    What is your intended use?

    STP stands for Street, Trails (DJs), Park.

    And the Jamis looks like it's more suited as a hardtail freerider.

    To me you are looking at 2 different types of bikes.

    I do alittle bit of it all. Ill hit the park one day and then some pump tracks the next and maybe some trials that night.

    I see both of these bikes as being capable of the same things

    The bikes are very different. The geometry of the Komodo will be slacker and the stays longer. The Komodo is more of a All Mountain hardtail with some freeride thrown in. The STP is as its name implies: Street, Trail, Park.

    The new Komodo has a different geometry more oriented towards street and DJ. But the STP is still a bit tighter.

    I would choose STP over p2. The p.bikes have kind of an awkward geometry. The STP just feels more lively. It's easy to pop up and throw around.

    It's hard to hide the weight of the P bikes on the ground or in the air. I ride one and would rather of gone with an STP. Only drawback of the STP for me was the lack of horizontal dropouts. If you plan on running gears 100% of the time then no big deal.

    stp has a 4 inch fork, p2 has 2 inches.

    I just bought an stp and I'm pretty happy with it.
