The Specialized.



Really, the Kilo and the S22 aren't really in the same world as the P2C are they? I don't know Treks or Kuotas but it would seem the P2Sl would be more of a comparison to the Kilo and S22. But given your question, P2C.

It depends on how you want to ride. If you subscribe to the steeper is better philosophy, stay away from the trek. If you want it to feel more slack, like a road bike, avoid the QR. Fit is the key. Some people won't be able to ride slack and ride in the aero position. Others can't get comfortable on a steep seat angle, as the QR and the P2 provide. My best recommendation is to read Dan Empfield's articles on fit at slowtwitch.com. The P2 is probably the most versatile of the group, allowing for you to reverse the seatpost and change the seat tube angle to suit your needs. From personal experience with Cervelo, moving to the forward position was the best thing I did fit wise, reinforcing my belief that Empfield has tri fit dialed in. Hope this helps, and good luck with the search.

Specialized S-Works Transition.

Other than that - fit.
