Another look at Northrock Bicycles

If you recall, we’ve talked about Northrock Bicycles before. In fact I was surprised that our server stats show that the keyword “Northrock Bicycles” gets the most amount of hits. So I figured I’d revisit the subject and provide you guys some better photos. Well for one let’s get one thing straight, I’ve called and called, sent emails and left messages for Northrock Bicycles to call me back to see if we can get a demo unit to test out. But they never got back to me each time I’d reach out. So going to Costco was the next best thing. Mind you this isn’t a formal review, it’s more of a snap shot.

It’s basically an entry level mountain bike.

One thing that sucks about Costco, the assembly team that puts these bikes together don’t really pay attention to the details. Just look how overly rotated the handle bar is.

Price point is pretty hard to resist, $349

When you go to Costco, they’ll usually have one or two assembled, but for the most part, they come in boxes and you’ll have to put it together yourself. These bikes are 95% assembled. All you really need to do is put the front wheel on and the handle bars.

So there you have it. The Northrock XC6, like I said, it’s not much of a review since we didn’t get a chance to put it through the paces. Perhaps if Northrock ever got wind of this article, they’ll let us try one out.

  1. I got this bike recently when they REALLY marked them down (below $200). So far – great bike. I had to assemble it when I got home but most of it was already pre-built. Rides great, shifts smooth. Nice bike.
