The Big Mesa 26+ is ready to tackle the toughest technical terrain at the lowest price of 2019 -$400 off!

Fun! Control! Agility! Flick-ability! Lightweight! All in an amazing new 26+ machine from Trailcraft Cycles!

Dominate the trails in just about every type of riding condition you can find with our new Big Mesa 26 Plus mountain bike.  Way too many advantages if you are a new rider to the sport, or maybe you are more advanced and want to dominate the sickest lines on your roughest trails with a PLUS sized hardtail.

Available in two sizes: XS size (riders 4’9-5’2”) or S size (riders 5’1”-5’6”).

We’ve taken an old-school wheel size and plumped up the tires a bit – but not too much – giving it a “new-school 26-Plus geometry treatment designed for riders of a shorter stature wanting the ultimate fun play bike with big tires and a low weight right out of the box.  Nothing more to modify to make it lighter.  We built the best plus bike with the best components for you so you can spend more time riding.

Our new Big Mesa 26+ comes in at just 26 pounds (with pedals!) in a “26x2.8" plus size tire” level package. Most other brands traditional 26" or 27.5" size skinny tire hardtail bikes are heavier than this awesome machine with massive 2.8" tires!

A Rock Shox Judy 120mm suspension fork, Trailcraft 26+ wheels, 96 gram ultralight rotors, an extended range 11-42 cassette and direct-mount cranks with aluminum spindle typically found on much more expensive bikes rounds out the parts spec.  Our end goal is to build the lightest production 26+ mountain bike with category leading components at a high performance to value.

This is a fun, playful, and super stable bike for all types of riding.  The Big Mesa 26+ is built for the natural progression and next level of riding with some key geometry features designed specifically for riders of young and old!   The Big Mesa 26+ gets the Trailcraft Cycles "New School 26+Geometry Treatment" with a slightly steeper seat tube angle for amazing climbing and a short 425mm chainstay length in a package designed as the ultimate play bike.

The Big Mesa comes standard with a 26+ wheelset, or you can add a 27.5 wheelset later if you want to switch up the fun down the road if your mood changes.
