MIss my Heckler
Finding myself with a Blur LTc a Nomad and a Heckler and no money for parts, something had to go.... I had to sell my second and most perfect Heckler. I find that pedalling the heckler with its single pivot is much more efficient when hammering than the VPP. But the Vpp takes the edge on climbs and downhills as a stable floaty platform. The Heckler makes it easy to wheelie drop anything. It is so balanced and predictable and a great bike for someone looking to get to be a better biker. I thought I'd always have a Heckler, and someday hope to get another. It works best with a 140-150mm fork. I had a revelation, but a Fox 32 float or talas would be an upgrade. You can put 203mm rotors on it, and build it sub 25 lbs, or put a coil on there and hit some sh1t. VPP is overrated if the Heckler goes away the simple single pivot has its problems on the rollers with stinkbugging, but overall kills it in snappy and predictable rebound. Great great indestructable bike with a bottle opener as frosting on the cake. As soon as there's room in my wallet for three bikes again, there's room for the heckler in my stable.
