    Prophet 5 - A new beginning

    Just got my 2007 Prophet 5 back in action after a month on the stand. Mostly waiting for the Lefty PBR conversion and a few misc parts.

    Here's the spec...

    - All new Lefty Max 140 PBR conversion
    - Avid Elixir 3's
    - Woodman Lefty hub/Hope Pro 2 Evo hub built to Stan's Flow Tubeless
    - SRAM X-9 drivetrain (2x9)

    May not be a "new" bike, but as far as I'm concerned it's new. I am ready to tear. it. up.

    Who want's to ride!?

    Nice built!
    That paintjob is one of my all time favorites....
    I had the same bike, but sold it since it was a Medium and a bit too small for me.....
    I'm on my forth prophet now.....went from a L to a M, then back to a L sold it for a Rush...kept the Rush and bought another Prophet in L which this time I won't sell....ever...love the looks of the Delta frame + the simplicity when it comes to maintenance.
    Might not be the lightest bike around but one of the strongest ones I've had, and one of the best allrounders period.
    Mine is on the Stand right now as well....need to rebuild my rear wheel and I'm still waiting on the parts to get here....
    The PBR upgrade will be my next project too, did it on my DLR2 fork and love it!
    I'm contemplating about getting a XX1 group for it and to move all of my XO stuff over to my hardtail.....maybe by the end of the year when prices come down a bit.....
    If you like to trade the frame for a 2007 Rush frame, let me know...
