This is a special Ride Review for a couple of reasons; 1) This rad Trailcraft Cycles Maxwell 27.5, and all Trailcraft Cycles bikes are developed and assembled locally in Fort Collins by Brett and Ginger Rosenbauer and their crew. 2) Trailcraft Cycles came on as a YGR advertiser this past Spring sponsoring the Trailcraft Cycles Kid’s Zone. 3) I gave this bike to my daughter Lucy after she rode her bike to school last year and helped launch the Webber Middle School mountain bike club. I surprised/terrified her with it on the last day of school by replacing her commuter bike with it.  She initially thought her mom’s 1958 Schwinn Starlet had been stolen from her usual parking spot until she saw her helmet dangling from the handlebar.  She finally put it all together when I rolled up on her laughing and videoing.
