Description

Description

Our Pineridge 24 boasts impressive components, and we're further reducing weight with our latest builds. Our new TC30 suspension fork, a super light upgrade option, features 80mm travel and carbon lowers to save weight. It stands as the lightest proper 24" suspension fork available, weighing just 1475 grams.

 

We're able to shave off pounds compared to our competition (literally), and it all begins with the 7005 series aluminum frame. While most other companies utilize 6000 series aluminum or heavier tubing, we prioritize lightweight construction. We meticulously select the absolute best components for the Pineridge 24, ensuring every decision is driven by weight reduction. For a lean 45-pound rider, even shedding 2-3 pounds can make a significant difference in riding performance.

*COVID parts availability advisory: The bike industry is currently having trouble keeping up with demand in these strange times. Standard builds purchased from the website might include unavailable parts at which point we will replace them with equivalent parts (and upgraded parts in some cases) due to supplier availability. Please reach out to us directly if you have any questions or would like to ensure your build includes any specific parts.

 

This is the absolute best 24" hardtail mountain bike you can buy and is essentially an adult level bike shrunk down to a kids 24" size. 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 24" bike is 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 2022 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.

ASSEMBLED TO ORDER IN THE USA

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 examples. Each and every Trailcraft bike is assembled to order in Fort Collins, Colorado USA. You can take comfort in knowing that when your bike order is placed your kids new dream bike is built by our master builders from the frame up using American labor.  This process takes a few more days than buying "X brand" kids bike with one build option and most likely built/boxed in the far east (nothing wrong with that, we are a bit different and more of a custom shop).  As a result our bikes are WAY lighter, have WAY more attention to detail, and quality does take a bit longer than the typical online bike ordering experience. Our bikes typically take 5-7 business days (or more in busy season) to assemble and get it out the door once your order is placed.  We PROMISE the wait is worth it and these bikes will take your kids riding to the NEXT level!

    “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.

  5. Steve Cuellar (verified owner)

    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!!!

  6. Chris Bencher

    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.

  9. Will

    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).

  11. ericiversoneric

    Wow, blown away! Very well thought out design. This is a kid specific, high performance setup, that blows away the comparable offerings from the large, big name bike companies. The brake and derailleur adjustment was spot on out of the box, zero noise or rubbing. We opted for the tubeless setup (sealant already installed) when ordering, so once I installed the handlebars, grips, and levers, it was just a matter of tweaking the air pressure in the fork and tires, and our daughter was off and riding. The customer service was awesome, with Brett taking the time to chat on the phone, and set us up with a build level that was appropriate for our daughter. Amazingly high quality bike, our daughter loves it!

    My twins haven’t ridden these yet, but I have built them up. I have one big serious problem now: *I* want one. I’m rather short, so maybe I’d just fit :-). They really are crazy light (much lighter than my kids’ 20 inch w/ no suspension), which is why I got them. The cockpit is clearly sized for kids. I look forward to seeing how my kids graduate from BMX parks to the trail … NOTE: you can’t really see the nuance in color choices online, e.g. blue => more like metallic blue (nice), neon green => flat (expected).

  13. Jennifer Johnson (verified owner)

    Thank you so much to the Trailcraft Crew. You guys have been so awesome helping me get my daughter’s Pineridge 24 set up just right for her. Customer service has been amazing! She loves the new bike, how easy it is to climb, shift and brake. The cockpit is so well designed for small hands. Climbing and descending single track are so much safer on this geometry. Excited for all the time we will spend together riding the next few years while I can still keep up! Can’t recommend enough. Thank you for offering this great product to kids. They are the ones who deserve light bikes. Keep up the good work.
