Thanks. It's a lost cause I'm sure, but...there's a somewhat common mod to replace the stock 200x51 with a 200x57 and get 160mm travel. You lose the lower HA adjust shock mount option but my current 150mm fork would make up for it. That mod makes more ... more »

A cannondale Prophet. I doubt it since the falling rate suspension goes from 2.6:1 to 3:1. They used to spec fox DHX coils on some models back in the late 00s when this model was new. I've got a frame I upgraded to all modern parts including a 27.5 conversion. ... more »

How would a Hazzard with a progressive spring work on a regressive single pivot? At all? Or no chance?

For a little background I ride a heavily upgraded old school Cannondale Prophet. 1x11 XT, mt5s, 27.5 conversion with a Fox 34 factory at 150mm plus more. Why bother with an ancient frame like that? Why not? Plus I like the ride. Also I got a killer deal ... more »

Did you outsource the carbon work or do you have access to your own process?

I've got an 05 Cannondale Prophet with a regressive single pivot design. Would this work with that? It goes from a 2.6:1 ratio to a 3.0:1 ratio at the end.

It takes a high compression and low rebound tune with the old monarch I had tuned by dirtlabs.com.

I plan on getting a new shock in 200x2.25 bumping travel to 160mm soon (common mod as is a 27.5 conversion I did this year) so I'm curious if this would be worth it.

Not the same leverage ratio and all that of course, but I love the way my old 05 Prophet rides. I got a custom tuned shock for it and it's very nice. Replacing the pivot bearings took less than 10 minutes too. A good single pivot wins. At least for me.

I'm pretty sure the patent on the VPP suspension design expired. So no sue for you, SC!

Neko is from Reading Pennsylvania originally. I lived near there and I had the pleasure of watching him dominate the Duryea DH race they had there for a bit. I saw him there in 2007 when he was on Specialized. I didn't get to meet him but I was told he is a class act for sure. Great to see him on Intense and constant team mates with Gwin. They're 2 of my favorite riders. I wish them a great season!

Depends on what side of the pond you're on and how far you swim.

So many long lists. Mine is very short. 1. Walgoose Rockadile (dear Lord, the name) that I began upgrading because I couldn't a afford a real frame. 2. 07 Cannondale caffeine when I could afford a real frame. 3. 05 Cannondale Prophet. I initially cannibalized ... more »

At least it isn't some weird ass Santa Cruz color. Or nuclear yellow with purple graphics. I'm old school but primary colors rule. I get that people like the new style but then the alt colors are always gray black monochrome boring. Pivot's red and black ... more »
