 i just got it a few days ago and so far i love the frame of it. A 100mm fork would be nicer and the rims bend pretty easy. I took it off a 9 stair drop the first day i got it and already flattened the back rim a bit. Other than that its a great bike just needs a couple upgrades.

 I have the 2006 P.2 and I love it. It is a light and strong frame. I dont like the frox that came with it but so I did change them to FOX after they needed a rebuild kit. Overall the frame is strong, light, and most important, sexy. The shox should be replaced but I didnt hate them. All the other parts, bars, stem, cranks, BB, etc, held up really nicely.

 This bike is solid. very nice to ride. brakes handle well on pavement but skid a little bit when making quick stops on dirt. very light and easy to transport to your local dj park. so pros: light, crank arms are very smooth, great tires. Cons: the shifters could be a little more responsive, brakes, no waterbottle holder screws (even dirt jumpers get thirsty).
all in all its a wicked bike.

peace

 This bike is built tough, and it is fairly light. I love it for jumping, and learning trials stuff. It's a lot of fun and really easy to throw around. The components are fairly decent, I have upgraded a few things though. My only complaint being that I have the short frame is that I cannot do bar spins without hitting the tire on my pedal. Overall it's a great bike.

 A bit on the heavier side but a month with it and itll feel like a feather. I would replace the bashguard with an aluminum one. Mine took 1 good hit and it was busted into 3 pieces. Im sure a sprocket stall would kill it too. The DJ2 on it is really nice although I would prefer the 100mm but 80 will do the job. The juicy 3s are ok once worn in but dont expect to stop on a dime with these. Your almost definitely better off getting some 5 or 7s. I torched the rear rim landing a few 180s off chamber only a month into riding it. Replaced it with a Mavic 729 and havent had an issue since. I would suggest replacing the rims if you are an abusive rider. Somehow the x5 got mangled and replaced it with an x9 and havent had an issue since. 10/10 bike score

 I am not a very big fan of the stock components (which I've broken most of) I love it. The frame is tough and has everything a dj/street, park rider would ask for. I love it and when I grow out of it I'll probably get a P3 frame.

 I bought a 06 P2 a few years back, i ride the snot out of the bike and it has never failed me. the bike is literally all stock except for the seat, peddles, and single speed kit. Its a great beginners bike and definatly worthy of the specialized name!

 fun bike i love the way it handles and i love how i can ride the thing it so many different terrains such as dirt, street, and even some trails. The only thing i dislike about this bike is the gearing. It is a little funkys when it shifts and it is a little heavy but other than that it is an awesome bike to ride

 i bought the 2008 version of this bike-i upgraded the fork and wheelset immediatly, because the pike is way better than the dj2 and the wheels bend like a paper clip-another part about this bike that is not to great is the brakes-for the 2009 they made a good desicion and upgraded to juicy 3 which are much better-(don't worry about that) other than that it is great, very clean over jumps and can handle good jumps and bumps-this bike is very fun to ride over big dirt jumps or park;.--- Another point:Because the wheel is so close to the frame it allows this bike to easily manual-i would recomend this if you are a dirt jumper with a decent amount of cash-be warned the wheels bend easily and there a quiet a few parts that could be nicer or upgraded-specialized has done a good job designing the frame

 Love the P.2. It was the first real mountain bike I ever owned. I learned how to dirt jump and freeride on it and it took the abuse like a champion. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for this bike!!

 I've ridden a Specialized P2 for 5 years. The bike is super solid. Just had an oportunity to ride the 09 P2 and was super impressed! A little different feeling but still seemed to have that solid, agile specialized feel.

 YEAH better than the over rated P.1 by far


Could do with a better choice of forks and wider bars but other than that a great bike...

 Strong, light, and great in the air. The offset of the rear triangle is good for generic hubs, but f*cks up the purpose of singlespeed, wider-flanged hubs..

Specialized P.2 (MSRP $1350) — P. BIKES ARE A LIFESTYLE, born and bred with the integrity to push the limits of physics at your favorite jumps, streets and skate parks. All-over cold forgings, super short chainstays, high-riser jump bars and short extension stems make P. bikes durable and nimble enough to keep you moving up, not breaking down.

Berrecloth tested and approved, our A1 Premium Aluminum frame uses a double-butted ORE down tube, super-strong forged head tube and horizontal dropouts with hardware for single and multi-speed options.

The bomb-proof Marzocchi DJ2 fork is built for braun with 80mm of air-assisted, coil-sprung travel, 32mm alloy stanchions and one-piece magnesium lower.

Specialized 3D-forged Aggro stem is stiff and tough and accepts a 31.8mm diameter alloy riser bar: 680mm width and 8-degree back/upsweep for perfect positioning.

Avid Juicy 3 hydraulic disc brakes provide sure and smooth stopping power; dual-piston calipers with an 160mm G2 Clean Sweep rotor in front and 140mm G2 Clean Sweep rotor in back.

The SRAM X5 rear derailleur offers fast, precise shifts.

26x2.3-inch Rhythm Lite Control tires have a dual compound tread that rolls fast in the transition, with extra grip on the shoulders for precise cornering in the dirt.

The Fuse Lo Pro saddle is designed for comfort, ease of movement and strength to handle hard landings.

Fuse tubular three-piece Cr-Mo cranks are stiff and durable for an unwavering pedal platform; a polycarbonate bash guard and ISCG chain guide complete the bomb-proof package. In short: the perfect bike for a post-9/11 America.
