    Not yet, but the boys in PA say the wheels should work. You'd have to remove the brace from the Rush, but the Prophet doesn't have one. I have not asked about the hard tails.

    Wink I Have!

    Cannondale:

    08 Prophet : FITS, bit I didn't let the shock free of air, fits the stays, about 5 mm clearance.
    Rush Carbon: No FIT, not a chance....
    F3, hardtail: FIT, Very close to the Front der.
    Headshock Ultra, NO GO. sorry HS users.

    CHT,

    Good news about the F3.

    Did the chainstay brace on the Rush prevent the wheel from going in?
    The guys at C'dale say the brace can be removed with a slight (5%) reduction in rear end stiffness.

    Yeah, I tried the Fattie too... not even close. I didn't bother to mention it because I assumed everyone was on Lefties now..

    yerp.

    The wheels got into the drops with the Rush, just jammed into that removable brace.
    Also, the F3's seatstay bridge was VERY close to the tire, a 2.1 or 2.0 would be perfect.
    Check the blog, updates are posted!

    Incse you haven't visited the 650B Blog. Here is the Prophet with its shock fully compressed, 650B equipped. Good luck!

    damn you too Kirk!
    I can barely afford tuition, don't you dare give me ideas about misappropriating a student loan!
    (plus I've already got a lefty 29er wheel built up for my XC bike, that cash is gone already)
