    Bumping this thread..but anyone know if any retailers are still selling the non 27.5 Heckler frames?

    My LBS was selling a 26" Heckler frame from a couple of years back. It still had the 1 1/8" head tube and 10mm rear axle. They asked 700Ä for it which is like 50% off. Nearly ended up buying it as it was so cheap. But I didn't want another single-pivot bike - I already had a 2007 Heckler.

    First Pic: completely stock heckler 6.1 with RAM kit:
    (26" wheels, straight 1 1/8" headtube, steepish angles, no ISCG tabs. I guess it's obsolete now but ask me if I give a f***... heck no!

    I have a similar setup - Marz 44 RC3 Ti and Roco WC with Marz spring (non-Ti) on the back.

    I had a Float front and Float CTD rear that came stock on my Heckler frame last year.

    I swapped out the Float front for the Marz and really dug it so I went for the Roco on the back a few months ago.

    What I have now is a lean mean killing machine.

    The Roco does weight a bit more than the CTD but not massively so and the overall feel of the Roco is just all around better than the Float CTD.

    Knowing what I know now I don't think I would ever go back to Float/Float on this frame...

    Bro, your bike is equally nice, if not more. Looks pretty slack too... I had to short shock mine just to get it to 66.5 degrees.

    Still need to resolve the pivot constantly loosening up... or maybe just stop going sidewayz... lol!

    ron m, did you chrome the frame yourself? If so, what was the process? I'd love to do something like that, whether its the whole frame or just some parts.

    My "old" 2007 Heckler

    That isn't old, this is old ............
    Here's my 02 model which is still my go-to bike.

    I'll upgrade one day but honestly don't have a big urge to do it. Still fun to ride which is all that matters. I just upgrade bits' n pieces.
