 We are now building Elite and PRO level bikes in LAVA, Green and BLACK colors with an estimated ship date 3-5 days after you order your bike!  Order now to guarantee a Trailcraft for the 2022 riding season while we CURRENTLY have all the parts to build bikes! 

Introducing the all new 2020 Timber 26 carbon. With category-leading weights in a 26-inch wheel platform, this is the lightest production 26" bike you can buy for your aspiring little racer today.  Each bike is special built just for you in our Fort Collins, Colorado workshop.

Our new Timber 26 Carbon bike weights are starting at 19.29 pounds if you choose the Trailcraft Carbon 26 wheelset option and SRAM AXS level build.  All components on this bike are best in category, from our Trailcraft 152mm direct-mount cranks with aluminum spindle all the way down to the 1300 gram carbon wheelset. The 26" wheel size is coming back for kids in a huge way!

We developed the Timber 26 Carbon mountain bike to be the perfect transition from the 24" wheel size to the 26" wheel size without having to settle for an XS size 27.5" bike--or a 26+ pound bike weight!  Most 27.5" bikes are still just too big, long, and heavy for high-performance riding coming off of a 24" wheel bike.  Our Timber 26 Carbon is the ideal next size up from 24" and will continue to take your kids riding and bike handling skills to the next level. All at about 20 pounds.

Our end goal is to build the lightest production 26" bike with best in category frame, wheels, and component spec so kids can dominate the trails.

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!
