So I definitely already ordered a Guardian and I am definitely excited but a 2012 trek cobia just popped up on craigslist in awesome shape for the same price as a new guardian. I'm wondering if I should cancel and get it instead. On the surface it doesn't look like theres much difference between the 2, but I'm wondering if theres something I'm missing by being a noob and all that would make it worth doing so.
Heres a link to both to see specs: (actually nvm i'm too new here to post links )
differences seem to be: (cobia vs guardian format)
sram x5 10speed vs 9speed
RockShox Recon Silver TK 29 100m (cobia) vs RockShox XC28 TK Mg29 guardian
Deore front derailleur cobia vs sram x3 guardian
tektro auriga hydraulic brakes vs hayes comp hydraulic
