Cannondale prophet 1000 or prophet 3
I'm pretty new to mountain biking but not cycling. I've been into road cycling for a couple of years and I work at a local bike shop. Here's the million dollar question. We have a 2005 prophet 1000 at the shop that has been sitting there since late '05 or early '06. As I have become interested in MTBing, I called the cannondale rep. and he will give me the cannondale employee pricing on the bike even though its a couple of years old. The other option is to order a new prophet 3 from the factory. There is very little difference between the two. The prophet 3 has better wheels, tires and crank. The prophet 1000 has a better color(matte mocha brown) and saddle. I dont really care for the color of the prophet 3(blue or raw, ick!). After the employee pricing, they are almost the same. So what do you guys and gals think?
