If you're going to tune your bike regularly from a pro, consider buying it at a shop like Sportinglife where they include 3 yrs of tuning with the purchase price. If done once a year, that is worth about $150 to $240. So for a total cost of ownership of about $750, you can also consider getting a bike from a more specialized store.

I had originally picked up the X29 but returned it and ended up at Sportinglife.

If anyone gets an XC29 and feels it's too big, I have a brand new in box XC27 that I'd trade. Located in KW area.

I bought an XC27 but returned it. I felt I was a little too tall for it.

Bikes are such a fleeting thing at our local warehouse that I bought first and asked questions later. Unfortunately they're also such a fleeting thing that I think my odds of of an XC29 were slim to none. So I wound up paying a few hundred more for a decent bike at a local shop.

It's a nice upgrade from my previous bike but it felt like a very un-RFD purchase ;)

He obviously means as an alternative to cycling. So, where and when bikes can go.

E bikes will get people on bikes during biking season.

I have a brand new x29 with tags still on.

I will most likely be returning it. It is a little big for me.

I’ll double check tonight/tomorrow to be sure.

If I am returning I’ll let you know and you can have it for cost.

Ooops. See you got one. Sorry. But I’ll post anyway for those that are still frantically looking.

Picked up an XC29 from the Edmonton South Store. There were about 15 XC29's left in stock as of 11:00am today.
No XC27's, no infinity bikes.

Yes. Mine is unused and still in the box. I managed to order 2 a couple months ago for my wife and myself, assembled one to mess around with and the other is in the box in my garage. If you'd be interested in meeting part way are you up for a trade?

Just getting home from work, I will let you know in the morning about the X29. I suppose we could possibly do a trade and just figure out the difference financially between the two bikes.

Outside the context but not sure where to post this question.
On XC27 bike, what is the ideal Front & Rear Gear number to ride on regular street/roads?

which one is better? Infinity or Northrock XC27?

Do you mind elaborating further as to why NR XC27 is better? Reason I am asking is, i bought XC27 for much higher price $499+ & now debating whether to return & settle for a much lesser price but of course don't mind spending if it is better.
FYI, i bought this only for leisure biking not into trekking or tedious activities. of course comfort & quality is must.

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that Costco has informed me the Northrock SR1 roadbike will not be available this year.

Does anyone know of bike shops in the GTA that offer bike assembly? And how much would it cost?
Wondering if I should assemble the Costco bike myself or have a pro do it instead.
I know SportChek and Sporting Life have Tune up services, but how about asembly out of the box?

I bought a bike from SportChek recently.
Their bikes require minimum assembly work, and they dont even have proper tools. They only have to put on the wheels, everything else is already on the frame and adjusted properly in factory.

It's extremely easy and you might just learn some basic things that could be useful to troubleshoot down the road so you get familiar with things.

I bought the XC00 from Costco and put it together within 10min. Literally the handle bar + wheels + tighten. Everything should be already tuned.
