Specialized P2 for a 5'5" rider?

I am looking at buying a P2 long frame, but I have doubts about the length of the top tube, which is 23", and I'm 5'5". I will be taking a test ride later today with any luck, but I wanted to ask here to see if anyone my height is riding a long frame P2.

TIA

Well I'm 6'3" and ride a P3 long frame. The TT is still mighty short for me, I remember when buying it a friend said if you like doing x ups you are going to have to learn them one footed, witch is true in my case. If you going to test ride just see if it feels right and maybe see if you can ride a short version as well.

If your getttin a P2 for DJ's and street, a small frame would make it easier to throw around and do tricks.
