Good bike for $280. Comparison to other cheap fatbike, the Northrock XC00 at Costco that is currently $499 online and $399 in the store (if you can find one):

Mongoose Dolomite (manufactured by Pacific Cycles):
- Steel 17" Frame. Standard (symmetrical) 190mm rear and 135mm fork spacing. Straight (34mm ID) head tube with an external cup headset for a 1 and 1/8" straight steerer fork.
- The bike weighs ~45 pounds.
- 1x7 gearing with a Shimano Tourney or Microshift 7 speed derailleur. Twist Shifter. The freewheel is a 14-28t.
- 100mm wide 36 hole alloy wheels with open bearings, and bolted on axles. Chaoyang/Arisun 4" tires.
- Offbrand mechanical disk brakes that don't feel the best, but are somewhat ok if properly adjusted.

Northrock XC00 (Manufactured by Giant) (https://www.costco.com/northrock-...67336.html) :
- Alloy 17" Frame. Non-standard 170mm asymmetrical (15mm driveside offset) rear and 121mm fork spacing. Tapered head tube with an integrated headset for a 1 and 1/8" straight steerer fork (it actually comes with a straight steerer fork).
- The bike weighs ~35 pounds.
- 1x7 gearing with a Shimano Altus rear derailleur. Trigger shifter. The freewheel is a 14-28t.
- 57mm wide 32 hole alloy wheels with open bearings, and quick release axles. Kenda Gigas 4" tires.
- Tektro mechanical disk brakes that will feel better than the offbrand ones on the Mongoose.

Out of the box it would seem that the Northrock is slightly better specced, as well as having a more modern and lighter frame. The controls on it will feel better, and the brakes are slightly better. However, the Mongoose functions better as an actual fat bike. It has much wider rims, and tires with a more aggressive tread that are better suited for trail/sand/snow. The tires on the Mongoose, while being the same width as the Northrock, will actually measure out closer to the full 4" due to being installed on wider rims.

When it comes to upgrading (if one wants to embark on such an endeavor on these bikes), the Mongoose is slightly more upgrade friendly due to having standard frame and fork spacing - making it much easier to upgrade the wheels. However the Northrock can theoretically take a tapered fork, but that will require a new front wheel (due to the non-standard stock fork axle spacing and hub), as well as a new headset.
Not sure why people are downvoting this. The Dolomite's have been insanely priced since Covid started. People were selling these for $500-$600 and more local and on Ebay. This is a good price in the last 2 years for this bike.
Honestly thank you so much for posting this, I wanted something for exercise, and always wanted a fat bike, I remember seeing them $199 3 years ago, I bit the bullet and purchased one for $399 and fell in love. I've upgraded the pedals and seat, doing a Caset and other upgrades. Long story short I'm ordering one for my wife and brother. Thanks again.

So what you're saying is, it's a good deal because of inflation?
I'm not sure what it is, just that bikes in general have gone up in price. But these fat bikes have gone way way up. I think this sale price is what they were prior to Covid. I mean they use to be like $180 back in 2015 so I guess the price has gone up with inflation.

Quote from jeffricks2051 :
edit: oh this is a mountain bike duh. Same dynamics exist though. Good for mosing around hills I guess. Still looks like a slugish dog to me.

Giant fat tires with lots of weight on the outer rim takes a lot more effort to speed away from a complete stop. If you are just kicking it around and don't care about effort and covering distance i guess its ok. If you want to cover a longer distance that has a lot of stops and starts this bike would be a slugish dog for that.


ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO DO WHEN BUYING A BIKE is to take the time to look at the companies height charge and get the bike that is proper for your height. AlMoST No one does that!

Hold out for a bike that is for your proper height.
Sluggish it right. It does float, though!

May as well ask here.

Anyone got some good recommendations on cheapish flat bar road/hybrid bikes?

Looking for an easy commuter.

Yes, it's a good deal because of inflation. 2015 prices (or even 2019) are never coming back, so time to move on...

Looking for an easy commuter.
(If you buy the right size for yourself) This one is a cheap masterpiece. Don't buy it now. It's at the hightest price I've ever seen it. $599. years ago it would be $399-499 regular and dip significantly when on sale. Most commonly for $300 area, which is a steal. Once it dipped to $200 and once it dipped to $250. I don't think that will ever happen again. I scored and bought 2 for $200 and one for $250. I always have a working bike because I always have spare parts that fit perfectly with no down time buying parts and paying shipping. One bike is half stripped now. Bonus: the stripped one has a perfect brand new frame so at some point I'm going to switch out frames and nave a new looking bike again.

I've put an obscene number of miles and destinations on these bikes. Since they are 'regular' bikes instead of expensive ones, I can park it anywhere with a u-lock and never gets stolen, cause they are looking to steal a better bike if goign to deal with a u-lock. Get a u-lock that's 31-33 mm thick. Just enough to be a pain in the ass to cut, but not too large to get annoyingly heavy.

https://www.dickssportinggoods.co...m=manitoba


Never got my bike stolen over 5 years using this lock. It's thick enough, it's long at 9.5" so you can lock many more places easily, its a combo lock so can't lose key or have to search for it. IMO combo locks are good if it's a cheap bike because anyone who is skilled inough to pick a combo is going to steal a higher priced bike. The security is in the bike not being worth much monitarily. Most theives just hop on your bike as soon as you leave them unattended thinking' I'll be 20 seconds, safe, because short window' wrong. They time it so you are thinking when walk away and jump on bike that moment. Or the just go around steal more expensive bikes with a bolt cutter or such.

Dude, it doesn't mean it's the right size. If it happens to be your size perfect.

If you DGF and want to kick it around beach or slogging around town, then it's fine for you.

I'm telling you, half the joy you get from a bike is when you ride one that is the right size. If you get one the right size you will always be riding a bike that is the right size. It's not as profound as it sounds. And the joy you get from riding a bike the right size is forever, because the bike is always the same correct size. If you want more info about bikes you should ask me if it's important to have the correct sized bike.

It's a great price for a bike if it happens to be your size, and wnat to kick around with it, and not cover many miles. It's not a good commuter bike. Great if you live by beach.

Im really in to doing long miles with a hybrid. I go down town 10 miles away for kicks. A road bike would be even easier to cover miles but would get stolen and I find the hybrid funner to ride anyway. Getting the right size for a commuter or road bike bike is absolutely critical, IMO. Iwoudn't get any kind of bike that wasn't my size.

Needing to replace half the parts on a bike doesn't sound like much of a recommendation.

Neither does the need to buy two bikes so you can have spare parts on hand.
