    Another one

    Brand new M-sized Heckler.
    Lyric Solo Air, DHX 5, Avid Elixir CR, XT drivetrain, Funn Fatboy AM handlebar and AM stem, Acros headset. Said to weigh about 14,8kg.
    Wheelset (Blackjack Sniper DH) is an interim solution, because ordered Mavic Crossline weren't available by now. Same thing with seatpost: the final version will have a Kindshock adjustable seatpost.



    The very first impression from my first ride yesterday is: this is an awesome bike. Climbs steep ascents without need for an adjustable fork. I didn't even notive any significant pedal feedback on bumpy uphills. Looks and feels bombproof, yet handles quick and precise. A masterpiece amongst the single pivot bikes for sure.

    I was just being jealous because my heckler doesn't have such good looks!

    Nice bike...

    All these pristine clean hecklers . . . it's a little unnerving.




    I'm expecting to give it another coat of earth this weekend.

    I already posted in this thread...

    ...but I have made huge changes in the last couple of months. I pulled off the Rock Shox J2, the Magura HS-33's, and the Chris King Classic wheels. I have replaced them with a Marzocchi 33, Avid Code (185mm/160mm) brakes, and an XT wheelset. I also added the Azonic pooky pedals and swapped the polished CK headset for a black one. Before anyone freaks out, I have not ditched the CK wheelset. I am saving the money to reshell them for discs and will put them back on the bike as soon as possible. I can truly appreciate the CK hubs now after having them and going back to the XT. The noise is worth the engagement.

    Anyways, on with the pictures. Mine is dirty too, unfortunately they are lame basement pictures.

    That's a sweet looking ride! Why change cranks? The XT you have is outstanding. The octalink system works but there are durability issues. Once you tighten the Truvativ crank there is aluminum in the crank-arm that conforms to the spline (octalink). Once you remove your crank arm a number of times it becomes hosed and will give you problems. Stick with what you have. Shimano cranks are second to none.

    thanks, masonmax! really have no problems with the XT's and agree that their 2nd to none in durability and shifting performance. just thought about changing to the new truvativs because they we're black! pretty lame huh...

    My new-to-me ride

    Came with a fairly standard 07/08 build kit, fox vanilla rlc, and mechanical discs. Moab demo bike, so a few dings and scratches. It will get a new lease on life here in the South East. I had to swap out the fork since I am over 210lb and fox doesn't make a spring big enough for my arse The brakes are another weight related change. The bars and stem? I dunno, I just don't like how much flex the xc components have. The 25.4mm bars and stem are a throwback to 2003, but closeout sales make that stuff too cheap to pass up.

    XL
    Rock Shox Revelation 140 dual air
    Avid Juicy 5 185mm F&R
    Easton Monkeybars, EA70 hi rise
    Azonic shorty 100mm stem (not installed yet)
    LX/XT drivetrain
    2.2/2.4 AM tire setup

    About 30lb as it sits

    Me:
    About 240lb and 6'3"

    Hi,
    I really love the silver ano color!
    I sometimes wish I had shelled out the extra bucks for the silver ano.
    But black powdercoat is decent also.

    Once my new digicam arrives Ill post some pics of my build.

    Greetings Znarf

    hey thanks, but actually it's industrial grey powdercoat. i have a friend who works @ SANTA CRUZ who owned this before me & he got this done in that grey with the black rear triangle. i bought the frame from him for $600 bones. can't wait to see your build though!

    Hi,

    =)
    I actually really meant the silver ano bike. But grey is fine too!

    Id like to strip my Heckler frame, just coat the raw alloy with a clearcoat.
    I love the look of those Cannondale raw frames.

    But then, at the moment the PC is okay. I have to say that the black powdercoat- job is soso quality wise.
    My frame is almost new and I take good care of it, it has a million of tiniest scratches though...

    Greetings Znarf

    Just finished building up the new ride. Building her up for a bomb proof all mountain machine.

    Here she is. A thing of beauty. Still waiting on my new cranks (Stylo AM) and saving up some money to grab a new seat.

    Comments/suggestions/criticism welcome.

    New components
    1) Frame 2009 Heckler Lg w/ DHX 5.0
    2) Headset: Crank Brothers Opium DH
    3) Stem: Race Face AM
    4) Welgo MG-1's (will look nicer sitting on new black cranks)

    Old and busted
    1) LX cranks w/ custom 1x9 chain retention system (getting replaced soon)
    2) X9 rear shifter and middle caged rear derailluer
    3) 2007 Marz Z1 (heavy but feels so good)
    4) Easton Havoc AM wheelset
    5) Nevegal 2.35 rear, blue groove 2.35 front
    6) Cheapo seatpost and busted ugly banana seat
    7) XT brakes.

    Wants
    1) New seat

    Here she is! I need a good scale, but right now she is tipping in around 32-33lbs.

    Divere, that is a sweet build but that picture has got to go. Get picasa, it is free and easy to resize images so that they actually fit the screen

    BTW, how is the vivid? I think it looks like a good shock, just wondering if it has enough range to minimize bob and still be compliant on the small stuff.

    Does the Heckler still climb pretty well even with one of those Fox 36's? I don't know if I should get a Pike 454, or a 36 Van R.

    Almost two months old and 300km, coming from the dark night:

    L frame Float R
    Recon 351 130m SAir
    Elixir R 185mm/185mm
    RD/Shifters XT
    FD LX

    Should I upgrade first the crankset, hubs or something else?



    Later, more pics during the day.

    man, you're gonna love that thing. rad!

    don't worry, you've gone for middle of the road components there, so no doubt you're going to be replacing things soon enough, i guarantee it. lol.

    but certainly upgrade when you do. i'd go sram x.9, x.0 if you can afford it. i prefer coil shocks, guess it's a personal preference. XT cranks; any shimano crankset with the integrated tube acting as bottom bracket, and i'd stick with triple chainrings as well. the rims are alright but the hubs might die after a season or two. not sure if deore hubs have replacable sealed bearings, probably not. never heard of your tires but good tires make a BIG difference to handling at speed. my fav tire is the gazzaloddi dual 2.3. it's a very good tire; hooks-up in all conditions, fast roller, and very long wearing, get 'em from chainreactioncycles.com.

    maybe try out some nice new magura thor or wotan forks or some 08 55 ETA, which i have (find 'em cheap online). basically, any long travel fork with a 20mm axle. i really like travel adjust, it's very handy for climbing. if you have it you will definately use it, it makes a difference. you can go cheap on other mtb components, but don't skimp on the forks. the difference between a high-end fork like magura wotans and the recons you're currently rockin' would be like night and day, we're talkin' apples and oranges here. they would completely transform your bike, and your gravity experience.

    good luck matey!

    Question to you Heckler owners

    Excellent photos everyone! I will be purchasing a Heckler very soon!

    I am 5'10" 200lbs. Santa Cruz sizing chart puts me in the medium frame (near the top). However, a few reviews that I've read said that you should go with the larger frame for this bike if you're on the border between sizes. Is this true?

    If any of you guys were on the border between sizes please let me know which size you went with and how it feels, thanks! Also, what are the advantages/disadvantages of going with a larger or smaller frame?

    Thanks again for any info, much appreciated!

    I am a hair over 5'10". 175ish lbs. I went with the medium. It feels a little cramped on the ride up..but not too bad with a 95mm stem. I really like having a medium on the way down, although I have never ridden the large.

    two questions. What is the length and stroke of the DHX that is for the new Hecklers? and if you put a fork that is more than 160 on there is that bad?

    2.5" Stroke

    The Heckler when released SC said a Fork of up to 170mm. Depending on the A2C height I don't think a longer travel fork would be a bad idea. Perhaps even up to 180mm?

    But this is a photo thread so probably better to ask in a new thread.

    SHOCK: Fox DHX 5 Air
    REAR DER. SRAM X9 long cage
    FRONT DER. Shimano M771 (XT)
    SHIFTERS SRAM X9 triggers
    CRANKSET Shimano M660 (SLX)
    HEADSET Chris King

    Here is my Heckler, I call it THE BEAST

    This is my first bike ever (well since I was a 10 year old). I am a complete rookie at MTB, but have been an avid ATV Quad Rider and an RC Nitro Car enthusiast. I didnt know anything about bikes, I had no clue regarding brands, styles, configurations, etc. I debated from a simple rigid frame, to a Cannondale F6 Hardtail, to a Trek Fuel EX 8, Santa Cruz Blurt LT Carbon, Pivot Mach 5, Intense Uzzi VP and a Specialized Enduro... but something about this bike just caught my eye. I live in Honduras and information/dealers are scarce.

    I think I read like twenty-something MTB Magazines, reviewed MTBR.com and Bikeradar.com up and down, visited hundreds of websites and spoke to dozens of riders before making my final choice. Three months after doing research I decided that this was the bike for me... I intend to do XC/AM but being a speed junky I will probably end up in Freeride. First I got to master MTB technics and I believe the Single Pivot (almost maintenance free) Suspension of the Heckler, its sturdy frame, 30.2 pound weight, and the configuration I gave it after carefull studying - leaning towards AM-FR - is going to be an excellent learning partner.

    My friends who have been in MTB for years say its too much bike for me, they are probably right, but I also know there is a little bit of jealoussy in there... none of their Superlights, Fuel EXs, Rushes, Motolites or Dawgs are such an "all-around" bike as the Heckler.

    For some reason everyone who buys Santa Cruz seems to fall in love with this low-volume, artesanal bike building company, and almost all Heckler owners develop an emotional link with their bikes... that is my kind of ride.

    This is the configuration I went for

    2010 Medium Frame White PC
    Fox Talas R 150mm 15QR
    09 Fox DHX Air 5.0 Shock
    Avid Elixir 5 Hydraulic Brakes (185mm front, 160mm rear)
    Shimano SLX Shifters
    Shimano XT Rear Derailleur
    Shimano XT Front Derailleur
    Truvativ Stylo Crankset
    Shimano SPD-424 Pedals
    Truvativ Stylo Race Stem and Stylo Team Handlebar
    Cane Creek S3 Tappered Headset
    Easton EA50 Seatpost
    WTV Pure V Race Saddle
    Mavic MX321 Wheels with Shimano XT Rear Hub, Shimano XT Front Hub with DT Swiss 14 Spokes
    Kenda Nevegal 2.35 Tyres with Freeride Tubes
    Protege 9.0 Wireless Trip Speedometer Comp
    Topeak Mini G Pump

    I am very proud of my ride, colorwise its an elegant yet cool (I guess) blend of White, Grey and Black. Too bad after getting it 2 weeks ago I got the worst flu in history, have only being able to ride it once so far, It was a painful experience climbing but a rocket descending... Remember I am rookie!

    So to all of you seasoned experts, What do you think? Is it a good bike or is it just me thinking I made good choices? Fire away and any sugestions on upgrades are more than welcomed.

    Great bike man. I always suggest the Heckler to people who're looking for that one, do-it-all bike. It may be a bit too much for you right now, as a first bike (I would've got a hardtail), but the Heckler will improve your skills and confidence within a few rides, and you'll soon come to fully appreciate it's big hit stability and all-round performance. You won't feel compelled to get a different bike in a year or so either, as you become a decent rider, just love your Heckler even more.

    When climbing, get in the granny ring (little chainring) and just keep spinning, you'll get there eventually. Put your seat post up nice and high, so you get more leverage with your legs. I think the general concencus is that coil-oil shocks work better on a single pivot. I've had a Heckler, a Bullit, and now a Foes FXR 2:1 all with coil shocks.

    For practicality/weight/aesthetic reasons, I suggest you take the pump off the downtube. Just 'cause the pump came with an attachment enabling you to stick it on the frame doesn't mean you should do it. Get a Camelbak Lobos hydration pack, which has a 'pump port' on the side.

    Thanks man, I really appreciate the advice. I did feel the DHX Air penalized my climbing capabilities, even at full propedal the shock movement sucked up all my energy, specially off-the-saddle. Maybe I will go for the DHX RC4 in the future, right now I am drained out of cash. I did buy a Camelbak Lobo, just got it yesterday and was thinking of taking the Mini G off the frame, not for aesthetics but to protect it from rocks... I didnt know it wasnt "good etiquete" to place the pump on the frame, but now I got another reason to have it on my back. Hopefully the Heckler will make me a descent rider and maybe a Nomad could be in my future!

    "I didnt know it wasnt "good etiquete" to place the pump on the frame..."

    Lawl, that's what I'm talkin' 'bout mofo. Mtb has a very steep learning curve, both in and out of the saddle. Good work on the hydration pack, being able to take a huge skull of ice cold water (or just wet your desert mouth) whenever you want dramatically improves your overall comfort. Get a good helmet, I love me Giro Xen, feels like nothing to wear it's so snug and breezy. Also, some full finger, padded gloves, like the Troy Lee XC; save your palms when you eat it. Shoes you ask? Sidi, of course, I use the mid-range Dominator 5's. Try 'em on at your local bike shop to get the exact fit (wear thin riding socks, there's at least one size in it) then buy 'em online from CRC. These are the basic safety/comfort requirements for adventurous trail riding. Good luck man!

    Nice Heckler cfrano!

    You won't be dissapointed! As mentioned, save up for that DHX coil shock. It's so much better suited to the Heckler than an air shock. I'm really keen on upgrading my frame to the 2010 version.

    I had a Heckler "5" and only liked the bike with the DHX-coil on it. For the Nomad "2" I really don't like the coil shock on it.

    m0ngy, thnx for the advice... I got a Bell Slant Ti helmet, very cool and comfortable, also got some SixSixOne Comp gloves to start with and recently purchased some AXO Padlock MX gloves for freeriding, they are cool as s..t. Shoes I went for SixSixOne Flight Premiums, they are very comfortable, breathe nicely and look badass. I am getting there dude, but hell this sport is expensive!

    God damn, that is one cool looking, expensive ride... how much money did you put on it... I see Chris King, DT, Shimano XTR, Hope Brakes, the works... Only question is with all the money spent why not go with a Nomad 2 or hell, make it a cool V10??

    Yeah mate, it costs, but it's worthwhile. You know, people get XT shifters/deraileurs 'cause they don't want to spend twice as much on X.0, "What's the diff?" they say to themselves... the difference is always having near perfect, trouble and maintenance free shifting for the duration of the lifetime of your ride, compared to endless f%$king around, missing gears right at the moment they're needed most (climbing), and regular replacement. Sure X.0 costs big bucks initially, but there's no comparison in the long run 'cause an X.0 deraileaur is virtually indestructible, and will see you through several bikes. My X.0 rear deraileur was on a Heckler, then a Bullit, and now an 2:1 FXR. I've never had a Shimano rear deraileur that was worth saving after rebuild, they're shagged after one season. What I'm saying, through watching the evoltion of the sport and it's various technologies (some good, some bad, some ridiculous), is that it almost always pays to put down the big $$ up front rather than play around with cheap components. They simply don't last, and before they inevitably fall apart on you, they don't perform all that well either. Why pay half as much for the cheap substitute when you'll have to replace it three times, while you could've been using the superior part which outlasts and outperforms. This rule is not always applicable to super high-end racing parts, where strength is secondary to weight, but should always hold true for todays all mountain components, where performance, reliability, and durability are absolute expectations. X.0 is probably the best example of this.

    So true, as in almost everything in life... cheap dont come easy and you get what you are willing to pay for... In less than a months use Ive had my rear Shimano XT Derailleur retuned twice... I am f....ing tired of ghost shifting when climbing really steep stuff. I was looking for an upgrade to X9 or Shimano XTR. I have no particular preference between Shimano or SRAM, but is the XO really that much different from X9 or XTR which is the best in the Shimano line-up? Is an X9 or X0 compatible with the Front XT Derailleur?

    Hey, you've just bought a Heckler, so you're in the company of legends buddy. In the past I always had XT or XTR or a mix of the two, and although the XTR lever action feels nice and smooth, the actual shifting of the deraileur (the business end) is not necessarily. It really comes down to the actuation ratio, that is how far the cable has to move in order for the deraileur to index to the next chainring on the cassette. Shimano uses a 2:1 ratio, so when you change gear you're actually setting into motion a complex series of tiny mechanical events, which results in a shifting action vaguely approximating to click-shoosh-shoosh (chain sound, lawl) -clunk, ok, you're in gear. Unfortunately, this 2:1 design is relatively slow, and because the cable moves only a very small amount, it's highly sensitive to cable stretch and grit inside the cable housing. As you know, this means you'll need to regularly tune the indexing on the deraileur to ensure it lands where it should every time. Whereas the Sram actuation ration is 1:1, so it's like click-clunk, and that's it, bam, you're there. Although X.0 feels really clunky (not smooth like XTR) it's a very positive shifting feeling and most importantly, the actual gear shift occurs almost instantaneously. Because the cables are moving further they're much less susceptible to cable stretch or dirt; you have the drivetrain retuned a month after installing (new cables always stretch) and then maybe once a season, if that. It's truly set and forget, it's great. Coming from Shimano shifters, where you spend a second or two every time you shift ('specially under load) praying it'll go in and thanking God it worked afterwards, this instant and always accurate shifting is nothing less than a revelation. By comparison, even XTR is like waiting for a basketball as it's rolling around the hoop, getting slower and slower, before finally stopping, teetering on the edge, and falling in, lawl. You don't need that sh!t when you're struggling up a long, steep climb; it's often the difference between breaking over that crest, revelling in personal triumph, or cursing as you jump off and walk it. I haven't tried X.9 but I would prefer it over Shimano any day.

    My latest build. Love this bike, now at 29.5lb and still handles the local DH runs ok and flies round the Welsh trail centre loops.


    '06 Frame
    Fox Float RP2 (currently with high volume can, but standard one ready to be swapped in)
    2010 RS Rev Race
    Sunline V3 bars (710mm)
    70mm On-One stem
    Hope Pro II front hub/Nuke Proof Generator rear hub.
    Syncros seatpost and rims.

    Sweet looking setup! Quick question: what advantage does a standard size air can on the fox float give you over the high volume size?

    I believe that the heckler has falling rate suspension and large volume cans tend to blow through the midstroke.
