mini 200mm rear.
    Fox Float RL rear. X317 on Hope XC rear (on last legs)
    DT Swiss 5.1 on hope XC front

    I briefly had some Z1 Freerides fitted that suites the geometry of the Heckler perfectly. Pitty the forks sucked. Manitou Blacks will be replaced by some Minute 2's soon.
