    Looks better than what I thought. The pics on the Cannondale site look glum for the team model.

    If anyones thinking of buying a bike head down to your local Yeti dealer. Seriously I went to mine this weekend and I was blown away.

    The AS-X would eat the Prophet alive.
    ASR-SL shoot past a scalpel.

    4X say no more.

    Totally awesome stuff, though the lefty would have been a nicer option even with a weight penalty.

    You going to have two very nice bikes.. No doubt the challenge of a good MTB ride is going to be made even harder by having to decide what bike to ride each time...

    Hey Ibod,

    I did not build it myself but let my dealer make the chances on the 1000 model.
    The weight of the bike must be between 10.8 and 10.9 KG the scale i used is accurate to 0.1 KG and jumps between those two .This is the same weight as my "old" F1000 SL that i trade in with my "old" Jekyll 1000 to buy those two new bikes.
    Same weight but more comfort for both of them. The Prophet wil be even 0.7 KG less then the Jekyll (12.3KG) if its true the weight for the Prophet is 11.6 KG.

    Smile Headshok on Scalpel

    Nice Scalpel.
    I see you are getting asked about the headshok.
    One evening, I swapped my front forks between my superV (ultra DL headshok) and my Scalpel (carbon lefty).
    I rode my Scalpel around with the headshok and noticed that the steering response felt quicker and I didnt really miss the longer travel of the Lefty and the front and rear felt evenly stiff. A great match.
    On the other hand, I rode my superV around and took it off a 4 foot drop a few times and the Lefty felt right at home with the smoother and longer travel rear (Jekyl rear swingarm & canecreek cloud 9 shock). Another great match.
    I have swapped them back the way they were and I weighed the shocks and the front wheels. They came out to the same weight overall because the lefty hub weighed less than the Hugi 240 disc hub with scewer. Same rim, spokes, disc, & tires.

    I agree Yeti makes a nice product but the ASX is a totally different bike than the Prophet. The Prophet is a trailbike and the ASX is a freeride bike that is comparable to the Bullit and Gemini not the Prophet. At least for 04 the ASX was a freeride bike. The ASX also costs more than a Gemini and a Bullit.

    frame switch

    do most lbs let you switch frames to get different colors. im going to get a prophet 600 but i like the color, the matte brown of the 1000. i also really like the team colors. it looks really sharp. even if i cant switch, i still really want one. whats more important is how it rides, not how it looks.

    Could you write a ride report of the new Scalpel? I'm considering(very low on my list tho), a Scalpel 1000.

    = Late responce =

    Hey double Dutch, apologies for not responding (don't as much in here I would like) but your Scalpel looks beaut. I already miss mine but it was too large. In meantime I test rode a Racer X 100 on Saturday and was blown away. medium build with V brakes to about 25lbs and it went like the wind! If I can get the right deal I will add this to my 5 Spot for my perfect stable. Only thing missing will be the beauty of the Cannondale welds! they are un-matched in my opinion.

    Good luck with you mounts.
