Great entry level bike

Model/Year: Mamba-2013 model

Pros: Bike has been ridin 280 miles in the first 3-1/2 months. i have not had any unusually problems so far. I have upgraded to a better rear de-railer, but all products are money well spent. i got mine for 930 plus tax.

Cons: grips are a little lame, and the tires are not the best, but will obviously be upgraded here soon enough.

Recommendation: if you are looking for a solid bike in the 800-1100 range, the Mamba is the bike. Pretty decent fork, brakes are solid, good deal.

Model/Year: 2013 Trek Mamba

Pros: Great components for the price
Excellent feel for a 29er
Easily serviced by almost any LBS
Backed by Trek's warranty

Cons: Could come with better grips
Pedals are plastic bricks

Recommendation: In this price range this is a pretty hard bike to beat. After testing similar bikes in the price range this one simply felt like the right bike for me. Couldn't be happier with my purchase.
