Not to hijack the thread, but if we buy from sportchek and the bikes come unassembled and I assembled it myself, can I still bring it in sportchek to get it tuned for free?

Thanks OP! Will keep an eye on this one as it's OOS now.

Super noob, but looking to get bike just to cruise around during summer and put on a stand indoors for winter. Will this be a good bike for that?

Currently at around 400 + tax you can buy EVO bike with disk breaks
a bit more than that 420+ tax you can buy Schwin from costco with disk breaks
next level up 550+tax you can buy entry level giant

Nothing decent within 200-300 range with aluminum body and disk breaks

Not saying you're wrong or anything, but I wouldn't care much for disc brakes. Sure there's a performance increase in braking, no doubt.
But I don't think most of people will benefit for it for casual rides (which is the intent of those budget bicycles), and the extra maintenance will defo add some costs.

Agree and even though i don't see any decent deals on 200 range for aluminum bikes. Correct me if I am wrong though

I agree. I bought my first disc brake bike a couple of years ago. I find the maintenance of disc brakes far more troublesome compared to V brakes.

Not to mention most, if not all, of these entry level bikes with disc brakes are mechanical, not hydraulic, so you lose most of the benefit of disc brakes anyway.
