2013 Trek Mamba (Gary Fisher Collection)

Jump head-first into the off-road world aboard Trek's Mamba. This cool dirt-worthy bike starts with a lightweight Gold aluminum frame with Gary Fisher's proven G2 geometry. Complementing the sublime ride is a RockShox fork that gives you 100mm of travel to add even more cush and steeering confidence to the big 29-inch wheels. Proven parts hang off the sweet frame and fork with Bontrager disc wheels with Hayes disc brakes. And, you also get the solid performance of Shimano shifting and the quality of Bontrager controls. It all adds up for a ride that truly has to be ridden and ridden hard!

Comments:

This is a great entry-level MTB, but, being "entry-level," certain parts can use upgrading. I replaced the tires and pedals before I took delivery. Shortly thereafter, the grips, but beyond that, have only needed the front caliper and front derailer adjusted (which my LBS does for free). I plan to upgrade the saddle, stem, and seat post at a later date, but all are perfectly useable as-is for the entire life of the bike if need be. It's a bit heavy, but since I no longer live in an apartment, that doesn't matter to me much. Now that I've made it my own, I absolutely love my new Mamba and can't get enough seat time on it. I find that it loves dirt, rocks, and even sand (thanks to those big, chunky tires I had installed), and it's kept up with everything I've thrown at it so far. It's decent on serious uphill ascents, too, as long as I'm quick on the gear shifts. I'm a big Trek fan and got almost 16 years out of my old 930, so I expect to get at least that many out of this one, too. In short, this is a great basis for a relatively serious rider with just a few upgrades, and will be just as good for a not-so-serious rider with no upgrades at all. I would absolutely recommend this bike to a friend, and have already done so several times.

Comments:

Awesome bike to get started in the sport!I knew I enjoyed the sport as I had some experience with riding in middle school during summer camp about 10 years ago. I finally moved to a place in the US with some decent trails and a disposable income to utilize. So, I did my research. At purchase time, I was definitely still a novice and didn't want the hand holding of a full suspension -- so I started with a decent hardtail. I picked this bike as it was recommended by bikeradar.com as the BEST bike for the price. I couldn't agree more with their review. It is an awesome value (components wise) and the overall bike handles excellent for the money! My skills have quickly progressed on this bike and I definitely have caught the mountain biking bug. I'm already keeping up with and even dusting some of my friends who have been riding for years! I'll probably upgrade to a nicer bike when I feel like my skills have outgrown it. But right now; I'm smitten.

Great bike for the price. The Mamba has the same frame and geometry as the Trek 29er Race collection bikes that are more expensive and of course with better components. If you can afford it go with the better bikes or you can do what I did, upgrade the components slowly and get what you want. Over the past year I have change the drive train to a 1x9 with a SRAM X9 derailleur and shifter, wheel set to Crank Brothers Cobalt XC, Crack Brothers Egg Beaters, ODI Rouge grips and Bontrager Team Issue tires. I have never had any major issues with the bike and like anything else I take care of it and check it before and after every ride.

Great bike overall

Pros

  • Versatile

Cons

  • Poor Components

Best Uses

  • Commuting/City
  • Mountain Biking

Comments:

The handling and geometry of a 29er really make a difference out on the trail. You are easily able to overcome obstacles that would be trying on a 26" bike. The only downside to this bike is that it is not trail ready. It has terrible brakes and a headset that has come loose on the two times that I have had it off road. I am upgrading those components and it should be fine. Beware that bike is not trail ready as is.

Great bike/glaring weaknesses

By Madarcho

Pros

  • Versatile

Cons

  • Poor Component Selection

Best Uses

  • Mountain Biking
  • Commuting/City

Comments:

The bike itself is very good, however Trek made the mistake of including a horrible stem and very weak brakes on this model. The brakes are barely adequate, even after a bleeding from the LBS. The stem comes loose during each trail ride, despite an inspection from the LBS, I have two other mountain bikes and have NEVER had this issue, each of these bikes are ridden on the same trails. For safety reasons I would not recommend this bike unless you plan on switching the brakes and stem right off, which is what I am now going to do.

    I have had several Treks, some more expensive but I enjoy this one more than any other one. Wish the seat were more comfortable but that's an easy fix.

      Comments:

      This 29er is Ideal for bikers who don't often ride on technical trails. The Wheels are so heavy including the tires. Owned this bike since April 2012 and the REAR derailer is not durable. If you're into Racing then buy a MTB that has XT/XTR components so you can compete well.

      Had this bike 3 months now and I just love it! Great on trails and road, nice and smooth ride, glad I didn't get a "Dual Sport" bike that I was thinking of. Love the disc brakes...almost too good at times...they stop you..RIGHT NOW!! The seat that comes with the bike was junk so I changed it and the pedals will be next to go...The screws that hold the cleat part on the pedal back out all the time, so much so that one of the reflectors popped right off! Other than that I love the bike and it looks great in the blue & white too! Highly recommended!
