A new purchase means that my beloved Heckler has to go.
I purchased the bike new and it has been my main trailbike through various iterations since, though used little in the last couple of years due to the arrival of a small person. Not used for downhilling or jumping, just bombing around the place.
XL frame with 5th coil shock, 350lb Ti spring (good for 75kgish rider).
Pike 454 forks with 20mm Maxle, coil sprung 95-140mm U-Turn.
Handbuilt wheels Mavic 719 on Hope ProII front and XTR rear.
Transmission a mix, but XT rear mech and chainrings on Deore cranks.
Brakes are super-reliable Deore hydraulic with 203mm rotor front and 160mm rear.
Seatpost and saddle a few rides old as swapped from the new bike.
The pivot bearings were replaced about six months ago, so on previous reckoning have another 5 years until they’ll need replacing again! New pivot hardware on the shock fitted last week.
I also have a spare 5th shock included as I purchased a whole unit second hand to get my hands on the ti spring. Also a spare dropout/mech hanger and 350lb plus 450lb steel springs, all included. There is the usual amount of paint rub for a bike of this age.
I’m just outside Bristol but would be willing to look into postage if you needed. I could probably do something to arrange local delivery (or am planning on being at the Crickhowell marathon on Saturday).
I’m thinking £575ish, but let me know if you have a sensible offer.
Any questions there’s an email address in my profile.
