Bike info

The Nerd JR is a hardcore kids bike with 120mm travel front and rear, 24” wheels. Lots of effort has gone into dialing this bike. Our goal was to make it capable of growing with the child and making it suitable for many different types of mountain bike riding - anything from XC to freeride. One of the key features is the possibility to upgrade the bike to 26” when the time comes. This raises the BB which then allows the bike to accommodate longer cranks. The cockpit has lots of adjustability meaning it can be set up to fit the size of the rider. Developed and tested by the NS Bikes founder’s son, this is really a dream kid’s bike.


Alloy frame with 120mm travel
24” wheels (will accept 26”)
Air shocks front and rear
Hydraulic disc brakes
Shimano Deore 1X drivetrain

The Nerd bikes are all about fun - light, efficient and strong.


The philosophy behind the development of these frames was to keep things as simple as possible and provide great price, performance and reliability. And indeed - all the models in the range received stellar grades from our development team and test riders. The range includes the Nerd Lite - an aggressive 29” new-school trail bike with 120mm frame travel and modern geometry. On the other side of the spectrum you will find the Nerd HD - a long travel machine for Enduro and bike parks with a unique 29” front and 27.5” rear wheel setup. And then there is the Nerd JR - the ultimate kids full suspension bike supplied with 24” wheels, but with an option to upgrade to 26”.
