Our goal is to build the best 24-inch high performance cross country mountain bike on the market.
The Trailcraft Pineridge 24 was conceived after looking for a quality lightweight bike for our 7-year-old son. We purchased a “high-end” lightweight 24-inch wheel bike, though it weighed over 27 pounds in stock form with 420mm length chain stays. Our son, 8-years-old at the time, and about 50 pounds was riding a bike that was literally more than half his body weight with a wheelbase longer than many 26-inch wheel bikes with larger wheels.
Due to a lack of high performance 24-inch frames, rims, and other parts to make our son's bike lighter, the last 2 years has been spent prototyping, testing, and dialing in the best 24-inch cross country mountain bike currently available.
The secret to the perfect ride quality of the Trailcraft Pineridge 24 is the unique frame geometry, and high quality lightweight components. Each frame is hand built in small batches with double butted 7005 aluminum tubing and lightweight forged dropouts. A short chain stay length of 390mm allows for more confident cornering, quicker directional changes, and better climbing traction. A shorter rear end also makes learning wheelies, manuals, and lifting the front end over obstacles much more fun.
One of the most valuable benefits of the Pineridge 24 are the memories made together on the bike as a family. The awesome ride quality and lightweight components of the Pineridge 24 has allowed for longer more enjoyable rides, creating fun times on the trail together, and a lifetime of memories. This time and connection together is priceless. We know the Trailcraft Pineridge 24 will allow you to ride longer, climb higher, and enjoy harder trails together.
