I own a Kona Stuff and being that I rely on it as my primary bike, I know every aspect of it. The Stuff can take a beating and come back for more. Don't know much about the other two because I have enver rode a P2 and I left Giant before The Stp series came out.

Theyre all good bikes. You cant go wrong with any of them. Kona- Solid frame, Specialized- Proven Design and Giant- good geometry for DJ and Street.

STP2 is the lower end of the 3. I personally find that the stuff and the p2 would be pretty good for their price, considering the price jump - component jump. At certain points of price, there will be a significant component jump after 1-2 hundred dollars. Like you won't notice much between a 300-600 dollar bike. But when you turn 800 into 1200, you can get discs, better fork, better shifting, better cranks and such. For this price level, I would love the p2!!

I want the kona shred. It's nice this year for but next year its prices raise. For us, its a nasty 100 bucks. It's okay but it's components are down lower.

That is what I have...I love it to death. The only problem is the damn pedal broke, and it is only like 2 weeks old. Luckily, the LBS replaced it, no questions asked.
