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.

    This is one awesome bike! I've had it a little over a week, ridden it 6 of those 7 days and absolutely love it! The ride is confident and smooth. It handles sharp turns great, much better than I had anticipated. I had an older Trek 26" for 8 years and was ready for an upgrade. I wanted disc brakes and 29" wheels. I chose this bike based on components and I'll admit, color. I couldn't have made a better choice. This bike rocks! The color is certainly eye catching, and looks great covered in mud let me add. But the bike itself is comfy and have I mentioned FAST! Lightweight, the trails here around Mammoth Cave and Land Between the Lakes are perfect single track for this bike. I find myself going much faster than my older bike, and faster with every lap on this bike. It's amazing how easily those 29" tires roll over roots and rocks. The disc brakes stop without any effort. The air fork on the 9 is fast and responsive. It handles everything I've thrown at it so far with ease. I am honestly in love with this bike. So so glad I upgraded and pumped I did to a Trek Excaliber 9. You won't be disappointed with this bike. Especially with the bang you get for your buck! Buy this bike and ride the heck out of it!

    Comments:

    A really good step between casual riding, and more intense trail bashing, jumps and DH riding, Able to climb easily, descend very well, and gets to speed very well. Great brakes as well. If you are going to do anything beyond very minor trail riding, you have to upgrade the tires. The stock tires slide out on anything wet or loose.

        Coming from a seven year old 26er, this is a completely different experience. The larger tire size handles much better than I expected. Even though I am going a lot faster on the trails, I feel confident in the way the bike handles. This bike has truly brought a lot more joy to riding. The only thing I wish was different is that the brake cable was also routed through the frame, so that it isn't squeezed on my bike rack during transport.

        Comments:

        I use this bike for my short commute and cross country riding. I love the 2x10 gearing, the sizing the generally good components and that the wheels are Tubeless ready. I have had to change a couple of components. Firstly I found the steering a bit lazy and the bike a little long in the reach. So I fitted a shorter (65mm) stem, I now sit on the bike more naturally and it turns in quicker. Secondly, the braking felt out of balance, so I fitted a 180 mm front disc and adaptor. I have now gone tubeless, with Bontrager's rim strips valves, asymmetric rim strips and sealant and tubeless tyres more suited to the local environment. Fitting wasn't too hard and I only had to reseat the tyres once to ensure a good seal. I was disappointed that the tyres that are supplied are not tubeless ready, this is probably to target market pricing though. I also went for the black green paint combination as I thought the powder blue and orange didn't look quite right with a black fork, but that's just my personal taste. I look forward to putting many miles underneath this bikes wheels.

            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.
