    It’s been nearly a year since I bought this bike for my son and I (we) couldn’t be happier. In fact, I’d go so far as saying it was the PERFECT bike for him. I called Trailcraft and was able to talk to Brett personally about concerns over my son’s height and wanting him to be able to grow into the bike. Brett was able to accommodate us by suggesting that we purchase the 27.5 Maxwell but instead of funning the 27.5″ wheels, he would build it with 26″ wheels for my son’s height. That way, he could grow into the bike and eventually we could upgrade to the bigger wheels when his height warranted it. This ended up being the perfect situation. A year out from this purchase has seen my son crush an entire season of NICA races, earning 2nd place in the state, and over a dozen trips to Snowshoe Bike Park. The bike does everything well from xc racing to long adventure rides, to park riding. He even uses it at the local jump park. We are getting close to upgrading the fork to something a little bigger and burlier, probably a 140 27.5 Pike, and perhaps even putting those 27.5 wheels on the bike as Jack (my son) has grown a few inches over the past year. I never write reviews, but in this case, I feel so compelled to do so being that I don’t think we could have bought a better bike for my son. In all reality, I see this bike lasting him for another 2-3 years and not holding him back whatsoever. I highly recommend Trailcraft!
