Trailcraft Cycles Builds 24-Inch Wheel Mountain Bikes To Make Young Riders Fly

Trailcraft-Kid-1Faced with the problem of trying to outfit her son with an appropriate bike, Ginger Rosenbauer didn’t care for the fact that most of the choices weighed almost half of what he did, and were woefully inappropriate for actual off road riding. Located in Fort Collins, CO, they were already able to do a lot of design, prototyping and production this year, and they are ready to go to market.

Launching by using Kickstarter, they already have the first production available for delivery before the holidays. Rosenbauer says “One of the most valuable benefits of the Pineridge 24 are the memories made together on the bike as a family. The awesome ride quality and lightweight components of the Pineridge 24 has allowed for longer more enjoyable rides, creating fun times on the trail together, and a lifetime of memories. This time and connection together is priceless.” Check out this kids bike with lots of attention to detail after the jump…

Suntour North America Launches Consumer Direct Aftermarket Website To Better Serve Customers & Dealers

EmarketLaunch_small

Suntour North America has announced that they are open for business with a new direct sales website. Citing that even after getting good reviews in print and media, and having millions of forks in circulation, distributors and some dealers were not picking up the brand, leaving consumers trying to figure out where to purchase Suntour and dealers struggling to find replacement parts.

The site design has been used for the previous few years for warranty registration and tracking, and their system has helped them reduce the processing time of claims. Moving into sales, the site will be able to sign up registered users based on whether they are a consumer or dealer, and sell them appropriate parts at the right price structure, as well as allow Suntour to send out news letters on a regular basis or issue promotions.

Nick Hannah-Moore from Suntour North America said “SSNA has a goal that this Aftermarket Sales Website will not only increase sales but continue to strengthen our OEM relationships even further by giving their customers more support and aftercare to the products that they are purchasing years down the road.”

The new emarket consumer website is up, working and ready for business. Suntour will also continue to operate the standard North American website for product info.
