    New (to me) Prophet 4!

    Hi guys/girls. After a 12 month hiatus away from mountain biking, im back as of today. Picked up a used '07 Prophet 4 in the raw aluminum color. My previous bike was a well-built Turner 5-spot.

    Couple quick questions. I'll be switching to SRAM shifters/derailleurs. What type of front do i need?

    Also, what is the seatpost diameter?

    Lastly, are the decals under some type of clear? I'd like to remove them for a cleaner look, but dont mind them as-is if they're under the clear.

    Thanks!!
    Brian

    You can use SRAM or Shimano front derailleur with SRAM shifters, but the Prophet uses an E-type front derailleur, which only shimano makes. I would just stick with the stock front derailleur. The seatpost diameter is 27.2mm.
