I'm just getting into mountain biking and am going to swing by my LBS to try some out. I'm planning on trying the GF Cobia. What else would be good to try?
In order of importance I'm looking for a bike that is:
1. Good on trails (this is where I'll use and enjoy it the most)
2. Good at climbing/descending (there are a lot hills in my area)
3. Decent on the road (I'll use it some on the roads and occasionally to commute to work)
