    at least a couple prophets in the classified ads here, plus they show up on ebay all the time...
    I'd offer to sell you one of my frames, but Miss Cleo is an XL and my main ride, and the other is a wee little medium.

    best of luck to ya!

    i am running out of places to find a good prophet 3, but i was at another shop and saw the new 2008 giant trance 2, man thats a really nice bike, took it for a quick spin and i was impressed, nice geometry, good parts, light and sharp handling and she is a looker! if i cant get my hands on a good deal with a prophet, i might have to jump ship on a giant trance. i feel a little guilty because i have been a cannondale guy for a 8-9 years since the super v days... have any you guys seen this bike, what do you think of it, i know its a total difference in bike choice but....

    I have been in the LBS and saw Cannondale row FS frames...they are just beautiful....

    Ok, so you want cannodale for lefty.... Did you know that lefty is still in their 2008 catalog? This means you can purchase it if you really need it. My LBS has plant of Rush bikes with lefty.

    Wrong lefty. The rush has a Lefty DLR, air spring. The 2005-2007 Prophets had a lefty max, 140mm coil spring. That's the one Cannondale stop producing because of manufacturing supply issues I believe. I still think it is the best fork ever made

    Your best bet is to get the dealer's list of the cannondale web and start calling. Some will ship it based on my experience. And try craigslist and ebay...

    That is a scam beware !

    That edmundbike guys is a very old scam , you will never see anything after you wired you $$ to them in spain. Don't waste your time there.

    If you are looking for a prophet , I picked up spanking new 07 P5 with a left Max from Athens Cyclepath for $1000 bucks in mid Sept , don't know if they still have any left , but doesn't hurt if you give them a call , just google Athens Cyclepath and you will get their info.

    Good luck in your search.
