    Re: 2013 Bobcat Trail 29

    I purchased a bobcat trail 17" 29er the other day. Should be here tomorrow. First MTB since I was a kid lol. Couldn't pass up the deal. The bike was $594 shipped. Best part was that I had a new credit card offer which was spend $500 in the first 90 days and get a $225 statement credit. Soooo, the bike ended up costing me about $370 in the end!!! Winner winner chicken dinner!!!! Only concern I have is that I'm 5'7 with a 30" inseam. The girl I spoke with said the 17" frame would be OK for me?! I'm hoping it works out that way. Can't wait to ride. I just sold my jet ski so now I'm stoked to start MTBing.

    Congrats you guys. Those are great bikes for the money. the 17" frame might be a little tight stand over, but it should work.

    So I picked my bike up today from my LBS and I gotta say, I honestly don't think its possible to be any happier with the bike. So far it seems like a solid bike. Rides extremely smooth and very comfortable. Even my step dad took it for a rip and loved it and he owns an $1100 trek!

    2013 Bobcat Trail 29

    That bobcat trail has better stuff than almost any $1100 trek will. The raidon fork is a very good fork for the money and is MUCH better than most non-air forks.

    Remember that the bobcat is a $1000+ bike that is on closeout.

    Trying to de-badge the rims with the factory stickers. I hate stickers!!!! Only problem is they aren't coming off very easy, they keep tearing and leaving adhesive. Think some 3m adhesive remover will be OK to clean them up or maybe some goo-gone?!

    Congrats on the new bike!! I picked one at the end of summer last year. Love it, couldn't be happier. Especially at the price I got it for.
