    Hi All, I am very impress by what you guys can do! I am from xc background and would like to start from basic in FR. I am 5 11' and about 200lbs. Looking at 2013 spec p3 or p26pro. Are they good and strong enough, coz I am heavy! Thank you for the help

    Either should be adequate, I am not sure about the 2013 completes but I know past p series bikes rims were suspect for durability. I would guess that has been taken care of though?
    Want a one of a kind bike? Message me for a one of a kind paint job.

    The internet is a tough place to ride

    Take a look at the Eastern Night Train. It's only a couple more hundred dollars with better spec'd parts and a lifetime warranty on the frame.
