    im 6ft and have a 33in inseam. i run my saddle hight at 3/4 length when climbing and at 1/2 length when downhilling. so you should be fine. replace the stock seat with a flat style saddle and you should be fine. sounds like your longer in the arms and torso? perhaps get a 10 mm longer stem to put more weight on the front? the prophet is a great bike and you will really enjoy being able to change from xc to fr mode. really helps when your tired from a 10 mile climb just to put her into free ride mode and just point her down hill.

    I agree with karlmichael, the size L should fit fine. I am 6'0" with a 32 inseam and ride a size M Rush. For me, the fit on my Rush is o.k. but I think I would be a little more comfortable on a size L.

    Good luck with the Prophet, it's an awesome bike!
