Cobalt Bikes FAQs

How do I order a custom bike?


You can order frame packages and complete bikes on our Shop page. For a specific custom build, contact me at mike@cobaltbike.com and we’ll provide you a build sheet.  


How long does it take to get my custom bike built and delivered?


Depending on manufacturer stock levels, it usually takes 3-4 weeks to order your custom components and assemble/ship your bike. Custom paint orders may take longer. 


Is shipping included?


Yes, we ship bikes for free anywhere in the U.S. via BikeFlights


What if I want my local mechanic to assemble my custom bike ?


We can ship unassembled bikes and deduct $100 off your bike price.


Do you offer other colors?


While black matte is the Cobalt Bikes baseline color, we do offer different paint schemes or a customized look for your ride. Contact me for details mike@cobaltbike.com 


Whats the difference between the Warhawk Gravel and the  Marauder CX?


The tire clearance on the Warhawk goes up to a 700-50 (29x1.9) with plenty of space or 650Bx2. MTB tire. The Marauder can take a 700x40 tire with good mud clearance. 


Both are great bikes, but some of your decision depends on what kind of riding you plan to do. If you want a gravel bike that can swing both ways- toward CX if you need it or towards bikepacking, the Warhawk is very versatile. Swap out wheels to 650Bs with 2.1” and you have a drop bar MTB.

The Marauder is a CX bike that can do gravel or you could use it for bikepacking. It's a little quicker/more responsive with a shorter wheelbase (1006 Marauder vs 1025 on Warhawk size 54), shorter chain stays (420 vs. 435 on Warhawk). Seat tube and head tube angles are very close. For a size 54 the Marauder is 73 degrees at the seat stay and 72 degrees up front vs 73 degree and 71.5 degrees on the Warhawk.


If you’re looking for a gravel bike, I’d go Warhawk. If you want to add a CX bike for racing that can do gravel and bikepacking, Marauder is your best bet.
