It seems Cannondale of Brasil is trying to blow my chances of ever get my Prophet 2. I had the update from my shop that they will receive Prophets 1 and 3, but no 2 this time. Nice.
Since I don't want to lower the spec I already have on my bike, I'm thinking about getting the Prophet 1 and spec it full XTR. But one thing concerns me: aren't the SLRs too racy for the Prophet? Will they handle the hard riding the Prophet is intended, such as stunt jumps, rough-rocky terrain and nasty descent singletracks? They don't seem to follow the bike toughness... at least in their concept. Wouldn't be better if there ever was a Crossmax ST Lefty for the Prophet instead of the SLR? For the Carbon Rush it may make sense, but for a Prophet?
Last year the top Prophet spec'ed a SL set, but it is a tough wheel. So far, I've seen many Prophets in the forum sporting them, including Dan's. But bo SLR so far. Is the SLR up to it? Or should I consider building a stronger set? Anyway, why would CD spec these wheels on this bike if they weren't any good for it?
