I am selling my son's 15.5" Trek X-Caliber 7 after a few good summers of loving it. It is mostly stock except for the following upgrades: 1x10 drivetrain, Sram X9 deraileur, Sram X7 shifter, Maxxis Ardent 2.4" tires setup tubeless. I will also include the original Bontrager XR2 27.5x2.2" wire bead tires. There are some scratches in the paint as expected from a mountain bike ridden by a kid. The full specs for the build are below: Frame: Trek X-Caliber 7, 15.5" Fork: Rockshox XC 30, 100mm, TK medium coil, QR Wheels: Bontrager AT-650 with tubeless tape (tires setup tubeless) Tires: Maxxis Ardent 27.5x2.4 front & rear, 60TPI, setup tubeless (also included original Bontrager XR2 27.5x2.2 wire bead tires) Crank: Shimano Acera, 170mm arms Chainring: 30t Pedals: Thermalite nylon, white Brakes: Shimano BR-M355 hydraulic disc Rotors: Shimano Cassette: Sram 11-36, 10 speed Derailleur: Sram X9 (upgrade) Shifter: Sram X7 (upgrade) Handlesbars: Bontrager RL, cut to 690 mm Grips: Marque lock-on (green) missing endcaps Stem: Bontrager RL, 70mm Saddle: Bontrager Evoke 1.5 Seatpost: Race Face Ride 27.2 (upgrade) Seatpost collar: Bontrager I would consider trades for 29" carbon boost wheels, and/or a Schmidt SON28 dynamo boost front hub (by itself or built to a 29" wheel/wheelset) If you have any questions or would like to see a specific closeup photo of a part of the bike, please ask! I will ship the bike using Bike Flights anywhere within North America. If interested, shoot me your zip code and I'll get a quote for shipping. Usually, shipping can cost anywhere from $100 to $200, depending how far away you live from northeast Wisconsin.

I built this Trek Superfly 26 for my kids, and now that they've grown out of it, its time to move on. I built this bike from the frame up with appropriately sized components for kids. There are a few brand new components as I took off the originals to transfer to my kid's new bike. The 165mm crank, pedals, and Shimano brakes are brand new. The standover height is 25 inches. The bike weighs 25 lbs, 8 oz (with tubes and pedals). I am getting a lot of questions about how tall my boys were when they rode it. They both rode this bike between the heights or 4'4" and 5'2". I will say that my younger son was a little short for this bike when he first started riding it when he was 4'4". But the big wheels helped him conquer big obstacles in the trail better than 24" tires. (According to Trek's website, kid's 26" wheeled bikes should comfortably fit a kid between 4'9" and 5'3".) ***Please note that this frame is a prototype Superfly frame from Trek. Living in Wisconsin, some of Trek's prototype frames become available from time to time and I was lucky to snatch this one up. The only thing different from the production frame is that the headtube is not tapered on this frame, so the Rockshox 30 TK Gold fork on the bike has a straight steerer rather than tapered. Also, the decals are not the production decals that have a layer of clearcoat over them. The Trek decals on either side of the downtube are vinyl that were applied on top of the frame paint and could be pealed off if you wanted. The frame itself has some scrapes and paint chips as expected from a used kids bike. There are no dents in the frame. Bike Notes: The crank, chainring and pedals are brand new. The crank is a Shimano XT knockoff (iXF from Amazon). The chainring is a 30t (also from Amazon). The pedals are cheap nylon pedals (red to match the crank, grips and Trek decals). The Shimano BR-M365 hydraulic brakes are also new. The wheels are tubeless ready. I had Maxxis Ardent 2.4's on the front and rear, setup tubeless and they fit great, and held air fine. The tires that are mounted now are Kenda Nevegal Pro 2.1 rear, 2.35 front. There are tubes in the tires. They do not indicate that they are tubeless-ready tires, but they are folding bead, so they should be capable of going tubeless if you choose. The full specs for the build are below: Frame: Trek Superfly 26 (prototype) Fork: Rockshox 30 TK Gold, 80mm, solo air, QR Wheels: Bontrager Race Lite Tubeless ready (tape installed) Tires: Kenda Nevegal Pro 60TPI (26x2.35 front, 26x2.1 rear) Crank: iXF (Shimano XT knockoff) 170mm arms Chainring: 30t (JGbike) Pedals: nylon (red to match crank and Trek decals) Brakes: Shimano BR-M365 (brand new) Rotors: Shimano centerlock Cassette: Shimano 11-40, 10 speed (HG500 11-36 with upgraded large cog to 40t) Derailleur: Shimano SLX Shifter: Shimano XT Handlesbars: Bontrager RL, cut to 665mm Grips: Marque lock-on (red) missing endcaps Stem: Bontrager, 80mm Saddle: Bontrager Evoke 1.5 Seatpost: Bontrager 27.2 Seatpost collar: Bontrager I would consider trades for 29" carbon boost wheels.
