- Anyone riding a cannondale prophet?
What year did they stop producing them in the USA? I forget what year mine is, but its the last year of that batch… All solid white with white transfers. I’m not overly keen on my colour scheme. But its the least of my worries when i’m on it having fun, lets be honest…Posted 4 years agoalwhitMember

They’re brilliant bikes! I’ve had three (one MX, two ‘normal’ Prophets.) Raced XC, the Mega, done mutli-day trips… awesome.
Never cracked or broken, but my MX did go through shock bushings VERY fast, which was annoying.
To answer an earlier question: I got the shock pushed on the MX. It felt good – I felt it had been bottoming out too easily prior to that.
I’m about to strip a large 2009(?) frame to sell if anyone’s interested… 😉Posted 4 years agophillyphilMember
Here’s my 650b 2006 (I think?) prophet. Only thing original really in the frame and lefty. I have a 1×9 set up stans tubless wheels with project 351 hubs. Rear clears fine with it in free ride mode. I even rode a nevegal 2.25 rear tire for a while and it cleared fine as well. ..,everyone says it doesn’t clear but it does. I even ran it with the stock front derailleur and no issues. Now with a 2.1 rear it has even more clearance. I love my bike. I’d like a lock out front fork and maybe a better rear shock but no issues with what I have.Posted 4 years agoPaulGillespieMember
Andy I’ve had both. The Rush is excellent for long XC rides where efficiency is of prime importance. Very comfortable over long distances. It was also very capable over technical terrain but the prophet has the edge here. I’ve raced XC on it, marathons and even an Alps trip where I was following (slowly) DH bikes.
The prophet is a bit more of a hooligan. It does well on XC rides and it doesn’t stop you putting in the miles but it’s really designed for more techie steeper terain. I felt more comfortable doing jumps/drops on the prophet but that was probably due to the build kit. I’ve done several 60k+ rides on it but it was more effort and I was slower on it than the Rush.
If I could only have one, i’d have the prophet. But that’s just me.Posted 4 years agoEuroMember
