newbie needs Help, please read
Ok, I've done some research, and A LOT of calling around. I really want to buy a specialized P series, preferably P1. Is this a good bike? I've gone to mtbr.com and searched their reviews and stuff, but it is soo vague. I don't necessarily need some in depth analysis (although that would be nice), but maybe just a few more opinions about alternatives, what's good about this bike, what's bad? are the components any good? I mean i've heard they are just OKAY, but i'm a newbie, do i need the same components as someone with a 1300 dollar bike? Of course I'd like to, but for the riding I will do (some short commuting (no greater than 6 miles) and trail riding (nothing crazy) will this suffice? Thanks. sorry for the long post!
