Description

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!

 

Features

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.

Wheelset Options:

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.

Fork:

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. 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!

Component Level Options:

Pro XT Shimano M8000 - 1x11 component group featuring Shimano XT rear derailleur, XT 11-42 rear cassette, XT 11 speed rear shifter, and XT front/rear brakes.

    “The Trailcraft is a complete game changer climbing is no longer the chore it was on the other bike and my son has really upped his climbing to reap the rewards of the descents with a bike that handles so well.”

    I just wanted to thank you for designing and building such awesome bikes!!!
    With the the warm weather here in Utah we decided to get in a few rides before winter settles in. (So much for waiting until Christmas!!!)
    My boys are riding on a whole new level. They can easily climb in the saddle on climbs where they couldn’t get up even out of the saddle before, on their old bikes.
    We rode double the time we could before with plenty of energy left. The boys are having more fun with way less drama, which means I am, too. Money well spent!!!
    Thanks again!!

    Trailcraft definitely makes the best bike out there in the 24 inch range. My daughter loves her Pineridge 24 and is having more fun on rides. The lighter bike with high quality components has made a world of difference on technical trails and has boosted her confidence. We get more ride time and she is enjoying the sport. Its a plus for both of us!

    My eight year old son has had his Pineridge Special Build for about a month now. Immediately when the bike arrived I could see and feel the quality that goes into these bikes. Within just a few short rides my son was already conquering new sections of technical single track, both climbs and descents. I could not be happier with the bike, Trailcraft’s customer service, and most of all the fun times we are having out on our trails.

    All I got to say is this bike rocks! I bought my 6 year old the Pineridge 24 and I can’t believe how well he rides it just because it’s so much lighter than his specialized hotrock 20” lol. Bigger and lighter no more front derailleur so it makes it easier and the gearing is so much better with the front 28t sprocket. He’s doing some climbs I didn’t think he would be doing for another year. Pretty impressive how well he’s doing just because of the confidence he’s gotten because of this bike makes our riding experience so much more fun. He can’t wait to race it in the spring! Thanks Brett- your bikes Rock!!!

    Thank you Ginger.

    Since my son got his Trailcraft, he beats me to the top of all the mountains now – It’s making me look bad. I could not have asked for anything more from his Trailcraft 24…. A perfect bike proportioned for a pre-teen; Thank you so much for filling the gap in the market. The component quality is tops, assembly is super tight, and everything perfectly calibrated. The blue paint is gorgeous; the bike gleams in the sun and makes me salivate every time I just look at it. I feel both pride and envy. It has been more than 1 year of riding and the bike does not even have a single squeak, click, or rattle – and the paint still gleams. Even after a day of riding, the frame seems to be “anti-stick” to the trail-powder and even gleams after the ride (do you Teflon coat these frames?).

    Sincerely,
    Chris

    Echoing what others have said. Trailcraft Cycles Pineridge is a total game changer. On our first trail ride we were making it up hills we have always walked before. The bike came preassembled and was in great shape. I am a bike mechanic and the bike needed no adjustments, no big manufacturer can manage that.
    The bike has been named the “Purple Monster” as it is able to “monster” over roots and rocks. We will have smiles for miles to come I am sure.
    Thanks to Ginger and all the crew.
    Regards,
    Nick, Amanda and most importantly Fiona

    My son loves this bike! Thanks to the lightweight build and great handling his confidence has dramatically increased along with his abilities. The terrain around where we live is very unforgiving and he now pedals in places that I regularly see adults walking. Thank you so much for making the ultimate 24″ mountain bike. All of the little details really make a difference.

    I bought my son a Pineridge 24 almost two years and it’s been incredible. If you haven’t seen one in person, it’s a night and day (and 10 or 12 lb) difference from even the nicest kids bikes at a bike shop. And the differences are even more apparent on the trail. I highly recommend this bike and Trailcraft as a company and fully plan on getting him one of their 26s in the next year or so.

      Hi Will- thanks for the great review for our website on the Pineridge 24! I hope your family is doing well and having a lot of fun adventures this summer. Fun times with these kids for sure! Cheers, Ginger and Brett

    My older so has been riding and racing his Pineridge 24 for the last two years, falling in love with the sport.
    The best part is all the quality time we spend together on the trails.
    His bike is still in great shape with normal maintenance, and next year will be used by his little brother, and then likely by their little sister in a couple of years.
    You cannot go wrong when you invest in a quality product.
    I will likely have my three kids on Trailcraft bikes next year (Blue Sky 20 / Pineridge 24 / Maxwell 26).
