    Diamondback at Costco

    I recently purchased a Diamondback at Sports Authority and saw they were on Costco.com - what's the deal? Is Diamondback not a good bike anymore? Are they being sold at Walmart too? I wanted to ride a bike not from the big box. I'm trying to return back to Sports Authority - any suggestions on what to do?

    Most people would consider Sports Authority to be a big box store. What's your budget? What type of riding do you do?

    Seems as if I can get a better deal at a bike shop. Not liking the idea of spending a few hundred dollars and seeing my bike in Walmart or Costco.

    Why did you make more than one thread? Who cares where the bike is sold?

    Did the OP ever post the actual model he got in any of the threads?

    As others noted in response to his other thread, Diamondback makes several bikes for different price points and outlets.

    You might not necessarily get a bike with the same level of components for the same price at a lbs. In other words you might have gotten more with your money with the Diamondback.

    Although when I was shopping for bikes, it was hard to believe how much more Sports Authority was charging for the same bikes sold elsewhere. (compared to REI and Performance) They did have pretty good clearance prices online a couple of months ago, but I missed out on it and was why I was searching their stores hoping that they'd still have some in stock at the same price.
