Thanks OP! Bought the balance bike for kids.

Triangle offers had $5 rewards on $50 spend, plus a separate multiplier on bikes (multiplier depends on offers available for your account).

Not sure what bikes would compare, but for this price I think these are great?

I have the Nakamura Royal 700c Hybrid Bike and it's been great. Plus sport check provided 1 free tune-up within 1 year of purchase.

These are basically equivalent to Canadian tire bikes.
Most CCM and SuperCycles have the same, bottom of the barrel components.
For a casual biker or kid, there's nothing wrong with this.
But for an adult that bikes fairly often, avoid anything Shimano Tourney since it's the worst tier groupset you can buy from them, and what's on all of these and nearly every CT bike.

The used market is a good place. I've found the s/o a Trek 7.4 for $200 which is basically a $1000 bike, Deore components / altus, just needed $50 for a tune up and a few parts for the brakes.

Is good price to get one for kids. Trust me on this one. I am a vivid biker, I bought my 7 yr old a Cannondale kids bike 2 years ago. It was like $400 with tax. The bike itself is good but is just that kids will not take care of the stuff so is better to get entry level inexpensive bikes. Wait until they get older and able to appreciate a good bike before buying a good quality bike for the kids. Alternatively, make them work at Tims or McDs to pay for a decent quality bike!

For casual use these are good. I have a 2016 royal and its still in really good condition. No creaks and no issues. I alternate it with my road bike during the biking season. Not everyone is keen on doing tuneups and even basic components such as these will last the casual riders. First hand experience with them , just saying, no issues.

We all want better components but at the end of the day, if this bracket suits your needs, no need to step up. Bike will last 3-5 years and at this price , who is to complain?

The email sign up knocks the price under $50 though... so do you still get the $5 off $50? Or you bought more stuff to get it over?

Picked up 3 bikes for under $500 all in.

It’s a no brainer at this price. Quality is decent and the bike is assembled and tuned right before you take it.

The labor cost alone would add up.

I bough the 18” bike which was 109$. So all discounts applied. I don’t know about the less expensive ones.

Walmart has these diamondback hardtails I saw in Winnipeg. I believe it was under the $188 banner which surprised me because it was a 1 x drivetrain, matte finish, internal cable routing. All things you don't really see out of box stores until you get into GTs at sportchek which now start at $700ish.

Don't quote me on the price, as I didn't confirm, but as far as budget entry level bikes go from what I saw if I was in the market I'd be looking at Walmart.

I still have my Jamis Trail X1 with a Shimano Tourney TX-55. It has never given me issues.

for my wife and kids that ride casually on weekends, the supercycles are OK and meets their needs. but most probably when my kids gets older he can have my Jamis Trail x3 from 2009 upgraded with SLX groupset and epicon fork.

as for me, ive been using a Norco Storm from 2015. all stock entry level components. havent given me problems all this years except for flats here and there. just recently last year ive started to upgrade the components - 1*10 deore drivetrain, non-series hydro brakes, rigid fork and schwalbe big apples.

In store (where I went), you can't even tell there is a sale. The price tags just look like normal prices.

For a kid around those ages it doesn't matter that it's not a Trek or a Cannondale or whatever fancy brand. They will outgrow it fast and they will damage it, crashe it, you name it. I bought mine on sale a few years ago and sold it a couple years later for the same price at the beginning of the riding season. I actually made five bucks on the sale plus my kid rode it for 2 years.
