Cannondale frame size advice needed
I need to buy a full sus frame (prophet or rush) online to swap with my hard tail frame. I had a medium size frame for a year but swapped to a large as the steering was a little twitchy when out of the saddle sprinting – do I now go for a medium or large on the full sus?
Any adive would be great,

the old cannondales (pre 2005) used to come up a bit small so if you rode a medium with most bikes a large was perfect,after around 2005 dale sizes are the same as most makes,Posted 7 years ago
im 5ft 11" and had a medium prophet which was perfect,expect the same generation rush to be the same,

to confuse things I'm a bit over 5' 11" + finally had to admit that the medium Prophet I had was too small, but the large too big. similarly couldn't quite make a medium Rush feel right which is a shame as they are ace. As a guide I find a medium Cotic Soul and 18 Orange ST4 perfect. I guess allot of it is riding preference/style and torso : legs ratio.Posted 7 years ago
Cheers for the info guys – only a little confused!! my current bike is a 2005 f5 hardtail with a large frame and 110 lefty fork and it fits me fine, the medium frame was the right height but put my over the handlebars too much – sp looking at the rush or prophet frames I think the safest bet would be a large?

I am just over 5'11" and am "inbetween" medium and large for many bikes. However when its come to Cannondales I have always gone for a large frame size – that is going back to my first m900, f1000, various super vs, gemini and now a rush. The rush is the first one I have had that does actually feel like a large (so maybe C'dale have increased their sizes) but that is fine for the type of bike it is and the type of riding I will be doing on it.
Only exception was a medium gemini I bought for downhill.
I think the best idea is try before you buy. If you are anywhere near Aberdeen you can try my rush for size.Posted 7 years ago
