2015 Specialized Boy's Hotrock 20 Coaster

Specialized's Boy's Hotrock 20 Coaster is an easy way for little kids to step up to big-time fun. It features an aluminum frame built to withstand the rigors of childhood bike riding and a rear hand brake to get him ready for bigger bikes down the road, while the coaster brake provides a familiar backup to facilitate the learning process. Plus, the Hotrock comes with fat, knobby tires for serious traction on all types of terrain, too.

Comments:

My 5 year old was riding a 12" Specialized Hotrock, and needed to upgrade. The 16" Hotrock was the right size, but easily outgrown. We compared dozens of bikes, the 18"ers we found were heavy and cheap. Went to the local shop and they removed the rear reflector from the 20" Hotrock and dropped the seat down all the way. It was the lowest of any 20" and almost where the 18"ers sat. The bigger wheels roll over bumps, the breaks are amazing he stops without skidding and can touch his toes on either side. This bike can scale up for years. The chain guard can get pushed against the pedal, but just reset with your hand- its thin metal. Tires are upgrades and seat is top notch. I'm 5'10" 180lbs and I rode around on this thing with no worries.

      My so uses this to ride with me around the neighborhood and downtown. Comfortable all around bike that does a little bit of everything very well. This is his second Specialized. He had the 16" as his first pedal bike so when we outgrew it we went to this 20".

        I have bought two of these for my kids and they love the bikes. They can cover vast terrain and we have never had mechanical problems. The front end is lighter than others, which helps them learn how to pop curbs.

                My two boys have owned 3 Treks and they rusted and sucked. We bought a Specilized two years ago and we're buying the same bike for my 5 yr old, its that good. Three of my older sons friends bought the same bike after riding his, and everyone of his buddys thinks its cool.[...]

                  I got this bike for my 4 year old son after much online research. I went in to purchase the 16" Hotrock, but the salesperson recommended the 20" after seeing my son (45" tall). Ater a little getting used to, he was flying around on the bike. It is much lighter than other cheaper 20" bikes and is built very solid. I am thrilled that I spent a little bit more to get a bike that will probably last him several years.
