Trailcraft Cycles Big Mesa 26-plus kids hardtail mountain bike

Trailcraft Cycles helped usher in the current era of premium youth mountain bikes, and now they’re bringing more styles to the kids with their all-new Maxwell full suspension line and Big Mesa 26″+ bike. They’ve also updated their Pineridge 24″ and Timber 26″ hardtail mountain bikes with more shapely tubsets, and they’re offering a direct mount 1x chainring for their short, kid-sized cranks. What’s even more interesting is that several of the bikes are sized to fit short adults, and the 26+ hardtail can even run 27.5″ wheels and tires!
