The best 24" performance to value bike just got even better for the holidays with a special price! We're spreading some holiday cheer with a special limited run of our Pineridge 24 Special Christmas Builds this season! Pineridge 24's typically cost hundreds more, so this is your chance to put a great bike next to the Christmas tree at a once-a-year very special price.
At just 22.3 pounds WITH pedals, it is a VERY exciting time to be a kid moving up to a 24" wheel mountain bike! The 24 inch wheel size is the one where kids learn key life long riding skills which will carry through the rest of their mountain bike riding career. The 2017 Pineridge 24 Special Christmas Build gets our Trailcraft wheelset and also comes stock with an 11-42 cassette so your young rider will spend more time on the saddle rather than pushing uphill.
Compare other bikes in this price range and see why the Pineridge 24 is a such a popular model. Also of note - if your riding terrain has any climbing involved, the 11-42 cassette we spec on all of our bikes, combined with our 140mm crankset and 30t narrow-wide style chainring makes uphill climbs very manageable. When shopping, pay attention to how other bikes are spec'd with an 11-36 and a 32t or larger front chainring. Bottom line is your little rider will walk more with their 11-36 & 32t front ring and climb more with our 11-42 & 30t front ring. To further show how serious we are about this awesome bike and giving you the best performance to value, we spec Schwalbe's Rocket Ron 24x2.1" tires which is undoubtedly the best tire you can put on a bike in this category to keep rotational weight as low as possible.

The secret to the amazing ride quality of this bike is our geometry and very high quality, lightweight components. Each frame is hand built in small batches with double butted 7005 aluminum tubing, forged dropouts, and post-mount disc brake mounts both front and rear. The Pineridge 24 Special Christmas Build comes in at the scant weight of 22.3 pounds - - and at that weight comes stock with an 11-42 cassette, pedals, lock-on grips and even a chainstay protector. This bike features the same great frame as our other Pineridge 24 bikes - including a short 390mm chainstay length. This shorter rear end allows kids to corner faster, change direction quicker, lift the front easier allowing manuals and floating the front end over obstacles much more fun than your typical 420mm chainstay length 24-inch bike.
-All Pineridge 24 Special Christmas Builds get our Trailcraft Cycles 24 wheelset totaling just 1500 grams. Comes pre-taped for tubeless.
-Ashima 85 gram rotors come stock on ALL level builds and have been spec'd to keep wheel rotational weight as low as possible. The super low rotational weight of both wheelsets is very important to young riders just starting out, or more experienced riders trying to get to the next riding level.
- Schwalbe Rocket Ron 24-inch Performance series tires come with this Christmas Build. These tires have a folding bead, come in at a low 450 gram weight, and have great tread which excels in conditions from hard pack to rich loamy high country dirt.
- Stans yellow tape is pre- installed so all you need to do is add sealant if choose to go the tubeless route to shed even more weight. We even ship the bike to you with a set of tubeless valve stems!
RST F1rst air sprung suspension fork. It still is the lightest 24" fork available with high quality alloy lowers, hydraulic lockout and preload adjust to smooth out the choppy terrain for more control while fighting off fatigue. This allows longer rides with your young rider!
