I have a prophet 3z which I have not been completely impressed with. Great specs but the suspension eats me alive. It doesn't seem to be much of an imporvement over my Jeckly which I sold to a friend. He didn't have a lot of money and the 3z was on sale so it worked out well for both of us. Or at least I thought it would. It seems I just haven't been able to find the sweet spot in setting up the suspension even though I have been in contact with both Manitou and Fox and have tried everhthing they have recommended. Or maybe that's as good as it can get with this bike.
I am curious if there are Prophet owners who have tried or owned several different brands of bikes and how the prophet compares.
