Product Description

Now with the same super awesome geometry as the acclaimed Bronson, plus 150mm travel and 27.5 inch wheels to match, there's been no half measures in the new Heckler's development. Legions of Heckler owners testify to the durability of the design, marching on through season after season while other bikes at this price point simply rattle to pieces. The aluminum frame is now stiffer and lighter than its predecessor, with a single collet axle pivot, 142mm rear end and a direct mount rear derailleur hanger keeping things tight and tidy.

Strengths:    This bike looks great and it's fun to ride. People say stuff like, nice Santa Cruz. I ride somewhat aggressive and I've been mountain biking about 15 years, this bike can easily handle anything I do. Great all around bike for climbing and descending. I got the black one.

Weaknesses:    I had to add a dropper post, of course, and the only other weakness is the pivot was making a creaking noise after a couple rides but I tightened it a little and it doesn't creak anymore. Also, it weighs about 32 pounds, with dropper post, pedals and everything, so it's not the lightest

Bottom Line:   
very fun bike to ride. I feel like I got the perfect bike for my riding style

Opinions on the 27.5 heckler?

Has anybody here owned or ridden one? I got a line on a frame in 27.5 wheel size and am interested in opinions. If this bike happens I think I am going to through the Answer/Manitou/Hayes/Sun Ringle catalog at it. Just like the single pivot, they are under appreciated products!Read More »

Santa Cruz Heckler 27.5 announced...

Seems like SC is going all-in with 27.5. $1299 for frame and starts at $2600 for full build kit. Definitely more affordable than the Solo and Bronson. Can anyone explain to me what makes the Heckler 27.5 different from the other two? I am assuming that it mainly has to do with single pivot vs. VPP s ... Read More »
