    Another question.

    I am aiming at getting a Specialized P.2. Is this bike good at all?
    Would this bike be good for park riding/trail riding/casual riding?

    It will be good for park riding and certain trail riding... not trails with much climbing and it won't be much fun on smooth trails. It'll probably be fine for casual riding though.. at least shorter ones.


    Do you have a Kona or Giant dealer there also?
    Might check out the Stuff or STP1 as well.

    I ride my P.1 on trails and it pretty much sucks, but its not really designed for that anyways. Its decent enough I can get around our freeride trails but after 10-15mi of trailriding I am completely worn out. By contrast on a cross country bike 25+ mi isn't bad.
