so i'm in debate to get a specialized transition comp 2005, or a P2K 2005. does anyone out there have either, or have any comments about either. i'm completely open to any suggestions.
thanks in advance

Don't have them or even tried them, but I do own a Cervelo so you know which one I vote for :)

the P2SL is a nice upgrade over the P2K. Both were out of my price range though. My Dual 10 is lots of fun though.......
Another Cervelo owner/fan here. I've ridden a P2K and P3. Great bikes. Their road bikes are fantactic. My brother-in-law recently bought a specialized (not sure which model). I have not ridden it, but it looks really nice and he loves it. I'm assuming if you've narrowed it down to two, that you know the geometries work for you. If not, check the geometry. If all things were equal, i.e. fit and price, I'd go with the Cervelo, as they made their name with tri bikes and their flippable seatpost allows for a lot of fitting range. Here's a great article on the P2K:

I've ridden the specialized transition elite, and I'd have to say that its the most comfortable bike I've ever tried. So much so that I just picked up that frame for my new build.

I have a P2 SL and absolutely love it. I also have a Specialized Road Bike (Allez Pro). Overall, I think Cervelo is producing better bikes than Specialized these days...but they're a lot harder to find. Post pics once you buy something.
