    Identification of Model

    Hey guys, I just got into mtb 2 months ago and finally bought an upgrade to a old rockymountain I was using. I bought this on craigslist and have no idea what year the frame is and also would like any information. My friend helped me pick this one and said the componenets are older XTR's and the santa cruz brand was solid so ended up paying $900 for it. Spent another $200 doing tune-up, pad swaps, and disk changing.

    The other thing is the tires are 2.5 and I'm having issues with the tires rubbing the derailer on the lowest gears. Should I just swap to thinner?

    Thank you in advance.

    That looks like 06 and earlier Santa Cruz Heckler. 2.5" tires are usually too big for trail bikes especially in that era. Of course not all 2.5 are equal, you can most likely fit any 2.35"

    I was thinking heckler but the rear suspension looked like a superlight ? View topic - Santa Cruz Superlight

    I think Hecklers had the same style swing arm. If not, it's one raked out Superlight (but the rear shock looks too long for that).
