    Prophet 4x replica or 1 mx

    I'm having ar eally tough time deciding between these two. im looking to buy one of these as a little bit of everything kind of bike. base off component setup i believe the mx 1 would be a better choice, but the components on the 4-cross one i like better. dunno about that lefty though, thats my main concern. what do you think is better? im looking to do trailing, light freeride, some long distance riding, a little dj too. pics of the two bikes, first ones the 4-cross and the other is the mx 1

    I think you should get the fourcross and put the 36 on there, then it would be sweet

    I got the m1-x and but a DHX coil (2.25" stroke to put the rear travel up to 6") with a 36 Van on it. Great for pedaling and can take the hits!! One of the nicest bikes I have ever owned. For lightness and moderate abuse the lefty's own. I had a max on my old Jekyll and it took some abuse but not as strong as the 36.

    Watch out putting a 66 unless you are prepared

    The MX2 is mine, and see my problems with the top crown hitting the down tube and my solution, big pain in the a$$, but it works, it was way too racked out in the 67.5 degree, (which turned out to be around 65.5, so I run it in the 69, which is probably more like 67.5...
