[Costco] Costco.ca - 26" Mountain Bike $149.97 - OOS

First post - let me know if I've missed anything...

Noticed this bike at what looks like a clearance price at costco.ca for $149.97. Two frame sizes, although I'm not sure how well their suggested heights match up with the frame sizes listed. (My wife has an 18" frame on her existing bike that fits her well, but they suggest a 16" for her height)

I know this isn't a high end bike, but it looks like decent components for a casual rider who doesn't want to spend a ton of coin. I picked up a different model Infinity bike last year from Costco.ca for my 15 year old son, and it is of good build quality, and I was happy paying $300 for it last year.

16" or 18" is the length between the crank and the lowest seat height - that the frame measurement.

26" wheel is full adult size bike. 16" or 18" wheel would be kids bike.

Rider height for this bike ranges from 5'5" to 6'1", depending in what frame you choose.

This reply is in response to a post that stated this was a kids bike...

For an aluminum bike this is a good deal. I'm 6'2" so I might be slightly too tall, but whatever.

Sounds like a good deal. Assume 5'7" wife would need small 16" model?

Only frame of reference I can give you is this - my wife is 5'7", and her current bike is an 18" frame, but the seat isn't at it's lowest height.

You can always hit a brick and mortar store and test a few frames out...

I ordered 18" frame for my 5'7" wife as that is her current bike's frame size.

I remember Costco bikes were $250+ last year. So $150 for an adult bike is a good price. The components are much better than the cheaper bikes at Walmart -- you are now getting Alloy wheel and brakes, plus you are getting Shimano components. Free shipping. I wonder if it's even cheaper in-store.

I looked for a comparable low end bike from their online selection in store for a month or so last year and didn't see much. Most in store bikes I found were $300+, and I think I hit every Costco in the western end of GTHA.

Plus I actually prefer to build it myself. I built bikes in retail stores for many years, and the skill level was all over the place.

I've never built a bike before.....am I better off taking it to a retail store or is it a fairly straightforward process?

The basics are simple - seat, handlebars, pedals, front tire. The difficult part is adjusting gears and brakes, and then readjusting then after a few weeks of riding as the cables stretch out.
