    KBuc - Well, was actually sort of interested and surprised snorring sound, or whatever they do. Seemed friendly enough, and my lunch wasn't addressed, so I concluded it that way. Kuba understands "here doggy, got some delicious stuff here!" in about 184 languages

    Yeah... but it doesn't necessarily work the other way round Ok, I guess we have to let go of the subject, or the boss is likely to kill us for writing aside of the thread's topic. Is nice to talk though. Regards to U2. (sorry Boss, we are talking about the doggies, as they keep us willing to go for a ride, no matter what the weather is (mine can sleep in peace when I finally decide to leave...or try to eat our cat in the meantime))

    Return policy is relatively lenient and she has saw both bikes a few months ago. I am not worried about the color, more about suitability for her size in our local terain.

    Thanks

    I own a 2013 Mamba and got a great deal.

    You will not regret either purchase.
    how much did you purchase yours for?

    what prices have you guys seen these sell for?

    thanks,

    wheelsize comparison

    Hi, anyone who's interested in 29" may wish to read this: SCOTT Sports - Genius ; check about the middle of the page - it is devoted to the DH Genius series, but what it says about wheelsizes (26/27,5/29) regards all bike types actually. Or just click the wheelsize technology blue button...

    I just test rode a '12 Giant XTC and '12 Felt Nine Comp.

    To me the XTC felt sharp. Stiff and racy. Coming from road, I like that feeling. The Nine Comp felt sluggish by comparison, especially in turning, not sure why, heavier wheels and fork maybe?

    I still need to test an X-Caliber, but at this point I'm giving the XTC an edge over the Cobia for my pick.

    Tallboy LTc is the best bike I have ridden... By a mile. The Path had an XT demo 2012 on sale for $2500

    Well I bought a '12 Trek X-Caliber. Spend a good bit of time choosing frame size (5'10", 32 inseam). For me either 19 or 17.5 would've worked, but on the 19 I was just a bit too stretched up top.

    $1250+tax (put it on Trek's 12 month no interest card). Shop offers lifetime free adjustments, 30-day exchange, plus a $125 loyalty gift card for use in the shop.

    well ...that works!!! the $125 card would have been gone in 2 secs if it was me... pretty new helmet or glasses or shoes or pedals or.....


    The best bike you can buy is the one you will ACTUALLY ride..

    Congrats!

    Good price/great bike.

    I was a hard fit on size too. 5'6". Had 15.5 but just felt too cramped..traded for a 17.5 and this works for me.

    I just bough a '12 Trek X-Call and am thoroughly convinced it is the best purchase I have ever made. The G2 geometry that Trek uses is great, and I know that Cobia is the exact same frame. I'd vote the Cobia. The air fork is nice to have as well.

    The 2012 comes with a dual air Reba-- much more tuneable than the current solo air versions Sram has decided to produce. Get one while you can and a little stretch now over the cost of a Cobia will save you in the next year or three from having to upgrade.
