    Trek X-Caliber 9

    So today I popped into one of the closest bike shop and tested the '14 Trek X-Caliber 9. Loved it. Unfortunately, they didn't have my size in stock so had to order one. And I'm going away for 10 days next week. Can't wait to return from Hawaii to start riding it! Anyone else have the same bike? Opinions?

    I almost bought an 8 but after test riding the superfly 5 I had to have it. They did not have an xcal9 to ride so I wasn't able to compare the two.

    You might get more responses if you move this to the Trek forum.

    I don't have a X-Cal 9 (I have a Cobia- close enough), but I always recommend the X-Cal as a nice entry level bike, but still a good bike for actual mountain biking.

    Well, I picked the X-Cal 9 up today. First ride was about 6-7 miles, definitely different from riding a 26er.
