Cobb Mobb Members and their Bikes

In triathlon, you will likely spend more time on your bike than any other facet of the race - which is one reason why the bike is so important.  "Comfort equals speed" is something that doesn't only apply to the fit and saddle of your cycling machine - but also to how well you can handle it, maneuver it, etc.

The Cobb Mobb members' bikes will range from the latest and greatest high tech aerodynamic machines to the "old school" and vintage - but one thing is in common throughout:  Comfort equals speed!

Check out some of their bikes below!

Joanna Gifford is slightly straying from the "Comfort Equals Speed" motto - as that position certainly doesn't look comfortable for riding!  
Cobb Mobb pro Robbie Wade leads us off with his Quintana Roo Illicito, complete with Hawk Racing race wheels and 3T Ventus aerobars.  Robbie is racing a Cobb SHC saddle. 

Michael Dreesen uses a Specialized Tarmac with cip-on Profile design aerobars and a Renn 575 disc wheel. 
Here's Steve Ford with his Cannondale Multisport 4000 with a JOF Randee' saddle.  Steve is using the ultra sleek Profile Ozero basebar which mounts nicely to his front hydration system(Profile Design HC).  Great cable routing and some matching tires (on 650c wheels!) round out a great looking vintage machine!

Les Carr is here with his Cervelo P3 - complete with Zipp 808 Firecrest and Super 9 Disc wheelset - as well as a Cobb Gen 2 saddle!

Sharon Deane is rocking a JOF 55 on her blacked out Trek Speed Concept 9.9 with Dura Ace 9000 di2.  She's using a Speedfil Z4 front hydration system and is rolling on Zipp 404 wheels.

Cobb Mobb team manager Dana Rucker in some beautiful scenery with his Litespeed Pavia sporting a Cobb Randee' saddle!

Chris Morelock has quite the decked out Cervelo P3 Aluminum - with a Cobb SHC saddle and Cobb 160mm cranks.  Chris has put a massive amount of attention to aerodynamics on this bike, with creative cable routing using Alligator i-link cables, a slammed original 3T Ventus aerobar setup, TriRig brake calipers, and a custom steel MDT fork.  He's running a HED Jet 90 front and a Renn 575 rear disc.  Hydration storage is accomplished with a Torhans Aero 30 which touches out a very clean, very aerodynamic and very well thought out piece of machinery.  

Jeff Lam is here with his Specialized Shiv TT with white JOF 55 saddle.  A pair of Zipp 404s and a pair of Crocs nicely round out the set-up.  

Crystal Self is seen here with her Felt DA and white Cobb Plus saddle.  A pink Fuel Belt aero storage bento nicely compliments the accents on her bike.

Carlos Torres is seen here with his Scott Plasma - complete with Zipp disc and front, Enve aerobar set-up, Cobb 160mm cranks, and Cobb JOF 55 saddle. 

Jared Fayer was kind enough to stop pedaling for a moment to take this shot of him aboard his Felt DA.

Here's Jeff Lam with his Shiv TT again.  He has a unique way of hanging his bikes! 
Ginger Turner Spansel is rocking the Cobb VFlow on her Felt B2R with Zipp 404s.

Les Car is seen here racking his Cervelo P3 with Cobb JOF 55 and Zipp disc.

Monty Geddie is seen here with a very nice Specialized Shiv TT set-up - including Zipp 808 wheels and a Cobb Gen 2 saddle with  the Cobb rear hydration mount.

Greg Mccullough is shown here with his very nice Fuji D6 and Cobb SHC saddle.  A 54 tooth SRAM aero chainring and debadged HED Jet 90s round out the package.

Nick Nagel here is shown here with his most prized possession.....and his bike, too.  His machine is an Argon 18 E-112 built up with Reynolds Assault/Strike wheelset with a Cobb JOF 55 with custom rear baby bottle holder in the back.
