    Want to buy: Prophet MX frame

    Hi

    I'm looking for a Prophet MX frame size large. I would like the 12 mm through axle dropouts. Possibly also interested in the regular Prophet. Preferable the frame with slacker HA settings at 65.5 and 67. Hit me with a PM or reply in the thread if you have anything that may be interesting or know where I can find one.

    Thanks

    Yes I've seen that. It's saved in my watch list
    But it's an XL and the XLs have 650 mm top tubes which is really long (L has 625 mm). My current Large frame has 606 mm top tube so I'm a bit afraid it's going to be way to big even with a 50mm stem.

    Howdy!

    I'm not sure if you know this already, but to my knowledge all the Prophet frames are the same in terms of frame geometry. Differences in complete bikes come from fork height, lower headset cup height and shock length. (1, 2)

    Happy trails!

    Indeedy, 140mm forks give an headstock angle of 69/67.5, 160mm forks supply the 67/65.5 angles. Obviously the MX has more bracing to take the longer fork though.

    and shock length
    Nope they all have the same shock length to my knowledge, ppl do change it but orignally there all 200/50mm (unless it's an European "SL" which had 190/45mm)
