Singletrack mag: Winter 2002.
The completely redesigned Heckler is poised once again to defy popular mountain bike convention by demonstrating that a long-travel freeride-oriented chassis can roll handlebar to handlebar with some of the most efficient cross-country bikes on the market today.
I recommend the Heckler to second generation trail riders hard-core mountain bikers who have well developed bike handling skills and have cranked many miles on dual-suspension bikes. The Heckler is sturdy and versatile. You can jump it, ride stunts or take it out on an epic without touching it with an Allen wrench. Its single-pivot suspension may be primitive by todays standards, but it has been tuned to the peak of its evolutionary curve and performs with a sophistication that most four-bar systems have yet to attain. The Heckler is a no-nonsense performer that I would very much like to have in my stable.'
