Product Details

2013 Trek Cobia (Gary Fisher Collection)

Trek's Cobia features a light, butted, hydroformed-aluminum frame with G2 Geometry for the best riding position for fast climbs, rock-steady descents and rail-like cornering. And, with its 29-inch wheels and fat tires, the Cobia steamrolls over obstacles for excellent control and XC efficency. The durable parts package includes a plush, 100mm RockShox 29er fork, sweet Bontrager wheels, a precision-shifting SRAM/Shimano 3x10 drivetrain and powerful Avid disc brakes.

        Comments:

        Wish the stock headset was something cane creek or fsa, really big fan of the race face crank & bottom bracket. Bike is a good 1st or 2nd rig. Leaves you with room to still upgrade to another hardtail 29er but really hone your skills on a completely capable bike. Could have easily sold this bike for $1150 though not sure the 1300+ price tag is completely accurate.

          Trek nailed the color on this bike! I went in looking for a lower model, but the color sold me on this one. The shocks are with the extra few dollars also. I am new to mountain biking and this thing has surprised me at the way it handles on the trails and what it can take. Highly recommend this hard tail.

              Comments:

              I'm very pleased with my X-Cal 9! It fits me to a "T" in regard to price range, component quality, features, and comfort. I found similar (competitors) bikes to be either more expensive (if components were identical), or lower-grade components (for similarly priced bikes). My interest is more recreational, rather than 'avid' or competitive - 2-3 rides/week on local single-track, 'general purpose' trails. This weekend I learned that the bike is VERY FAST on the downhill (yee-ha!!). As a casual racer in the Ore2Shore, on each downhill stretch I passed others! Great fun! My friend bought an X-Cal 8 and likes it too, as I like mine. I suspect that weight is a bit higher than what some may like. If that's a concern for you, then I recommend to check it out beforehand.

This was my first ever MTB and i wanted good components on it, so i can enjoy my rides. Riding 20-30 miles a week on this since I got it and performs just get. I liked it so much that we bough similar product for my wife (Cali SLX). Just BUY IT :)
