Anyone here using a Prophet for 4x/DS and All-Mountain use? How tall are you and what size frame are you riding? On paper the small looks perfect for me at 5'10", but I can't believe the smallest size Prophet they make is as big as a medium MKIII. The 75 degree SA and 67.5 HA would actually give it a larger front center than the medium MKIII.

So back to the question, can you answer it? Thanks.

I rode a Small MX1 several times, and I'm 6'0", on the climbs it was a little cramped, but on the DHs, it ripped, easy to thrown around, would be perfect for DS/4X. At my height, if I was using it for purely 4X/DS, I would go w/ a Small.

I'm 5'11 and I had a large. It was too big, and I was using it as a trail bike. The TT on that bike was 24.5 inches. Medium is 23.5, and that's what I'd do next time.

6'4", Large is perfect for me. My girlfriend is 5'10" and rode it a few times, works good for a trail/xc bike for her, but the TT is too long for anything fun.
