    Prophet with a 7.5" x 2.0" Shock?

    To make a long story short I've got an 05 Prophet and a nice 7.5" x 2.0" shock I'd like to use with it. I know the stock size is 7.875" x 2.0".

    Has anyone used a 7.5" x 2.0" in the XC or FR position on the Prophet? I imagine using the shorter shock in the XC will give me the lower/slacker geo?

    Thanks!

    The difference between shock mounts on the Prophet is 6mm. The shock you have is 9.5mm shorter, so it would be like FR plus 1/2 on difference. Might hit the seat post on full travel. Definitely in FR, maybe in XC.
    My name is Chris and I ride a Prophet 650b with a Lefty.
