evil is a good frame, but the P2 is a little bit lighter and you don't have to spend much money. also you could prolly come accross another evil again sometime in the future on ebay.Gman said:So I'm the process of trying to build up a hardtail for some urban riding and a little bit of dirt jumping. I already have a 03 p2 long frame with cranks. I was planning on buying stem, handlebars, and a wheelset off a local for some undisclosed amount. The thing is he is also selling his evil imperial frame for about 400 bucks and if I bought the frame I could probably get the other stuff for free. Now the question is do i by the evil and then sell the p2 or do i just go with what I already have? Ethier way I'm going to end up spending more money on the evil but I'm wondering if its worth it. I know the imperial is a pretty diesel frame I'm just wondering if its worth it over the p2.
