Wow! Awesome bike, did you find it used? If so do you mind me asking what you picked it up for?

Sweeeeeeeeet. I have the 06 P2 SL and I love it. Enjoy.
Ride it until your lungs and/or legs explode! I would suggest taking that pump off since there are some C02 on the back. Have fun, i have the p2sl as well, and love it
By now you've probably figured out. It's a sweet bike. I think that it's the best carbon bike value out there. In a world where bikes are designed to look pretty before going fast much of the time, this bike was designed the oher way around. Its got everything I consider neccessary to when I buy a bike next year....

+1, at least for pics, that thing looks like its loaded up for a cross country trip instead of of its intended use, screaming fast TT times.
I think they are the stock easton ones. this is the pic I was emailed when I bought the bike. It was shipped out from the owner yesterday too me!!! HOLLA! so I have yet to ride it or enjoy this fine piece of work. But boy howdy am I anticipating its arrival. and you can be certain all of those extras except the bento box will be coming right off.

The stock wheels are Shimano r550 I believe, at least on the 07 model. So either thats an older model or not stock.

The P2C is a great piece of machinery. Those are indeed the stock Easton Vistas which comes with the 06 model. As training wheels, they're holding up marvelously. And that Cervelo TT fork is a beauty when seen up close. I believe Cervelo deserves all the praise it gets. The only things I would like to change are the saddle (personal preference) and the brakes, as the stock system doesn't perform as good as the ultegra set on my road bike. The ride is harsher than my aluminum frame road bike, but a little discomfort is to be expected for additional speed.
I really dont think you'll get any negative feedback on this model :)
