    Picked my new Heckler up yesterday

    I picked my new Heckler up yesterday. It looks fantastic!! Hopefully will get the chance to ride it later today / tomorrow morning. I had a Nomad before this, but just felt that it was a little too much for what i do most of the time, but ideal for the one weekend every year when we go to Les Gets / Morzine in the French Alps. I think the Heckler will be much more suitable for day to day duties, but will also cope with the lift assisted trips.

    Anyway, here's the spec:
    Large frame in PC white
    Fox RP23
    Fox Vanilla 36 RC2
    Mainly XT throughout, but with splashes of XTR
    Avid Juicy 7 ( I had Codes on the Nomad so I'm interested to see how the Juicy's perform)
    Halo Freedom wheels with Panaracer Rampage tyres
    Maverick Speedball, not fitted in the photo
    Easton DH carbon bar
    Thompson 90mm stem.

    I'll post agin when i've had a ride

    for prosterity

    Absolutely loving the new Heckler it's a hard decision whether to ride my 4X which loves singletrack or wheel out the Heckler which can be run over the rough a lot harder....but still rail singletrack too.......fastest time though for my trail is still owned by the 4X.

    I'm trying my best though to beat it with the Heckler

    Hi guys. Are you satisfied with your Heckler's suspension performance? I awaited a bit more comfort (OK, much more comfort) compared to the Reign (for example).This is my first fullsuspension bike. I run a FOX RP 23 shock wich is set up according to manual. I also noticed I often use full travel. What do you think?

    Ciao tutti,
    the rim are Sun Ringle Singletrack Camo rims (they are green camo and winter camo in grey color). My bikeshop unmount these rim from whole wheel, they use to sell them with deore hub. So the wheels have been unmount then after rebuild with DT swiss spoke and Hope hub

    You can find these wheel here : http://www.mtbikers.com/StoreFront/p...=P&brandId=118

    How tall are you and what size heckler are you going for in the 08 model? I'm hoping to order on in the next week or so and I"m leaning towards a size large. I'm 5'10, 175lbs. I rode an 07 large and it felt ok just thought I would get some more opinions. Thanks and awesome pics of all the hecks

    I ride a 07 Heckler 5, size L. I am 184 cm tall and I my weight is 73-75 kg without camelbag and other stuff. I think L size is perfect for me.

    The green with camo wheels looks awesome Burak.

    persing: I came from an Orange Patriot running a Vanilla RC coil shock which was a lot more active and seemed to soak up the smaller stuff with greater ease. However, the platfrom on the RP23 I have now on the Heckler makes it a much better pedaller. I only ever need the ProPedal set to number 1 and often I don't bother at all. For me the pedalling coupled with the smaller cockpit make it a more usable and manovourable bike. I always make sure I get full travel at least once on a ride. If not I'd say you're running too much pressure in the shock (I currently run about 175 psi). I'm 6ft 1inch and weigh 14.5 stone and ride a large.

    The Reign is a multi pivot frame so it will always be more active and less prone to pedal induced feedback and chain stretch. The Hekler has been labelled the "single pivot survivor" because it attempts to minise these attributes through pivot placement and platform shock technology. However, it will never be as supple as the more modern linkage designs. Maybe you need to adjust your riding to adapt- keep in the saddle a bit more perhaps to keep the suspension more active.

    Another white one

    hey everyone
    been so busy riding it I haven't had chance to show her off yet - till now

    I ride mainly xc/trail and wanted that elusive do-it-all bike and,as you can see I tried to keep the weight down wherever poss.
    So far I could not be happier with this bike - downhill is so much fun and climbing is a breeze. Forget about the single pivot sceptics - my previous two bikes where light fsr linkage designs (scott genius & carbon 07 Spesh enduro) and there aint much difference. I strongly believe that climbing on a full susser is more to do with technique than linkage design. I'm sure plenty will disagree but just my opinion.

    anyhow, I know white is soooo vain but hell, don't she look purdy ?

    Nice bicycle, i saw also on mtb-forum.it. I like your set up except the DHX5 Air, on my heckler i prefer the coil which is more reactive on little bumps.

    Thanks before I had one dhx coil; for what it regards the little bumps does not have problems with the good setup.... but hung less!

    I like coil for jumping. You can preload the thing. I have a DHX 5.0. But I don't jump much so I keep an RP23 on it, which is better for epic XC rides, IMHO.

    But that's why I love the Heckler. With just a shock swap (and fork length switch), you have a different beast.

    Like Catnash above - I have also just replaced my 07 Enduro SL with a Heckler. Our posts on the Specialized forum over the last 6 months both told a similar tale of woe!

    Had an 05 Heckler (unfortunately stolen) before the Enduro - should have known better than to depart from the tried and true.

    New build 27.8lb on the shop scales with:

    Medium in Liquid Blue
    Pike 545 air
    08 XT drivetrain, brakes and hubs
    08 xtr shifters
    DT Swiss XR4.2 rims with tubeless conversion
    Continental Mountain King 2.2 rear
    Schwalbe Nobby Nic 2.4 front
    Easton EC70 carbon post
    WTB Rocket V Ti Saddle
    Easton EA90 Stem
    Ritchey WCS Rizer carbon bars

    First ride last Sunday - feels great to be back on a Heckler!

    Another couple of shots, a very very wet ride, a downhill run just before the shot on the bridge confirmed it's a rocket on the DH.

    Coming from a Talas on my previous

    Though I do miss the fact I could lower the height of the Talas during looong climbs.

    Not a 2007 but new to me!

    Having previously ridden and raced a Superlight and a Blur XC, I always said that I'd get a Heckler the day I'd stop racing. Well, 2 years ago I developed an injury and had to abandon all things MTB. I couldn't ride at all anymore and ended up selling my beloved Blur XC.

    After 2 years of not riding (except occasionally on my road bike), I'm only now finally ready to get back on the MTB. Knowing that racing is pretty much completely out of the picture for the foreseeable future (injuries and lack of time), I began looking for that Heckler that I'd always wanted.

    I Found a great deal right away on a 2005 large (on the MTBR classifieds) and drove 4.5 hours to pick it up yesterday. The guy selling it was supercool and we ended up going for an hour+ ride after I picked it up (you know that you are not getting ripped off if the seller wants to go riding with you on your new bike). Then I took her out today for a 2-hour romp through the woods of Cape Cod and took a couple of pictures of my new steed:












    I could not be happier with this bike - it delivers on every one of my expectations.

    BTW: I tried to post this on the 2005 Heckler thread, but it was closed, hope it was okay that I posted here.

    I'm back!
