I am coming down on a GF Cobia 29r for my 20yr upgrade from a ridgid Spec.Rockhopper (1988!!).
Price and service from a LBS plus the reviews here are selling on this model. Being a noob, the only thing suggested by LBS mechanic was looking at some different bars with some rise as the Cobia comes with flat bars. He mentioned rider comfort and better handling as the prime reason. I'm all for comfort at 6'00"/195 on this 19" frame. Can somebody recommend some good bars? The reviews here show lots of good ones but rise/cm/inches/weight is frying my noob brain!!
