I'm probably going to get the cro-moly 2005 Specialized P.1 after a while of not knowing what to look at and not going to my LBS - the freeride hardtail thread helped a lot, thanks MadMan
The European one (I'm in England) has a difference to the bike on the above link - a Hayes HMX-2 front disc. I will also get the bike with a 9spd deore and a chain guide. Anyway, I want to swap the Static for a longer travel fork directly out of the bike shop so I need suggestions for a 130mm (I don't care about the year of it) travel fork in the same price range as the Static. I will go £50, maybe more, above the price of the Static (£200 I think, so 350-ish USD). Oh, and it's not essential, but it would be great if it had 100/130mm adjustable travel.
Thanks a lot, (and well done for surviving to the end of this! )
