So I currently have a '98 Super V and its a great bike but I'd really like to get a little more travel. Since it was my dad's hand-me-down when he got a prophet in '05 I figured I'd talk to him about the prospect of turning it into an uber-v before I went and started buying parts/measuring/cutting it for the conversion. He talked to our LBS about it and neither of them want me to do it and they think I just need to buck up and get a newer bike and craigslist yielded what I think is a pretty sweet deal for an '06 Prophet 1000. The only mod he has done was replacing the lefty with the Marz Z1 Freeride which he said fixed a pogo-sticking problem he thought the bike had. I think he has changed the tires from the highrollers (hopefully) but I can't tell from specs or picture. He's asking $800 which is pretty close to what would need to be spent on the Uber anyways and my dad said he would help rather than watching me "butcher" the super V. So those are my options, other than saving up for a new steed eventually but being in college right now makes that a more difficult option. Thoughts/opinions are requested on whether I should pursue the Uber, Prophet, or just ride the Super til I can afford something new out of the shop with warranty and all that good stuff.
