New! 2018 Costco Northrock XC00 Fat Tire Bicycle! $299! – VS 2017 Version

Hey guys! Just saw this at lunch at Costco.  I bought my NorthRock XC00 last year for $299 and it was awesome light weight Aluminium Fat Tire bike. Amazon has a similar selection but is pricer:  https://amzn.to/2J6gYYA

The main differences is the color (Gray Orange), cable runs (JagWire Cables – https://amzn.to/2JWrumv ) and a new headset stem that seems difference from the 2017 version (https://wp.me/p9dbox-bJ) .  Same weight and other components all around.

(1 Year Review)COSTCO! SUNFORCE Triple Head Solar Motion Activated Light – REVIEW 3

So its been about 1 year since I unboxed and installed the Costco SUNFORCE Triple Head Solar Motion Activated Light. Its has LED lights and runs on 3 AA NiMh batteries and solar.  It was installed  They have different versions on Amazon:  http://amzn.to/2EMFY8N  . It was installed under the eve of the roof so it was out of the direct sun light for about a third of the day.  The solar panel was installed on the roof of the house. and the hole was sealed by silicone and roof tar.   The batteries last for about 30 minutes so i had it set on test mode so it would just signal me when someone was in our yard.  It still works and i like its simplicity.

In my previous review i was planning to upgrade the batteries ( https://wp.me/p9dbox-eG ) but the originals has now failed yet. I havent put Eneloop Rechargable Batteries in to it yet but will do a follow up review of the batteries in another 6 months: http://amzn.to/2FdJYwM

$2 Lunch in 5 Minutes! Chicken Cilantro Wonton Spinach Ramen!!!

Here is a quick $2 lunch idea using only stuff i bought at Costco! Bibigo Chicken Cilantro Wonton ($6-9 for 3 lbs or about 60-70 cents ), Fresh Spinach ($4 for 3 lb – 15 cents ), and Ramen ($5 for 36 or 13 cents) .   Take a look at the simple how to video! I tried the BibiGO fully cooked chicken and cilantro mini wontons! It was about $6 with Costco coupon, normally its $9 for the 3 pound bag.  Amazon sells Bibigo sauses and stews online https://amzn.to/2Js4489 but not these wontons.

Costco! Bibigo Mini Wontons! 3lb for $9 (or $6 with coupon)!!!

I tried the BibiGO fully cooked chicken and cilantro mini wontons! It was about $6 with Costco coupon, normally its $9 for the 3 pound bag.  Overall it tastes good but really “mini” compared to like a bag of Ling Ling Dumplings which also costs about $10, but needs to be cooked longer.  Its better to add these to a broth or ramen, which is what i did in the next video.

I reviewed other bibigo costco steamed dumplings before:

Costco! Ice Cream Bars (18pk- $10) and Nestle Drumsticks (16pk-$10)!!!

Pretty cool deal for ice cream bars at Costco!  I just saw these today and never noticed them before!  I normally just buy Nestle Drumsticks or wait for the Haagen Dazs to go on sale with a coupon.   Amazon sometimes has Haagen Dazs Ice Cream   https://amzn.to/2H16axo  and Nestle Drumsticks:  https://amzn.to/2EtjQMn .

Sweet Rebate DEAL!  Mobil 1 has a $17 (oil and filter) and $12 (oil only) off rebate on their Mobil-1 Full Synthetic 5 Quart Jug of motor oil.  If you already buy full synthetic filters at about $9 and oil at about $22, this could be an awesome deal to essentially get it for $17 off, if you are willing to wait 6-8 weeks for a rebate!

Mobil 1 Rebate Website for May 2018:  https://apfco.com/secure/R9721W  You should probably read the fine print as it seems to only be available to certain retail stores.

Otherwise, Amazon has other full synthetic motor oils:  https://amzn.to/2IC0Opk .

Which Full Synthetic 0w-20 Motor Oil? ($15 – $38) SO MANY BRANDS!

There are so many 0w-20 motor oils on the market with smaller hybrid and turbo engines. I like that there are more competition from different brands. For me I am not brand specific. For my Honda Civic Hybrid, i was buying Mobil 1 0w-20 because it needed it and the only brand available was Mobil 1.  I remember paying $30- $35 for 5 quarts.  10 years later, Pennzoil, Valvoline, Castrol, and even Walmart SuperTech has a Full synthetic 0w-20 motor oil selling for about $15 – $38 dollars!  You can even buy it online https://amzn.to/2IC0Opk .    What oil do you use, and have you used the other FULL SYNTHETIC brands or do you still use Conventional motor oil?
