Spotted at Costco: this Northrock Bikes XC29 Mountain Bike. This peaked our interest since we do a lot of mountain biking.
Besides looking stylish, this is a 29-er bike. The wheels are 29 inch in diameter, versus the more common 26 inch. These wheels roll better over obstacles, and keep their momentum better once they get rolling.
It’s a 24 speed bike with front suspension.
The brakes are Avid BB5’s, the low end of their mechanical disk brake line. These should be adequate for casual riding, but not for really heavy duty trail riding or downhill riding.
The WTB Wolverine tires should be fine in all except wet and slippery trail conditions.
The Northrock Bikes XC29 Mountain Bike is priced at $499.99, which is a good value for a casual-use mountain bike.
Item number is 910020.
Inventory and pricing at your store may/will vary.
