    p1's are known for having a low-ish bottom bracket. (11.8"). it just depends whether you like the feel or not. if you want a high stance and snappy bmx feel, you'll want the Nighttrain or a Blackmarket Riot complete.

    I had an 08 P1 for 6 months and loved it. Low bottom bracket wasn'ta big deal. I'm on a Spank now and and actually liked the geometry and feel of the P1 slightly better, it didn't feel like an awkward 26er trying to be a 20". It didn't feel as cramped (I'm only 5'8''). Downside is the P1 was super heavy! The rims and hubs on it were pretty much garbage too. They were about as solid as some well built xc wheels. All in all, if I had it do over again I would rather of gone with a Night Train for sure.
