    Very beautiful bike You have here bro :-). No blings - just pure fun. And the color looks REALLY good :-). The only thing is the fork - I had no luck with Fox Forx. I made 3 attempts, first time was so-so, next 2 - just horrible. I stick with Marzocchi and Rock Shox :-). But it's just me. Great bike - have fun and ride as it was stolen.

    Take care,
    serhij

    off topic,
    the depth of field in those shots is amazing, don't see that as much in the digital age. was it a manual focus, or did you trick the auto focus on the ground near the bike, or is your camera just allot better than mine!

    oh yeah, nice bike...

    Well, I would like to answer your question but the photo was taken by my friend Dijck (and I thank him for that). All I know is, that he has a pretty expensive digital camera.

    And I am glad you like my bike.

    If you use a low number aperture setting I normally use 2.8 and even experiment with Macro and Supermacro you can get achieve this sort of photo quite easily.

    Rp23?

    Is that a Fox RP23 mounted on your Heckler? How high is that drop?

    Its a Float R. Large Volume.

    Rest of the bike is built tough: 36 up front, 823s on HOPEs, 2.5 tires.

    The drop was about 4 feet I think, and the bike took it with no complaint. I'd do it on my Lizard just as easy. Mind you - It's not big, but its very far from the neerest medical facility.

    Moto Rider get heckled.


    Finally put some miles on my new bike at the woods by my home. This is my second full suspension bike. That’s if you count my jeep. However, with only 60mm of travel and weighing in at 40+ lbs I don’t know if you’d call it a real full suspension bike.

    Does this new bike make me a better rider? Not! but it's sure fun. I can ride it faster then my moto down hill… But to be fair that’s a hard tail. I will say this. It covers my sloppy riding style because it plows through everything. I do have something I can compare here if I use my moto. The fork: Revelations -V- Lyrik.

    No comparisons the Lyrik, wins hands down. It’s easer to setup then the revelations. It’s beefier all around and with the 20mm through axel... Much stiffer. Just floats over roots without any hesitation.

    Brakes: I’ve been using avid bb7’s and I will say that they are the best mechanical binders on the market. However, these avid juicy 7’s have modulation like I’ve never felt before. I can feel the caliper grab the disc before the suspension compresses. Nice.

    I like it.

    Yep, they're SLRs soon to be downgraded a little to SL. I'm slapping those SLRs on a new project... Total package is a little over 26lbs.

    Dumb question - why a coil in back and an air in front - why not a Vanilla RLC in front?

    Didn't go vanilla in front b/c there is no travel adjust on that fork, and although the weight difference isn't much, the vanilla does weigh more. Rode a Talas on a Nomad and liked the feel, and loved being able to drop it down to almost nothing for the climbs. On the few rides I've gotten in, I have had the Heckler on the 130 setting (~ 5") the most... seems to be a great geometry for that bike. Haven't yet hit many "downhill" type trails or resorts where I need the extra travel of 6.3".

    Mainly decided to go coil in rear b/c of minimal weight difference, and lack of fiddling with air settings every ride, but more so b/c of feel and ability to handle the bigger stuff.

    My new heckler!

    After 10+ years on an orange steel Kona Kilauea hardtail (that finally died a graceful death), I just received my new orange Heckler. Thanks to everyone who posts on MTBR - your collective feedback, pics, etc. were invaluable to my decision. I''m 6' and after alot of back and forth test riding b/w Large and Extra-Large, I went with the Large frame (with set-back seatpost and 120mm stem) - perfect fit! I also went with a spec geared more towards XC and AM, vs. hardcore AM/FR - primarily b/c I live in Houston... Weight came in at 28 1/2 pounds - thought hard about a lighter wheelset, but am glad I went with a more "solid" setup... Will probably go with some lighter tires once the Ignitors wear out (hopefully soon 'cause that means I'm riding alot!).

    08 Fox Float RLC fork
    08 Fox RP23 rear shock
    08 XT cranks
    08 XT shifters (minus the shift indicators )

    Nice build, PR. I'd love to know how it rides with that Lyrik on there. I'm thinking of going with a coil U-turn on mine - that or an '08 36. Do you find the steering a little slacked out with the fork at 160mm?

    Franz, had my first ride on it last night. I thought that the fork felt fine climbing until I remembered that I had the 2 step and turned it on. The bike was much easier to climb on with the lower fork setting. I was not doing any steep climbing and I came to the conclusion that if I was going to be doing extended climbing that it was important to shorten the travel. I could have climbed without adjusting the fork but there was a very noticable change that I liked very much. Otherwise the fork did very well. There were noticable adjustments with the mission control system and I tried the flood gate feature for about 3 seconds and then turned it off. It worked well, but not a good idea for rocky single track climbing. The fork also felt much less active when at 115mm, but I could tell a big difference between floodgate and shorter travel. So far great fork!

    Thanks, that's good to know. I don't do crazy-steep climbs but I'd like to be able to drop the front a bit - I'm running a 32 Van at the moment and I love the quick steering. Just need a bit more stiffness in the nasty stuff.
