I bought a Prophet because when I got back into riding I wanted a bike that could handle my 260 lbs. I never rode a full suspension bike but knew that I liked going down hills more then up so the aurgument of, "A hard tail will make you climb so much faster then a squishy bike" didnt' mean much to me. Instead I sided with the, "Full suspension bikes will beat a hard tail down the trail every time" quote. None-the-less I have an 05 Prophet 800 but would like to lock out my rear end. What shocks do you guys reccomend and why? I looked a the new Fox RP23 just because that seems to be what a lot of the new bikes are coming with. What's the big differnce between that and the other shocks that have the extra dohickie hanging off of them (brain) other then weight? The last question is why doesn't the lefty on the prophet lock out? It does on my wifes rush. Thanks ahead of time for any answers!
