    What year is this specialized p1?
    I'm looking at this bike on craigslist, its a pretty good deal i think even though i'd definitely be swapping out some parts. One concern i have though is that in the listing the seller calls it a 2009 model however, from what research i've done on the bike it seems to be a 2005 or earlier due to the shape of the top tube. Could someone with more knowledge chime in and help me out?

    thanks.

    Definitely older. 2004/05 or so. Look it up in bikepedia. But it's for sure not a 2009

    Thanks for the help. From some things i found on the specialized archives it looks most like a 2003 p.2. All the p.1's that i've seen are a single speed set up. Is that right?

    The placement of the specialized graphic makes me think that it is a 2003.

    Thanks again for any and all help.

    That fork is not original to the bike and looks kinda lame.

    Someone should be shot for putting that stem on a P1

    Yeah the bike looked pretty lame but even after swapping some parts it would have been a good deal. Ended up passing on it. It was a 2003 model but the guy selling it still thinks it's an '09. The deal was just a little to sketchy.
