    Thanks, I end up looking at my bike more than the TV and just think about riding.

    That's what I thought. I could use that on my San Andreas. But wouldn't it help only a tiny bit? Can you please explain more.

    Really wanting to pull the trigger on a Heckler as used frames of only a year or two can be had for awesome deals.

    My questions for owners would be...

    How well does this bike pedal? I know the suspension is super simple proven design, but how well does this thing really pedal?

    How stiff is the front end with only the 1 1/8? Do you miss a tapered design when running a 36 fork or is it stiff enough?

    Since this bike is not VPP, how stiff is the rear without the through axle?

    Anyone running 1x9 or 1x10 with a BB mounted chainguide? I looked through about 15 pages of this thread and everyone seems to running a FD. I'm interested in swapping my 1x9 from my Chameleon over to the Heckler with my MRP Lopes guide.

    I'm running 1x9. Using salsa 36t bash and a 32t ring with an N gear jump stop. Not the best of photos, but a chance to show off the bike!

    Yup

    I had my Heckler setup as a 1x9 and 10. I used both a Gamut P20 bb mount guide and a E.Thirteen LG1+ with a bb mount adapter. I liked the LG1 better as it was a bit more quiet. Both worked great though.

    Here is an earlyish picture of it.



    Cheers,

    Here's a picture of my well used and dirty Heckler. Super fun bike. It's not the fastest or smoothest bike out there, but it's one of the most fun! Super versatile.

    I like it! That's how my Nickel is going to be. White and black, with some red parts here and there.

    My 12 Satin Clear frame just showed up with a Float RL on it. I'm looking to get a Kashima coated RP23 or the new CTD.

    Can anyone enlighten me on the correct rear shock tune for this bike? I'm 145lbs and ride AM. All of these different tunes on the shocks are really confusing me.

    The CTD's list a climb tune. The RP23 has rebond, velocity and boost tune. Help!

    The best shock for me and i think for most of us is a coil shock, particularly i am using a vivid r2c with enduro needle bearings.

    Very nice Heckler. It just looks 'right'.

    1x10? How's it working for you?

    Didn't know you could get the Kashima shock.

    It's a 1x9 SRAM X9 setup. I just ordered the frame from SC, the bikes dont have a kashima option. I replaced the stock Float RL Evo with a new RP23. The bike handles flawlessy and sits at 28.5 pounds. Im super happy with it. Ill post more pics and a spec list here this weekend.
