    Another one

    Brand new M-sized Heckler.
    Lyric Solo Air, DHX 5, Avid Elixir CR, XT drivetrain, Funn Fatboy AM handlebar and AM stem, Acros headset. Said to weigh about 14,8kg.
    Wheelset (Blackjack Sniper DH) is an interim solution, because ordered Mavic Crossline weren't available by now. Same thing with seatpost: the final version will have a Kindshock adjustable seatpost.



    The very first impression from my first ride yesterday is: this is an awesome bike. Climbs steep ascents without need for an adjustable fork. I didn't even notive any significant pedal feedback on bumpy uphills. Looks and feels bombproof, yet handles quick and precise. A masterpiece amongst the single pivot bikes for sure.

    I was just being jealous because my heckler doesn't have such good looks!

    Nice bike...

    All these pristine clean hecklers . . . it's a little unnerving.




    I'm expecting to give it another coat of earth this weekend.

    I already posted in this thread...

    ...but I have made huge changes in the last couple of months. I pulled off the Rock Shox J2, the Magura HS-33's, and the Chris King Classic wheels. I have replaced them with a Marzocchi 33, Avid Code (185mm/160mm) brakes, and an XT wheelset. I also added the Azonic pooky pedals and swapped the polished CK headset for a black one. Before anyone freaks out, I have not ditched the CK wheelset. I am saving the money to reshell them for discs and will put them back on the bike as soon as possible. I can truly appreciate the CK hubs now after having them and going back to the XT. The noise is worth the engagement.

    Anyways, on with the pictures. Mine is dirty too, unfortunately they are lame basement pictures.

    That's a sweet looking ride! Why change cranks? The XT you have is outstanding. The octalink system works but there are durability issues. Once you tighten the Truvativ crank there is aluminum in the crank-arm that conforms to the spline (octalink). Once you remove your crank arm a number of times it becomes hosed and will give you problems. Stick with what you have. Shimano cranks are second to none.

    thanks, masonmax! really have no problems with the XT's and agree that their 2nd to none in durability and shifting performance. just thought about changing to the new truvativs because they we're black! pretty lame huh...

    My new-to-me ride

    Came with a fairly standard 07/08 build kit, fox vanilla rlc, and mechanical discs. Moab demo bike, so a few dings and scratches. It will get a new lease on life here in the South East. I had to swap out the fork since I am over 210lb and fox doesn't make a spring big enough for my arse The brakes are another weight related change. The bars and stem? I dunno, I just don't like how much flex the xc components have. The 25.4mm bars and stem are a throwback to 2003, but closeout sales make that stuff too cheap to pass up.

    XL
    Rock Shox Revelation 140 dual air
    Avid Juicy 5 185mm F&R
    Easton Monkeybars, EA70 hi rise
    Azonic shorty 100mm stem (not installed yet)
    LX/XT drivetrain
    2.2/2.4 AM tire setup

    About 30lb as it sits

    Me:
    About 240lb and 6'3"

    Hi,
    I really love the silver ano color!
    I sometimes wish I had shelled out the extra bucks for the silver ano.
    But black powdercoat is decent also.

    Once my new digicam arrives Ill post some pics of my build.

    Greetings Znarf

    hey thanks, but actually it's industrial grey powdercoat. i have a friend who works @ SANTA CRUZ who owned this before me & he got this done in that grey with the black rear triangle. i bought the frame from him for $600 bones. can't wait to see your build though!

    Hi,

    =)
    I actually really meant the silver ano bike. But grey is fine too!

    Id like to strip my Heckler frame, just coat the raw alloy with a clearcoat.
    I love the look of those Cannondale raw frames.

    But then, at the moment the PC is okay. I have to say that the black powdercoat- job is soso quality wise.
    My frame is almost new and I take good care of it, it has a million of tiniest scratches though...

    Greetings Znarf

    Just finished building up the new ride. Building her up for a bomb proof all mountain machine.

    Here she is. A thing of beauty. Still waiting on my new cranks (Stylo AM) and saving up some money to grab a new seat.

    Comments/suggestions/criticism welcome.

    New components
    1) Frame 2009 Heckler Lg w/ DHX 5.0
    2) Headset: Crank Brothers Opium DH
    3) Stem: Race Face AM
    4) Welgo MG-1's (will look nicer sitting on new black cranks)

    Old and busted
    1) LX cranks w/ custom 1x9 chain retention system (getting replaced soon)
    2) X9 rear shifter and middle caged rear derailluer
    3) 2007 Marz Z1 (heavy but feels so good)
    4) Easton Havoc AM wheelset
    5) Nevegal 2.35 rear, blue groove 2.35 front
    6) Cheapo seatpost and busted ugly banana seat
    7) XT brakes.

    Wants
    1) New seat

    Here she is! I need a good scale, but right now she is tipping in around 32-33lbs.

    Divere, that is a sweet build but that picture has got to go. Get picasa, it is free and easy to resize images so that they actually fit the screen

    BTW, how is the vivid? I think it looks like a good shock, just wondering if it has enough range to minimize bob and still be compliant on the small stuff.

    Does the Heckler still climb pretty well even with one of those Fox 36's? I don't know if I should get a Pike 454, or a 36 Van R.
