    Niiiiiice. Now I'm kinda thinking I should've gone with that green one instead of the black. I don't think it would've arrived any sooner. Still waiting for my '07 with the base D AM setup but my LBS says it's gonna be here next week. I'll be sure to post some pics when I get out on the trail.

    Here's my new (to me) medium orange Heckler. 32 lbs of goodness.



    I replaced the old stickers with some 2007 model frame decals and it really help.



    Hockey tape for the chainstay protector. I highly recommend this stuff if your tired of the boring ol' Lizard Skin option.



    What the....?! Specialized bar and stem on an SC??? Blasphemy! Eh, it's good stuff and was priced right.....free.

    I think I will name her....Creamsicle. Yeah.

    To be honest I only have one street ride and one good trail ride on it so far, I am still experimenting with the setup and will admit my riding style is probably pretty tame compared to most people. I started with the Santa Cruz recommended settings for a 200lb rider and have only played with the rebound and propedal so far (felt better staying close to SC settings). First impression: It feels firm (in a good way) and rides high in its travel. It smoothed out the trail fine, and was using its travel, even though I did not really feel it moving (my previous bikes FSR suspension felt more active). This is not necessarily a negative, just getting use to the single pivot. I still need to experiment more with the settings and pressures, but I am confident I can get it setup fine. Sorry I can't give a better review at this time.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I apologize for the crappy picture (disposable camera), but here's a pic of mine and a friends new hecklers at the trailhead of one of our favorite local rides. Mine is the Liquid Blue and his is the white. Pretty much the same bikes, except mine is all air sprung and his is all coil-- its kind of fun getting to compare different versions of the same bike on the same rides!

    Bringing the breaking Heckler news...



    available spring 2007
    Heckleriffic!
    “Sweet and simple” are words that usually have some sort of double meaning when strung together. They damn with faint praise – “Sure is a sweet dog you got there. Shame it’s so dang ugly...” “These directions are so simple, a monkey could understand them...” But in the case of the new Heckler, the third and final member of our single pivot revival, those words are perfect.

    All the lovable traits of Hecklers past are retained, with some new tweaks added to make a good thing even better. The stout 6069 aluminum front triangle features advanced gussets reinforcing the headtube without adding boat anchor weight. The shaped downtube leaves enough space for any single crown fork to fit with room to spare. The rear swingarm now pivots on an optimally placed, 15mm diameter axle, rides on lifetime guaranteed bearings and coughs up 5.9-inches of travel. A new replaceable rear derailleur hanger sits independently of the rear dropout, and all the frame components can be disassembled or put back together with a few allen wrenches.


    Light & durable advanced 6069 gussets
    It’s an all-season, all-terrain all-rounder. It’s a tough duty trailbike that can be ridden hard and put away wet and always be ready for more. It’s sweet, like alpine singletrack on the first warm day after the snow has melted. It’s simple, like a real sharp ax. Sweet, simple, and proud of it.

    Replaceable rear derailleur hanger

    Plenty of tire clearance
    # Burly 15mm main pivot, lifetime bearing guarantee!
    # 5.9” rear travel, 6.4lb frame and shock weight (medium, Fox Float R shock)
    # Clearance for 8” brake rotors
    # Updated geometry designed around 140mm forks, able to take up to 170mm
    # Super clean replaceable derailleur hanger
    # Recessed, threaded shock mounts and tool friendly design
    # Available in choice of five powdercoat, two anodized, and one polished finish


    Production models expected to start shipping in April, Santa Cruz Bicycles will be accepting orders after January 15th.

    I have had mine for about 3 months now - bought it second hand but what a buy! £850; no wear on the gears. Frame had some marks from the roof rack but nothing roblematic.

    Got it with a 5th element (450lb spring, I'm 11 stone) and it seems to be perfect. Can't quite bottom it out on big drops etc, but it gives me a good swooshy sounds as it extends after obstacles that I find very reassuring.

    The forks may get changed as I would rather have some 130mm bombers on there, maybe even pikes/lyrik u-turns, but for now the 130rlc's are fine.

    Can't believe how well the heckler pedals, faster than any hardtail up and down.
