Why do this years Cannondale Prophets have less travel?

If I recall correctly last years had ~16cm, while this years has 14cm. does anyone know the reason for this change?

Jesus...those bikes are just hideous. I am sure they ride great, but it is nice to have a bike look and ride great. Could Cannondale possibly make bikes that are any uglier?

Thats like the RM slayer. All that erector set crap in the middle of the triangle. Disgusting.

Give me a nice clean looking bike like Transition or Turner (many others) /rant

While the name sounds cool, I certainly agree with the ugly sentiment. Sense cannondale is so good at turning out hideous looking bikes, the Raven is actually the only Cannondale mountain bike I ever liked.

Personally I don't mind the appearance at all.

look what i just won http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...DME:L:RTQ:US:1
the seller recomended that i grease the pedals and the rear derailer before i install them. i've installed pedals and derailers before it's just a little peculiar.

i don't mean to hijack this thread but i've been having trouble making a new thread
