    My New Heckler '07

    Here is my new Heckler '07....I am still in shock that I have been able to build my first dream mountain bike after 15 years of riding!! I have done research on each and every part and just built the bike as I went...it is still a bit of work in process...

    I am curious to find out if anyone can give me some feedback on the setup of the bike so far...in other words...did I screw up some of my bits when I put this Frankenbaby together? I think that most of them work well together...but are there better parts to make the whole??

    The bike is set up with the following:
    - '07 Santa Cruz - Heckler
    - Forx - Fox Float RLC32
    - Rear - Fox Float R
    - Drive - XTR Front, Rear, Shifters
    - Rims - Mavic XRide
    - Stem/Seatpost - Thomson Elite
    - Bars - Easton EA70
    - Headset - Chris King
    - Cranks - Truvativ FirEx
    - Brakes - Avid BB7, SL Lev, Flak Jack
    - Tires - Panaracer Firex Pro
    - Seat - Serfas Cosmo



    Plan is to change to the following in the next few months:
    - Cranks - Race Face Atlas
    - Seat - WTB Pure Stealth

    This should be the final product for now...unless I can get some good recommendations for changes

    Oh yeah....the bike absolutely rocks, my riding is better then ever in the past 15 years. I am going for the first REAL ride tomorrow morning to DAR, MA...good stuff

    Thanks

    I like it too We had a good 14 mile ride today in local single track trails & fire roads. The bike is great...we did some tweakin' along the way with fork settings, brakes, etc., but overall, a good ride. I went from a hardtail K2 Zed X to this bike and I still can't believe what I can ride over.

    I am putting the rocket V seat on next week, but will wait on the cranks. The Firex aren't that bad.

    my old beast

    here's mine, it's an 03 which has been almost completely rebuilt three times now. don't have any photos of the first build. was really cheap cause you at the time you could only buy frame only in australia, and it was REALLY expensive, so i skimped on parts.

    this is the second rebuild from late 04 with mostly 05 parts



    and this is the latest incarnation (and certainly the best) with all 06 parts. note the purdy lady - she helps get me through those really hellish climbs:

    Hmmm am I in the right place?.. (I think the other Heckler threads are locked?)

    This is my 2003 small white Hecker
    Fox Float RLC forks
    Fox Float RL rear shock
    Juicy 7s
    XT drivetrain
    And some other specs I can't think of at the top of my head right now

    I've had it for about three years now with various parts on it but I think I've got it set up quite nicely for me now. Climbs up good, descends well. Plus it's sitting just on 30 lbs which I thought wasn't too bad (considering the average wheelset I've got on it!)

    heckler specs revised

    i accidently hit submit:

    brakes are actually 06 Juicy 7's with 7" rotors. i had XT on the bullit. the juicy 7's have proven to be a great brake: strong, reliable and hassle free. felt better and a bit stronger than the Hayes i had previously, but to Hayes for longevity - that hydro set was on three different bikes before it finally sh!t itself. anyway, XT hydros are way more powerful. grab an untimely handful of 'em and you're straight over the bars. juicy's ain't like that, they're all about "modulation"...

    Thomson seat post and stem, which i think is 90mm with 15 degree rise (i'm exactly 6' and it's perfect), and black Chris King No-Thread headset, of course

    i'm an AM/XC rider and 05 zocchi AM2's were an excellent match for the heckler. gotta love that super-plush zocchi feel, and the simple practicality of ETA. the 06 36 Talas are alright. they work brilliantly for a while but do require servicing at regular intervals, which is sh!t. i love the way you can just hammer zocchi's for years till they're dead, then just replace 'em with the latest and greatest. in contrast, fox forks are an on-going concern. in retrospect i shoulda got 66 Lights with ETA or RC2X's.

    note: i always use full-length cable routing wherever possible to reduce dirt and muck in the cable lines. i've only needed to adjust them once after year of abuse, which was the mandatory tweek after the first 2-3 rides.

    yes, it is a very sweet ride. i love it, it's my precious.

    Thanks! It'll need a new drivetrain pretty soon though - am having some major chainsuck issues Will ride my hardtail in the meantime. Or look into getting a Juliana for more XC-oriented riding, and turning the Heckler into more of a DH/trail bike.

    Here's a pic of me actually riding the Heckler. Nothing too extreme unfortunately (cameras don't seem to be around when I actually ride something technical.. )

    Wicked bike, Albanach.

    How tall are you? That seat post extension on an XL, plus what looks like a 110mm stem... you must be built like chewbacca.

    Here's some current pics of mine. Not ridden the tyres on this bike yet but plan to this weekend.

    Bike before a few updates:


    And now sporting bashring, high roller single ply tyres and xt front/deore rear brakes,







    It weighs exactly 34.4lbs and I challenge other riders who say theirs is a lot lighter to actually get proper accurate scales and weigh it! Saying that, I reckon the heavy parts (and those that I'm not willing to lighten up) are the wheels... about 630g each heavier than my xc bike with tyres etc.

    5th Element coil
    2004 vanilla rlc's
    F219's on BULB hubs, High Rollers
    XT Octalink with bashring
    2006 XT rear mech, 2004 XT shifters (still going as new!)
    FSA FR200 stem (I love these boys) and EA70 alloy bars (also love these! Very wide and tons of control)


    I feel at home when I get on this bike. It's just right. I can ride all day, up hill and down dale, do a 4ft vertical wall drop to flat near my home whenever I come back from riding and this gets almost full travel out of the vans. I don't notice the weight of the bike until I lift it to get over fences etc! But still... it's the most fun I have with clothes on.

    If I could change anything without worrying about money I guess I would get... erm... *thinks hard... hmm. I honestly can't think of a single thing I would change actually, thought I wouldn't mind having it in this colour instead! : (my OTHER baby)
