We've created the ultimate trail shredding machine with our new Maxwell 26 and it's $150.00 off this month only just in time for Spring!  Dominate the trails going both down and up with this amazing bike - the name Maxwell comes from Maxwell trail in Fort Collins, Colorado where we love to ride.  It’s a super technical, steep and rocky trail but the reward down is so nice.  It can be done on a hardtail, but it is so much more fun on a full suspension bike!  If your local riding area requires climbing for the really good stuff going back down, then the Maxwell 26 is your next bike.

Our new Maxwell 26 Special Build comes in at 26 pounds with best in category components.  Attention to detail with top shelf level components include Stans Crest MK3 wheels, 96 gram ultralight rotors, an extended range 11-46 cassette and 152 mm direct-mount cranks with aluminum spindle typically found on much more expensive bikes.  We’ve built the best bike with the best components so your kids can spend more time riding and less time pushing a 30+ pound bike uphill.

Some may call it a "quiver killer" but we just think it's the perfect bike for all for all types of mountain bike riding.  The Maxwell 26 is built for next level riding with some key geometry features designed specifically for riders of young and old!   The Maxwell 26 features a Horst link suspension design which is active under braking and very plush over both small bumps and bigger hits.  Short yet stable 420mm chainstay length and a 1082mm wheelbase is the perfect 26" trail bike for riders coming off a 24" bike.

Want to go a bit more custom or full custom on this build?  Contact us!  We are a small family business focused on building the best kids mountain bikes possible.  We truly geek out on this stuff, just see our Instagram page for some of what we are doing as well as our custom builds page.  We bring our frames in from Taiwan (un-assembled/not built) and we build each bike per order in Fort Collins, Colorado with US labor.  Since we don't import "complete bike in box from Asia" like pretty much everyone else does, we maintain a high quality control from installation of headset, bottom bracket, and even putting the derailleur hanger on frames here in the US.  You can be proud to tell your kids they have a unique bike which was truly built to order from the frame up!

Fits riders with a 26.5” standover height, or about 4'7”-5’2”
