2016/2017 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.

Awesome strong and safe and superfast first real bike :)

My 6 year old races around on this even though it's now definitely too small (12"). We are looking to size up and the tips about sizing down the 20" from the previous reviewer are much appreciated :) My son's little mate always wants to borrow it as it's so much faster... It's a great bike, top quality and fun (and the red is hot!)

    This is the second hotrock we've bought for our DAUGHTER. We love these bikes! I just really need to point out that GIRLS like other colors besides pink and purple, and my girl loved her 16" black and orange hotrock until she outgrew it, and she loves her lime green one! HEr baby sister will grow into both of these bikes that everyone calls "boys" bikes. One big reason our daughter specifically wanted these and not the purple bike is because she's never seen a single purple, pink, or aqua girly bike at any of the local ramp parks or trails. We purposefully did not point out to her that there are not only no other girly bikes, but no other girls there. We won't get any more girls into the sport if we keep labeling cool bikes as "boys" bikes like it's 1950!! Not even the Specialized website does this, so please, mike's bikes, pick a better message to send in your descriptions!!

    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.
