2011 Specialized Hotrock Weights
We always have people asking about our kids bikes and what makes them different from the rest. There are many things on that list, but if we were to touch on just one of those it would be weight.
Why is weight important?
The example I like to use is that if you take a your average 40lb 5 year old and give them a 40lb bike, it is about the same as giving your average 180lb adult a 180lb bike and trying to ride it. When kids are trying to develope balance, why handicap them with a heavy bike? I encourage people when buying a kid’s bike to ask the weight or ask for the sales person to weight it. Here are the weights some of the Specialized Hotrocks.
