    First ride on the new '10 Heckler yesterday at City Park Austin, TX. Most fun I've had on two wheels- ever! Came from an '06 Giant Trance...what a huge difference.

    Q: I felt a little tall at the handle bars. There are multiple spacers under the stem and the stem seemed a little long. Is this on par for this type of bike? The previous owner was 6'3" and i'm 5'11". Could this be that he needed this setup due to his longer stretch? What are some setup tips for stem and spacing? I don't do DH, mainly all mountain and XC around Central Texas.

    Yeah, the stem definitely looks a bit on the long side. Also, you could remove a spacer or two on the steer tube to lower the bars a little. With all the spacers you have there, I'm certain you can find the right height for your stem.

    I'm guessing that the previous owner rode more xc type terrain or was more of a roadie than mtb rider...
    The secret to mountain biking is pretty simple. The slower you go the more likely it is youíll crash.

    You will love it...i only have 2 rides on mine and couldn't be happier. Played in the mud yesterday and it held up well. Currently running Mavic 819s on Hope Pro Evo 2. Going to make the switch to Stans ZTR Flows for increased footprint/traction. Thoughts?

    Not sure if this should go here. But when i bought the bike home, did a test on the rear and noticed on dropping there's a knocking sound from the frame.
    For the life of me, i've been trying to pin point the source but to no hope!

    I picked one up off a guy this past fall, and the bearings needed replaced. It had a knocking sound coming from somewhere in the back, and after replacing the bearings, pivot axle, etc. the sound went away. I got the propack from santa cruz and it definitely helped.

    stripped down the pivot bearings at the bikeshop. No issues, the bolt is also in a piece no crack or breakage.. Im still having a hard time figuring out where the clank sound is coming from..

    I had cracking sound and I managed to solve it by removing and cleaning replaceable rear dropout/hanger. It seems that sand particles or something like that came between dropout and swingarm...

    try that!

    Bro Cro Xc, just did it, clean as a whistle... I have this uncanny feeling it could be coming from the shock itself. What other way can i test it without having to find a replacement shock?

    mybe there is worn bushing slop going on. or mounting hardware...

    Stand over rear wheel, lock tire on the ground with you legs and try to move front triangle up and down (grab it on saddle or seat post). Do you feel any small movement? There should not be any...

    BTW, rear shock can produce all kind of unusual sounds when exposed to low temperatures. If you are in cold climate area, leave bike on room temperature for 24 hours and then check for sounds.

    Hope you'll solve it
    I guess every biker has problems with noise at least once in a lifetime

    check everything that could move... even bottle cage mounting screws and sockets (if you have any)

    Edit: Some details on the knock sound.

    Visited the wonderful guys who brings in Nicolai here and they narrowed the sound to be due to rear shock topping out.

    Need to make appointment with shock distributor to have that serviced soon.

    Thanks for everyones help here!

    Current solution lowering rebound adjustment till i can get it fixed.

    choose the "bottom bracket mount", cheap and works great!

    Kind of baffles me that the heckler still doesn't have iscg on it. Would be the perfect bike for the Hammerschmidt!
