Specialized P-bikes

For those of you that have ridden and have experiance with both the P1 and the P3...... How well does the P1 compare to the 3 in reliability and in over all ride feel? Is the 3 worth the extra coin?

Personally, If I had the money, I'd spend the extra for the P3 just for the better components, primarily the TA fork.

Just wondering, where specifically where do you plan to use it?

It is going to be a Ray's bike and used by son at the local skate park and on the street.

Its a cool place especially with the addition of the dirt jump area for the summer.

Oh, I'd not heard of that. That sounds fun.

My goal is to get out there next winter at least once.
