    Heckler, any of you ride one?

    I found a fair deal on an '03 Heckler and need a ride report. It's like a scaled down Bullit, about what I need right now for a trail bike. I know when they first came out with them it was a great bike but it's a completely different design now. Would be good for the limited travel DH class I think. TIA.

    One of the local race series is trying to gather interest in the DH part so they are going to have a "limited travel" class to try and get the XC people more involved. Until I can afford to go with a full-on DH bike I think this would be cool. Only problem is last time I checked they were thinking of limiting it to 4", which would rule out almost all trail bikes. If they go 5 or 6" I think it would get lots more participation since even some race XC bikes are over 4". We'll see but it sounds like a good idea to me. Not too many years ago 5" was pure DH...

    Look into an officially sanctioned race called super D...very xc dh. In this race a limited travel bike would be a huge advantage.

    I just finished the 24hrs in the Old Pueblo on my Heckler. Great trail bike. But, it rocks on the rough stuff. I can take 6' drops w/no problem. I would recommend this rig to everyone!

    Super T is smooth like whipped butter. That man wouldn't break a bike if it was fragile anyways ...

    I can't wait to get that series. I have it on order. Wohooooo
