I'm wondering about your guys take on the 2010 Specialized P.1 AM. To me it looks like a beefed up version of the rockhopper(the geometry is close to the same).
I have a friend riding an old steel rigid bike from about 1990. They found the rim brake version of the P.1 for a pretty good deal($300) brand new w/ warranty. The rigid bike has been working all right for them, but they have definitely been jonesing for a newer bike.
The way I see it, the P.1 offers better geometry and fit and a suspension fork(albeit not a great one) and newer crisper components. It falls short in not having discs, which could probably be added down the line for $200-250(BB7s, and wheels, I can do the work for free). It's also heavier than the old DB rigid their currently on.
Any advice? Also, they'd rather not go used.
