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.

Some glitches, but I love my Cobia!

Comments:

It took a couple of rides to get comfortable with the steering and the bike's geometry, but after a couple dozen miles, she feels tight, direct and natural. Initially, the seat position felt awkwardly high and the handle bar seemed too wide. But now, I've really come to love the feel of the bike and find myself going faster on descents and technical sections of mountain bike trails. Absolutely love the stopping power of the brakes and the suspension does a great job of absorbing the terrain while maintaining the front tire under control. My only complaints are that the SRAM drivetrain can't seem to stay in adjustment. I have occasional issues getting the bike to shift and some instances where the chain binds. The problem seems to be more with the derailers. The tight clearances between the bike frame and some of the moving parts make it easy for mud and dirt to clog things up. But I'd still buy it again!

Comments:

I bought the 2012 model and rode if for a little less than a year. If you can get this bike on sale it's a good value. That said I was not particularly impressed. The bike quickly developed a squeak that annoyed me every time I rode it. My local dealer couldn't figure out what it was. The handling is obviously designed for fast, smooth, flowing trails, and not the typically rocky technical chop we have on the Front Range. The brakes on the '12 model are plain awful and the suspension is seriously under dampened for anyone over 170 lbs.

Comments:

The front fork has great suspension and the lockout helps a ton when riding to a trail! you get more for the price on this bike than any other bike out there! not to expensive and not to cheap just right! Which makes for a great bike when your on a budget but ride enough where you still want a good bike!I recommend this bike to anyone who wants a good bike but doesn't want to spend to much!

    This is a great bike. I love the air shocks, the cockpit is comfortable. Only changes made were to upgrade the pedals, but I am sure thats what everyone does.

      First off this bike ROCKS!, I've owned the 2011 model for about a year, put more than 1000 miles on it over road and rock. This bike climbs excellent, and I ride up on everyone (even other 29ers) with almost no effort. The gearing is great for high end speed and climbing. I'm amazed at the speed this bike gets too with little effort. I have also ridden this along with road bikes, and yes they beat me on the hills, but even with my big knobby tires, I can stay up with these guys everywhere else, I think it secretly ticks them off.All in all a great bike, about the only thing I can say negative is that the back break is loud, and I did switch out the seat. I would highly recommend this bike.Thanks

        I bought this bike a couple of weeks ago and it's great. The only thing that kept me from buying it was the color, but at a decent price with decent components I purchased the bike and cant wait to go riding again

        Comments:

        Former serious BMX racer grown up "old guy", transitioned into MTB. I rode a TREK Y for many years and went "Back" to a hard tail. Actually a huge jump foreward. This bike is decently light, comfortable to ride ( even with the seat ). I switched to riser bars and different pedals. For a weekend warrior this is an excellent bike.

        I ride 2-3x a week and this is a great bike. Other than a tune up I haven't had any issues with it. It will ride over anything and corners well. This is an excellent entry level bike until you are ready to get a full suspension bike.

          My first real mountain bike with working front suspension. So far I've just been using it for road work, hopefully I will get it on some trails soon. I'm a little older, so I swapped the stem for a 17deg and my back is much happier. Many have complained about the saddle, but after many multi hour rides, I have to say that it's actually not bad. Shifting seems to work better when not pedaling. Ex. Stop pedaling, shift, then ease back to it. Seems to not clank that way. Easier on the rear sprocket. Not sure if this is right. If you want a quality bike that can go almost anywhere and not break the bank, then the Cobia should be one of your options.

          Comments:

          Loving the '12 Cobia. Great for single track riding this spring, rolls over rocks and obstacles. Great air fork and 10 speed shifting. Back brake needs adjustment again in less then 50 miles of riding but overall a great value for a well-equipped 29er.
