If the update is anything like the Superlights update (which it appears to be) it should be considerably stiffer. I believe they advertise the Superlight as being 3X stiffer and I believe the pivot was urgraded to a 20mm thru axel pivot.ronny said:Hard to tell, but it looks like the bearings got bigger. The only real complaint about the Heckler was swing arm flex and I wonder if the rear is stiffer now?
Glad you are digging the 4X Indyfab. You were contemplating for a while there. There have been a lot of tempting deals on the 4X these days.
As far as I can tell anyways. I had a Taiwanese Heckler and it looked nice and performed just fine. The price has come down on the Heckler considerably over the past couple of years.dustyduke22 said:that is pretty sick. how is the quaility on those bikes now that they are made overseas?
Not nearly as much tire clearance as the current heckler - and apparently they changed the geometry - higher bb and longer tt. I prefer the old heckler.crisillo said:
the new bullit has a 20mm pivot axle. the new heckler and the new superlight both have 15mm pivot axles.checocc said:the new superlight has a 20mm pivot and the heckler a 15mm pivot???
what's the catch.
I think the new heckler should be stiffer in all their parts. that's only my 2 cents.
