    Were the early Prophet's 1.5 headtube?

    I vaguely remember that some of the earlier models were not 1.5 headtubes. Is that the case?

    Nope. They were all designed to accomodate a Lefty.

    So what was the actual measurement?

    I ask in all seriousness as I've been whacking 49/49 headsets into Prophets for years, including my own. You've set me on flared head tube paranoia...

    All the Prophet frames were a OnePointFive industry standard headtube. The Cannondale headset cups pressed into the frame were designed to accommodate the Lefty bearings and steerer tube. However, you could knock these cups out and press in a 3rd party headset. Something with a 49.6 mm measurement such as an EC49 or a ZS49 frame Cane Creek.

    I ran a Fox Float in mine back when I had it no Problem. Transferred the HS to a Caffeine and it is still running.
