    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.

    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...

    Might as well add the latest look.

    Chromed frame, polished fork and wheels.

    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.

    Thanks, man! See this thread regarding the chrome job:

    What do you do when your Heckler feels stale...

    Shock: Fox DHX 5.0 Coil
    Crankset: Raceface Turbine w/ bash guard

    Headset: 1.5 degree angle set Ofanaim/ Cane Creek S-3
    Shifter: Deore (stock)
    Derailers front: SLX (stock)
    Derailers Shimano XT Shadow
    Brakes: Shimano XT
    Front Wheel/ Tire: Mavic SX/ Maxxis Minion DH (tubeless)- Gravity Rides
    Rear Wheel/ Tire: Mavic SX/ Maxxis High Roller (tubeless)- Gravity Rides
    Front Wheel/ Tire: Mavic SX/ Continental Mountain King (tubeless)- XC rides
