    I love my costco bought Northrock XC6. It looks good, it rides good and so far, it's holding up fine.

    I do like the points he makes though, other than the one that implies my precious XC6 aint no good.
    He's not saying it isn't any good, but typically the quality/price ratio just isn't great.
    Refer to "ride it 'til it breaks" or better "endure people poking fun at your costco bike, and then crush them on the trails until they shut up".

    Echoing previous, this should be mandatory reading. It can be easy to forget to just have fun.

    Thank you.

    After an epic ride with many 26 haters. The best I read yet. "Ride in serenity, if it takes debating wheels for you and that's how you see epic serenity .....enjoy. Riding is more than a wheel it's a life, live the life on what works for you and remember the wheel is an A-B - nothing more. Great job industry, perfect business model now let's see the 27.5 hype.. already coming take it to the bank. No welcome section but newbie to here and MTB lover!!! nothing personal just a reality ride i had today with some Bob Marley Inspiration!!!!!
