That sounds like a good deal to me. I have a friend that has that component kit on his Heckler and he likes it a lot. Although I'm not a fan personally of the Float shock (which has nothing to do with what you are asking), I think that price is a great deal for that bike/component setup. Let us know if you end up with it and include a pic or two.

this is a very good deal, don't wait, I may go and get it...
FYI, I got a Heckler '08 RAM build, in July, and paid 2.500 USD for it, which I think is not bad at all.
Let us know and post the picture

The spec set up is nice. Had annoying problems with Juicy brakes making all sorts of sqealing noises at first:confused: . The Heckler is supposed to be a quiet bike. That was very irritating. Got the organic set of pads and solved the problem. Now can sneak up on equestrians as close as possible...:nono:

Welcome to the Hecklerhood. You're going to be very, very happy, just don't ride beyond your ability early on, as the Heckler inspires confidence and speed from the first pedal stroke. You'll be amazed how fast you'll be going. I imagine it's like renting a Dodge Viper for a day and realizing you're doing 70 MPH as you turn into your driveway!
