    Here's my medium 08 Heckler in white... After taking most of the parts from my 07 Fuel EX8 and putting it on this frame, it weighed in at just under 31lbs, for those of you curious about the weight... Anyway, let me know what you think... Enjoy the pics!

    Not so far...

    As you can see from my pic I left my steerer tube long from my previous frame (2005 Heckler medium) and just put spacers in to make up the difference. I've ridden the bike twice now and it seems just about right. I might upgrade to a longer fork in the future but for now the 130 is working great.

    Here is my Heckler, now for sale

    I have a 2005 setup all mountain with DHX5 and full XTR/XT, spared no expesne. I have enjoyed it for the last three years, it was a great upgrade from the Blur Classic I was riding. But I am ready for a new ride. Call me @ (949) 2925-9224 or email me to get two dozen hi-res pictures of all the details

    just test rode a heckler at my lbs, totally fell in love with it. now comes the option of choosing the colors. guys which do you think will be a better combination. gangreen, or the anodised black. i will be using a red CK hub and either a van 36 or pike 454. heard the anodised paintjob are more lasting than the powdercoated jobs.

    Hi, good choice! Go with the Anodized Colors: they are more durable than the powercoated.

    For CUP... If you do like one of the powdercoated colors, you could use Racer's tape to protect the areas of the frame that would be exposed to paint chips, etc. As for your red CK hub, that would look nice on the powdercoat white. But if you do go with the gangreen, it would be X-mas for you every ride...

    Just my $0.02... Good luck with your color choice!

    To all heckler owners,

    is there a rear fender for the heckler that somewhat looks alike the v10's fender?

    Why would you need one? There is a seat tube between the tyre and shock on a Heckler.

    My 08 PC White Heckler arrived today. But.... the LBS screwed up my order because I paid for one with a DHX 5.0 coil but they've got the fork I wanted, a 32 vanilla. I've to wait for another week for it. Not happy at all. It's just D AM kit w/ some changes like Chris King headset, Juicy 7's, thomson elite x4 stem, thomson elite post, dmr v12 mag pedals and planning to change the handlebars to a Race Face Next XC SL low risers. What do you think? I'm a noob.

    Over a year after I first placed the order for a Heckler (I canceled that order when SC couldn't come up with a bike after 5 months) I finally have a one in my garage. It's a basic D AM package with one upgrade (DHX 5 coil), medium, with Azonic Accelerator pedals. I picked it up last night and had it out around Mt Diablo this morning. A nice step up from my old Jamis Dakar, the Heckler climbs better than I expected. I'll have to get used to the dynamics of this bike, but the first descent down Diablo was pretty fun...

    It's whatever comes standard on the D AM package, which I believe is 90mm (though I'm not 100% positive.) After the first real ride I realized that the stem is too short for me (I'm 5'11 and went with a medium based on the way it felt at the LBS), so I'm going to get a longer stem. The first review of the Heckler in Mt Bike Action knocked SC for having too short of stems on the bikes, so it would be wise for you to check yours out at the LBS when you pick it up.

    you should flip your dhx 5 around....it's a lot easier to get to the pro pedal adjustment for when you're dialing it in....just reach down and it's right there...seems like a ***** to get to where it's at now...at least for on the fly adjustments...

    I really thought it was just an honest mistake they put it that way. I emailed SC and Fox and they said it's ok. I'm thinking of keeping it as it is for now. Everything's set already for my weight, since I'm a noob I don't want to mess it up by trying to fix it and it looks odd but cool.

    Here she is fresh stripdown and grease. Oh and a new 09 Talas 36 RC2. I spent a while trying to justify the cost of this fork, but what a fork. Gave me much more confidence on the DH sections today. Next for a PU|SH RP23 upgrade, worth it?

    Catnash,

    Looks good I just ugraded my Heckler with a PUSH'ed Pike 454 on Friday and I tried it out yesterday and it was a great to upgrade form a Tora 318 to a Pike just a tad taller and felt good in the rough. I might PUSH my RP23 but I keep thinking about just getting a DHX-C or Roco TST coil ? and replacing my RP23 all together.
    2007'ish Heckler and 2006 Chameleon
    If anyone needs the help of a prototype/custom machinist let me know.

    Yeah, didnt mean for pics side by side. Keith, same here really could easily see a coil on there, but I do like the thought of the Pushed RP23, Just trying to work out what to ask them.

    Are there any marking or serial numbers on the frame that show what year it is?

    If all goes well I should be picking up my 08 liquid blue medium heckler in a week, and just want to be able to double check little things.

    Nothing that states 07 08, you will know if its the latest one anyway, with the swoopy rear.

    The 2007 and 2008 models look very similar to me...I do notice that where the rear half of the frame meets the rear shock...the 2008 model has a bigger triangle space.

    Just FYI, Santa Cruz doesn't change frames every year like most bike manufacturers. So there isn't automatically a difference between 08 and 09 frames.
    (I don't remember when the newest Heckler frame came out, but to give an example the new blurLT came out a few months ago in between a "model year" like
    most bike manufacturers, and the new Nomad frame was just recently unveiled, SC just releases them when they are ready. Plus their production cycle is so
    slow that it wouldn't work for them to be trying to update their frames every year with a "forced" change )

    Usually when a change happens you read about it here or in a bike mag like when they put a dent under the top tube to add shock clearance on the frame design before this one.
    But since the big change to the swoopy frame I haven't heard of any other changes...???

    Perhaps you are seeing a difference between frame sizes???

    I don't think I am seeing a difference between frame sizes. But I do think you said what I wanted to hear. More or less, the 07-08 models are the swoopy frame, which is the 6 inch travel. correct?

    That is what matters. The older model with 5.5 inch travel was not swoopy.

    The smalls have the straight top tube, which also throws off the look a little bit.

    This is in the mountains above Prali / Italy /Western Alps, at about 2500 m. We're pretty lucky here with high-altitude trails

    Well, it's lighter if nothing else. And cheap. I used to ride with one chainring in front and a regular 11/34t cassette, but lately I installed a front derailleur and a granny ring. I didn't need any bigger ratios, but I was suffering with a single 34t chainring in steep climbs. Now I have a 24t and 32t + 12/27t cassette, which gives me the few small gears I was previously missing and a nice tight set of ratios. I think generally mtb's have way too many gears and I can't think of any use for a 42 or a 44t. I much rather have a bashring for protection.

    Oh, and one advantage with a road cassette is I'm able to use a super short cage rear derailleur, which obviously has better clearance.
