Wait for Specialized Transition Pro or P3C?

So do I wait two months for the Pro or do I get the P3C in the next two weeks...either is already paid for in full....

P3C - you're talking about 8 weeks of head start training...

Whichever suits your fancy more. McCormack won 2007 Kona on a Transition. Fabian won the rainbow jersey in TT on a P3C. I think either will be fast enough.

Dear Jonny "wad", I mean that is the best possible way. Why wait? Unless you have a jons for a Specalized which are overpriced....go with the Cervelo. You'll be the envy of most regardless.

ride on Garth!

I made phone call after phone call until I found a shop that had the Specialized in my size. If you order one today, you won't be getting it until July. That's what I've keep getting told.

To really mess you up, the P4C will be coming along soon.

Get the Transition Pro. Cervelos are far far far too common these days and the Transition looks cooler. And the banter around the turbo session here suggests the Transition is more aero.

Went for the P3C. Not worried about a P4C anytime soon (the pro's would be riding prototypes by now). No more waiting, well only a little more. 1 and 1/2 week it will be here.
