Show me your 650B Hecklers
Well I have been without a bike for 6 months, I have my heart set on a new 650B Heckler in Blue.
Spent yesterday buying on CRC buying drivetrain, mechs, shifters etc for £260
Not sure if I should put a 150mm or 160mm Pike on or not, will probably go for Hope Hoops with Arch EX.
Would be good to get some advice and pics of your 650B Hecklers
ThanksPosted 4 years agorickonSubscriber
Arch EXs are great, far nicer than Crests and a bit lighter than Flows.
160mm on the 650b…. Won’t that give a bit extra height at the front compared to the same setup on the standard 26? They are specced from Santa Cruz with 150mm forks….
Pikes though, great choice 🙂Posted 4 years ago

I’m not the best person to ask as the last FS bike I had was a first generation heckler! I’ve been riding either hardcore hardtails or rigid ss since then! To me it feels really plush, the forks live up to all the reviews straight out the box and to me the rear shock seems great too! Ridden my local trails which are very rooty and trail centre reds/blacks and it just ploughed over, through and down everything. It flatters my limited skills and definitely brings out the hooligan! Just get used to answering the following questions:
Is that 650b?
Is it a Bronson or a heckler?
Is it carbon?
Can you notice any difference in ride!
Look forward to seeing pics built up!Posted 4 years ago
