[Costco] Northrock Road Bike SCR1 $570

Costco has brought back a road bike into their selection for this year.
http://www.northrockbikes.com/road-scr1.php

Never heard of them but it's not a bad price for a starter bike with an aluminum frame and CF forks.

There were two of them left at the Willingdon, Burnaby location.

Shimano Sora is on the lower end for derailleur etc, but for the price I'm also curious about this bike.

If I didn't have a road bike already, I'd get it. Wonder if one size would really fit people in such a large height range though.

How many gears in the back?

Edit: Sora is 9 speed in the back.

Doesn't look too bad. Nice to have Sora for that price, Even a Claris equipped bike would normally be be more money. Have to make sure of sizing. You can get cheaper in the used market but you have to know what you are doing and be able to do the work yourself. Bike store servicing eats up any savings quick.

I saw a bunch of people buying this bike the other day in Costco. The specs are actually quite respectable for an entry level road bike. A similar bike with a brand name would be double easily, for what would probably only be slightly better finishing and wheelset

I can't find any specs on the wheel set, so I'd guess this is the one weakness of this bike. They may be OK, I don't know. From my experience, decent hubs make a huge difference. It also depends on what you are used to riding. If you are coming from a Supercycle, this bike will probably feel like you are riding a fighter jet.

Other than the unknown wheel set, if you are interested in a road bike this one appears decent, the other components are good, and it's a good price.

Wait...What? You mean they only have ONE frame size??? That's just so wrong. I retract my earlier comment about this being a good bike at a good price. It's a good bike only for SOME people. This is gonna suck big time if you are in the upper "recommended height range". Look elsewhere.

Can anyone comment on the Costco.ca men's hybrid and mountain bikes for a newbie/intermediate? I'm specifically looking for something with suspension and LIGHT. The problem is that many of the descriptions are missing the weight...

I see a weight variation of between 29lb-38lb for bikes...

Based on experience, do bikes go on sale at Costco? I'm looking to buy https://m.costco.ca/Northrock-CTM-Cross ... 28363.html but I don't want to purchase at full price.
I bought one two weeks ago. It's actually good price. Similar ones can cost easily 500+ elsewhere.
It's not fully tuned up. You can follow youtube videos if you want to DIY.

Costco bikes typically do go on sale but typically near the end of the season. Also, the bikes that go on sale in recent history were the Infinity bikes which weren't the best IMO. If this bike is a good, stock might be gone before they go on sale.

This is very true. the bikes do not go on 'sale' but will be discounted in early summer as they clear space for inventory for the Fall. Bikes in high demand (or low inventory) are usually sold out before that point.
