the stp looks to be more built for park and urban. the p1 is kinda looking to be a longer travel, more freeride type rig. the stp has front and rear brakes(MUCH better for trails) compared to the p1's rear only.

i say go for the stp. its a more urban set up, but trail ridable. the argyle 318 would be the selling point for me. the best dj fork (besides the 408). much better for urban and dj than the pike on the p1. also the tires on the stp are more trail friendly than the ones on the p1.
