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:

    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.

        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.

              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.
