    Some pics of mine... one as it is now with '05 Z1 FR1s, the other with '03 Super Ts. Definitely prefer it with the Z1s - still nice and raked, but the ETA function really helps with long climbs. Plus the front end weight is significantly less. Love it! Makes a great all round bike, although it's a little more fun on the downs than the ups

    What are those discbrakes with the red spot? Mechanical discs?

    A lot of you guys seem to have these, but I´ve never seen them over here in Europe.

    Old School Heckler

    So am I the only one with an original Heckler. Here is a pic of 1997 Heckler. It is no longer with me. It died in 2003 after many years of serious riding. It had a crack in the seat tube just above the bottom bracker. It was a good 6 years. I got a Superlight on the crash replacement deal from SC.

    Enjoy the pics.

    Those are yellow Corratec tires on it if you were wondering.

    Great looking bikes guys.

    I have the dinosaur of the bunch. My bike is a 96 I think, can't remember as it has been a while. Back when I got this bad boy it was one of the best bikes for DH at the time with 4 inches. The good old days.

    (I know I need to get the smaller mrp chain gaurd with a 38 tooth.)

    An all red Heckler in Red Rock Country. I rode there once and would have really liked to have had a few days to explore more trails. How does the Romic work on your Heckler?

    Boy, that bike sure is red!

    Ya, I would think bottoming would be a problem with that Romic on there. Hecklers falling rate+conventional damper=bottoming?

    Romic's aren't conventional dampeners, It uses a twin tube design to mimic the advantage most shocks have of using an external reservoir used to control bottom out. Though it's disadvantage is that this feature is not user adjustable. If you want to change the progressiveness of a Romic, you have to send it in. Which is without a doubt a major disadvantage compared to other shocks. But it's no different than running a swinger 3-way, (though a Romic's really a 2-way since your compression is "slaved" to the SPV) and the advantage is said to be lighter weight because these shocks don't have the external reservoir?

    I was all fired up to try an air shock to lighten up the bike, but have since thrown that idea to the back burner as my Heckler has been lightened up enough that it's become an amazing all-mountain ride. The only thing I wish the Romic had was a bar mounted control for the compression/SPV adjuster.

    Besides a bar adjuster, I don't think I would replace this shock for any reason other than weight. It's been really amazing so far...

    Here's my 2004. I need to swap that Talas for something a little beefier. I might get a new fork for the park bike and use my Firefly or thinking I might just go Z1. Either way, I was a die hard HT guy and this bike got me playing for the other team!

    To have more travel in the back.
    Anyone noticed the difference, would it be worth a few bucks?

    Hey Znarf!

    It is deffinitely worth it! I can really notice the difference in travel on big hits and drops. I recommend the DHX 5.0 Coil if you upgrade. It is the most amazing shock. I've used Swingers, 5th Elements and then the DHX and it is by far the best of the lot with a lot of on the trail adjustability!

    Been building the heckler over the winter while recovering from bike injuries. Bike now includes SDG I-beam post and seat, and Heim 3 three chainring guide. Not sure about the weight, probably about 32lbs. Hoping it will be a good Super D bike in the summer.

    Components include:

    98 Z1 BAM with variable spring rate swap
    28 spoke tubeless DeeMax
    Easton Monkeylite DH/Easton MG stem
    Race face Atlas cranks/bb
    SRAM ( except for the front der....freaking shimano)
    Hayes off 1998 bullit
    Heim 3 (not in picture) guide
    Arrow tubeless 2.5's

    LOL. NIce set-up on the french Heckler. How does rear shock perform on climbing? What rear shock did you have on the Heckler before you got the ROCO?

    A real Heckler? Or something more sinister?

    My first Heckler.
    But having compared it with others here I notice that I do not have a SC decal on the headtube gusset.
    Everything else seems to stack up though.

    What do you reckon?

    This is my 2004 Med Heckler 5th element, Marz Z1 FR fork,Crossmax XL with Blue Groove 2.35, XT, Thomson, Easton, King,Hayes with Razor Rock levers
    Its a pretty good pedaler, i've been pleased. I actually traded my 02 bullit frame with a LOT of miles on it for the Heckler frame that had less than 100 miles on it.

    The decals are applied right after powdercoating. They are put on by hand and not by a machine. The installer likely just overlooked the gusset when applying stickers... Or the bike shop / previous owner removed them for some reason... You can order new decals direct from the Santa Cruz website if it really bothers you. I have an extra set of decals on hand so I can repaint the bike in a couple years.

    Not having the decals doesn't bother me at all (just more worried that my 2nd hand bargain had a (not so) good reason for being a bargain!)
    So
    rather than having a dodgy look alike - I actually have a rather rare example

    Thank you...

    No noodle here. Mine is about a month old and I love it. If your considering one, put a new thread up here in the SC forums and ask all the questions you want. There is a HUGE Heckler following, and I'm sure you will be convinced on buying one after reading what people have to say about them.

    I did post a question whether I should get a Heckler or a Foes FXR 2:1. And About 98% of the responces were that I go for the Heckler. I had posts saying that the Heckler is a tried-and-true bike that can handle almost anything and have zero problems.

    There are alot of nice Hecklers here, but for me, this one just does it! It's not mine but it still has to be one of the most beautiful Hecklers to roll the face of the earth. I've been thinking about a similar setup myself. White is right!

    29 Palms

    So that is what 29 Palms looks like. Are you in the military? Seems like I remember a base being out there.

    No, I'm not in the military anymore. I do work at the HUGE base here running a Virtual Combat Convoy Trainer for the Marines.
