Which bike should i get?
Hi my name is Frankie and my first post is a question to everyone. Their are 3 bikes that i want but i can't figure out which one to get. They all have great parts on them and they're about the same price range. The first one is the 07Specialized P. series, 07 Cannondale Chase2 and the GT Ruckus DJ. I know that both the Specialized and the Cannondale come in a large but I'm not sure about the GT. One more thing I'm 6'2 and about 220 pounds. I would definitely appreciate everyone's input. Thanx for your time.

Since i use to freestyle back in the day i would probably use it more for street. But there are these new trails here in New York i wouldn't mind trying out. As for the Specialized i forgot to mention it was the P.2. Thanx for the reply jvnixon.

Nice. I'd suggest trying to see if you can find anyone or a shop that has these that you can try out for yourself.

These two are pretty similar in geometry and depending on how you like your bike setup, these all could be a winner.

I think i'm most likely going to get the P.2. I'm digging the paint job more on the P.2 than the Chase 2. Thanx for you input jvnixon.

Nice. P.2's are good bikes and I think you'll be happy with it.

I had a P.1 and P.3 previously as well and they worked fine.

Post up a picture when you get it if you want.
