Trailcraft Pineridge 24 Assembly Instructions

Thank you for your purchase of a Trailcraft Pineridge 24! All Trailcraft Cycles are packed in the best quality double-wall corrugated box to protect the bike. For shipping purposes the bike has been minimally disassembled. Full assembly has been completed though cables can stretch so there may need to be some fine tuning with the shifter barrel adjusters upon arrival. Prior to shipping: 1. Your bikes handlebars have been removed and placed back into their original bubble wrapped sleeve for protection. 2. The I-Spec shift/brake combo has been well wrapped in foam packaging material. They will hang along the fork - also wrapped in foam packaging. 3. The stem has been left in the positive rise position on the fork steerer tube, along with the top cap and stem spacers left installed. The stem is turned inwards towards the saddle so it fits in the box. 4. The front wheel has been removed, q/r lever removed and placed in small parts envelope. A long cardboard divider is installed to protect front wheel from hitting the frame. Extra cardboard insets or small empty boxes may be present to take up air volume for additional protection. All of this information is also on our website under the Contact Us tab. Upon arrival of your Trailcraft Pineridge 24

  1. Open box and remove front wheel, and cardboard inserts. Locate envelope with small components in bottom of box (pedals, grips, 3m cable protection tape, tubeless valves.)

  2. Pull bike out of box by holding back of the saddle and fork leg.

  3. Remove front fork dropout protection piece.

  4. Remove all packaging.

  5. Install q/r lever on front wheel, leaving tension springs wide end towards the outside of each side.

  6. Remove brake caliper shipping spacer (orange block) from from the brake. It will pull out with a swift tug. DO NOT SQUEEZE FRONT BRAKE.

  7. Install front wheel into fork.

  8. Rotate stem with face plate facing forward. If your child is on the younger/smaller side, you can also flip the stem in the negative position to get the bars lower and place the spacer(s) on top of the stem. Do not tighten top cap or rear stem bolts yet. One finger tight is OK if needed to keep from rotating.

  9. Remove handlebars from bubble sleeve and feed through stem. Do not tighten stem bolts, again just finger tight if needed.

  10. Install right and left side brake/shift combo. Do not tighten yet!

  11. Remove grips, and artificially line up where grip will go on the bar without actually putting them on the bar. Count 2 centimeters back from end the of grip to mount. Finger tighten brake/shifter mount. Most feel a 30-45 degree angle is best to start out.

  12. Grip installation: Loosen 3mm bolt on each side of grip. Install grip so it is flush with tip of bar and tighten. Install end cap plug.

  13. Tighten top cap steerer tube bolt, no more than two-finger tight.

  14. Tighten all other stem mounted bolts. Now tighten shifter and brake levers two-finger tight.

  15. Adjust saddle height. A great resource is linked here: http://www.bikeradar.com/us/gear/article/how-to-get-your-seat-height-right-14608/

  16. Adjust shock pressure. A factory setting of 75 psi is stock, you may need to adjust +/- depending on your child's weight and riding level.

  17. Adjust tire pressure. Please note all bikes are shipped with tubes already installed for simplicity, though tubeless valves are included as a courtesy if you desire to set up tubeless. Stans fluid is recommended but not included. All wheels are factory installed with yellow rim tape. Instructions for setting your tires up tubeless can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqPMxL0LmX0 Again, make sure all bolts and q/r levers are tight.

  18. Install included 3m tape (suggested) to keep paint free from cable rubbing. You are going to ride your new bike A LOT so we suggest cutting and placing in the areas where rubbing will occur.

  19. Install pedals - flat pedals which are included with 6mm allen wrench or your own clipless style pedals. If installing supplied pedals please note they are stamped left or right on the spindle end.

  20. Make sure your child is wearing a helmet. Safety always first!!

  21. Ride your amazing Trailcraft Pineridge 24 and take your trail riding to the next level!!!
