    Buy an 06? or wait for 07?

    Alright, so i'm stuck in this odd situation. I'm just bored of my old bike (P.2) I've upgraded some stuff on it, like the fork and stuff. but the old stuff on it is getting pretty floppy. pedals, wheelset, entire drivetrain pretty much. I mean I love my bike, but I am tired of the floppyness to it. I've got some money to spend. around $350.00 so that could buy myself a new drivetrain and wheelset.

    but I'm thinking of maybe just saveing up longer to maybe buy something really nice. or just make my P.2 really nice.

    But the other thing is, I rode a Regular size STP for the first time yesterday and I really liked it. it was the STP SS wich I think is a steal, the bike was so solid compared to how my P. felt. and if I sold my P. I would easily have enough to afford one. but then ofcourse I wouldent have my stance fork that I really like, but ohh well.

    but I also really like the 2007 Kona lineup. and the 07 stuff will be coming out in a little while. but also in a little while it'll be really hard to find something like a 06 STP SS. what should I do ? keep my current rig, get something like a 06 STP or just wait till the 07 lineup comes out?

    Keep your bike, because you'll b!tch about how the Kona or STP doesn't ride well and bash it. And you'll want a refund and stay with your P.2 anyways. We've already been through this.

    yes, of course, because the Konas arent nearly as flickable. but I've never been on a regular STP and the small ones were "too" flickable. dont judge me dude, you dont know me. its kinda like saying "ohh, you're going to hate a nemisis project frame, because it isnt a P.2" I only ranted about how I hated kona HT frames because I hated the one I owned. I didnt believe that they were made for street.

    cant we just put this behind eachother and stop flaming ? this is retarded.

    Stick with your P.2. Upgrade it.


    BTW, if you like that Stance, you'd come in your pants on a Pike.

    there is no small STP, the regular one is the smaller of the 2, the other is the long. and the STP SS is just a single speed, there is no steel one....

    I got confused I guess. I felt the "shorter" frame was too flickable. I guess this one was a "long" ? felt a lot different.

    yea I know. I've ridden some. I like the stance because theres nothing to adjust, opposite of the pike I think I'm going to order stiffer springs tho, cuz you know how sloppy plush they are when they come from Specialized.
