I worse than most for paying for large frame p2s.

But this is getting a little silly as a starting bid. There also one of the ruffest sets I have seen for a while.

I think they'll find it hard to shift them at that price

the P2 legend has gotten a bit mad. I bought a brand new set from Charlie the bike monger for £55 in 2012 then got £96 on abay auction for them 2-hand only 14-months later. I actually found them to give quite a harsh ride compared with traditional sloper rigids.


a good well finished product but very overhyped IMHO

£49.50 for the Sports and £60/£70 for the triple butted is more the norm.
These are in poor condition.

I ride a triple butted P2 on my '95 Explosif and most of the time I don't miss a suspension fork, really, I still get surprised on its absorption ability.
