My cousin just bought one. Great bike. The gearing is a little rough on the knees and the rims aren't fantastic...but bike sure is fun to do tricks on. Short chainstay makes wheelies, manuals and wheelie drops tonnes of fun. Bunnyhopping machine

Congrats i want that frame sooo badly.

check out www.specialized.com and find a dealer near you, they should have no trouble ordering a frame for you...

I'm sure if you're smooth it'll take 4-5 feet easily. Have fun, and don't make the rest of us look bad.

It will easily take 5 feet, even if you are a total sketch master.

You cant get P2 frames alone new from specialized.

Those frames can take more than 5 feet quite easily, especially if it's too tranny.

Yeah, the P.s are very fun bikes. They just have a fun feel I ride mine. As others have said, they can handle 5 ft and greater, especially to tranny but if you land half-way decent they can handle it to flat as well.
