Want to get an opinion from you santa cruz experts. Would it be a good deal to buy a used 2009 santa cruz heckler for $900 bucks? From every other price I have seen it would be yes, but just wanted to get all of your opinions. I am buying one and just wanted to get peoples thoughts. Thanks

Is that frameset only or complete bike?What suspesion/components? I f complete i say yes,great deal unless cracked or other major issues.Look,you get what you pay for when buying new,thats why these bikes are so expensive,that being said,they are virtually in destructable and there is no problem buying used.If its complete,jump on it!!!

Seems like a pretty good deal. I bought a 2011 D-AM heckler lightly used Demo(Used mostly on paved bike paths) for $1,150. I'm shopping for an RP23 (Have the float now) for it and threw on a set of Mavic Crossmax SL that I already owned.

I love the bike! Climbs surprisingly well and rips DH. I have always owned XC bikes and still do, but the Heckler has opened some new doors for major fun factor.

Thanks for your replies. Im definitely buying it just wanted to get some thoughts. I have an iron horse maverick 4.5 now and its a nice bike but I just wanted something better for climbing as my iron horse is close to 40 pounds. Nothing but good reviews I have read on this so when I saw 900 for a 2009 I wanted it. Thanks again

i went through waiting for the Fedex guy earlier this week for my new BLTc. It is excruciating, especially when the shipping status is "On Fedex truck for delivery". brutal! but when it gets there, merry Christmas!

No. I definitely am not stupid. I sent the money to a friend who lives there. she got the bike and took it to a bike shop to get it packaged up. Now I'm just waiting for her to ship it. She was supposed to ship it yesterday, but I have not heard if she did or not. as you can tell I'm very anxiously awaiting its arrival and I will surely post pics as I put it back together.
