my friend has one. i love that thing everything is so solid on it. its actually pretty light feeling and the sherman jumper is awesome. everything is super nice on the bike and comes with everything you need for dj/urban and even a little 4x

thanks for your thoughts and stuff. also i was wondering what size do you think i should get. Im about 5-7 and like 130 pounds. Should i get the long or short P.3. The short has a stand over height of 25.5 inches and a wheel base of 1012mm. The long has a stand over height of 26.5 inches and a wheel base of 1048mm. so what do you think?

Short for sure! You want to be able to toss it around some and you're definitely not on the oversized end of the spectrum.

the only ghey thing about short P series is that you hit your foot on the tire when the crank is forward (i have size 10.5 feet)

ive ridden p.3s setup with all different styles. from a boxxer world cup to a DJII, the bike is really great. its strong and launches in the air pretty easily. I wouldnt recommend running it with a big DC for dj, but other than that id say yes on getting one.
