    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 used to have a large prophet that i used mostly as my xc bike for a while. I'm 6' and the large was decent but i think for a freeride/dual application medium would be the size i would go with for me. Like i said, i used it mostly for all mountain and used it on our dh trail just a few times so if you want a bike to suit all purposes get a medium.

    I'm 5'11" and rode a medium Prophet. The small is pretty small, especially for AM.
