Kind of a newbie but would you guys recommend the GT Aggressor $400 over the XC29. Or any other bike at sportchek under $700 (trying to take advantage of their monthly payments). I don't mind hybrids as well. I'm 5 11 and on the big side.

Thank you :)
I had a look at the GT Aggressor a couple weeks back. I liked the look (bright orange colour) and the 1 year service included. On sale was $16 more than regular priced XC29... but sale ended that day. Regular price was considerably over $500. The Aggressor had 26" wheels.
What turned me off was the derailer system was Shimano Tourney (lowest quality) and JAP (or similar) brakes system. I could not find much info on that brakes system on the internet.
The XC29 and XC27 both use a (next) higher shifter components and Tektro brakes system (easy to find reviews). Frames are made by Giant.

I just bought the XC29 this past weekend. My Costco (Ancaster) has sold out of them twice this spring already at $399.99 and I figured I needed to move on one or miss out.

The SR1 (SCR1 on the receipt and sign?) is on clearance for $299.97 at Costco in Halifax tonight. There were 2 on the floor, I was in a hurry so I bought one. I'm thinking it might not fit me now though since I'm only 5'-5".

Smaller frame and tires on the XCW. I'm 170cm and bought both bikes this year. Both feel great for my size, but I much prefer the 27.5" tires on the CTM.

Wow, great deal! But yeah, I don't think it'll fit.

I am at Sherbrook Costco. They are selling SR1 at $399.97.
Getting two out of four. Anyone from Ottawa need one? I can get one for you in exchange of some gas! I am heading back to Ottawa shortly!
I need one. Still available?

I am a noob, I recently bought CTM and CL5 for $350 and $300 from costco.ca online.

CTM fits well for my son (174cm), I feel it's bit small for me (180cm) but OK.
It was quite easy to assemble. (I had to carefully position the front wheel and brake.)
No problem so far.

CL5 is bigger and heavier than I thought. Seat position is higher than CTM (because of suspension), so it's a bit high for my wife (162cm) but she can touch the ground and also OK.
But there were few issues on pre-assembled derailleur.
Couldn't shift 1 to 2 on front derailleur. Metallic noise on 3rd front gear (largest).
Rear derailleur stopped working after 30 min ride.

In my case the the cable was too loose and front derailleur was poorly adjusted.
I had to spend 1 hour for studying bike mechanism and finally I was able to fix it.

I am satisfied with both bikes and now I am waiting SCR1 to be on sale. :)

Are you a bike mechanic? Is the person buying it a bike mechanic?

If not, don't tell people to assemble bikes themselves. Otherwise you will come back and pay me $100/hour to unassemble and reassemble your crap job.

I did this for a living full time, 40 hours a week for almost a decade. Worked in the highest in road shop there is in this country. Most real bike mechanics can't even assemble this shit to a A+ standard.

Not to mention the state it comes out of the box is generally completely garbage. We pretty much tore down and reassembled all bikes from the box completely to get a professional build.
Jesus Christ, I don't mean to demean your line of work but you need a reality check bud! The hubris you're displaying would think you're a surgeon. And I've interacted many surgeons and they're not nearly a pompous ass like you.

Students sometimes do your line of work when they're off school in the summertime. Take your head out of your ass.

The fact is that the two kids Northrocks I received yesterday needed tuning (especially for the front brakes), and despite my best efforts, they may need some tuning still.

I don't want to insult any bike mechanic, but I'm pretty sure I can fine tune the bikes myself. Anyone has a link to a good YouTube video that could help me out?
