Our new Timber 26 Special Build is a lightweight leader! This bike comes out of the box at just 22.7 (with pedals!) set up tubeless and has best in category components including a fresh new geometry.
Our 2020 Timber 26 frame gets the Trailcraft Cycles "New School Geometry Treatment" which includes a super short yet stable 419mm chainstays out back, super short head tube, and low standover height for young riders coming off 24" bikes! The super responsive rear end tracks so well allowing for quick line changes, manuals, and wheelies over trail chunder. We slacked out the head tube angle to 68mm (from 70mm) to inspire descending confidence, and routed all cables inside the frame for a super clean system and even added full stealth internal dropper routing! The result is a super lightweight, fun to ride bike that will take your young riding partner to the next level in their early riding career. This is THE bike for riders coming off 24" bikes in the 4'6"-5'1" height range.
There is so much awesomeness with this build spec which takes it to the next level and keeps weight SUPER low...pounds lighter than anything else on the market thanks in part to:
- Custom 1290 gram wheelset featuring Stans Podium rims (298 grams!) are laced to Superlight hubs. rims/racing wheelset is super light!
- TC32 CARBON fork features carbon lowers to keep weight low, 32mm stanchions are stiff and shiny black stanchions are super smooth!
- Trailcraft 152mm direct-mount cranks with aluminum spindle keeps weight low!
This Timber 26 Special Build is built for the natural progression and next level of riding coming off a Pineridge 24", or any 24" size mountain bike. We developed the Timber 26" 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 like most of our competition in the category! We found with our own kids that most 27.5" bikes are just too big, too long, and most important too heavy for high performance mountain bike riding coming off of a 24" wheel bike. The 27.5" wheel height/weight increases, typically has longer wheelbase, taller center of gravity and several other factors negate the skills your kids developed on their 24" bike. Our Timber 26 is the ideal next size up from 24" and will continue to take their riding and bike handling skills to the next level.
Why settle for just one bland color like most of the other kids bikes out there? This bike comes in three awesome colors and with a weight of just 22.7 pounds tubeless - this bike is ready to dominate your local trails in 2020!
