    Prophet and Rush Swingarm Interchangeable?

    been searching for a QR swingarm for my prophet for a while,

    just wondering if the rush one fits seeing as they use the same pivot bolt?

    I just had this issue with cannondale a few weeks ago. Call their head office and ask for heather. They have one new prophet swing arm left for warrenty replacments, its brown I took the black one. I was going to use the rush swing arm but cannondale could not give me the angles this would create and they could not promise if I took a big hit that I would not hit my frame. Thr rush wasa 120 travel and as you know thr prophet is 140. I know people has used the swing arm from the rush but you would loose the adj angle and from what the rep told me is that cannondale has to approve the swing arm or you can void the warrenty. Let me know what heather does for you. Good luck

    If it's a swing arm from a Rush SL with a cross brace it won't fit.
    If it's from an older Rush it'll fit but you'll lose the adjustment option karlmichael pointed out.

    That'll work the best IMO.
    What size & color is your current frame?

    Prophet swingarms will popup on ebay occasionally, I was able to score a new one last week.
