A great first bike, Specialized's Boy’s Hotrock 12 Coaster is a cool way to get kids started. Its lightweight aluminum frame makes pedaling easy and the quality construction ensures you'll be able to hand this tot rod down. Plus, the comfortable saddle, grippy tires, easy-to-use coaster brake and strong steel training wheels make the Hotrock great fun to learn on.
We got this for my boy's 3rd birthday. He was riding a balance bike before, and he was ready for a step up. I compared this to another brand's 12" bike, which is also very nice, but this one is much lighter yet only a little more expensive. The weight difference alone sold me. It makes a big difference when the kiddos have to pick it up, push it over obstacles, etc. He loves it! We liked enough that we bought another one for my 2 year old, now that we took the training wheels off the first one. It's worth the extra $ - you and your child won't be disappointed!
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
