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. 24" wheels are also the size which your kid is on the longest - three full years (in most cases) if they are coming on the bike in the 4'1" rider height. Take your kids riding to the next level into the 2019 season and beyond on a professional level bike with premium top shelf level components that YOU get to select with your parents which suits your budget and riding terrain the best.
We spec the absolute best components on the Pineridge 24, and with component technology improving we are able to drop even more weight from our bike. The 2019 Pineridge 24 gets some pretty awesome updates to the frame which include full length internal cable routing for the rear derailleur and rear brake, as well as full stealth dropper cable routing for a SUPER PRO look. See some of our images above, a few have droppers installed. Look Mom, no more cables! We've also got several dropper posts available for an up-charge, we are working on getting this added but please contact us to quote if you are thinking about a blinged out Christmas bike.
Pro Level builds in 2019 get some pretty awesome components. Our new TC30 fork has 80mm or plus travel and gets a carbon fiber bonded to alloy lowers to save weight. Custom Stans 24 spoke Crest MK3 rims laced to superlight 374 gram hubs wheelset to reduce even more rotational weight at just 1242 grams. We spec an 11-42 cassette on ALL of our builds so your young rider will spend more time in the saddle rather than pushing uphill. Additionally, we've launched our new Trailcraft direct mount cranks with aluminum spindle which sheds over 100 grams from our previous square tapered style crank. You can also select a 26, 28, 30 or 32 tooth narrow-wide style chainring up front depending on the vertical radness you will be riding together.
This is the most configuration in its category for a kids mountain bike. Most adult bikes don't even offer this level of customization or build options!

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!
The 2019 Pineridge 24 has it all - a high performance "new school" 24-inch frame geometry, super light weight components, and 5 cool color options to choose from. Life is too short to settle on one bike color and one generic bike build level when cool options present themselves NOW! We invite you to custom build your kids next dream bike!
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. Our bikes start in the low 21 pound range and at that weight have an 11-42 cassette, pedals, lock-on grips and even a chainstay protector. All of our Pineridge 24 bikes feature a short 385mm 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.
We have three complete bikes options, and all of our bikes get a super light 1x drivetrain using an 11-42 cassette right out of the box. This is a small detail overlooked by the other companies. Our kids don't like walking hills, and I am sure yours don't either! ALL level bike builds also get our new lightweight 140mm Trailcraft aluminum spindle direct mount cranks with your choice of 26, 28, 30 or 32 tooth narrow-wide style chainring.
Pineridge 24 Pro models get our Stans Crest MK3 Custom 1250 gram wheelset with color matched decals. Superlight 370 gram hubs laced to 24-inch Stans Crest rims totaling just 1250 grams.
Pineridge 24 Special Build model gets our Trailcraft Wheelset with color matched decals and 96 gram ultralight Avid rotors.
-Ashima 85 gram rotors come stock on PRO 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. Both wheel sets also feature Schwalbe Rocket Ron 24-inch Performance series tires. These tires have a folding bead, come in at a low 450 gram weight, and have great tread which excels in most conditions tested from hard pack to rich loamy high country dirt. Stans yellow tape is installed so all you need to do is add sealant if choose to go the tubeless route to shed even more weight.
Trailcraft TC30 fork on PRO XT and PRO Deore level builds- 80mm of super plush suspension in a 1590 gram package with carbon/alloy lowers.
RST F1rst air sprung suspension fork on our Special Build level bike.
