    Prophet issues, going over the bars, seatpost help

    Ive changed the stem length and rise, the rise of my bars, switched to the FR position and I still feel like Im going over the bars. Will the Titec Bent or Thopson Setback help me and will it help extend my legs without still being over the bars?

    Maybe the frame is too small?

    If you have already been in FR position, the frame could be too small for you. But since you own it already, too late. Try that seat post. I could help, but it may also leverage your weight so you front likes to pop up too easy. I could not hurt to try

    I'm running both a Titec Bent seatpost and a Syntace VRO T-Stem, large, on my '06 Prophet 600 small frame. Stock, the cockpit was cramped. Got the Titec first and it helped quite a bit. With the addition of the Syntace, it allowed for really fine tuning as its adjustable though a 50mm range, as well as a rise, depending on adjustment. Real happy with this arrangement. Got the Syntace on Ebay for a decent price.
